Breathe new life into an old piece of furniture with a coat of paint.
Got an old unloved or unattractive piece of furniture lying around the house or have you picked up a bargain at a flea market or a garage sale in desperate need of a coat of paint and a fresh, new look?
Then pick up a can of Porter's Milk Paint which is a traditionally made paint first used by the Shakers. Milk Paint has a rustic, chalky appearance that delivers beachside style, instantly softening and ageing the look of new furniture and complimenting old. It is made from milk by-products and produces subtle, mellow colours. Choose a colour with references to the sea - ocean blues, turquoise, aqua, chalky white or seafoam.
For added authenticity add a coat Porter's Crackle Medium to create an instant antique or aged feel. Inspired by the time worn charm of provincial antique furniture and artifacts, Crackle Medium marks any painted surface with the gentle hand of age.
