My Favorite Spring Paint Color and Where I’ve Used It

Spring Log Home Porch Makeover Using Blues and Greens

Do you ever just fall in love with a paint color and know that its just perfect and can be used over and over and you never tire of it? Well this green paint by Sherwin Williams in PRIVILEGE GREEN is that color for me! I even buy clothing in this color and delight when I find a new piece.

Spring Log Home Porch Makeover Using Blues and Greens

The old wooden crate pained green added a lot of color to the porch. I’d used it in its natural wood color for years and one day got a whim to paint it and it was a good choice. The green is such an improvement and gives the porch some much needed color.

Today I’m part of the cozy living series hosted by Jennifer. Once a month we share ideas we’d think you’d like to see and incorporate into your home, garden, and life. All you need to do to see the other ideas is click the thumbnail links at the bottom of this post for more inspiration.

I live in a log cabin which means lots of wood, lots and lots of wood, and this girl gets tired of. The only way I have to inject color is with fabric and painted pieces in our home. Our exterior door on the inside give the cabin a pop of color painted with PRIVILEGE GREEN.

Also our blanket storage armoire thats kept in the master bedroom is that glorious green. I limit myself to only keeping blankets, quilts, and sheets that will fit in the armoire. If I feel the need to have something new I also have to weed out something old or before you know it I have to much stuff.

Rustic Log Home Porch Using Green, Blue, Boston Ferns, Shutters

An old shutter is used on the side porch entrance to hold my gardening tools in the spring and summer along with a rustic birdhouse that’s always in use. The birds are just starting to nest in my neck of the woods and I enjoy watching the process while seated on the steps.

I took a huge leap when I pained the back side of the kitchen island in green. My dream kitchen always was to have white cabinets, which I do have but the pop of color really works and it also hides any boot scuff marks that get left from sitting at the island. It was a win win situation.

I picked this desk up at TJMaxx, originally it was a wood tone color and worked perfect when I had it in my office but once I moved it to the living room corner to use for my Bible study and art desk it need paint and you guessed it green was the color. That corner of the house is dark and the green stands out much better than the wood tone did.

Once I’d painted the back of the island green I felt like it needed a rustic touch so I scuffed up the paint with my orbital sander and stenciled they year we started building the cabin over the green. If you ever want to read about our no mortgage build you can read that here.

  1. That’s a gorgeous shade of green, Dawn! Love your blanket cabinet and your corner desk. I never realized your island had the year your house was built on it – that’s a really nice touch. I’ve fallen in love with green all over and just added Evergreen Fog (also Sherwin Williams) to my bedroom. Maybe I’ll show it at our next cozy living post. 🙂

    1. Yes, Jennifer that SW color is beautiful. The smoky muddy tone is a great neutral in my opinion. SW paint colors are my favorite anyway.

  2. Marilyn Holeman says:

    Dawn, I love that green, and also love the beautiful purple and white flowers on the porch under the birdhouse. What flowers are they? Thanks for sharing!

    1. Marilyn I have no idea what the flowers are. I had the nursery make up those containers that year. I just told them to use purple and thats what I got. LOL. Guess I should have asked.

      1. Marilyn Holeman says:

        Ha ha ha! I love purple, too. Thanks!

    1. Thank you Jeanie:) I’ve used it so much I dont think theres anything else to paint in my place, LOL

  3. What a versatile paint color! It looks wonderful on everything you’ve used it on. I LOVE your island!

    1. Thanks Danielle, painting the island was a big deal for me after wanting all white for so long.

  4. I love the green you’re using. I’ve always loved the color green, but have tried to get away from it using different colors but you may have just inspired me to get back into it!
    Pretty uses.

  5. I’m also loving green right now! I had not seen this shade before, so thanks for the intro to it! It looks so good and have pinned it for reference!!

    1. Doreen, this green is a cool green so it helps dull down the orange tone of all our wood. Thanks for the PIN!
