When I started this table I hadn't planned on giving it a distressed look but when returning to the shop after letting the final coat of Miss Mustard Seed's Ironstone White Milk Paint™ dry I discovered it had crackled in places. No biggy I decided, I'll just add some antique wax into the cracks and it'll add character to the piece. When I was giving the table a light sand the paint started chipping in spots. Then I hit the panic button!
Here is what the table looked like when I started. We purchased it for a song at an auction many years ago. In the 90's all the wood in our living room was stained a cherry color.
After giving the entire table a coat of shellac to help the milk paint bond to the glossy finish I painted it with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint™ in Boxwood Green.
But as often happens I changed my mind and decided to paint the drawer fronts in Ironstone White to match the top. Much better!
If you follow my blog you'll notice that I use glass knobs on a lot of my furniture makeovers. There is something so glamorous about glass knobs!
Truth be told, I haven't found a lot of interesting knobs that I like locally. Time to do some hardware shopping online - anyone have any suggestions of where to look?
