You are reading it right!!!
It’s milk paint time, kiddos!!!!
This was a very inexpensive table. Made cheaply….and looked cheapy………..purchased cheaply.
I decided to “step out of my element” with painting this one…..(is that how you say that?)
You know…. “get out of my comfort zone”….
“Do something different”…….
Know what I decided to do?
Paint something yellow.
I have never owned a piece of yellow furniture nor painted a yellow piece of anything.
But I was picturing a warm, golden tone for this table.
Perfect for bringing in fall.
Great way to test our milk paint, isn’t it?
Know what this reminded me of.
You needed to know.
Two light coats of milk paint and I got this.
I needed warmer.
So, I applied minwax stain.
The table sucked it up like crazy.
Then, I calmed down.
I applied Minwax paste, which didn’t make a huge difference like it normally would with a latex paint…..
I freaked again.
The, I calmed down.
Want to see why?
Warm, isn’t it?
Golden isn’t it?
Perfect, if you ask me……..
I only used about a 1/16th of a cup of paint…..max.
I should be able to do about 747 more tables.
I think I may like this paint.
Perfect tone for fall, don’t you think?
Let me know your thoughts.
I can’t wait to hear them!
I will give you a breakdown this week of milk vs chalk…(hint…milk won).
