Next I tried The Real Milk Paint Co. in Peacock. It is a great color, a good medium blue. I was hoping for a very chippy finish. Of course I didn't get it! I painted this Ethan Allen end table that my sister in law gave me.
This paint mixed better but still the fine powder gets everywhere! The paint went on smooth but didn't cover as well as I was hoping. It took 2-3 coats to get the coverage I wanted. Then I sat back & waited for the magic to happen. Nothing! It didn't crackle & chip so I started lightly sanding the whole piece. It sands very easily & once I started sanding it did chip off nicely in some areas but mostly the back, where no one will see it! Before I sanded the top I added this stencil to the top.
Then I sanded down the top & waxed with CeCe Caldwell clear wax.
Here is the very chippy back, sorry for the sunny picture!
I am planning on trying Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint next & hope it is as great as I have heard!
This end table is available for sell at Countryside Antiques in Braselton.
