I grew up on a 600 acre horse ranch in Northern CA and the very small house we lived in was a 150 year old farmhouse that had chippy doors and a wood stove. My mom loved the color green and horses so these things remind me of home and my mom. When thinking about this contest I decided to paint an old dresser in Lucketts Green by Miss Mustard Seed.
This green one of my favorite colors and I thought the chest would look good with the rustic chippy look. The top of the dresser was in bad shape with lots of scratches and dings, so I stripped the high gloss finish off and sanded it. The wood was beautiful and I finished it off with dark wax and tung oil. After I painted the dresser I also sealed the paint with AS dark wax/tung oil.
|My mom had an acre garden with mostly vegetables, but also flowers so Peonies were an easy choice to decorate with|
|Horses were my Mom's favorite|
|This chippy doors reminds me of a door we had on our porch growing up|
|I love how the wood top came out!|
