Swirls, Turns and Chippy Goodness


I have been enjoying summer and neglecting my blog, but I hope to change that.  Sitting in front of my computer has just not appealed to me lately, but I have been using my paintbrush a lot! 

Awhile ago I found a really neat table with great lines that just needed a bit of TLC. 
Before: 

The table has great turned legs and wonderful details, but the wood was in pretty bad shape. 
I gave the top a good sanding with my electric sander and then sealed it with AS dark wax/Linseed Oil.
The top ended up beautiful! 


I decided I wanted the table to have a chippy look, so I mixed up some Milk Paint from Miss Mustard Seed in Ironstone.  

I gave the table a couple of coats of MMS milk paint and then as it dried watched the chippy magic happen. 


I scraped the flakes off and sealed the table with clear carnauba wax. 


Love this chippy table now! 


LOVE this detail!  



More gorgeous details! 




Swirls and Turns of beauty on the legs!
