So here it is now....
We painted right over the mint with Annie Sloan Chalk paint. It took a couple of coats.
We used Louis Blue. It was not quite the color she was going for,
so we applied a couple of coats of Liming Briwax over it.
The lime wax whitened the color and gave it a shimmer. Also, the white in the wax gets caught in the grooves, carvings, and scratches. I used an old ikea kitchen towel to apply the wax.
I also buffed the wax.
The handles were painted with Rust-oleum hammered gold. We added wheels to this table a while back, so we painted those hammered gold as well, and now they look like brass.
It's similar... She did not want any sanding or anything as unrefined as the mint. Beautiful color...
