An Old End Table Gets A Sassy Update With Milk Paint
I am super excited to share my latest furniture transformation with you! An Old End Table Gets A Sassy Update With Milk Paint thanks to the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company.
It’s amazing how some paint, love, and time can completely bring your furniture around the bend from ugly and useless to stunning and functional again.
Before I show you my project, let me tell you a little bit about the company and why I love them so much.
The sponsor for this post is The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co. The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company provided me with the paint and/or other products for this charming transformation and I’m so grateful that I am able to be a part of it!
Be sure to check out my other Old Fashioned Milk Paint transformations too! You can see my old jewelry chest using Milk Paint here and my farmhouse mirror transformation here. The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company 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!
OK, so let’s get to it!
I used Salmon and Sea Green and then applied a matte glaze over the entire end table to protect it. I also use Extra Bond from Old Fashion Milk Paint as well that helps the Milk Paint adhere to non-porous surfaces.
This is my old Lane end table. At the time, it was a beauty. I love the bleach blonde wood. As time went by, it ended up in the basement and became a battered old useless item.
I started out with two coats of Salmon Milk Paint. I decided to use my HomeRight paint sprayer for this step. It was super easy and went super-fast too. If you’re not using a paint sprayer it’s time you did! A good paint sprayer makes every paint job easier and gives you the professional results you want.
This is the model I have – HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer – it is simply the best and easiest to use too.
The Salmon color is simply stunning by itself too.
Then I added one coat of the Sea Green. I made sure not to apply it too heavily as I wanted some of the Salmon to peek through. Thankfully, the weather was perfect outside to take this project out there and enjoy the gorgeous fall weather!
Some spots I painted very lightly and others are a bit heavier to achieve the looks I was after.
I am so thrilled with the results! This is one of my top favorite Milk Paint projects to date. A stunning combination of colors and a piece we will cherish! Once the matte glaze was applied, it sealed the deal!
I couldn’t think of a better use for the Salmon. I love how it peeks through the Sea Green.
It’s a chippy effect without the work!
I tried a few different places in my living room to see where they fit best. Staging furniture is so much fun!
It ended up in my living room nestled between my recliner and my love seat. The perfect spot!
Using two different colors and layering them gives you the same type of effect as chippy paint but without all the work.
Be creative! Blend colors that would be outside of your comfort zone.
Creating a furniture transformation like this one is so rewarding. Upcycling your old furniture is the best way to save money too.
I hope you get to transform a piece of old furniture real soon too. I know you will love the Milk Paint too.

Nice job! I haven’t used my paint sprayer with milk paint. I should have when I painted the swing and didn’t even think about it. Thanks so much for the reminder. And thanks for sharing the beautiful results you got by layering the two colors. So happy that the old table has found new life. Congrats!! Susie from Chelsea Project
I love this. Everything you do is so creative.Wish I had the time and energy!
This turned out so nice! I love the salmon color peeking through. Just gorgeous!
It’s nice to hear that you used your sprayer. I was wondering how the OFMP would do. Your table is fabulous! Great job.
Your table looks great! I’ve never sprayed milk paint before, but now I think I should! Thanks for sharing, Cynthia
Thanks so much Cynthia! The paint sprayer worked great with Milk Paint. I was thrilled at how fast it went. I love these colors they have really transformed that old table into a piece I will cherish. Thanks much for stopping by and have an awesome day!
Hi Val, oh yes. Using the paint sprayer was the best idea ever! The milk paint worked perfectly and the two coats were done in minutes. I did the second color by hand because I wanted to use it heavier in some areas than others. I love this old table now and the combination of salmon and sea green worked out great. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful say!
Thanks so much Carol. Always a pleasure hearing from you!
Thanks so much Michelle! I love the combination of salmon and sea green. I love this piece now and am thrilled at how well it turned out.
Hi Susie, oh my gosh. That paint sprayer worked out perfectly with the milk paint. The two undercoats were literally done in minutes. I did the second color by hand only because I wanted to pay attention to the detail of layering it correctly so the salmon would peek through. This was my most fun milk project yet!
Great job on this table Carolann. I love the two toned effect.
Can you use Milk Paint to change colour of Honey Oak Stair Railings, Spindles and Kitchen Cabinets ???
HI KK, yes you can. When painting over things that already have a finish all you need to use it their bonding agent. For raw or heavily sanded wood, you can use it without the bonding agent. I love Milk Paint and the colors are stunning!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Thanks so much Anj! It’s always fun transforming something ugly into something pretty lol xo
Carolann I love what you did here. The way the salmon peeks through the blue is so pretty. It’s all about the details. I too have recently started using OFMP and am really enjoying experimenting with it.
Thank you so much Mary. I really love the two tones colors. You will like OFMP but it does take some getting used to. Thanks again and have a great rest of the week!
Carolann, I also love the table you did using two colors. So, are you saying that you did not have to use sandpaper to remove some of the blue paint?
Thank you! I love that table too. I did use two colors and the coral and turquoise look so beautiful paired together. I did use a sanding block to reveal the coral color beneath I also made sure to keep some of it exposed during the painting process. I used a paint gun for this particular process and it made it easy to spray exactly where I needed to. Thanks so much for stopping by to comment. Have a great week!
