Stenciled Milk Painted Children's Furniture
I bought some amazing wooden children's chair at a yard sale. They have been great canvases for my experimentation with milk paint.
I painted one chair a vibrant red. (The color is Tricycle from Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint). But I decided it needed a little something more. So, I cut a stencil out of vinyl and added a white tricycle silhouette to the chair. I love the look.
My 5-year-old is a big dinosaur fan, and I wanted to paint a chair for his room. I used an old Sinclair Oil advertising sign as my inspiration. I painted the chair in Tavern Green milk paint, then stenciled a dinosaur image in white on the seat and added his name in red on the back.
I did a more faithful rendering of the Sinclair Oil dinosaur on a wooden stool I found at a garage sale. I made a stencil of the logo and painted it red and white. I just love how the milk paint chips off in places, giving these pieces an authentic aged look.
