What a change up for this coffee table don't you think?

The before shot

The coffee table was part of this set. The sofa table was painted a warm white and the end table, a cerused charcoal.

After cleaning well with Simple Green cleaner, warm water and a cloth, I tried using this paint stripper to remove the old finish. It did not work as planned so on to plan B.

The top was power sanded with my Dewalt orbital sander to be sure any loose old finish was removed and smoothed.

I decided to paint it in the same colors I did a recent long statement piece dresser.

Miss Mustard Seed milk paint ~ linen cedar chest

I have been dying to try Miss Mustard Seed milk paint and products forever, finally I got my chance. I chose a universal color, linen, to try on my first project; a dark wood cedar chest.
there is a wee learning curve to mixing but once you get equal parts water and powder mixed up, on goes the first coat
 then a second, it naturally resists and chips where it wants for an old fashioned look

 I gave the whole thing a light sanding before sealing with a dark wax followed by a coat of clear wax
 and I used a darker patina wax to highlight details, corners etc to add to the aged feel and look

 cedar lined goodness

and all sides finished for a stand alone piece.. what do you think?

I have received product in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains a sponsored link for Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

UPDATE: I was featured on Embracing Changes inspiration party, thank you!!
