It needed help to live again and I was willing to revive it!
So we cleaned, sanded, repaired and then painted it with Old Fashioned Milk Paint, a gift from the company since I’m an OFMP Brand Blogger.
Basically it just means that I find amazing furniture with potential and paint it, blog about it, and you get to see how cool the OFMP is. It’s a pretty good deal for all three of us!

I mixed up a few paint colors (OFMP comes as a powder) and found that at different times of the day, depending on the lighting, it can look plum, brown or even gray.

Here it is lookin’ brown. I call this piece Pepper after my mom since she loved plum. I wish she was here to enjoy it!
I used a white to dry brush the details, and added Tung oil as a finish, also a gift from OFMP.
