I thought it would be perfect for this hutch I got at a flea market for $4! I got it just as it started to rain and the flea market closed down.
I painted it with two coats of mustard yellow milk paint from The Old Fashioned Milk Co. It is their Safe Paint that is actually meant for walls so you do not have to add a bonding agent or worry about chipping.
I sanded the paint to smooth it and distressed it as well. I also changed the door knobs to ceramic ones, but left the drawer pulls.
The top was a little beat up, but I stripped it anyway and stained it with AS dark wax. It looks so soft with the yellow.
This milk paint is wonderful to work with. It already has so much depth in the paint, but when you distress you get even more. It also sticks to metal so I was able to paint right over the hinges.
