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.

Fusion Mineral Paint's English Rose Jewelry Boxes

This jewelry box is all sparkly, pretty and girly!! The perfect look for a little girl inheriting her late Grandma's jewelry box.




Now onto the 2nd jewelry box, I used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to give an aged mercury glass feel to the etched glass door pane.


The edges were distressed and Homestead House's espresso wax added for a further aged look with dimension


And here they are side by side to show same but different
