Milk Paint Chippy Goodness in Miss Mustard Seed Grainsack

I decided to use Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Grain Sack, to liven it up a bit.  

Make over an old oak sofa table with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

I am a dare devil and did not use the bonding agent.  I do live on the edge.  It chipped away a lot in some places.  To achieve the look that I wanted I simply I sanded the spots that I didn’t like and painted over them with a mixture that did include bonding agent.

    1. I love it..I did a coffee table the same way but it was really to big for the living room so I sold it. You did a great job. I love the distressed look.
