Milk Paint Application
Next, it’s milk paint time! I mixed the milk paint up according to the manufacture’s instructions, and then began painting over the stained surface.
Milk paint dries so fast and goes on so quickly and evenly!
But one problem, I wasn’t so sure about the color.
As I started distressing it with the paint scraper, I felt like the project needed a more vibrant color. The slate blue just wasn’t doing it for me.
So I mixed in a green milk paint with the leftover blue milk paint to get this pretty turquoise color.
And painted over the slate blue.
And then scraped off more milk paint. The milk paint scrapes off easily, and allows for a more chippy, authentic distressed look.
And you can distress hard to reach areas easily too!
The results are authentic and unique. I love the stain wood contrasting against the color!
