Old Fashioned milk paint vanity, mirror and stool


I loved the color combination of Old Fashioned Milk Paint light cream and snow white milk paint I used on this quilt rack so much I made it again for this sweet vanity, mirror and stool set, But this time I came up with a recipe and made it creamier. 3:1 Light cream: snow white


here are the original pieces


the vanity stool was in pieces, the dowels broken off in the sides required drilling out and all new ones to glue it all back together


Once the pieces were all repaired, scrubbed well and dry it was time to start painting with the Old Fashioned Milk Paint creamy white milk paint. Two coats went on all the pieces followed by distressing. To add depth and character I chose Daddy Van's new dark was in Café noir. I love this color as it truly is a dark drown.



and it adds excellent aging details to the milk paint


on the mirror I wet distressed the raised detailing to reveal the original gold
