How To Milk Paint Farmhouse Thrifted Finds

Over the coming week’s I have a tonne of projects that I will be sharing with you using things that belonged to my hubby. You see he moved to where I live which is about 4 hours away from where I live and his whole entire house was popped into storage.
Then one thing led to another and we got married and decided to make this our home. So all of his goodies have been in storage for the past 10 years. So we decided it was time to get it all shifted over to us and start the whole process of going through it all. 

 

 

Supplies needed:

Step 1 – Depending on how many goodies you’ve found, mix up your Farmhouse White using a 1:1 ratio with warm water. For all of these goodies, I used 3tbls of Milk Paint to 3 tbls of warm water and still had some left over. Let sit to combine. Then take an old rag and TSP mixed with warm water and clean all of your pieces. This creates a nice clean surface for your paint to adhere to.

Step 2 –  Then using your brush give your pieces 2 coats of Milk Paint. Letting each coat dry.

Step 3 –  For the ceramic vase, I wet distressed. To do this take an old rag and wet it. Then using your fingers rub over parts where you would like to distress {See video tutorial} Then for the other pieces take 120 grit sandpaper and sander and distress to your liking.
