Milk Painted Empire Dresser August 5, 2014
Mable, is this week’s milk paint “masterpiece”. I use the term masterpiece lightly, because my milk paint projects are never perfect. Milk paint has its quirks. Heck, so do I! But I love it just the same.
I thought “Mable” was a fitting name for this old girl, because like the Empire dressers I’ve known, have all been sturdy, yet stylish.
In fact, the very first piece I ever painted with milk paint, was an Empire dresser, which I can’t find a picture of. Figures!
Back to Mable, she may look serious and all business, but she’s got a surprise inside!
New! Each Thursday, we’ll be opening the shop’s studio to any of you who have taken a furniture painting class at The Treasured Home and need a little Paint Therapy! Starting August 7th, and every Thursday, there after, until the end of time, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., you’ll be able to drop in, for an hour or four, with a small piece of furniture, to paint! For $25.00/hour, our complete line of paints and waxes will be at your finger tips and we’ll be on hand, should you need assistance! This is not a class, but a loosely structured “support group”! (Be sure to bring your own brush, or buy one at the store.)
P.S: I attempted to link up to Savvy Southern Style’s Wow Us Wednesday!
