Rediscovering Milk Paint
I bought some milk paint, always wanted to give it a try, should have done so long ago, I love it! It looks just awful on the first coat, but a little stain, a little varnish and perfect antique looking paint. Of course, blue is my favorite, but the black turned out nice too. I wish I had taken a before picture of everything, especially the blueberry crock, it was an ugly chipped up brown thing, now completely gorgeous. I got so many projects done, I will definitely have ebay fatigue by the end of this week. Now I just have to worry about the self appointed antique police who email-yell (you know those all caps notes) at me about painting antiques. Hey, they used to be ugly, now they are not!
