Hi Ladies! Today I want to show you something I’ve been working on this last week.
My sweet friend Dawn runs a great little shop here in Mount Dora, and just launched her own line of milk paint: The Primitive Life Organic Milk Paint.
I’ve never used milk paint before, so I was really excited to give it a try. I was planning to buy some from Dawn anyway, but she insisted on giving me a box to try and write about. Together, we picked out “Hay” – it’s a really beautiful creamy white.
Did I mention how thrilled I was? I ran right home to see what I had on hand so I could get started.
Unfortunately, everything I had was already in process – I didn’t have anything on hand that was still in the prep stages! My husband is the one that suggested I give our end tables a fresh look. Here’s how they look now:
Before: a set of end tables we’ve had since we bought our house. They’re not fancy, and really not my style, but they were on clearance at a discount furniture store and we needed something (anything) to fill up the new, empty house.
As you can see, they’ve taken a beating over the last several years. Since they were so cheap we haven’t been meticulous about keeping them pristine.
What a difference already! These pictures were taken a few days ago, before the tables were finished. They’ve since been lightly distressed and waxed, but I can’t find my camera to take some updated & staged photos. Hopefully I’ll be able to post those later this week, along with a complete review of the paint – which, not to spoil the surprise, is awesome!
I hope everyone is having a great Monday!
