I found the cutest little cabinet at a garage sale. The lady said she had started painting it, and gave up. I thought it was perfect for a Milk Paint project. It is a very bright pink and the shutter areas are painted white.
I started painting it with the color California Mud, by CC Caldwell's Paint. The thing I really LOVE about the Milk Paint is the no prep!!! If you are like me and just likes to start painting, then Milk Paint will be your best buddy.
I put two coats of paint on it. I have been looking for Miss Mustard Seed products here in the Oklahoma City area, and haven't come up with anyone that is carrying it yet. I had been watching her videos about waxing the product when you are finished. This cabinet was a perfect piece to try the wax technique on. I just used some Johnson's Paste Wax. Seems to work very well. I really like the way it finishes off a piece.
Here is a final picture of the little cabinet. I went to Hobby Lobby and found some really cute and blingy pulls for it. Think it just adds so much to the otherwise very simple piece of furniture.
I think I am going to take it home and see if I can find a special place for it. :)
Have a great weekend. :)
