Milk Paint from Miss Mustard Seed

It’s taken a good many months to pick up my milk paint from our local distributor and then a few more months to actually use it.  And to be honest, when I first brushed it on I was a bit confused. But I’ve learned a thing or two about paint and patience.

I had found this little, sad, cottage table with water marks on the top and thought Miss Mustard Seed was just the one to give it new life. So it became my first victim.

I had been chintzy and mixed it watery so it went on thin. I then put my doubts to bed and let it dry over night. In the morning, with help from a rag, it became some kind of chippy wonderful I’ll tell you! Just like Miss Mustard Seed said it would be.

But I wanted a little more coverage so I add a second coat before I went to work. It was looking quite appealing when I got home that night. I waxed it with a clear wax and buffed it to a dull finish.  I think I like it. What do you think?
