Today’s reader feature is an absolutely gorgeous Milk Paint Dresser that was submitted by Annie Spackman! She found this dresser on Craigslist for just $50! Even though it was in horrible shape when she got it, she had a vision. She knew with a little love, it could be a beautiful piece once again!
Here are the steps that she took to transform her vintage furniture piece:
Step 1: The dresser was cleaned with Mineral Spirits
Step 2: She painted the dresser with Miss Mustard Seed’s (MMS) Milk Paint in Lucketts Green
Step 3: The dresser was distressed with sand paper, but a putty knife can also be used
Step 4: She Transferred the Graphic to the top of the dresser using a Heat Transfer Tool. (The graphic used was the Clothing Ad with Oval Frame) Make sure you reverse your image first, if you are use this tool!
Step 5: Finally, she sealed it with Annie Sloan Clear Wax.
Thank you so much for submitting your project Annie, this is honestly one of the most beautiful pieces I have seen!
