Drop Leaf Table With MMSMP Makeover


After one epic fail, I'm finally happy with the results of my drop leaf table. My first shot as using Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint! I love how a little paint transformed this $20 Craigslist find into a beauty!
Since I was looking for the "chippy" effect, I decided not to buy the bonding agent... and that was a mistake. After a second coat that resulted in chippy-chaos, I started over, added the bonding

    Can you tell me what MMS is? I assume ASCP is chalk pain. How do you decide with type to use for a project like this? Also, what does hemp oil do?

      @Krosiepowers Thank you for all the helpful information. I'm still in the "thinking about it" stage, still gathering information. But someday I hope to tackle an old table my mom gave me. Part of me is afraid of ruining it, though, so it's hard to get started.
