As we were moving all our paint
over to the new studio
I realized I have much milk paint.
Like, a lot.
As you probably well know,
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint came along
and swept me right off my feet...
so there sat my former love
(ok, at least "like")
getting dusty and feeling neglected
I've been wanting a more vibrant
turquoise and decided I'd dust off the Milk Paint
I custom mixed this color
and had the PERFECT dresser for it...
it was not perfect at all
and that was the beauty of it...
bumps, bruises, scrapes and scratches
like I said, perfect!
As you can see from the photos
Milk Paint is a bit different than Chalk Paint
You have to really have the right piece in mind
and let go of control a bit...
'cause you're never sure exactly what you're going to get
Sometimes, that's part of the charm!
These photos are after THREE coats...
with no manual distressing...
it's just how it covers.
It's one of the best and
one of the worst aspects of Milk Paint
If I wanted full coverage, I'd be in for a long night!!
We like to use an additive
when using Milk Paint
and we chose to topcoat this piece
in a Milk Paint topcoat product
although you can certainly use
your ASCP wax instead!
I won't be giving up my ASCP
But I do like to mix it up
every now and again...!
No, there isn't an "after" photo...
we still have to sand and stain the top...
