Milk Paint Does It Again – A DIY Project

I love using milk paint to update vintage furniture. One of my favorite projects was redoing this amazing Armoire. Today I am excited to share my latest DIY milk paint project.

It’s a new month and I have a new theme.

The theme for March is Remodel and Renovate and I am starting out the month with a cabinet I redid with milk paint! I love using milk paint to paint vintage furniture. You paint it on and it flakes off and looks so original! Every time I use milk paint, I absolutely love the end result.

Check out how I made this vintage coffee table and this old wooden chest. I painted this armoire as well. There are a lot of different ways you can use Old Barn Milk Paint, which you can see on the Old Barn Milk Paint site. I like my projects to look old, vintage, and chippy. I use the “throw the paint on, scrape it and love it” approach.

Most of you remember I took a dream trip to the HGTV HOME® by Sherwin-Williams Simply Blissful Color Collection back in early December.
