A Punch of Green Inside

Is it chilly enough for you? 
Geeezzz - we are freezing, here in Georgia.
But, I am certainly not complaining. I'll take really, really cold over 100° and humid, any day.

My favorite color is green.  Green is warming, to me. It makes me think of plants and plants make me warm -probably because plants need sunshine. That must be why I consider green to be a 'warm' color, even though it really isn't considered 'warm' on the color wheel.

These images of using green inside a cupboard or piece of furniture have given me an idea or two.

A little bit of green in a room certainly warms up a room and a piece of furniture.

Painting the inside of a piece is sort of like a present to yourself.  A little bit of cheer, each time you open it.


I might just have to leave that door open.
Or maybe give a tour and say "Did you see the inside of this piece?" in a braggy sort of way. (wink)

Now, if I can just find the time to paint a little something green inside!

Have a great day! (and stay warm.)

Pin It!

that emerald green really took hold of me this year too - I guess I am more susceptible to Pantone's color decrees than I realized ! :)

I've actually been in the process (1 month) of painting the interior of our barrister bookcase a nice apple green. I have two of the three boxes painted.

A punch of green would be really nice! I loved all of the images with the green. That green and yellow and the green and white, gorgeous! Have fun when you do get to the painting!

I did this very thing with the built in cupboard/shelves in our bedroom...I guess in 2012.
I used the Ooops! Green that I had and I LOVE IT!
it's sort of an olive drab...but I like a lot.
I say- GO FOR IT! if you need my approval. ;) Pat
