A Video Tutorial on Milk Painting an Antique Side Table
When I first began using Milk Paint on antique furniture, I watched SO MANY tutorials to learn the process. Being a visual learner, I needed to see everything in addition to hearing and reading about it. Well, if you’re like me, then you’re really going to enjoy this 3 part series on how I Milk Painted an antique side table.
My Antique Drop Leaf Side Table
As many of you know, at the time of this blog post, Marc and I have been living in our new home for a few months.
I have been having the absolute best time furnishing and decorating it. Up until now, we have been very limited in the amount of furniture and home decor we were able to fit in our living space. We have always lived in an apartment that was less than 1,000 square feet, and run the furniture business out of each one, so space was tight to say the least!
Now that we have 3 beautiful floors of living space, I’m able to stretch my furniture-loving muscles and fill our home with pieces I absolutely love.
During one of my trips to Morgantown Market, I saw this antique side table with a small drawer and drop leaves.
Because of its narrow footprint, it nestled perfectly in between our sofa and loveseat that we purchased recently.
While I loved the shape and style of the table, the color needed to be adjusted to suit our farmhouse style decor, and still have a coastal light feel about it.
Prepping the Side Table for Paint
As you all know, prep work is essential for a quality paint finish. You can watch the video below to see how I began the prep process for my antique side table project!
Stay tuned for Part 2 of the process where I show you how to apply Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in the color Schloss.
