You know, if you paint furniture any time at all people get the word that you do it. At the very least, people that know you. And in just a little while stuff will begin to show up on your front porch and at your day job and recently, at a dinner party Big Daddy attended.
I just love that little scalloped edge of the shelf and those legs! Good, solid and made of oak.
My kind of piece.
I had a little bit of Junque Boutique Mason Jar Blue milk paint left over from the bench we built for the last market we did so I mixed up the last bit of it and went crazy.
Now, unlike the bench project this table started to chip and crackle right away. To me Mason Jar is the perfect aqua color. Not too blue, not too green.
Why in the world did I wait so long to try Milk Paint?
I used to think I wanted complete control of how much paint comes off of a piece of furniture that I had painted. But there is just something so lovely about this chipping, crackling and peeling. I am truly in love with it.
Have a great week!
