DIY Robin's Egg Blue Spring Pedestal Dish

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

The ice bucket looked like this... It really wasn't a bad ice bucket, I actually thought it had great bones!

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.

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

I made these 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!
