I bought a little cupboard yesterday.I have been looking for one for ages. This one I am in the throws of painting . I have to fix the base as there has been a bit of woodworm. I don't know if I shall use more colours either and the shelves are missing from inside. I like wall mounted cupboards but I'm not sure I will find a wall I can attach it too.The colour is Rouge Corail No 4 by Luxens in Satin. It's much more the colour of lipstick my gran's generation wore than this red. I like chalkier paint normally but I can't really afford it. I just discovered I can use plaster of Paris and make my own paints. I used to buy cheap white paint and pure pigment but the idea of chalk sounds good too. Annie Soames style from the rustic Mediterranean.
