Milk Paint Project

I started with a pair of antique twin beds that had a stained finish. It took me a long time to build up the nerve to paint them but I finally gave in and I am thrilled with the results!

I was getting the room ready for my friend Beth Lewis of Olde Tyme Marketplace in Marshville, NC to come for a visit…it needed to be perfect and I was determined!

I used The Primitive Life Organic Milk Paint in the color “Skillet” and Howard’s wax to finish the project.

I wanted to use the colors red, black and white because I felt like they complimented a collection of old advertising signs I was going to hang above the bed. I have been collecting white signs with black letters for over 20 years!

A few more touches of red and black and our guest room was ready!

Sometimes it's the simple things...

I looked up and it was there…not planned or staged, just simple beauty. Stop for just a moment, slow down, you never know what you’ll see.
