DIY Robin's Egg Blue Spring Pedestal Dish

       This was a fun project repurposed from a 
very interesting ice bucket. 

DIY Robin's Egg Blue Spring Pedestal Dish.

The ice bucket looked like this...

The first project I made from these pieces was a no brainer. 

This hanging globe light was an easy project and is great for a little extra task lighting. 

Now for the rest of the pieces from this ice bucket...

I began by fitting what was once the top of the ice bucket to the wooden base.

I sprayed the inside of the metal dish with metallic finish spray paint

I painted the wooden base with Raw Silk by Fusion Mineral Paint.

And the bowl with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue.

DIY Spring Robin's Egg Blue Pedestal Dish.

I love the look of robin's eggs for the Spring. 

I made Robin's egg blue Mason Jars a few years back and I love the way they turned out. 

Just like real robin's eggs, I wanted a splatter painted look on the blue. 

I used brown craft paint and a stiff brush to add the splatter marks.

I used Pearl wax by Fusion Mineral Paint to give the blue paint a slight shine and a pearly look.

I filled the pedestal bowl with moss balls and faux succulents.

The bowl can also be filled with a large nest 
and eggs for Spring!

  1. I LOVE this, Susan... looks just like an oversize egg holder. Love the colors, and the speckles! Pinned to two boards!

    1. LOL yes it would be great for eggs at Easter! Thanks for pinning!

  2. This is so clever. Who doesn't love the color of a robin's egg. So fresh and nice for spring. Maybe that will bring it here faster. :)

    1. Thank you so much Patti and from your mouth to God's ear about an early Spring.

  3. What a great idea, Susan! I love how you've used both parts of this globe and repurposed them into fun home decor projects. I do love this robin's egg blue and I could see this bowl filled with shiny ornaments at Christmas, little wound wicker bolls for a coffee table display. Pretty!

    Enjoy your new bowl,
    Barb :)

    1. Thanks so much Barbara! I can't wait to fill it with Easter eggs :)

  4. Hi Susan, this is darling! I love the paint treatment and Robins Egg Blue is still one of my all time favorite colors! Pinned to my repurpose board!

  5. Susan the colors are beautiful but that splatter effect really takes it to the next level!

    1. Oh thank you so much Mary ! I love the look too!
