From Blue to Creamy White

I really loved this dresser in blue and bluish gray, and was delighted to hear customers say how cute it was … how adorable … but was dismayed when the overwhelming response was that it was perfect for a boy’s room. No other room was mentioned so after nearly a year of not selling, I opted to paint the blue color in cream.

The new scheme is a cream color along with the blue/gray.

Secretaries Large and Small

I have the pleasure of working on two secretaries simultaneously ~ one a custom makeover for a client and the other will be available for purchase.

My client is deciding between gray or teal for the inside of the large off-white secretary.

I’m going to paint the inside of the smaller secretary in off-white, although everything else will be in Annie Sloan’s Greek Blue chalk paint.

In the midst of working on these two secretaries, I have four other fun projects I’m juggling.

These are my second and third secretaries to paint.  Earlier this year, I painted one featured below that is similar in size to the one painted off-white.

I do love secretaries as they have such great lines and utility.
