With hosting a family meal on the horizon, I decided it was time to clean up my painting supplies and works-in-progress, so I took some time to finish up this chair over the weekend. Annnd promptly realized (while editing photos) that I missed a spot or two with the second coat. Oops. You might be able to spot it, but rest assured I will touch it up!

This chair is the match to the chair I chalked painted pink back in September. This particular chair had actually been stripped and was ready to re-stain or paint as I wished. I figured, why not take the opportunity to play with applying milk paint to raw wood again?

Here’s a glimpse at the before and after:

At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the strong wood grain showing through, but it’s rather grown on me.

I chose Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Layla’s Mint (actually a lot less minty than I expected, but still a cute green color) and applied two coats to this chair. I actually may still go back and add a little distressing to the chair. I think it needs just a lil’ something more?
