Lucketts Green goes French!

 There is a very awesome lady I have met in my travels of furniture! We have helped her out, and she has helped me out! The neighborly thing to do! Here in my very small town stuff like being rude gets around fast.

She needed help moving some furniture from a house in another town, so in return of my manly man helping her I was given this French Provincial Desk. It had some issues with the legs, which may husband fixed with our almighty Kreg pocket kit :)

It has been sitting in my house for a few weeks now, I didn't know what I should do with it, or the color I would go with. I had a few boxes of Miss Mustard Seeds paint that I didn't want to open after a bad experience the first time.

Alas, I decided to give her paint another try, and here is my version of Lucketts green! This is what Lucketts would look like if it went to France I feel :)

I just love the color on this desk, and the perfect color of the naturally oxidized handles were a plus for me! I hope you enjoyed the desk as much as I do! Now the struggle on whether or not I am going to keep it!
