Hosta Flower. Also Known As White.
Over the past week we’ve received a shipment of furniture at our house. All of the furniture I showed you here, and then some. I didn’t waste any time getting started on making the entry way chests over, because I’m dying to bring some order back to that room. Now that the temperatures are dropping, we actually need a place to hang jackets and scarves! I decided that I wanted to paint the small chest in a light “greige” colour. I thought that Hosta Flower by Pittsburg Paints was the perfect shade. Online it looks a little bit more taupe and on the swatch it looks a little bit more grey. Unfortunately, on the furniture it just looks white to me. Well, it’s not bright white, it’s more of a mushroom colour. In case you don’t remember what the small chest looks like, here she is in her original home. And here she in in her new home, right before I attacked her with my foam roller.After two coats of Hosta Flower, she looks like this.It looks pretty darn white doesn’t it? I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing at this point. I still have at least two coats to go and I have to remove the legs to paint them and add new hardware. I think I will ride it out and see how it looks when all is said and done. My plan is to keep the brass feet and buy brass drawer pulls to match. Brass? Who knew!? I have plans for the long chest that include dark paint so this hit of lightness and brightness might be the perfect balance. I guess we will have to wait and see.
