Do you ever feel like you're in the Twilight Zone? I'm totally a routine person. I don't function well without one, so the beginning of summer is always a little hard for me. I stink at transitioning from the school year to the summer routine. And, my sweet little daughter asked me to not paint this summer so we could spend more time together and I agreed (I needed a break anyway). This piece was my last custom until school starts again. It was originally the top to the buffet I just finished up.
My client wanted to use the pieces separately, so she had the same cabinet maker that made the tops put legs on the hutch so it could be used as a book shelf. I really love the idea and thought it turned out so great. It was definitely dark and in need of a pick me up!
I love this color. It's subtle and sophisticated, especially paired with the dark wood top.
*Confession: People always ask me about glazing and I never tell them that I absolutely hate glazing. I'm not sure why, I just do. But, I do like the way it looks when done lightly.
I'm not sure when you'll see me again, but I hope you're still around when I finally make another appearance!! :)
Have a terrific summer!!
