Note to self:
Never Milk Paint in the house.
Just a friendly piece of advise from your friend Paige.
Last Friday I was headed toward Brevard, North Carolina at 6:15 in the morning . On my day off. Why, in the name of God would I do this? Well, it was the annual Methodist Church’s rummage sale! I went last year and hit the Mother load. And this year did not disappoint !
I came home with my Jeep stacked to the headliner, but this was my absolute favorite.
Old, and handmade .
I felt like I should keep with the era of this table and use an old fashioned paint. So I began to search through the Painted Furniture Database.
Also know as Pinterest.
This was my inspiration piece
I mixed up a custom milk paint color using Miss Mustardseed paints in Eulalies Sky, Luckett’s Green and Artissimo.
And I got a lovely turquoise ! I painted the legs and apron of the table in two coats of this custom mixed color and left the kitchen for about thirty minuets, I swear.
Boy, did this one chip.
All over my kitchen floor.
I think it’s perfect.
It was a big mess to clean up though.
Here’s the finished product.
I did sand the top down and gave it only a good coat of Annie Sloan dark wax.
The table had a hole where a drawer used to be so I used it to my advantage.
I sealed the finish with hemp oil and when it dried the chipping stopped.
Today I moved a Jeep load into my shop snd this was among the things I took. I spent the afternoon flipping my shop for Christmas.
Here’s a peek!
Have a great weekend,
