Krylon Ocean Breeze - Beauty in a Can!



Oh, how I love thee, Blue Ocean Breeze!

I am sooo loving this paint! I picked it up at Wally World one day, not quite sure that it was going to work. I was looking for something to paint a stool with, and I wanted it to kinda match this McCoy bowl that I have in the bathroom holding shells from our 10th anniversary cruise to Mexico.

 

The stool, a yardsale find from years ago, started out as red. Here she is after her new paint job.



After a quick rubdown with some stain to shabby her up, I was absolutely smitten!

Today I found a new project for my Blue Ocean Breeze - the tallest dodad in this picture.


I was right before painting this baby white when I thought about my Blue Ocean Breeze...

 
 
I  am loving how it turned out! After a few coats of paint, I rubbed on a little stain to give it character. The stain seemed to melt off the paint in a couple of spots, but that just adds to the aged look. So now I have to give my mantle a spring make-over! It's just sitting up there waiting for some fabulous friends. =)

If you haven't tried this paint, get you some!!! It's soooo beautiful, and it's spray nozzle is cool, too. (No, this is not a paid endorsement...although I'm not against the idea!)

As a side note, this whole blogging thing will turn you into a picture-taking maniac. I've always taken thousands of pictures of my kids,  but they're cute and wiggly. Tonight I took twenty pictures of that bowl of shells. Twenty! Trying to get THE picture. I've always been a wee bit crazy, but this just takes the cake. So here's one more!


This has got me dreaming of sand between my toes!

  7. Wow..I have to buy that color, today. It's not as turquoise I'm used to, it's much subtler.

    Looks GREAT!

  16. Hi, I found your blog from Coastal Charm. The stool and architectural piece look great in Ocean Breeze. I have Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze paint too. Most blogs rave about the Rustoleum American Accents, but our stores here carry Krylon. Love the multi position nozzle too.

  19. Love the blue you chose. I am currently obsessed with all things brown, and due to my husband's request for something other than my beloved brown, I'm thinking that blue would be a nice compliment.

  28. Love the color you picked out! That is such a bright fun color!

    Ok - so on the pears - I know you said they turned out really bright when you stopped by the blog the other day! Try rubbing them down with a little brown shoe polish and then wipe with a wet paper towel! I did that with mine finally and they look so much more natural now.
