The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company provided me with the product to complete this furniture makeover, so this is technically a sponsored post. However, we all know I love, and have been painting with milk paint for years. 😀
Hello friends! Quick project to share with you today. I’m calling this the Garage Sale Chair. Not because it came from a garage sale, although it most likely did. 😀 I’m calling it the Garage Sale Chair because I painted it during a lull in garage sale customers. And I decided to share it with you today to reiterate just how quick and easy it is to paint with milk paint!
(And, yes, that is a Seattle Seahawks Wagon! So cute!!)
As mentioned, there was a lull in garage sale customers, and no one was interested in this all wood, colonial looking chair that I had priced at a whopping $3. I was bored, so I decided to paint the chair with leftover Old Fashioned Milk Paint from my serpentine dresser. And when I say quick, I mean it. We’re talking less than ten minutes here. (FYI: I’ve stored leftover milk paint in my refrigerator for a couple of weeks, and have never had a problem with it.)
After the sale, I gave the chair another quick coat and lots of chipping started. Projects like a simple chair are the perfect opportunity to experiment. With it’s dark color, I wanted to see how much Daddy Van’s dark wax would deepen the color. One coat was all it took, and I love how deep, dark and rich it looks. This $3 chair is a winner.
It kept me from being bored during a garage sale (which I say “never again”!); I was able to use up old product; I experimented with wax finishes; and now I have extra seating in our living room that goes rather nicely with Hubby’s clocks!
Are you ready to give milk paint a try?
I’m here and happy to answer any questions you may have! Told you … quick post and an even quicker project! Hope you have a wonderful week, Cynthia
p.s. Doesn’t every long case clock need it’s own mouse??!
Of course this is my daughter’s creation. She stuck it in my Christmas stocking a couple years ago, and he’s been hanging around ever since. He makes me happy! 😀
