Last week I found this great old empire dresser at the Flea Market and I fell in love with it even thought is was chipped and dinged and scratched.
I wish I could have saved the wood, but it was too damaged for my skills. I knew it would look good in a chippy green, so I pulled out Boxwood Green and Ironstone by Miss Mustard Seed and made my own color. I only had a little bit of the Ironstone left in my bag ( not enough to paint a piece), so I added a few scoops of the green. I really wanted to make a color similar to Luckette's Green since I love that MMS color.
I painted the dresser with two coats of milk paint, let it dry, and the chippy magic started to happen. I helped the chipping along by scraping the dresser with my spackle knife.
I sealed the dresser with AS dark wax/Lindseed oil and added beautiful large glass knobs.
