The top and legs are going to stay a natural wood, so I sanded those down using my Surf Prep sander.
I’m using a custom mixed paint color, a rich emerald green made using the largest portion of Palmetto, tinted with a bit of Antebellum Blue and darkened with Midnight Sky. We’ll call this color Juniper. 😊

This is a beautiful paint finish on its own, but I wove through the Magnolia Garden transfer in a crescent shape, vining up one side.
I added some Black Wax to the raw wood legs and top, then wiped back the majority, just so it darkened the grain and carvings.
The inside of the drawers got a complimentary mix, slightly heavier on Antebellum Blue, then sealed in Furniture salve
The hardware was cleaned well and hit with a bit of Gold Gilding Wax to brighten them up.
I decided to add a few Wood u bend mouldings moulding to the apron and backplate. Just to make these areas not so plain. They got my body color of Juniper and Midnight Sky, then a bit of Gold Gilding Wax.
The final product is lush, a deep rich color against the simplicity of the white flowers.
