Welcome to our new series ~ My Five Favorites!
I'm so excited to be kicking it off with some of my awesome blogging friends.
You might recognize the group from Best of the Nest, well we were ready for a fresh
idea, and all agreed there's nothing we love more than tried and true blogger
recommendations and thus created
My Five Favorites
The first Tuesday of the month we'll each share our Five Favorites on a
specific topic, up first Five Favorite Paint Colors.
A special guest will be joining the four of us every month and today we're so happy
our talented friend
will be giving us the scoop on her favorites.
Long before Benjamin Moore named Simply White their 2016 Color of the Year
it was my favorite go-to white paint. The soft warm hue with no yellow undertones,
but the fresh, clean characteristics of white won me over.
Here are a few rooms where I've used it.
A couple days before their announcement I sourced it for an entire new build,
we're still a few months away from completion but I can't wait to show you
what a gorgeous backdrop the color will be.
Benjamin Moore - Simply White Studio McGee
Sherwin Williams - Extra White is a crisp bright white I like for cabinets and
trim. I also used it to repaint my tile in my kitchen update.
My favorite dark color is Mined Coal by Behr, a deep moody charcoal with a lot
of depth. I first used it in my son's room makeover, then in our bathroom.
Not the prettiest photo (above) but a better representation of the color without the sunlight.

If you've been reading my blog for any time at all you've probably heard me
go on about how much I LOVE to use Rustoleum Protective Enamel to paint
furniture. I was smitten with the lacquer like reflective finish from the first piece
I painted. Yes, it is oil based and requires a bit more work to clean up but I promise
it's worth every minute!
Rustoleum Protective Enamel Gloss - Almond
Rustoleum Protective Enamel Gloss - Black
More of the same beautiful finish in glossy black.
