I think I'm in love......with Primitive Life Organic Milk Paint!
A good friend of mine, Dawn Williams of When Pigs Fly Again (a most wonderful Antique Primitive Shop located in Mt. Dora, Florida), gave me a box of Primitive Life Milk Paint to try.
I have painted for many, many years, but never really painted a large piece of furniture.
Well, it just so happened that I came across this cupboard with good style and at a great price, but
it was painted pretty bad.
Unfortunately, this isn't the true before picture....this is after my husband sanded it. The paint was a glossy, yellowy color with florals painted on the bottom panels. I had also painted the top here.
The color of Primitive Life Milk Paint that I used is "Cotton".
If you are a follower of my Blog, you know I love all things white.
I mixed up the Milk Paint according to directions (I used my Magic Bullet for mixing which worked great),
and started painting.
The paint went on beautifully and I love the color, but........
I prefer a more distressed look.
(Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of the pure white cupboard)
So, I sanded the top, but this only brought out the 'creamy' color.
Humm, how about some brown glaze? Nope
Clear wax mixed with brown paint? Nope
Okay, lets put the cupboard in it's new home and see how it looks. Looks Good
After a few days, I knew I needed to come up with an idea to distress the cupboard....
Dry brushed with brown acrylic paint. Love It!
So, I have a new, favorite product with lots of ideas!
