Looking for a different type of DIY project? Something that is unique?
Distressed, antiqued furniture is often pricy and requires a long, stressful search for the right piece. But, now you can create your own antiqued look at a much cheaper price! Real Milk Paint Company has a non-toxic, environmentally friendly DIY solution. I received some of their paint in a dark pink and blue shade and also some Real Milk Paint Natural Crackle. My husband made some shelves for my one of our rooms and used this paint. It is easy to use and gave the shelves an aged look in a very little amount of time!
For those who want to crackle a current piece of furniture, antique or flea market find, Dwayne Siever, founder of Real Milk Paint Company, has created a quick step by step video, which can be viewed here.
The Real Milk Paint Company provides environmentally friendly, non-toxic waxes, finishing products, mixing ingredients, creams and pastes, oils, and milk-based paints. All of its products are suitable for interior or exterior use, contain no VOCs and give off no odor during or after application.
