Entry Table Refinish Project.

This project began with my curiosity of milk paint and the distressed finish.  I had a table that didn’t quite match the rest of my furniture, so I decided to use this finish. Milk paint is a different texture than most latex or oil based paints.

After reading up on milk paint, I found Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. I liked the clean look of the color Linen.

The trick I’ve found to this paint, is #1 mixing it well, #2 sanding between coats and #3 using the bonding agent if you want a distressed, not chippy look. It may take a few coats to achieve the desired look.

I distressed this table, then sealed with wax to make sure the finish lasts.

The pictures below are of the finished project.

What painting projects are you starting this year?

Happy New Year!
