I recently purchased some milkpaint online to try. Now I know nothing about milk paint. It is only within the last year, when I started blogging, that I learned about the marvels of chalk paint. So I figured what the heck, give it a try. So here we go!
I turned to the likes of Miss Mustard Seed for some guidance. She has some great tutorials on the paint and even has her own line. I knew she would be a great resource for some online guidance. So I watched a few tutorials and got started.
Not having worked with this before, I mixed up the entire container just to be save. The paint is a bit lumpy, however the lumps disappeared when the paint was applied to the headboard. Here is the end result. I did love how easy it was to sand down, like the chalk paint. The other really great quality of this paint is the variation in color. This truly looks like a really old, rustic finish.
Let me know how your milk paint projects go. I would love to hear if you have any tips or suggestions.
