It’s hard to believe that so many amazing people have accepted my blog into their lives. I’m truly honoured to have reached so many people. I am thoroughly enjoying my time in Blogland.
To show gratitude and love for my readers I’ve got a few goodies up for grabs:
1 lb bag of Milk Paint
1 Bottle of Milk Paint Bond
2 Purdy Paint Brushes
If you’ve been reading the last few posts here you’ll see Milk Paint in full swing. I love using it so much, I want YOU to try it!
The wonderful people at Homestead House Paint Company have graciously agreed to donate their product for the giveaway… so a great big ‘Thank You’ to Homestead House.
A 1 lb bag of paint will mix to 2 quarts of paint and will cover about 150 sq. feet. That should last through a few projects! The Milk Paint Bond will allow the milk paint to adhere to any previously finished piece and because you can never have too many paint brushes, I’m throwing in a couple of those too.
The paint comes in the most fabulous colors. There’s sure to be something you’ll fall in love with. I used Acadia Pear for my Armoire Makeover, seen HERE and Steel Blue for the Beachy Entry Tables seen HERE.

I love using this tool. It just makes painting more fun. There are a few different types out there, but this is the one I use. It actually looks like this with a handle, but I found the handle … well … hard to handle. So I use mine without.
What you’ll need:
Wood Graining Tool
Glaze mixed with color
Brush for painting on glaze
Damp cloth and a dry cloth

I bought this table at a garage sale from a former antique dealer. The table came in pieces with no screws or hardware to hold it together. The finish had natural cracks in it that I didn’t want to lose. I cleaned off the dirt with a wet cloth so I had a clean starting point.
I started with a Steel Blue color in Milk Paint. For instructions on how to use Milk Paint go HERE. I wasn’t sure if just distressing it would give the look I wanted, so I decided to go a bit further.
