American Home Collection
Imagine a perfect day: blue skies, a gentle breeze, family and friends, laughter and thick slices of watermelon!
Backyard Pond is a good-natured medium blue that nudges our memories of a perfect day and it’s reminiscent of a crystal blue pond!
Our retailers have been busy painting with Backyard Pond, and we hope you are excited and inspired to try Backyard Pond!
Robin Leighton, owner of Vivianne’s Pantry, Wainwright, AB, used a typical shelf/coat rack for her project, it was painted with Backyard Pond and black glaze was applied over top of the paint, this created depth and interest. We love how she’s transformed this shelf/coat rack and it’s sure to be a special piece in any home!
Cathy Prebich, of All Things New Again, Leesburg, VA, shares an updated bench that has been given new life! The original upholstered fabric had an animal print design on it and Backyard Pond was used to paint the fabric, and the bench frame was painted with Backyard Pond and Home Plate and it was sealed with clear wax. American Paint Company paint can be used for painting fabric too!
Linda Dohl owner of Poppy + Chalk, Culpepper, VA, shares a beautifully transformed vanity, mirror and chair set with us! Linda used a stain for the vanity top and painted each of the pieces with Backyard Pond and she used both clear and dark wax for her finish. Backyard Pond is a perfect compliment to the paisley fabric she used to upholster the seat cushion and we love what she’s created!
Maria Dade owner of, Youngest of Nine, Berlin, OH, shares a shadow box painted with Backyard Pond and finished with Top Coat. The edges have been slightly distressed and it has just the right amount of jewelry!
This sweet chair has been stenciled and painted in Backyard Pond making it worthy of that special person and it was painted by Tee Woodall owner of, Upcycled Vintage Charm, Centerville, OH!
This display hutch was painted by Jessie Clayton, ModBarn Designs, Buda, TX, she used a light wash of Backyard Pond to paint her piece and we love how beautiful it is!
Lori Masteroni, Twigs and Twine, Lakewood, CO, shares a beveled mirror painted with Backyard Pond and a mix of APC paint colors. The mirror was painted to look like the waters from the Grand Cayman, and she used a dry brush technique to apply the paint and finished it with clear wax and APC Pewter Mica. It is stunning!
