~ Still Painting . A Little Turquoise Love

There were a few questions sent to me asking exactly what the drawer pulls were going to be used for, and what the heck I've been painting for so long. It is one of those projects that is so simply but is taking a lot of time and layers.

I'm in love with small amounts of turquoise. It might be a shorter love affair if I did a lot with it, but right now we are still in love. And another question was what color am I painting this piece since the pulls have turquoise in them. Here is a little sneak peek. {Yes, after years of loving doing the big reveal, I kind of like short posts with sneak peeks after all. :) } White, slightly aged.

There are three drawers just below the middle door opening where the pulls will go.

For a few years I've been thinking about painting something like this, white with the back in a beautiful turquoise. And I'm loving it.

See Y'all Soon!

*Edit: It is no longer turquoise inside.
Always changing my mind. :)


  1. I can not wait to see the reveal! I am so going to do this whenever we eventually move and I get my bookcases set up. Not sure on actual colors yet, but I'm definitely do this.

  2. It's such a fresh and pretty color combination!

  3. OK, now that's just plain mean. Teasing us like that.
    Looks beautiful, Donna!
    Can't wait to see the whole thing.

  4. Ooh, So So pretty. I LOVE the turquoise back.

  5. Gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing the whole thing. Those drawer pulls were beautiful enough. This is going to be a work of art!!

  6. Oh I love the white and turquoise. I can't wait to see the finished project. I looks fabulous from the sneak peek. Hugs, Marty

  7. It looks beautiful. Can't wait to see the reveal.
    If the pulls are brass, you can spray them with ammonia, and then apply a mixture of vinegar and salt to make them patina, to that natural gorgeous turquoise color.

  8. Curiosity kills me! haha It's looking georgeous! I can't wait for the big reveal!


  9. I love that turquoise paint color!!!!

  10. Thank you ladies for cheering me on!
    Everything is slower with the puppy dog always helping. :)

    I am excited to be almost ready to fill this up!

  11. Hey Donna;;; Wow I love that color in the back of the hutch.. just beautiful.... ooooooo and when you have your lovelies inside it will look amazing...


  12. That will lokk stunning when it is done. Beautiful color!

  13. Very beautiful. I just found your blog and love your style. I could never do something like this but I can appreciate the photos of your work. Awesome job.


  14. I'm enclosing my back deck, just finished fixing the roof with new shingles last night. I've started a blog with lots of inspiration and ideas I've found all over the web so that I can plan out what my space will look like. I'm pretty sure I want a light turquoise wall in the back ground with lots of white distressed furniture. I love the color you have used in this piece and am wondering if you would tell me the exact color and paint company you used. Was it a special mix or ready made? Thanks so much for sharing your work with us.
