Hand-painted Bird and Surfside!

I've had this hand-painted salt box for some time now and thought I'd share it today. This beautiful bird was meticulously painted by some very talented artist a while ago and isn't it beautiful! 

This is another corner of our dining room where, as you can see, the walls are a sea foam color which is actually called surfside

Last summer, I decided to pull down the rose-patterned wallpaper we had enjoyed for nearly fifteen years and replace it with an updated cottage color. It's been really refreshing...nothing like a new coat of paint to spruce things up a bit!


  1. Hi Coralie, what a beautiful box. I love the paint color, you must share what brand paint that is.

  2. The "Surfside" paint is from American Traditional Signature Color—Seaside Retreat—from Lowe's. It's #SR903. It's bright but calming at the same time! Love it, too!

  3. What a great find that salt box Is. The wall color looks peaceful and calming as well as a perfect splash of color for your room.

  4. That picture is beautiful - what a lucky find!


  5. Lovely salt box ... setting is very pretty.

  6. Love your little salt box bird! I painted my "office" this same color and I love it too!
    Hope you have a beautiful Memorial Day weekend!
