Hello friends! Have I got a Valentine’s treat for you!! If you found Clockworkinteriors because you’re a fan of painted furniture, go grab a cup of coffee or tea, put your feet up, and be prepared to be wowed. You all know that I’m a Brand Blogger for The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, right? But were you aware that there’s a whole team of us?! I can’t think of a better way to show you just how versatile milk paint is than to share some of the other Brand Blogger’s favorite projects. There is so much talent out there in Blogville. You may be familiar with some of the Brand Bloggers, but hopefully you’ll find a couple of new blogs that inspire you, as well. 😀
(As a courtesy, please pin directly from the artist’s site. Thank you!) And if you like their project, let them know. 😀 Everybody loves and appreciates nice comments! 😀 So in no particular order, here is 20 Reasons to Love Old Fashioned Milk Paint!
Don’t let the name fool you! Even if old fashioned is in it’s name, you most certainly can achieve a modern look with OFMP! Just look at this MCM geometric dresser that Jenni of Riveted Studio transformed. To say it’s spectacular would be an understatement!
I was gobsmacked when I first saw this STUN-NING empire dresser restored by Susan of Saw Nail and Paint. Make sure to give yourself some extra time to check out Susan’s site. It’s just beautiful and full of lovely photographs and great tutorials.
Cathy from Revolutionary Redesigns is a true craftsman. She does an amazing job of keeping the historical integrity of a piece, while still giving it a modern fresh makeover. Did you know there are historical reproduction stencils? I didn’t until I saw Cathy’s Sea Green accent table. And don’t get me started on the missing veneer she turned into an asset!! Be amazed ….
For many, farmhouse living and rustic home décor is still a look they love. Did you know you can layer milk paint to achieve the look of weathered barn wood?! Lee Ann of Creative Moments 10 achieved just such a look on an old coffee table. This is a true trash to treasure. Sorry, Lee Ann, but that was one ugly table before you got your hands on it!!
Val from Love My Diy Home is the queen of dry brushing, and her post on this lovely antique side table even comes with a dry brushing video tutorial! All Val’s hard work paid off, and her antique table is beautiful!
My sweet friend Susie from The Chelsea Project mixed up her own custom color for an outdoor porch swing. I’m obsessing over the gorgeous color she came up with! Clearly, Susie is another blogger who is comfortable with her camera. LOL I want to be just like her when I grow up! 😉
Thea of That Sweet Tea Life is an expert at giving old “treasures” a new lease on life. And her recent transformation of an antique linen cabinet is no exception. I actually gasped when I first saw it. No lie. Thea was going for the look of soapstone, and boy did she achieve that. Don’t you just want to touch it?!!
Debra of Shoppe No. 5 is a newer member to the OFMP Brand Bloggers team, but she is certainly not new to rescuing and reinventing old furniture. I am completely smitten with her recent transformation of an old school desk. It puts me right back in Catholic school, except our desks weren’t this cool!
Don’t let it’s modern look fool you. The black and white checkered burst design that Cathy of Revolutionary Redesigns created for a dresser is actually a vintage colonial design! You’ll definitely want to read the whole post. I’m in awe.
Jes of My DIY Envy is another new OFMP Brand Blogger. Welcome, Jes! I love her transformation of a little side table where she layered different shades of Driftwood OFMP. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Jes’ work in the upcoming year!
I love Michelle’s (Michelle J Designs) transformation of an old cabinet to be used for bathroom storage. Michelle chose the OFMP color Buttermilk, which truthfully was not a color on my radar … until now!! I can’t stop looking at this gorgeous cabinet! Great job, Michelle!
Carolann of Sassy Townhouse Living layered two total opposite colors for an end table makeover. This post has great tips for working smarter, not harder, and I just love Carolann’s final result!
Brenda of Unique Junktique is another new Brand Blogger, but I’ve been following Brenda’s work for quite a while because she is a regular competitor in the FFF Contest. I love, love, love her vintage writing desk makeover. The way she layered colors is perfection!
My serpentine dresser was a true trash to treasure. Everyone in the family liked this makeover, and I actually decided to keep this piece!
But I think my favorite OFMP project of mine was the antique gateleg table I painted in OFMP Driftwood. A friend actually ended up buying this table, so I’m happy it went to a good home.
And last, but certainly not least, is the sweetest little desk makeover from Fabiola of Fabifabu. She gave a vintage desk a beautiful makeover with Tavern Green, which happens to be one of my favorite OFMP colors! I know the photo size doesn’t gel with the other projects I’ve included, but I couldn’t leave it out. It’s just too cute!
So, as you can see, the looks you can achieve with milk paint is endless. Milk paint is so much more than just, “the paint you use to get that chippy look”. I Hope you’ve enjoyed this round up! I know I have. I’m seriously thinking I need to up my game!! As always, if you have any questions regarding milk paint, please don’t hesitate to ask. Till next time, Cynthia
