It’s been a LONG time since I’ve shared any painted furniture pieces with you. Though I love decorating and crafting, transforming an old piece of furniture into something new is my absolute favorite project to tackle! This vintage side table started it’s life in the 1940’s and who knows where her travels may have taken her before I found her in a garage FULL of furniture collected by another old furniture lover like me!
This is what she looked like when I brought her home, where she quickly joined the pile in my OWN garage until I could decide exactly what I was going to do with her. Sometimes it takes a little time to “see” what something will become.
This side table was one of my first experiences with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. Though I use many different types of paints I really do LOVE MMS. I love the fact that you never know what it is going to do! You paint it on and it may cover completely, or it may start doing that magical “chippy” thing all on it’s own, making your creation look as if it’s been aged over time. It is SO much fun . . . IF you like surprises . . . and I do!
painting, drying, allowing the chipping process to take place, waxing in different areas, and painting again . . .
until it arrived at the place of pure perfection!
This is true beauty!
