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.
The top is the only wood veneer piece, the rest is solid maple I believe. Because it is veneer you must be very careful when refinishing it as it is easy to sand thru the thin wood layer.
Using my orbital sander and 120 grit sandpaper, I carefully sanded the top smooth the applied Homestead House's stain and finishing oil all in one  in cappuccino color. Throughout…

3 Frames in Country Chic Bliss


Seeing I am on a frame roll,, I had scrubbed up a couple more as well as a mirror I recently purchased. I ended up doing them all in Country Chic paint color pallet "bliss". 
Check out a gorgeous dresser I did in bliss too.

Lets start with the mirror


When I paint mirrors I like to slide smooth glossy card stock under the frame edge to protect the glass and make painting so much easier.


Country Chic paint color  "bliss" was brushed on using my favorite Cling On brush F40. With a wet cloth I wiped back the raised detailing areas to reveal the gold for a beautiful color combination.




Next are these 2 gold frames



They both had 2 coats of bliss painted on as well.
I was working on the horse statue which was done in a similar color but spray paint.



The ornate frame I did the same wet distressing to reveal those stunning gold details then Country Chic metallic in belt buckle was dry brushed over the paint for even more iridescent glimmer.



On the ridged frame the same metallic was brushed over the bliss to bring out the details!




These are absolutely beautiful in person
