Looking for a unique and easy way to update your furniture? Milk paint is a great option! It's a natural and eco-friendly paint that can give your furniture a distressed, farmhouse, or shabby chic look. Plus, it's relatively inexpensive and easy to use.
– Milk paint powder/Water – Cleaning solution – A natural bristle paintbrush – Primer (optional) – Topcoat (optional)
First, clean the furniture with something like Simple Green. Remove drawers & hardware. If your furniture is already painted, you may want to prime it to ensure that the milk paint adheres well.
Be sure to mix powder and water until the paint is smooth and there are no lumps. I use a whisk when mixing. Apply paint with a natural bristle brush. Make sure to let paint dry completely in between coats.
Clean hardware and spray paint to get the desired look you want.
For a special touch, finish off your furniture by adding contact paper to the drawers.
Use a top coat on your furniture before adding hardware back on. I like to use hemp oil with the same kind of brush.
That's it! You've now successfully painted your furniture with milk paint. Enjoy your new and improved furniture!
