We finally got around to finishing up this gorgeous hutch...
The outside is GORGEOUS Cobalt Milk Paint
I have to admit, they are my favorite milk paint company
The colors are fresh, vibrant, and original
and the paint mixes up like nobodies business
Plus, they are just nice folks
and Stiltskin Studios likes to support nice folks
We love, and use, all sorts of paints
nothing distresses as authentically as Milk Paint
The pics don't lie...
it's hard, if not impossible, to recreate this look with other types of paint
We keep our technique a bit of a secret, so I can't share that with you,
but we sealed this with clean and dark wax glaze on top (very, very thin!)
Oh, did I mention it came with the original key??
Inside, we chose a crisp, clean white lacquer
It really sets off the heavy distressing, fretwork, and glorious, vibrant color
plus, the lacquer is hard and durable,
so you can pile in the dishes without fear of scratching the surface
I'm presently working on a chunky farmhouse table in the same Cobalt Milk Paint...
cant' wait to share that with you!
