I've said it so many times...I love milk paint. There is just nothing better to use to get an authentic time-worn, chippy look. This dresser became my latest "client" for a makeover.
It looks like it has pretty wood grain, but it was actually faux painted. If it were in great shape, I would have polished it up and let her be, but there was so much damage.
After applying Miss Mustard Seed's Boxwood and a wax job, she now has new life!
The good thing about the previous layers of paint is that it made for an excellent base for the milk paint. As it did it's job in chipping, it also pulled off some of the layers, creating a wonderfully authentic look! I didn't have to do anything other than lightly sand - it did all of this on its own.
I do love some shabby chippy! Now available in our room at Deep Creek Vintage!
My assistant with this job was my right hand kitty man, Tiger. :) Isn't he handsome?
'til next time!
