I found this little handmade table in a junk shop in Hendersonville, N. C. a few weeks ago. I was just sitting there are I made my way around the maze that was that junk shop. I could not believe that place. I was a Crazy Junk Girl’s absolute dream. I went there to claim a dining table that I made a deal for on Facebook Marketplace…..and got the bonus plan to say the least.
I just love days like that.
It was so dark and hella cold in that shop that I didn’t even see the detail under the lone drawer until I unloaded it in to my garage. Now take a look :))))
Behold General Finishes Nantucket Green chalk paint.
This lovely vintage green color makes me smile every time I crack the lid. It is just a perfect yellowy green.
I got super lucky with this top.
It was in great condition. I wiped on a really light coat of MMS hemp oil just to hydrate it a bit.
I painted the table in two good coats of GF Nantucket Green and let it dry for maybe three hours tops. Next I sanded everything except the top with a brand new fine grit sanding sponge using medium pressure to achieve this look. I am pointing out the face that the sanding sponge was brand new because Its kinda like the sharpest knife in the kitchen drawer. I keep several old-er sanding sponges in a box in with all of my paint crap, each one is a varying degree in fine. That way I can be more deliberate about the amount of paint that I remove. I find that this assortment cuts way down on paint touchups where my hand has gotten too heavy.
The domino effect is it also cuts down on the numbers of wobblers I pitch.
This old lithograph was also liberated from that junk shop. I dug it out from under a bunch of other old pictures. I loved all of these shades of green. I left there with my Jeep loaded to the gills!
I will share more of my finds soon !
