It's always a good feeling to move a project from the shop to the house. This is no museum piece, but will serve our family well for years to come. That's about all I can ask of my furniture. This six board chest was a great build, I cant wait to make another. Scroll through for some progress pics and some gratituitous hand tool shots.

Having started this on @riseupandcarve this morning, I've been eager to get milk paint on it and then finished. The green could be ash-ier and the veins could be yellower, but on balance I'm satisfied with this.
Swipe to see the leaflet progression (right to left). There is such value in repetition. Not necessarily to exactly copy a shape, but to work out how it works.
For me, the first try took the longest. I had to spend time imagining and visualising the transitions... how the leaflet would connect to the bowl. And this changed during the carve.
The second try was about consolidation. It was faster - I knew how the spoon would look, and the bowl shape improved.
The third try brought improvements. I cleaned up the neck transition and had space to make the bowl a better shape. I also had worked out a way to add colour and definition to the leaflet.
What's next Probably trying to repeat number 3.
Simple, beautiful, carved spoon.
Love how elegant this spoon is that @turnaleg made. After cutting out the designs on the handle, she then added milk paint, only to wash it off later. This created that every so subtle color change.
One of the things that we love is seeing how creative people are with Real Milk Paint®. Just the different techniques they use to create specific looks. You would think after almost 25 years of making milk paint we would have seen it all...but, there is always something new around each corner.

Good morning friends! Cheers to the weekend! I’m sharing this gorgeous vanity by Krista @deerrunvintage. She used Shackteau Interiors Milk Paint in Sand. Sand is our light creamy white and pairs well with all wood tones! 😍😍😍
