Chippy Goodness


This week I finally venture out to Vintage Bliss Boutique to get some
Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.

It was well worth the drive through the crazy rain we have had here this week.

There is no better way to spend a rainy day 
{that your hubby is working}
than painting furniture.
And since milk paint is almost odorless
it is safe to paint indoors with it.
{Unlike stripping furniture in your unventilated basement}
But that's a story for another day...

 This story starts with a sad little end talk.

 {It just wanted to be beautiful...}

Milk paint is so easy to use 
and creates such a unique finish.
I love that you can just mix up the needed amount of paint for a project.
This little table used about a half a cup of paint powder mixed with half a cup of water.
Apply two coats and wait for the magic to happen.
 Check out those crackles just waiting to chip.
I used a paint scrapped and a 150 grit sand block.
I distressed a moderate amount.
But the beauty of this paint of that you can control 
how distressed you want your project.
I think a little distressing goes a long way.
I like just enough to highlight the details and add some character.

 Oh, sweet chippy goodness.

 Milk paint, where have you been all my life?

And just one more.

I may be ordering this paint in every color.
{The colors are delish}

Thanks for stopping by!
