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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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

Fusion Casement strikes again

Recently I did a dresser in Fusion's casement (shown below); a perfect white and topped it with some metallic sparkle. Time to make the matching big sister long 9 drawer dresser match it (shown above).

dresser in original state
3 coats of casement colored Fusion paint and it had a fresh new look as well
 this is coverage after just on coat on the drawers

the hardware was scrubbed, refreshed in gold and given a coat of metallic sealer

then once all hardware was put back on and the paint dry, it was ready to be set up and find its new home

 the original hardware is just so awesome

I have received product in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint
