There is nothing more special than when a beautiful reader contacts me to see if I would like a piece of furniture to flip. This was the case for this old orange pine coffee table. Let me tell you I have felt so honoured giving it a new lease on life. Sharing today How To Milk Paint and Stamp A Coffee Table.
How to Milk Paint And Stamp A Coffee Table
I just love that when we have had a favourite piece of furniture for many years it can be continued to be loved with a fresh coat of paint. With this coffee table makeover, I decided to go with milk paint and add a little bit of a twist with some stamping in the final steps.

When mixing Milk Paint should I use cold or warm water?
Using warm water is always advised because this helps mix up the milk paint powder better and avoid clumps. Always mix at least 10 minutes before you start painting your project. This will give the paint enough time to combine completely.
Step 1 – Remove the door handles. Grab your TSP and some warm water and clean down the entire coffee table. Using your sander and 40 grit sandpaper, sand your coffee tabletop all the way to the raw wood until all varnish has been removed.
Then go over again with 120 grit sandpaper to remove any sanding belt marks. Sand the back front and sides of your coffee table using 120 grit sandpaper.

Step 2 – Apply another coat of boxwood milk paint using your brush and let dry. Then using 120 grit sandpaper distress the back, front and sides of the coffee table to your liking.
Step 3 – Load up your brayer with white ink and apply to the Bohemia Stamp. Stamp onto your coffee table and let the in completely dry. Have fun making up your own design! Then lightly distress using 120 grit sandpaper.
Final Step – Grab your wax brush and wax the entire coffee table including the top for extra protection. Pop your door handles back on and you’re all done!
