Sometimes I wonder if my house is more of a storage unit than a home. So in an effort to resuscitate my home, I’ve decided to declutter, donate, and sell most of what I deem unnecessary for everyday living and enjoyment. One of these items that has been stored in my home is an old, wooden sewing table. My husband and I found it on the side of the road with a “free” sign on it...three years ago! Since then, it has been sitting in various homes and places in my home waiting to be loved or reintroduced back into society.
Finally, this week in a moment of pure motivation, I decided to give this worn out piece a facelift so I can ultimately get it out of my house and get a little cash. Although, you may not have a piece quite like this in your home, the process for painting whatever furniture piece you may have is essentially the same. So whether your painting for keeps or for your side hustle, here are some basic steps for how to paint furniture specifically using General Finishes Milk Paint.
