Primitive Child's Cupboard Makeover....With Milk Paint, Of Course!

We had the most beautiful day today!  Clear blue skies, light breeze and tons of sunshine...  The perfect day to get more done from my pile.

Here's one that I picked to do this morning.  I bought this really cute vintage child's pine cupboard last week and knew exactly where it was headed.  The pine was o.k....but it lacked color.  I did some research and it seems that royal blue was a common color back in the day - and so was milk paint.  That made it super easy to decide which paint I would use.

I chose Miss Mustard Seed's Flow Blue (no surprise there!).  I love this rich blue color and it was perfect for adding a little something extra to the piece.

One coat was all it needed.  I left the backboard alone to add to the primitive feel.

I sanded it down to show the texture and wood.

Then used Hemp Oil to finish it off. 

The color now makes the piece pop!

It will be heading to the Lucketts Spring Market with us in just a few weeks.  Time is flying and I still have so much more to do.....

'til next time!
