{DIY} Milk Paint Hutch

Hello again!

This weekend is the sale at Restoration Emporium.  But I am stuck at home with a sore throat and a sick baby.  It’s killing me to not be there… So I decided I would show you one of the pieces I just finished for the sale.

This was a piece I picked up at a garage sale.


I decided to do something a little different then I normally do.. So I purchased some Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Ironstone.  I wanted the paint to chip on this piece so I felt that milk paint would be the right choice.  After some paint & wrestling with some chicken wire, here she is!:


Such a fresh and clean look- while still shabby & chippy. Love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thank you!
      No ma’am.. That’s the beauty of milk paint! It adheres to almost anything- and if for some reason it doesn’t adhere you can use miss mustard seeds bonding agent.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Absolutely beautiful! I am dying to get my hands on some milk paint 🙂 how much milk paint did it take to finish this piece?

    1. Thank you Hillary!
      With my box of Ironstone Milk Paint I was able to complete two coats on this hutch and two coats on a medium sized cabinets. I am still experimenting with the consistancy and mixing of the paint. I think if mixed correctly I could have gotten further with the paint. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Traci, nice job and just so you know Ironstone is very hot right now. I’m with Redposie a retailer for the Miss Mustard Seed Milk and we can’t seem to keep it in stock lately everybody wants Ironstone. Ironstone just goes with any decor.

    1. Thank you Michelle!
      I had planned on painting the inside of the hutch as well- but once i finished the outside I fell in love with the contrast like you! Happy accident 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Looks amazing! I just took a class with her milk paint, wondering did you use the bonding agent? I have a set of chairs but I’m not certain how much chipping I want…
    And I will be happily following you!

    1. I actually have not used her bonding agent yet. I have used her Milk Paint on three projects so far and have not seemed to need it! I will be posting a small cabinet soon..Keep an eye out and see if you like the amount of chipping it has.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. WOW!! It’s fabulous. I don’t have a vehicle that can transport such a large piece, nor a good place to work on it. The garage would be my best choice but it’s pretty cold here right now (Missouri). I’m still learning. I’ve done a table a chair and painted the base of my dining room table. It’s fun but a lot of work too… Your project is so beautiful!!
