Luckett's Green Cupboard

The weather is changing and I can feel the time to start painting.

I can't drag large pieces of furniture in the house because I can't stand walking around a mess after a day of regular work but smaller pieces fit just fine.

Using Harry Potter and Suits as inspiration while painting, I took a break from sewing like a mad woman and hit the brushes.

This lovely little cupboard has been painted with 3 coats of #MissMustardSeedMilkPaint in a combination of Luckett's Green, Grainsack and Boxwood

measurement ratio for paint:

i use a paint only 1/4 cup measuring scoop (so i am just adding up the amount of scoops for the amount of paint i needed for this project)

3/8 cup of luckett's green

1/8 cup boxwood

1/8 to a bit less cup grainsack (i added the grainsack last until i got the colour i wanted)


combination of miss mustard seed antique wax into grooves, furniture wax entire piece and white wax on and off with antiquing wax

i replaced the old pulls with glass pulls from lowes home improvement. i am planning on ordering some new hardware from dlawless but was pleasantly suprised that lowes carried these pulls



for a little surprise, the shelf inside got a coat of #GeneralFinishes emerald 

a bit of milk paint colour variation on the top from the bottom of the jar


Feels good to be getting back in the saddle again

This piece has been put up on kijiji and in the etsy shop if you are local and interested in the details, size etc.

Have a great Monday,
