 The Fourth Piece In The Custom Color Bedroom Suite Featuring OFMP, A Spool Turned Nightstand

It’s reveal time for the fourth piece in the OFMP “a true milk paint” custom color bedroom suite, a spool turned nightstand. I simply adore this mixed blend in the Sea Green Collection.

The Before

Here is the spool turned nightstand before, in all its red stained glory. The top and body had several scratches which needed sanding.

Color Mixing

If you follow me on Instagram (and you should) you may remember the short color mixing video demonstrating how easy it is to create your own color, just add powders until you get the shade you want.

Final Color Blend

Here’s a shot of the final color blend, with an example of the same color with a saltwash and waxed finish on the frame created to compliment the piece. The top and drawer received the same grey paint color and Acriglaze finish as the other pieces in the suite.

The Color Recipe

For the body I came up with this custom blend of OFMP I’m calling

Soda Bottle:

  • 4 parts Tavern Green
  • 8 parts Federal Blue
  • 1 part Sea Green
  • 5 parts Snow White



Sanding the chips
 Final Sanding

Three coats later and chipping complete, time for a light sand and distress. Give it final go over with 220 grit for a nice smooth finish.

Waxed Detail

I love Daddy Vans Antique Wax, its gets in the chips and brings out their detail without muddying up your color for a perfect antiqued finish. And It smells divine, is natural, and doesn’t require building up Popeye arm muscles to get that sheen.
