Tonight, I have this lovely, little green thing to share with you!
I bought this piece at a yard sale this past summer. During my stripping attempt, I realized the top was plastic laminate - lame!
But, during my night time blog reading, I learned a great trick from Storywood Designs about painting beautiful tops on furniture. Please check out her blog to learn!
I differed a little bit from what she shares. I used a 50 cent brown oops paint from Lowe's. The color reminds me of the Hershey's Cocoa powder you can buy at the stores. Like Storywood Designs, I stained with Minwax Dark Walnut. I also did this to the inside of the drawers as they were just kind of yuck looking - crayon stains, water stains, etc.
This was also my first attempt with milk paint and I love it! Color is Miss Mustard Seed Luckett's Green. I used the bonding agent as I was not going for a chippy effect. I did prime beforehand with my brown tinted primer, but you can't really tell a difference anyway. I coated the piece with Minwax Dark Wax and sealed it with water based polycrylic. Like Storywood Designs, I'm kind of in love too!
What piece have you just finished up?
