Marvelous Milk Paint Makeovers

As 2016 comes to a close and we welcome the new year, I cant help but reflect on some lessons learned in the last year!  One would be MILK PAINT.  This past year I finally braved true milk paint and even became a brand blogger for 
The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company!


 This really pushed me to experiment more and enjoy the milk paint process.

I also became more familiar with many other milk paint enthusiasts as well as
others that were just learning through it like me! So here we go,
how about we take a look at some of most
Marvelous Milk Paint Makeovers
of the year!

First I will share my favorite of my own pieces painted in Old Fashioned Milk Paint.  I created it using layers of custom mixes of Pitch Black and Snow White,. I really enjoyed learning to be comfortable with following my own aesthetic,..

I also absolutely love the idea of taking a small piece already absorbed into your home and giving it new life like a side table or a nightstand…

I Absolutely LOVE how Debra at Shoppe No. 5 made this mirror seem to almost have an antiqued enamel finish that had naturally crackled and pitted over time!
