Say hello to “Dried Lavender”

As I’ve mentioned a couple of times, there are a lot of new things I’m working on behind the scenes.  One of those things is new colors for the milk paint line!  Well, Lucketts is the perfect time to test out those colors “in the real world” on a piece of furniture, so I’ve been doing a lot of “testing”!  Here is the first new color I’m introducing…

The names of my paint colors are all inspired by things I love or use in my home, so Dried Lavender fit perfectly.  I’ve sold it out of my space at Lucketts for years…

…and it’s in some of my more famous pictures…


When milk paint customers and retailers started asking me for a purple, I knew immediately this is the direction I would go.  I mean, I’m not really a purple person, so a grayish, smoky purple is about as far as I can go!

Here’s the dresser before…

…of course, I left the top wood, as is my custom.

I will be sharing a tutorial on how I achieved the two-tone look on the drawers.

The dresser will be for sale at Lucketts for $285.
