Milk Paint Table Makeover

I have been a wee bit obsessed with milk paint lately. Rustoleum came out with a line of milk paint and I think I have tried all the colors! I like some better than others. The Eclipse color is one of my favorites.

I bought this table at an auction a year or so ago. It isn't really old, but it was cute and I thought paint would give it a little oomph!

I pulled the drawer out and removed the knob from the drawer. I wasn't sure if I was going to reuse this drawer pull or use one from my stash. I set it aside.

I painted the base with two coats of the the Rustoleum Eclipse Milk Paint.

I also painted the drawer with two coats of the milk paint.

I used 60 grit sandpaper to distress the piece. One thing I love about milk paint is how easy it is to distress. It really helps give the piece an aged look. I coated the entire piece with Varathane Crystal Clear polyurethane in the satin finish.

I decided to use this white ceramic knob from my stash instead of the original knob. I think it gave it an older vibe.

I decided to line the drawer. I had this scrapbooking paper in my stash. I love the little bees on it. I measured the inside of the drawer and cut the paper to fit the size of the drawer.

I really loved the way it turned out. It pairs perfectly with vintage decor now. It sailed out the shop as soon as I put it in my booth!
