Solid Oak Nesting Tables Makeover

I am always excited to fulfill a customers vision when they custom call furniture I have sourced in my stock to paint inventory. A great customer has had me keep an eye out for nesting tables for a few years now. Finally I found a set which she loved and I was able to refinish them in her choice of colors.  Everyone has their own color pallet that makes them happy, this was hers. A soft smoky blue green, charcoal and a soft pink. All rich in pigment that pair nicely with the dark stained wood tops.  

wooden canister set reloved in Fusion's putty

My Mom bought me this wooden canister set as a project, first step scrub up and let dry

Oh yes, there was one repair to be made

My first attempt at painting was with Homestead House Paint Co. in Renfrew blue but the canisters and milk paint had a mind of their own on the lids and only one side.. excessive chipping

and below is the Renfrew blue with Homestead House Paint Co. loyalist milk paint dry brushed on for a cool old denim look but with tops and one side on each really chippy it was not the look I wanted so I washed them all clean. This is the great part of milk paint until sealed.

Fusion Mineral Paint putty was the next color choice and one coat covered perfectly on all sides, bottom and lid and top edges. 

I want a vintage look so sanded all sides and edges then added  Homestead House black furniture wax for dimension and aging.
