This is my first time using milk paint. I have waited to find the perfect piece to give it a try. I knew once I found this unique Serving Tray Table, I wanted to use the milk paint.
This table was pretty with just the high gloss red finish, but I wanted to take it up a notch in the uniqueness department. I slightly sanded down the serving tray table. I really wanted the milk paint to flake off, so I decided not to use the griper primer.
I used Old Fashion Milk paint that is sold at my local hardware store. I really want to try Miss Mustard Seed paint, but I have to drive an hour to purchase some, so I passed for now.
I have to tell you I slightly freaked out at the amounts of paint that kept flaking off. Once the entire piece was dry I applied my favorite Polyacrylic from Minwax.
I love how the result turned out. The table now has the Modern Vintage feel. Speaking of Modern Vintage, this table sold from the shop.
