Old Fashion Milk Paint

I have been super busy at the shop! I finally got to order my OLD FASHION MILK PAINT!!! I got a few "PINT" samples in and let me tell ya.... I'M HOOKED!! I love the way it "looks like" I spent hours sanding to give it a worn out appearance!! Something totally unexpected and kinda funny happened, and it was a pleasant surprise! After I painted this piece, (ONE COAT) I sanded the edges. Well, my husband, trying to be helpful got a damp sponge to wipe off the dust from sanding. I wish I had a video of what happened next. As he started wiping, the paint started coming off!! He looked at me real fast, like a little kid doing something he knew was wrong! He goes "OOPS" I looked over and I said...OH NO...Then as I looked closer, I said "WOW...KEEP GOING, I LOVE IT" It did not come off every where, just in random spots, like where the paint was thicker etc. I am totally SOLD on this!! Now, I must say, Milk Paint has it's place. I personally will not paint everything with this, because I like to have a variety at the shop, but I will most certainly paint my share of pieces with it!! I am planning on workshops to show "HOW TO'S" I hope you will join in on the FUN!!! OH, and by the way, I used the color called Marigold, and with one pint I painted this item and an end table and I still have enough to paint another end table!!!


I'd love to hear from you!
