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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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

Country Chic's Wanderess rustic style


Country Chic Paint's limited edition wanderess is a lovely green with morphing color changes depending on original base colors and top coats. I used it on a sweet photo box and it was a sage green, pretty!




However on this cherry stained coffee table it took on a more blue hue and wait until you see what dark wax changed it to.



I am pretty stoked to try my new large oval brush from Country Chic Paint



the brush worked well, here is one coat applied, being such a dark base I went with 3 coats


then it was dark wax time, don't be alarmed when you find a thin skin on your dark wax, it is a sealing barrier the natural ingredients make when left for a bit, just peel off and go 

I love the deep pigment this antiquing wax has, it gave this piece such added dimension and character


here is half with and half just wanderess color alone


and after a full clear wax coat and buff, here she is.. LOVE <3 the rustic look it has
