I had been hunting for a piece of furniture for a client of mine for months.
I had searched high and low for the perfect piece for Dana’s upstairs hallway.
Dana knew the style and size she needed and I offered her lots of choices over those few months.
On another furniture pick up, I saw it.
THIS was THE PIECE!
I knew it was JUST what she was looking for!
I was pretty excited and sent her a text right away with a picture.
She LOVED it!
I was happy I was finally able to find her what she wanted.
She asked me to paint it in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Schloss which is fantastic color – I would describe it as a greige.
It is a favorite of mine 🙂
I added the Bonding Agent when mixing the paint as I wanted to be able to control the amount of distressing – I knew she didn’t want the piece to be super chippy.
I gave it a light sanding before I painted it and I used three coats of paint. I could have easily done the piece in two coats, BUT I wanted to be sure every bit was evenly covered.
I distressed it a little and shined up those cool pulls which my client claimed to look just like an owl’s face.
She was right on…and I loved the piece even more then!
My business name is The Blessed Nest so of course, I love owls!!
What a H..O..O..T!
I sealed up the piece in Miss Mustard Seed’s Hemp Oil and refinished the gorgeous top in a Dark Walnut stain.
Isn’t that wood grain amazing?
It surely was the focal point!
How adorable is this sweet antique washstand now?
I almost hated to see it go….
my husband really had an affection for it.
It was a fun piece to do and I am glad to have helped out such a sweet gal.
I truly have the best job!
