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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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

Fusion Fresco


Fusion Mineral Paint has a new product to add texture and dimension to your décor called fresco.

Fresco?.. old world plaster look is what I think of when I saw it. I needed just the right piece for my vision so when these very simple styled end tables came along I decided to try this new product on them.

first I gave the tables a coat of little piggy in a messy pattern

then it was time to mix up the fresco powder and paint, I went 1:1 with newly released lichen


and used the same messy pattern application


when dry I put on a coat of casement


then sanded it down to reveal the dimension and colors
  and to give yet even more dimension and some added durability seeing they will be used more, I chose antiquing top coat and applied 2 coats


 here it is, very old world looking right?


a bit more close up


and here they are both together for their photo shoot


there are many ways to use this Fusion fresco powder, check out the website for more looks and instructions and try your hand at some old world charm
