I Have A New Favorite Color. Dill Pickle! Home Staging and Redesign Minneapolis MN

You know that jingle…..”Gedney…It’s the Minnesota Pickle”. Well….if you are not from MN you probably don’t know it but it is a great pickle made here in MN and their commercials can stick in your head for awhile.

When I go to the MN State Fair I always stop by the Dill Pickle booth and get the Fried Dill Pickles stuffed with Cream Cheese. OH MY GOSH is what I say.

Okay….I digress completely. This really is a Design Blog! Not a Food Blog!! LOL

As much as I love Pickles and as much as my favorite color is Lime Green….there is a paint color by Benjamin Moore called Dill Pickle so how could it be bad?? And it’s not.


I have been wanting to paint this boring white outdoor table I have for 2 years. Plus the tin top had gotten very weather beaten.

I finally got a little break in my schedule and got going.

It was okay white….but it’s outside. Let’s have some fun!



Table After


So there is Dill Pickle the paint color for you. What do you think?

I spray painted the worn stainless nautical lamp in gloss white as well to perk that up. Much better.


Table After


This color is part of Color Preview by Benjamin Moore. A collection of bold, saturated colors that brings spaces to life for those looking to illuminate their world with pure, extraordinary color.

Have some fun! Eat Dill Pickles and paint Dill Pickle. It’s only paint for crying out loud!


Be Inspired! Add some pieces that make you smile.

Free Paint on Saturday!

Yes Irene..that’s what I said! Free paint on Saturday!

Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch paint anymore.

All day Saturday at your local ACE HARDWARE store they are giving away a quart of free paint to introduce a new premium paint found exclusively at ACE called Clark+Kensington.

Only a quart you say?? Hey…if you are picking out paint colors for a new room you need a quart to test it out on various walls so this is perfect.

Or if you are like me and have been putting off painting an ugly pine bookshelf you can paint it now for free as all you need is one quart. Or maybe you have a small table, bench or chair that needs a fun color??

See how many things you can do with a quart of paint! Clark+Kensington has the primer already included so I won’t even have to prime my ugly bookshelf first!

Let your Redesign or Home Staging juices flow!!

And here’s another secret…..ssshhhh….on Memorial Day weekend the paint is going to be $7 off per gallon! So get a free quart this weekend to test your color and then get the paint on Memorial Day weekend and save big!


I love my local Ace store! They are friendlyknowledgeable and

most important….available to help you unlike some Big Box stores.

They are each locally owned so even better! Check out your local ACE Hardware today and see if they are giving out free paint on Saturday too!
