Adding a Pop of Pantone Color

Pantone Radiant Orchid

Do you know what Valspar’s Pantone color of the year is? It’s Radiant Orchid. “Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health”

If you’re looking to add a pop of color into any room in your house Radiant Orchid fits the bill. “Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.”

Side Table

I found the perfect side table at a local junk antique store that I got for a song and dance. I absolutely love the details on the spindles and how the paint is already shabby chic-ing it up. All it needed was a POP  of color. I picked up a sample size of Valspar’s Radiant Orchid paint at Lowe’s Home Improvement as well as painters tape and a stipple brush. I had a stencil in our craft drawer from a previous project so we were good to go.


We started by making sure the surface was clean and dry. Then we placed the stencil in one of the corners, secured it on all sides with painters tape and gently dabbed on the paint using a stipple brush. It literally took 2 minutes per corner.


Voila one upcycled side table!

    So cute! I adore that table. People spend so much time trying to manufacture that shabby chic look–you can’t beat one that looks like that from the get-go! 🙂 Your stencils are just the right touch.
