Milk Painted Dining Table in Homestead House Confederate Grey

I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.

When you work alone and need an assistant you have to think outside the box ;0) The leg is longer then an arm right?

For this table I went with Homestead House Milk Paint in Confederate grey. I used it on this jumbo chalkboard too.

After a good scrub, power sand to smooth the surface and a wipe down it was time to paint.

Two coats of the dark grey milk paint applied with my angled sash Zibra brush, which cut easily into the corners gave the table a gorgeous new look.

But I did not stop here, a light sanding to take down the milk paint to a smooth buttery soft surface

then apply Fusion Mineral Paint discontinued antiquing tough coat. It is just like their clear tough coat but as you can see, tinted with brown. This added warmth to the cool grey tone of the milk paint as well as providing a layer of sealed durability.

Cece Caldwell's Las Vegas Fuschia



When I received my Cece Caldwell Paint brand rep package this month, I found one of the newest 4 out of 6 released colors in my box; Las Vegas Fuschia. The name alone made me thing glitter and girls so I went with a sweet nightstand in cherry tones to try it on.


 
 

 after the first coat dried overnight well I tried putting the kukui stain over it to deepen

 
but found it was not really the look I had in mind so repainted 2 more coats back over

I put a layer of poly on the top to add durability, note the color deepens quite a bit with poly, then I put another coat of fuchsia over it and waxed the entire piece a couple times and distressed the edges to bring out the wood details

 


 and I added fun drawer liner for another twist of fun
This bold but sweet pink is perfect for the glam princess weather she be wee or teen or anyone wanting a bit of Las Vegas to add pizzazz to your room! Check out Cece Caldwell to see the other 3 newly released colors and perhaps a sneak peek of the 2 yet to come!

disclosure: As a CeCe Caldwells paint rep, they provided me with this paint in exchange for creating this showcase piece, thanks Cece!
