I decided to start a blog for a few reasons. I thought sharing before & afters and behind the scenes to my process might be fun to see and to give a place to show inventory and locations to see my pieces in person. So, lets get to it!
When I came across this one I had green in mind from the start. I thought the bright pretty green and white knobs would be a nice contrast to the dark wood.
I lightly sanded the top and a few spots around the body, just enough to let the milk paint grab the wood. I wanted this piece chippy so I did not use a bonding additive (I rarely do), I like how crazy milk paint can be… Most of the time.
I have a studio to paint in…but making a mess inside my family room is just easier, right? I grabbed some hydrangea paper I had on hand from another dresser.
This is my daughter Audrey photo bombing my staging photo. Stinker.
This piece was a lot of fun, the color variation in the green is the best part. I love this color and paint so much. Here’s the final shots… available at Poppy & Co in Tacoma. If you haven’t been to this shop it’s beautiful and full of super talented artists, that are over the moon talented. I consign at the Tacoma (765 Broadway) location and Seattle (1307 1st Ave) location. They are both a must see!
