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!
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.
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 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 it 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.
