Farmhouse Hutch ~ Champlain milk paint and cappuccino

Scored from an estate sale this Canadian made Kilgour Furniture buffet/ hutch is the perfect size for a coffee bar or as it was custom called for; an actual bar in the customers new home. She wanted it to be done in the same colors as this sweet little accent table.

The first step was to remove the mac tac liner in the long drawer and inside the buffet

It peeled back easy enough but then required a whole lot of Goo Gone to remove the residual stick glue. It did however protect the wood and once cleaned, perfect new looking surfaces.
All surfaces were scrubbed well to remove any dirt and dust accumulated over the years.

Cece Caldwell beech nut gray & duck blue end tables

It has been awhile since I used Cece Caldwell's paint but knew it would be perfect for this solid pine end table set I had just sanded down.

one top sanded, one to go

I chose duck blue for the base and their new stain & finish in beech nut gray for the top.

the base had 2 coats applied then time for the stained top

one coat was all it took as shown above on the right

I did want to give it a bit more of a white washed look so brushed Cece Caldwell's paint in Philadelphia parchment over the dry stain (again above on the right) and to seal it all up I applied white wax again giving the tables a real beachy white washed look.

As a Cece Caldwell paint rep, they provided me with this paint in exchange for creating this showcase piece; but opinions, creations and ideas are all my own! There is no monetary compensation for me with any of the affiliated links.
