DIY Refinishing Furniture Using Milk Paint

Have you ever played around with milk paint? I’ve used it a few times before and I’ve got to tell you, I’m officially hooked. It’s so easy to work play with. Here’s an easy DIY project that gives new life to old furniture, like this coffee table.

Time for Ideas

It’s never too early to start thinking about the finishing touches, right? But honestly, we need to start ordering what we want, so we need to decide on styles we like. We’ve picked out most of our tile, so that’s all taken care of. The hardware is taking its cues from the tile color. For the bathroom entrance, I’m in charge. For all things shower, Joe’s the man.
