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's newest release ~ English Rose


I love new color reveals and Michael Penney's latest addition to his line of FMP is a beauty. Soft pale pink called English Rose.


I recently purchased a solid wood MCM dresser, well made with dove tail joints but it had the hi gloss finish. To be sure my paint had the best adherence I started with a good coat of Fusion Mineral Paint's ultra grip using their micro roller. Super easy application now to leave to dry minimum 12 hours.



The hi gloss finish was dark and wanting to save paint I once again coated the entire dresser and drawers with Fusion Mineral Paint concealer using the micro roller. This is a reclaimed product they make that gives a brighter base under your lighter paint colors.


Now the fun part, adding color; I used the micro roller yet again and put on 3 coats of English rose.


 In the front edges I used the Staalmeester sash brush. It worked very well for these tight hard to get at areas.


The legs did not have the concealer, you can see one coat on the right and two on the left, I ended up putting 4 coats on the legs


I always am excited to see the drawers back in and hardware on but it was left to dry over night then hauled in, the legs put back on and here it is








This solid walnut Canadian made MCM dresser has been revived in a soft pale pink which enhances the original gold hardware, drawer details and leg caps. The 4 solid wood dovetailed drawers provide ample storage and slide smoothly. The sweet curvy legs and sweeping curved front design and curved top drawer front add elegance.  It measures 36"L X 18"D X 40 1/2"H. This gorgeous hand painted dresser is the perfect statement piece in your Princess's room. Message me if your looking
