My Miss Mustardseed Table

Here's the corner of my living room with my table finished (sort of).  I'm still not happy with it.  I don't like the way it chipped.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I have more pieces to paint and I'll watch Marion's videos again.  One way or another, I'll master this.

See how it chipped.  Not really the effect I wanted.

Have a nice week!



  1. Was there wax or veneer on that table? Maybe it needed to be sanded down more first.

  2. Hi Kim - yes the table was stained and I didn't sand it but that is supposed to be the beauty of milk paint. You don't have to sand. I think my problem may have been the paint too thin. I was talking to Heidi at the store and she said she mixes it 50/50. That's what I'll try with my next piece! J
