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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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

Country Chic blog post #7 ~ Nesting table in teal hues

Nesting tables.. perfect pieces to save space but improve functionality when needed. I purchased a set in the tired orange stain and immediately thought fun colors. I did waiver on safe shades of black/grey but in the end, my love of color prevailed. I choose my new favorite, Country Chic's Aurora as the first color. It is such a pretty color but I am sad it is a limited edition color, perhaps I need to stock up on another pot! I had yet to try dark roast, a lovely shade of coffee brown so that went perfect with aurora for the smallest table and I choose a teal paint I had on hand for the largest table.

A quick scrub and painting began. The limited edition Aurora is the all in one formula and the dark roast is regular. I am a fan of Country Chic's regular formula and this dark brown color did not let me down.
 good bye orange stain, hello Aurora

I gave all 3 tables 3 coats of dark wax to seal up with a soft finish. I tried out my new large wax brush from Country Chic and LOVE it, it is the perfect size and applies the wax amazingly!!  Once finished and posted it did not take long for these beauties to sail out the door.
