Painted Cigar Box

In an attempt to inject a bit of color into the black, and cream color scheme of the bedroom, I decided to paint a wooden box. Turquoise has been my favorite color for a few months. Since SH has vetoed repainting the bedroom walls, at least for another few years, and then "NOT TURQUOISE", I am limited in my approach.

Slapped a bit of paint on, and ta-da, a painted box. 

The light bouncing off of the paint.reminds me of the sun hitting the water, or if you must, some paint slapped on a wooden box. Either way, it makes me smile.


  1. Love the water effect! Thanks so much for sharing at our pin'inspiration party.

  2. This is beautiful! (I understand being vetoed on wall painting)

  3. Lisa this is quite beautiful. The cigar box was in wonderful shape - now it's a piece of art! I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
