Chippy Green Vintage Table


Awhile back I came across a very old side table that had a cracked mirrored top and gorgeous details and I had to have it.  
Before:
This is not the true before photo ( lost that with the recent  computer issues), but close.  When I found the table is was very dry and the top had a mirror with a chunk missing from it.  I popped out the mirror and replaced it with wood and then I used hemp oil to revive the wood and this is what it looked like.  It didn't sell dark like this, so I decided it needed a little color.  I pulled out Boxwood Green milk paint by Miss Mustard Seed and started mixing it up.  I painted the table with 2 coats and after it had dried, I scraped away the loose milk paint and fell in LOVE!  


Chippy Goodness!

The color is stunning and now the details POP! 
Gorgeous Details! 

Look at those amazing legs!
