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.

Milk Painted Farmhouse Solid Oak Stools




I purchased these tall solid oak stools thinking they would be perfect in a white with dark wax.


So for coat number one I mixed up Homestead House Milk Paint in limestone and brushed it on.

Homestead House Milk Paint in Laurentien was the color of choice.


It looked perfect, vintage farmhouse stool color for sure.


And of course in typical milk paint style, one stool is more green and one more blue :)


To seal the milk paint I went with Miss Mustard Seed hemp oil , it goes on so easy with a brush. Let soak in and wipe off. I then added Fusion Mineral Paint ageing and espresso waxes on the top and all the crevices to keep the farmhouse aged look.



they work great as a plant stand too ;)
