Transforming this vintage 1960 Ethan Allen bench into a rustic bench for my family room. This gorgeous piece stands out with this earth friendly paint. It's a transformation you must see.
I chose the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co color in mustard, the extra bond, and the Daddy Van's unscented beeswax furniture polish. I have a love for golden colors and tend to lean towards the warm yellow.
For the first batch, I mixed equal part color and water (8 tablespoon of color and water) and mixed well. I let the mixed paint sit for 15 min and ran it through a strainer. Next I added 4 tablespoons of extra bond into the paint and stirred well.
After three coats, I am getting some cracking goodness and once the milk paint was dried I gently gave this 1960 Vintage Ethan Allen Bench a light sanding.
Materials I used for this project:
- Old Fashion Milk paint (OFMP company)
- Sanding blocks, wax paste
