Mint and Brass Table

I'm a sucker for furniture with great brass hardware, so when my mom found this table with great brass pulls and caps on craigslist, I eagerly snatched it up. It sat in my living room for a bit while I debated what color to paint it.

I even asked everyone's opinion on Facebook and got a few votes for emerald. Loving the green and gold combination, I decided to mix my own emerald green ASCP using the combination I used on my Eastlake table. My original mix was Antibes, Florence, and Aubusson, but I didn't have much Florence, but I figured that Antibes and Aubusson would do basically the same thing. Unfortunately it turned out much smokier than I intended, so I decided to go a different direction and make a mint by adding some Pure White and Provence. It was a happy mistake because I absolutely love the way the mint and brass turned out, and I think it works better in my space than emerald green does anyway.

This table will be available at the Sweet Clover Barn Sale this weekend, August 16-18.

  1. Great mint custom color (wish I could reproduce on my coffee table) and perfect pairing with the coral chairs. Coral + pint is one of my fav combos. Should sell quickly :)

    1. Thanks, Robin! I generally just mix until I make a color I like. I'm sure you could make something similar!

  2. love this, sarah! i am always a sucker for anything in the mint family!
