Mixing Greys and small chest of drawers

mixing greys with ASCP Chalk Paint

I've been having a lot of fun mixing my own colours rather than using the paint it of the can. I love ASCP Paris Grey but sometimes find it too blue for the look I want. French Linen is also lovely but sometimes too green based for you you may want. The best thing then is to start mixing paint! I created this lovey neutral tone grey by using ASCP Paris Grey, French linen, Old White and a little Duck Egg. Perfect for these small handy drawers.

Don't the drawers look lovely with the orchids from my garden. It's a bumper crop this year. They do say treat orchid meanly. It's certainly working :)

I have lots of lovey painting pieces to share this week and some more photos from around home.  We've had a busy few weeks with sick kids, Phil splitting his head open and needing lots of stitches and our gorgeous girl turning 13 earlier this week. People keep telling me horror stories of their lovely girls turning feral at 13. I can't imagine it happening with her but touch wood :)

Pop back tomorrow for a new post. 
Hope you are still reading.

  3. Oh Fiona! I love her colors, but always end up adding a little of this and a little of that. I stumbled upon a wonderful combo of Coco base, with a wash of lightened Paris Gray. All of her colors work so nicely together! And the great thing is your client will truly have a one of a kind piece because it would be very hard to duplicate the color combo! :) xoxo Robin
