Delicious Colors To Add To Your Picnic Basket This Memorial Weekend

Get your Memorial Day weekend stared with color! 

Well hopefully you’re not painting this weekend and you can enjoy the sun and fun with your family and friends. However, if you’re taking advantage of this long weekend painting is the thing to do!

You might as well have fun with your colors and here I have a fun graphic that has some colors you might as well put right in your (pretend) picnic basket. From Apples and Pears to the actual Picnic Basket itself, these Benjamin Moore colors will certainly get you in the mood for food.

I love that Melted Ice Cream. Wouldn’t that make a great color for a baby girls room? Even Picnic Basket is great for the nursery if you’re having a boy.

Watermelon Red is a bright one! Where would you put that? It’s a great color for an accent feature for sure but be careful with red, it’s a challenge to get full coverage when painting. You can either use a tinted primer which will help or just stay with the great quality of Benjamin Moore paint which guarantees coverage in just two coats.

Spicy Mustard – yuk! I’m not a fan of that one at all but it may look great in your home. If you have dark wood floors and perhaps a nice big fireplace wall that is screaming for a strong hue to ground the room, that condiment color could be for you.

Last but not least, American Cheese. What a great color! Have a room that faces North? Brighten it up with this yellow. Even a small guest bath will welcome this hue for the loo and I’d take it right over the ceiling to keep the glow going. Add dark brown towels for contrast.

Have a great Memorial Weekend!
