You remember this table from yesterdays post, right?
I was painting this to re-sell but wanted to try to use chalk and milk paint to give you guys another review.
I haven’t made my home-made chalk paint yet, so I used ASCP.
I used the “Snowy white” milk paint as my “accent” color.
You do not have to use this little hand mixer but I picked one up at Salvation Army to see if it was a little smoother than last time.
It was also easy to dump some powder into my red paint container….add some water to “thickness” that I liked and mix.
You can handle that can’t you?
I think you can.
Don’t ever trim out your table like this.
That wasn’t that smart. I decided to heavily distress this table and you could see the white under the blue around edges.
If you do trim before you do your main color, then do it neater.
I screw up, so you won’t.
I intentionally did the blue messy over the white as I was heavily distressing.
And I had no clue how to define the white, since I did it so thick first. So, I decided to go with messy. I felt that it would hide more.
You’re welcome again.
Cute little table, isn’t it?
Love or hate?
Speak up if you love…..be merciful if you hate ; )
Main difference between the paints.
The milk paint sands off much easier.
So you have to be very careful.
It left a more brushed look. Not as finished as chalk paint.
It actually dried before the chalk paint and I had no problem with it bonding without priming.
So, win there!
Would I suggest it?
Would I use it again?
Does that help?
You tell me.
Let me know!
