Painting Project

Last Sunday I took Hayley's white, little girl furniture and painted it with milk paint. I loved the process. It was easy to work with and is water based so clean up was a snap & is not harmful in anyway to the environment. So the black & red paint I used is green! I wish I had taken a before picture but you can probably picture the typical little girl white furniture with pink trim. That was what I started with.

I am pleased with the finished product. She is redoing her room in black & red. It looks very sleek! I painted a coat of red first and then several coats of black on top. I sanded several spots to show the red popping through then painted a couple of coats of top coat. In the first picture above, you can see a little red table to the right of the lingerie chest, that is the color red I painted under the black. I looked like I had war paint all over me.
