I have been wanting to try Old Fashioned Milk Paint for a while, so I ordered some in cream color. The paint was really easy to use. I just added warm water to make it a good consistency and stirred it to get all the little clumps out. It dries fast (30 minutes) and I love the authentic "old look" it creates. The best part about it is that it is non-toxic and biodegradable.
I adore the completely flat finish of the milk paint.
I found this flax colored antique, linen fabric online and recovered the seat using a staple gun. Then, I sewed a ruffle with the same fabric and attached it with the staple gun to the underside. I know I am a little ruffle obsessed, but I love how a ruffle can really dress it up!
