Mint green is a gentle, soft colour that works beautifully in a vintage scheme. It is perfect teamed with red, and also looks lovely with other pastels such as pale pink, perfect for a little girls room. Or perhaps with chocolate brown for a boys room. I have acquired a few mint green finds from the side of the road and from thrift stores recently, and I’ve also been customising some of my existing pieces with a coat of mint green paint.
The little shot glass was given to me by a lovely stall holder at a market recently after a bought a set of amber drinking glasses from her. The vase was included in a bag of goodies I bought from a thrift store for $2. I wouldn’t have bought it on it’s own, but it works really well as part of a display of bottles on the cupboard I painted mint green. I found the little child’s chair on the side of the road. I now have four of then, all side of road finds!
This paint colour has been getting a real workout in my house. I painted my dining table with it then gave it an aged effect by roughing it up with some sandpaper. The table runner was a thrift store scarf that’s now been reinvented. Mint green, so fabulous! What do you think of this colour? Do you have any in your decor? I’d love to hear from you.
