Milk Paint Makeover of a Nightstand

Over at Revived by Delia, Delia says that she’s had this nightstand waiting in a pile of furniture that needs makeover for so long she doesn’t even remember where it came from.  ”Judging by the coat of dirt it was covered in, it had been neglected for some time,” she notes.

Once the dust was cleared away, Delia realized that it was a sturdy little table that wasn’t in such bad shape.  She decided it was the perfect, low-risk piece of furniture on which to try a type of paint that was new to her:  Old Fashioned Milk Paint in Federal Blue.  Before applying the first coat of milk paint, Delia had planned to layer several colors of paint onto this nightstand.  When she realized that the milk paint was going to work some serious magic on this dresser, she realized that other colors weren’t necessary.  Instead, she used coconut oil to add some resist spots on the piece.  Don’t you love the way it turned out?
