I'm not an expert when it comes to finishes or paint techniques if you know what I mean. Very unfamiliar with milk paint, I thought I'd give it a try. So, here it is the final table in ironstone milk paint from Miss Mustard Seed. I do have to say Marian's videos on you tube are spot on if you want to try her products. Easy to use with great instructions on how to apply. This piece was my practice piece and I do recommend if you've never tried milk paint before to practice before hand. The side table has two coats milk paint to get that chippy look. You can also apply a bonding agent to your paint to get a less chippy effect. Here's where next time depending on the piece I might add this solution. Two coats of Miss Mustard seed wax and it's finished. I'm not 100% certain I like the bottom shelf with all that chippy effect. Let's say I'm happy that I was brave enough to try something new without the help of my hubby for once. To me, that's all that really matters. Oh, before I forget thanks again Marian@ Miss Mustard Seed for your inspiration. Here's to many more milk paint projects to come from me in the future...xo Liz
