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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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 champlain dresser turned sideboard love


Everyone loves color but for large investment pieces I usually choose a timeless neutral. This very large but solidly made oak dresser is made to last but the finish was dated. Champlain to the rescue, it took the dresser from dated to a statement!




dark wax was added to give added dimension and definition to all the great details





This statement piece sold in about half an hour of posting and is now serving as an amazing sideboard in a fabulous home where it provides loads of display area and storage for the family. Thinking outside the box for a pieces purpose and refreshing it in a new amazing color can give so many pieces you may have new meaning and use. Check out Fusion Mineral Paint for a selection of fantastic colors to choose from.
