Chippy White Milk Painted Potting Bench5:30:00 AM
The before is an Ethan Allen hutch in pretty bad shape.
I'm going to make it beautiful using Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Ironstone.
I gave the top of the hutch 2 coats of milk paint then watched the magic happen...
the chipping began as soon as the paint began to dry.
When the paint was dry and the first chips began to fall I gave the entire piece a sanding with a fine grit sandpaper.
I distressed the hutch on the edges and around the knobs where wear and tear would naturally occur.
Finally I coated the hutch with Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat to protect it and to stop anymore chipping.
This hutch is a great size and has a beautiful farmhouse look that is the perfect neutral color.
I didn't stop there... I decided this piece needed to be a potting bench so I added some accessories.
First I added a steel towel bar with clips to hold seed packets.
Then a galvanized steel bin for seeds and tools.
The whole piece came together when I painted and distressed the word GARDEN at the top of the piece.
I think my favorite things to make are potting benches... see below for links to a few more of my favorites.
