Say Hello to Artissimo Blue Buffet

It’s done!

As you may or may not remember (I know it’s been awhile!), I fell in love with this buffet table at an estate sale, and decided it was the perfect candidate for me to try milk paint with for the first time!

At first I was bent on making it be an emerald green color, but I had trouble finding a milk paint color that had that kind of tint, often looking too “grassy” or in the olive family.  Karl and I both like blues, so “Plan B” became blue.  I went with Miss Mustard Seed’s Artissimo Blue, and I adore it!  It even changes color a little in different lighting – sometimes it’s navy blue, other times I see almost a deep turquoise coming from it.

It was a learn-as-I-went process for a noob like me, so I’m really glad it came out so well in the end!

I’ll be going into the whole “how-to” process in tomorrow’s post, including some major failures and woes I came up against during the course of painting it.  So pop back over here Thursday to check out the whole story and avoid my mistakes! [edit: see the complete “how-to” for milk paint here]

(Buy Artissimo Here – fyi, if you do, I will receive a small commission.  I was not paid for using or reviewing MMS or given the milk paint from MMS, so this post, like always, is 100% my opinions.  No worries.  :)  Thanks!)
