Before and After–Green Sideboard

Super Duper short post today but I didn’t want to leave this lady out. I took the last few days off with my kiddos and came out feeling so inspired. I painted two pieces this afternoon that I am so excited to finish and stage them. I needed a day like today to remind me that I am exactly where I should be, doing exactly what I love, days like that are so needed. More on those goodies later. I worked on this piece last week for the new Modern Cottage Company store. When I got her she was in pretty good shape but needed a little fun in her life. Ive been wanting to use this color again so badly! I used one of my all time favorite greens, Tavern Green by The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company and pretty bone knobs.

  3. Oh, this is such a lovely transformation! May I ask, where did you get the pretty bone knobs? Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Just wondering how many coats you used, and did you put a clear coat on this piece ,I saw your post from another blog ,your work is amazing. I went out and found some tavern green paint and am painting a vintage hutch and I am loving it ,also did you use any glaze or wax.Thanks so much for your time.

    • Hi Michelle! I think I did 3 coats on this piece. Sometimes I can get away with 2 depending on how thick I mix the paint, how dark the wood is, and what coverage I’m after. I like to seal milk paint with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat. This piece I used Country Chic’s tough coat and loved it. Although wax on MP can be great for a more aged rustic look. Sometimes I mix it up and use the dark wax in addition to the top coat. Tavern Green is a fantastic color and looks great sealed with any option. Thanks for asking! Have fun! šŸ™‚
