Chateau Grey cabinet

I love me a grayish green. There is nothing like the color of dried mud inside the home, is there. It's soothing and tranquil, goes with anything, and there are about a billion variations to choose from. You can go more gray with a hint of green, or something similar to Annie Sloan's 'Chateau Grey', which is a lovely green with a touch of grey. This was the perfect choice for a beautiful versatile cabinet that I got to finish OUTSIDE recently.

This is my first piece done in Chateau Grey and I have fallen in love with this natural, mossy color. So much so, in fact, that I almost reconsidered all the Duck Egg aquas I've got going on, just to fit it in.


It took about 4 hours to strip this top and sand it down, (!!!), but it was sooo worth it. That wood grain is no small detail and enhances the rich character of this piece.

Isn't it lovely? There's just something about a raw, natural color, lightly distressed, against a dark wood lacquered in high gloss. I love that contrast; so timeless.

This piece, and other beauties like it, will be available at my May 4 Chelsea's Garage sale!
