TIFFANY BLUE WEEKEND PROJECT

Sometimes all it takes is a little paint......

a somewhat lackluster and worse-for-wear cube shelf from West Elm

and VOILA! A new "frame" to showcase your favorite tschokes. A mini gallery.
The color does not show up well in these photos, but I was aiming a shade or 2 lighter than a "Tiffany box" blue and this came out just right for me - a rarity with paint colors. Recession or not, I am all about transformations with the existing. It can be so gratifying when it comes out well! Do you have anything laying around that just needs a little "face lift"?

What a happy spring color lift! That's a clever little frame for changing around the things that inspire you. I have a few things that could benefit from a little spring paint.

Anne, You quickly grabbed my attention with that can of paint! You are right, blues can be funny. Just painted master bathroom a lighter shade of "Tiffany" blue. One of my favorite colors. Still trying to get used to it. Thinking it would have been smarter to have used a color more complimentary to the complexion in that area.
Your project turned out just great!
