|MMSMP try #2|
I've decided I'm not going to go buy a blender to dedicate to painting, so I found this blog with her great advice of using a mason jar to mix (easy peasy, and mostly- not completely smooth).
The paint came on much smoother, and after it dried, I sanded the legs and rims of the top and shelf for a really heavily distressed look. Not my usual thing, but it had so many lovely colours poking out that I just fell in love!
Waxed and done!
I think of this table as a success! Its relatively smooth and intentionally distressed, so a success....
However the shelf unit which I painted TWICE, once with bonding agent, just didn't stick! Even tho I gave it a good sanding! No photos, because it just makes me cry 8(
Then, everything I painted on just chipped right off...I may as well have painted it with yogurt!!
I love Marian from MMS, and I LOVE the colours of her paint, but I won't buy this paint any more. I've got a couple of hundred bucks of it as I bought the sampler kit (with waxes, hemp oil, etc...), so I will use it until its finished, but I will have to go back to chalk paint (sorry Marian)! I love chalk paint...no sanding, no priming, great colours, sands smooth as silk, waxes beautifully!
I really wanted to love MMSMP, as I read about all of the great projects people have painted with it, but I honestly don't have the time to keep painting, sanding, crying, etc...
I sold my table and chair set at my booth!!! Yippee!!!! I loved that set, and everyone who saw it loved it but it just sat there for the last 6 weeks...
Now I have room to take something else!
Have a great day!

Maybe you should consider trying The Old Fashioned Milk Paint company... you can order it through Lee Valley. I find it mixes up a lot nicer and smoother.ReplyDelete
Actually the table is chippy and cute. This is such a wonderful and inspiring post. I would love it if you would share this post at our WIW linky party. Hope you can join us today!ReplyDelete
