Verdigris Loveliness

Such a pretty chalkboard...
a nice juxtaposition of utilitarian and frivolous

I love the look of dramatic mirror over the vanity or dresser
and I wanted to capture that look
but with a desk

The carvings are elegant
and PURE from ASCP
perfectly accents them, don't you think?

I played mix-master and this color
turned out just as I envisioned

I envision this desk with a simple stool or Parson's chair
slip-covered in layers of ruffled white linen

I think these colors, together, are so relaxing and fresh!


  1. Gorgeous! I totally get the vision and I think you did it amazingly well! Go girl :)

  2. BeeeeUtiful!! Great job!

  3. I have to say that I love your elegant and inspirational interpretations in painting furniture. I envy your access to some lovely reproductions that are not easily available at reasonable prices here in France! Thank you for your generosity in sharing your talent.

  4. Thank you sincerely, for all the lovely kudos and comments.

    We really take our time selecting the perfect items, and then spend even more time hand painting's very satisfying and rewarding to have others notice! It would be more economical to purchase any old thing and hit it with a spray gun...but it just wouldn't be the same!

    So again, a heartfelt thank you. We value each and every comment. In fact, @the occasional pat, I shared your post over dinner and you made our night. (smiles)

  5. Daaaang I just love this whole post!!! Apparently it's been a while since I've stopped by your blog...I won't let that happen again!
