Inspired by Martha

I was looking for a bit of inspiration in my quest for all things pastel and found the photo below on Martha Stewart's website.
 Just the candy colored look I had in mind!

I had a practically full gallon of soft blue that I had used for our basement ceilings.
Behr "Ocean Kiss". Pretty name.
I only spent about  $10 for the quart of Behr paint tinted to match Martha Stewarts's "Punch" for my existing mirror.

Bye bye brown, hello sunshine!
Funny thing is, I think my powder room was a slightly darker version of this color several years ago. Huh. 
Now to do something about the vanity top.
Any suggestions?

Pin It!

I love seeing how people take inspiration and make it their own. I love the color combo. Have you tried formica paint? I have seen people in blogland use it and be successful. You could paint the counter top white or something pale in blue or grey...

It looks beautiful. A bit of "Spring" in your home. As for the countertop...I have the same type in my house and not a clue as to changing it.

I love everything about this post.....isn't the quote the truth? Our walls are still white.....and we finished our addition 12 years ago. I love how you painted the mirror!
