Paint Project Update

At the end of my last post I mentioned that I had a new table for my family room...

I painted it with milk paint...in artissimo. I am in love with the name and the colour:)
It is a rich, almost navy but not quite...sort of like a dusky night....

                                             here's what it looked like before...

 I like the way it pairs with this chair better at this height...(now should I paint the chair also?:)

while I was in paint mode I painted this chair also in artissimo but dark waxed it after.

I also tackled the cupboard in my laundry room....which had been an orangey oak before..

    here I used old white and antique wax...not sure if I'm happy with it,  But I can change it if                                           I decide to,that's the beauty of paint. right?

because I am not sure if it is the spring outside my door bursting and beckoning me..but I sense everything seems to be waking up and renewing...

                                                    Happy Monday!


  1. I like that dark grey...it really looks good with your light grey china hutch. Oh and the chair too...greys and whites are my favorite color palette. I was painting the sea in these shades this weekend to add to my Seawater Series.

  2. wow, your paint projects are coming along nicely. I'm not much of a painter, and I am having a hard time choosing what color to use just for the sides of a piece of artwork. I admire all that you've done with your table and chair and cupboards. It looks great, Lucy.


  3. Beautiful enhancements, Lucy, on all the pieces, and they look perfect in their existing surroundings. You are a very talented lady, my friend.

    Have a wonderful week!

    P.S.: Thanks for your very sweet words on my current post; your perception is and sensitivity never surprise me. xoxo


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
