We are custom mixing colors again!
Ok friends, here is a real treat for you today! And we hope you love it as much as we do. It is a new color of green we tried! While we didn’t come up with the concoction of mixed colors, we loved it so much we just had to try it! Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint is one of the easiest paints to mix in our opinion. It also helps that each and every one of her 25 colors are absolutely gorgeous – so mixing them together has got to create more gorgeous colors! Am I right?!
Here is the dresser BEFORE it’s beautiful makeover.
When I first saw this color, I was immediately stunned. (It is a scroll-stopper for sure). I knew that I just HAD to try it. We tried our hand at green on THIS table and chair set last spring. It was a beautiful light green we were really happy with once it was finished. It was a great first piece and sold right away.
Now we are moving right along with this newly popular color but we went dark this time!
I had this dresser in my basement for almost a year. It was just waiting for me to strip down the terribly thick, old and battered varnish that was on the top. And I’ll tell you, it wasn’t easy. I think it’s safe to say that stripping furniture is probably my least favorite part of restyling pieces. It’s just plain NOT fun.
Well anyway, once I could finally get to painting this piece I knew this green was absolutely perfect to refresh this antique empire style dresser! I had already set aside the bottom two drawers of this dresser – knowing I wanted to create open shelving and transform this piece into a sideboard/small buffet. I happen to love the look of open shelving.
Then while Vicki was making a custom cedar table top for a client, I got the idea to use cedar as the shelves and fell in love with the buffet even more! Just look at those beautiful cedar shelves! They literally work perfectly with this shade of green.
We couldn’t be happier with how this piece turned out and I am so ecstatic this will be going to a good friend of mine! I can visit it!
