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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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

To add even more interest and dimension, Fusion Mineral Paint's clear glaze mix…

Sea Storm coffee table

Sea Storm... dark ominous and threatening.. deep intense blue grey color.. that is what I think when I hear the words and it is pretty close to the color Country Chic created in their limited summer edition color of the same name.

I took a dark cherry wood coffee table with glass insert top and updated it to this new color; the result, a fresh new pop of fun color.


 I put on 2 coats wet distressing the edges between to reveal a bit of the original dark wood finish
 then put on a coat of tough coat to give a more durable finish but it did not go on as smooth as I hoped perhaps due to warmer shop temperatures so once dry I recoated with the all in one finish sea storm and wet distressed the edges a final time

 this is the end result .. bring on the sea storms
