Painting Ms Lucy

Ms Lucy is my grandmother's corner cabinet!  She is a cabinet from the 50's.  My nana antiqued the cabinet a green with gold.  She gave this to my mom and my mom had them stripped to the color below.

I inherted Ms. Lucy from my mom and moved to Asheville.  I wanted to paint it Olde White!  And I did.  It took the weekend, and I had great memories of my mom and Nana.

Mom my gave me the silver candlabras for Christmas one year and I inherited these beautiful Bavaria White dishes that she got in the 50's!
I painted the inside Paris Grey, which picks up the silver on the plates.
Ms. Lucy looking pretty in the corner, with my blue and white curtains
She looks pretty, oh course no one puts baby in the corner, unless she is a corner cabinet!
I love her, my mom and nana would be proud there painting and stripping techniques live on!

  4. I see that my sister visited you earlier. Ms Lucy is beautiful painted white, and sitting in the corner, I've always wanted a corner cabinet. Hope you enjoy Asheville, I haven't been there in years, but enjoyed visiting when I was younger. Did you know that it was voted happiest city in the US a few years ago?

  5. I love Ms. Lucy's makeover-she looks gorgeous! :)
