Chippy Milk Paint Makeover ~ A French Pair

It’s “What’s YOUR Prodigal Piece?” time!! This is a fun time for me because I get to check out what other artists are up to, and have the opportunity to introduce you to some wonderful people.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to Misty of The Cedar Shake Cape. Misty does miraculous things with a paint brush and get’s her craft on too.

You know I have a soft spot for French furniture, and was a bit jealous that she scored this sweet side table pair for $30 at a local thrift store. SCORE!

Yes, they are brown, yes, they are sad, and yes, they are screaming, “Help us!!”. Those details were just dying to be drawn out, don’t you think?
Misty choose to use Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint on this sweet pair, and I love her honest review. She didn’t intend to give this pair a chippy look, but her mistake turned into a gorgeous finish.
