Painting the Furniture


The massive oak cabinet known as The Green Thing, that dwells in the sitting room? White now.

Looking forward to seeing the whole piece~and hey...what kind of super-vitamin do you take?? :) I've been trying to paint my milk house for three weeks!

I've thought about painting the massive 'distressed' pine armoire in my living room- any suggestions? Did you try to 'fill in' or sand away imperfections? Did you consider whitewashing, or did you use full strength latex paint?

I love the soothing colors, and your pumkin makes me want to get one. It is still 100+ here, not a hint of fall. I miss living on the otherside of the states.

I bet that looks lovely with the grey. All this talk of painting is getting me looking at the kitchen walls and cupboards with a speculative eye.

Oooh, it must feel like a whole new house! I love home makeovers. I'm just about to shift all the furniture around in the front room (to my husband's dismay)...

How peaceful looking your home seems, with the pale colors everywhere. I wonder if that works especially well in a large space like you have.

I wonder if everyone will continue to refer to it as the green thing? :) Can't wait to see the whole thing.

I get a very tranquil feeling from the photo. Ever thought of stripping the paint off back to natural wood.

Getting a good laugh over here. Growing up, we had a piece of furniture known as the Green Thing. We were SURE that we were the only family that would dub something with such a name! Ours was a small(ish) cupboard that held Highlights Magazines, wrapping paper, church song books, what-not.

We had a "green thing" and a "red thing" growing up. :-) Both big old hutches in our 1700's saltbox home.
