This was one of my favorite pieces to refinish. She only stands 60" tall but she stands to claim some attention!!! I decided to give my new delivery of Miss Mustard Seeds Luckett's Green Milk Paint a whirl. Let me say....it was my first attempt at milk paint...yes I was nervous. I did call on a little help from my friend Sheri Carle at Vintage Retold. She gave me that nudge I needed. Thanks Sheri!!
|Isn't she darling....all 60" of her!|
|So I started painting a second coat of Linen....guess what? It came off in the same exact places....hmmmm that's probably why it came off in the first place....it was meant to have no paint there! Go figure!|
|Next I decided she needed a little darkness to her. I rubbed the entire piece with Annie Sloan Dark Wax. |
|Messy...I should be wearing gloves BUT that would be like reading the directions...who does that??|
|Look at all her loveliness!!|
|I gave her a little sanding here and there then reapplied dark wax.|
|All finished and I think she turned out fantastic for my first milk paint adventure! She is going in my booth at the Great Lakes Coloma Antique Mall and will be for sale $275.|
