Potting Table in Luckett's Green
Loved Freshening up this Antique table that I found along the curb. Very Rustic! Very Dirty!
I stained the entire table with Curio milk paint mixed as a stain and let that soak in and set for a few days. I finally found some time to finish this up this weekend. I had to add a few nail to tack down the large boards that make the top of the piece. I loved the character the top had with a few paint splatters and worn spots. Makes it just Perfect to use as a work table or to display plants!
I just finished the top with a few coats of hemp oil.
I wanted a good vintage garden green for the base. I also wanted a chippy worn look to. So the perfect choice was Luckett's Green Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint. I applied a very think streaky coat of hemp oil to sections of the table prior to painting it with the milk paint. This allowed the paint to come off in a few places to allow the brown to show through. I only applied one thick coat of luckett's green to this piece to acheive the look that I was going for. After sanding and distressing, I then finished the entire piece with hemp oil.
