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…

Fusion Azure Jewel Box

Years ago a good friend gave me this sweet little box that originally had tea in it, I have used it for my bracelets as it is black velvet lined and divided, perfect. But it is not the perfect color. Finally I took some time for myself and pulled out one of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint colors, azure.

I like simple classic styles but wanted to add just a little something to it, like a small raised design. Fusion Mineral Paint has some beautiful stencils and easy to use embossing paste.

I went with just a portion of this stencil to apply on the front side.

Just lay the stencil over spot you want and using pallet knife apply a thin layer of the embossing paste, lift and let dry.. at least 12 hours!! Yep I touched before and instantly remembered patience is the key ;)

I then gave it 2 coats of azure (working on another project behind with azure and 2 more of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint blues) and let dry.

and to make the stencil pop just a bit I hand painted with an artist brush some Fusion Mineral Paint metallic in silver.

absolutely perfect!!
