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I purchased yet another outdated orange stained pedestal dining table that needed TLC.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

classic refinished coffee table in plaster-cappucinno


When a great customer offered me purchase of her mission style coffee and end table set I jumped. I love this chunky craftsman look. It did however have some water damage on the top so needed some reloving.


Orbital power sander to the rescue, a few 80-120 grit pads later it was all sanded off and ready to get a new look.


let the sanding begin and done, now for a good scrub and let dry well


I chose my favorite Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. I sand lightly with 0000 steel wool between coats to make it even smoother. I went with 3 coats of the dark brown stain and then added the natural color for additional durability. Each coat was left over night to dry well.


for the base I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster.
Two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander and left to dry overnight


I like to add some depth to this creamy color so I added Homestead House espresso furniture wax . It adds character too and easy to brush on and wipe off. I also likes it adds a bit more durability to the bottom shelf surface. Time to reattach bottom shelf and hardware and haul in to stage this beauty for sale. Did I mention I have the matching end table that can be done in the same techniques and colors?
