Duck Egg Side Table

I have dreams.

Dreams of a sparkling clean house. . .

Dreams of an organized garage that you can actually park a car in. . .

Dreams of a Kitchen Scale blue pick-up truck. . .

Dreams of relaxing on a beach. . .

Chatting with my sweet hubby. . .

Watching my girls play in the ocean. . .

All from our own beach front house.

Complete with enough rooms for plenty of guests!

And, this table would fit in just perfect!

The How-To’s:

The top is pine that I sanded and waxed with Annie Sloan dark wax.

It is painted in Duck Egg,

and distressed to reveal a slightly darker color that it had been painted before.

Then, followed by a clear wax.

It is available for sale on my Facebook page!

Life to the full!

  4. beautiful! i love the layered look!!! great colors!

  5. Reading about your dream makes me miss San Diego, at least the way Pacific Beach used to be. There are many beaches to see there so guess I’d pick another one.
    Which beach would you have your house on? Desire Empire keeps showing incredible beaches/houses where she lives in Australia.
    Great table, love color and versatility, style of it.
    I’m so aggravated at hubs, we saw two very doable, affordable tables at thrift store today, all he could do was make negative comments. I feel like going back to buy them, do them over on my own, if they’re still there then it was meant for me to buy them. Think I might better get up earlier than usual tho, lol.

  6. So pretty!

  7. I like it! AND I like your dreams–may they all come true! ~Zuni

  21. I have to agree with everyone else and say that the color is gorgeous! It’s what drew me in from the link party 🙂

  22. Oh, Melissa, this is absolutely beautiful ~ and we have a lot of the same dreams. Thanks for sharing at Project Inspire{d} ~ pinning!

  23. Gosh, this makes me want to break out my duck egg paint and find something to paint! Absolutely lovely! Hope it sells soon!

  24. Oooh I adore the colour of that unit and completely comprehend your dreams. So many are similar to mine!! Found you via Flamingo toes party and am your newest follower! Thanks! J9 x

  25. I love the color and this little piece. So pretty. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  26. Love it and all your dreams! Sounds perfect =)
    This is perfect for my DIY link party. I hope you can join the fun!

  27. Darling side cabinet! Love the way the old color is peeking out under the duck egg blue.

    I have some of those same dreams! (especially the clean house! LOL…)

  29. Oh, I wish I had the space for it. What a great color and design.

  30. Is duck egg more of a greenish color, or more blue/green? Looks great!!

    • Duck Egg is a soft blue. The color looks a bit more green on this table, because the color underneath was green. So, when I distressed it, the green showed through.

  31. Beautiful! love the color!

  32. Nice piece! The color and distressing look perfect for this cute little “girl”! …I have similar dreams. Anything by the ocean is my favorite!

  33. The duck egg blue cabinet is gorgeous, and your dreams are, too. I cannot help but wonder if you put the pig with wings in the photos as a way to say some of these dreams will come true “when pigs fly.” 🙂


  34. I couldn’t find an email address for you anywhere. I would love to feature you on my Show Off and Inspire series. If you would be interested, plese email me at Hugs, Marty

    • My little envelope link is broken! I will get that fixed. I would LOVE. LOVE, LOVE to be a guest on your blog! You can reach me at

  35. Oh pretty! … My husband played the powerball lottery the other day with his poker buddies. They do that just a few times a year. If they won, they were going to buy a golf course and Kevin said I could get my dream truck. … Sadly, no winning ticket here!!

  36. That’s gorgeous, I love how you worked with the colour underneath, the combination is just stunning! (I found your site by googling images of Annie Sloan Duck Egg).

    xx Karen
