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.

INSPIRATION
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?

    1. I actually used kona stain as a glaze. There is this whole crazy process I do....but you can use a clear glaze and add a little black paint to it. That it would waayyy easier! Thanks for stopping by.

  19. Beautiful! What is the name/brand of the paint you used?

  20. I saw this piece on Better After, and I had to come over and tell you how much I love it. Green is my favorite color, in almost any shade, but this color is really fantastic. Thanks for telling us what you used, I am definitely buying some of that! Not that my efforts will be at all in the same league, you did such a great job with the glaze. Beautiful!
