How To Beautifully Renew Furniture Using Natural Milk Paint
Yes, there is an all natural way to transform your dull lifeless furniture using Milk Paint. I purchased a jewelry chest years ago and through the years it took a pretty good beating. I wanted a way to renew it again while transforming it at the same time and was so thrilled to discover Milk Paints. This Old Fashioned Milk Paint is a genuine Milk Paint that was created by Charles Thibeau in 1974. The company was passed down to the current owner Anne Thibeau, who is wildly passionate about the products and their Green Factor!
Since then they have sold their paint to professionals who are either restoring original Colonial or Shaker furniture, making reproductions or striving for an interior design look that is both authentic and beautiful. Milk Paint is now gaining an even wider usage because it contains only ingredients that are all-natural and will not harm the environment. Their authentic real milk paint is truly a “green paint” that comes in 20 colors.
I am so excited to be a part of this group of amazingly talented bloggers. I did receive these products for free from www.milkpaint.com to which I’m grateful.
So, I began my jewelry cabinet adventure and decided I wanted to go with your basic black and white. My bedroom is undergoing a transformation too soon and since I’m not sure of the color palette I’m choosing, I thought this was the safest way to go color wise. Speaking of color palettes, be sure to follow me on Pinterest. I have an awesome paint profiles board you will definitely want to follow so you can get some inspiring ideas for paint colors!
After years of not so gentle use and at the same time boring and lifeless jewelry cabinet looked like this. I moved it out into the foyer so I can start my Milk Paint adventure.
These are the colors of Milk Paint I used to transform my cabinet.
In addition to the Milk Paint, I used a product called Extra Bond which is a concentrated polymer emulsion. Can be mixed with the first coat of Milk Paint to promote adhesion to surfaces other than bare wood or raw masonry. It’s also Non-toxic (zero VOC’s).
I’m so pleased with the results. I think this jewelry cabinet will fit perfect anywhere in my bedroom.
I love how perfectly this jewelry cabinet fits perfect in between my two closets. I love the black and white accent too!
Milk Paint was easy to mix and use. It was a very fun experience.
I love how this paint is odorless too.
I look forward to my continued relationship with Old Fashioned Milk Paint and am so excited about the next transformation. The design possibilities are endless!
