Unfinished End Table



This little lady has caught my eye. I'm not one to use yellow... it's just not in my eye of color. But, I am loving her. I feel like there is a burst of sun in my kitchen right now.
Here she is before.

I used TSP to wipe her down good, and remove the oils that may have built up over the years. I chose not to sand this piece. I find once I add the bonding agent to the Milk Paint, it adhere's well. I used my Homestead House Milk Paint in Orchre. It's not quite a bright yellow--- more of a soft yellow. Homestead House is the maker of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, and they have a rainbow of colors beyond MMS.

So, that's how easy it was to paint.
1. Clean
2. Paint

{NIGHT SHOT}

The lady I'm Painting this for, would like white drawers. I will update the post tomorrow [with the white]. Is it just me, or does anyone else get excited to share a new piece. I am willing to take a picture in poor lighting and unfinished, because I can not wait till tomorrow. Jeeze... one day I will be granted with patience, just not tonight.

Here's another beautiful mountain picture from our ski trip to Jasper on the weekend.

  12. Love the table with the milk paint. I'm another who would leave the drawers dark. The contrast is perfect. Can't wait to see it with the drawers painted white.
