The generous folks at 
Were kind enough to send us some milk paint...



And we had the PERFECT project for it!



This sad little dry sink was BEGGING for paint...
milk paint, to be exact




 Milk paint is the perfect choice
over old, untreated wood
when your desired look
is distressed and worn
(you can also create other finishes with milk paint,
 but it really is ideally suited for this application)


 We selected "Marigold" for this project


 We wanted some depth, 
so we painted it OVER
 ASCP in Olive...
yep, you read that right...
we mixed ASCP and milk paint
with great results!




Milk paint comes in powder form
and at first, may seem a little intimidating...
just jump in and go for it!

It's a fun product...
and Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company
offers fabulous colors and great service

They also feature a new product called 
"SafePaint" which is best suited for walls...
We'll be trying that, as well...

  30. I posted about this giveaway on my Facebook page, Distressed, But Not Forsaken! And the mustard color is really growing on me now that I've seen it on furniture.

  31. I looked over OFMPC's page and am so glad they show examples of their paint on actual furniture. It's hard to tell sometimes what it will look like from a paint strip.

  37. Will go onto FB and like them, but I have no idea what color(s) I want to try. I have several pieces of (ugly-ish) honey pine living room pieces that desperately need a makeover... My sister-in-law is going to start selling this paint, but she lives in TX, and I live in CA.
