Milk Paint

"My mom came to visit me a couple weeks ago and told me she needed a coffee bar, so of course we went to my basement and “shopped” through my inventory.

The top was sanded bare and stained with Espresso Water Based Stain from General Finishes, then sealed with an oil based poly for extra protection in the kitchen. The bottom was painted in layers starting with Snow White, followed...

"The twins are done! Gorgeous and glamorous in gray and gold with a splash of rustic goodness. This is a custom gray using General Finishes Lamp Black and Antique White. It’s rich, warm and creamy. The gold details were done using Liquid Leaf by Plaid Crafts. I added a little glaze in Van Dyke Brown by General Finishes to add some dimension and you know I had to distress a curve here and an edge there! I just love the glamour with a twist of rustic." - Newbac Designs
