I am in love with Grey...any shade of it.. I agree with Paul Klee who said: "For a painter Grey is the richest colour. The one that makes all the others speak." When I was working on interior design of my Home Grey was the leading colour I choose for my furniture. Than depending on seasons or my mood I add little home decors in different colors- like pillows or flower vases, candle holders -and let the colors speek.
For my Jacobean Buffet (originally dark wood and heavy looking) I mixed Chapin Gray Chalk Style Paint and Driftwood Milk Paint for the body adding little Queenstown Gray GF Milk Paint to darkened in some places. For drawers and doors of my Buffet I used Chapin Gray shadowing the sides with mix of GF clear glaze and Driftwood Milk Paint. The carvings were painted with mix of Bone White and Chapin Grey. Same mix with GF clear glaze was used for legs ..I also deepened the color on some details using GF black glaze. I am in love with General Finishes Grays...they have truly smashing shades!
