Spice Milk Painted Table for Wabi Sabi

This week I had the privilege of hand painting a table for a fibre store in Ottawa's Hintonburg area called Wabi Sabi.

They have a number of these Ikea tables as display tables in the store. The perfect candidate and canvas for a painted furniture makeover.

My client choose the perfect fall colour of Homestead House Milk Paint called "Spice". Its a reddish-orange colour and the closest colour HH Milk Paint has to an orange. A bold colour was exactly what this table was calling for.

The milk paint needed some serious convincing to adhere to the table.  I had to use all of my milk paint product knowledge for this one. It chipped away in the perfect places and with some light distressing on the edges it turned out amazing. I love this colour.

You can go and see the finished product at Wabi Sabi. They graciously allowed me to put up a sign and leave some business cards on the table.  And they have a great classroom/studio space in the store which is where I will hold my Milk Painting Classes. Now on to the next project!
