Boxwood Beauty

Just look at this gorgeous gal…
I was over the moon excited when I saw this piece posted on a Facebook sale site.
She was just so pretty.
I wanted to reinvent her a bit though..and give her new life.
She is such a sophisticated piece…I thought she needed to be painted a rich, deep color.

Boxwood Beauty - BEFORE - Embracing Change

I chose to paint her up in one of my favorite colors from Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line…a rich color called Boxwood.
I adore this color.
I made sure to give this piece a sanding first before I painted her because she had a little sheen to her.
I also added Miss Mustard Seed’s Bonding Agent so that the paint would not have any trouble adhering to the wood.
I painted her up and then distressed her when I was done.
I sealed this gorgeous chest up in Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil.
It makes a pretty piece come to life…it is truly the MAGIC!
She is a stunner now!!!
