French Provincial Dresser Set

My newest clients, Samantha and her hubby, are moving into their new house and are in need of a new look and style for their new digs. Samantha wants to mix old with new and bring in pops of color.One piece she recently had done is a cute little green side table.
For her bedroom she wants to keep the furniture clean, crisp and classic so she decided to go with white.

I think these pieces look so classic and beautiful.
I used Swiss Coffee and used my homemade chalk paint recipe, very lightly distressed, added new glass knobs and sealed with wax.

What do you think of classic white pieces?
Love them em' or hate em'?

Custom Green Side Table

A few weeks ago on my Facebook page I asked for help picking a color for an end table that I wanted to paint. I was given some great ideas but someone snagged it before I could pick a color.
My client Samantha and her hubby bought a new house and she is wanting a new look for her new space. She wants to add pops of color so I sent her a few ideas and we picked a great shade of green.


The inspiration photo is from Desiree form The 36th Avenue
I think it came out great and Desiree was sweet enough to tell her readers a color that was close to the custom color she mixed.
I used Cliveden Pasture which can be found at Lowe's.
I used a black glaze to darken the green and sealed with wax.
Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint was used on the original pulls.
My client Sam wants to mix old with new and I think this piece does it. I also love that she isn't afraid of color!
What do you think, could you rock a green table in your space?
