Transformation Tuesday: Potting Table Makeover using Milk Paint
It always amazes me what a little paint can do to transform a piece from uggghhh, to oh yeah! Like this little number my neighbor put on the curb for the trash man.
Poor pigeon-toed girl. This garden table really baked under the hot California sun. After some simple repair work. I mixed up a batch of Miss Mustard Seed Luckett’s Green and gave it a quick coat.
Then I followed up with Miss Mustard Seed in Ironstone.
This piece was so dried out it really just soaked up all that paint and didn’t get chippy. I wanted those layers of green and raw wood to come through so I whipped out my sander and distressed the paint to reveal the green and raw wood underneath. To finish it I used Miss Mustard Seed Hemp Oil instead of wax.
Hemp oil is a great option because it is durable and it gives your wood moisture. This piece was super thirsty. It’s also natural and non toxic. It soaks into your paint and leaves your paint with a finish that is low sheen. I also used hemp oil because I thought someone might use this piece outdoors. If you finish a piece with wax and put it outside, even in non-direct light, the surface can get sticky in the heat of the day. Not good.
The end result is nothing short of awesome! This table kept its rustic charm, but found a whole new look with a little paint.
