Milk Paint Makeover — Again!

Remember my lovely Milk Paint Makeover?   Well, I had a piece of glass on the top and took it off to take pictures for the Home Tour.  That night, the ol’ hubs set his half glass of cold water down and went to bed.  I woke up the next morning to this!

When I painted this piece, it was my first time using hemp oil as a “sealer.”

I sanded the top down really good.  Since I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White on the trim, I decided to paint the top Old White too.

When that was done, I felt the piece was “top heavy” with white.  I added some stripes on the legs to help balance it.

I then used Annie Sloan Clear Wax on the new paint and sand paper to lightly distress the edges of the table top.

I  finally “caved” on clear knobs for the hardware.  I wanted something similar to it’s original hardware, but because the space to put the hardware was so small, it was HARD to find ones that fit.  My mom mentioned that if I get the glass knobs it would go with the glass top if I chose to put it back on.  Good call, mama!

I like the “new” her over the “old.”  To me, the wax is way more effective at “sealing.”  NO, I don’t plan on leaving cold water glasses on top of it all the time.  It might be time for an experiment, sealers vs water!  What ya think?

Love it? Pin it!

  1. It really looks great! I love the contrast in the two colors! I love taking furniture I’ve redone and giving it new life again! I’m planning to redo my end table near my couch very soon!
