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.

Sea Storm coffee table

Sea Storm... dark ominous and threatening.. deep intense blue grey color.. that is what I think when I hear the words and it is pretty close to the color Country Chic created in their limited summer edition color of the same name.

 I put on 2 coats wet distressing the edges between to reveal a bit of the original dark wood finish
 then put on a coat of tough coat to give a more durable finish but it did not go on as smooth as I hoped perhaps due to warmer shop temperatures so once dry I recoated with the all in one finish sea storm and wet distressed the edges a final time

 this is the end result .. bring on the sea storms
