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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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 chocolate "matching" nightstands


Who wants some more chocolate? I do! And who says night stands have to be exact to match? I don't! I took these very similar wood nightstands and turned them into his & hers matching nightstands, follow along to see how simple it was.


I found almost identical nightstand but not quite, removed the old hardware, scrubbed well, filled the hardware holes and painted 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate on them


I find nightstands get lots of wear on top with glasses of water being the worst culprit so I put 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint tough coat wipe on poly to add additional durability. New hardware was added to complete the "matching" process. Same color, same hardware... Now they are the perfect his and hers nightstands, agree?
