I have noticed a predominance of teal and peacock greens in recent home decor magazines, greens and blues are my favourite colours (no surprise there) and I love the richness of these shades. I have been drooling over some of the beautiful items featured in Real Living and House & Garden and online magazines and was happy to find a few really nice pieces of my own on a recent Op Shop hunt.
Firstly, I picked up this cane side table for $10 at Salvos, it was dusty and flaky and was practically screaming "Paint Me"!!! Coloured cane, rattan or bamboo is another popular look at the moment and one I love.
A couple of coats of "Heritage Green" spray paint have transformed it into something really pretty...
For once I had the foresight to take a "Before" shot.
This lovely teal lamp base was $6 in Salvos, the shade is from Target.
A peacock green vase - $3 in Salvos. Birdie - $2 in Salvos.
A squiggly wicker bowl - $4 in Salvos (I say bowl but my youngest has decided it's a hat and wears it accordingly :-)
