{Before and After} Antique Record Player

This is such a great find from goodwill, I was hoping it still worked but no such luck! I am sure with just a new part here or there it would be up and running!

I painted with Sweet Pickin's Milk Paint, with this piece I used the 2 colors Window Pane and my new favorite, Sweetie Jane! I stenciled on 45 RPM since that is the speed the record players go. Tell me what you think?

If you are in Utah, this is for sale! This would make a perfect side table, accent table, 
or entryway table in your home.

$160 for pick-up in West Bountiful
It measures 27 inches tall, 26.5 inches wide, and 18 inches deep

Round Traditional End Table

Okay this table is so fabulous! I love how unique it is, I have not seen anything like it! I used my new favorite paint, Sweet Pickins Milk Paint. I painted it white with an accent of gray on the table top. It has an upper and lower shelf for plenty of storage space for your decor items and measures 26 inches tall and 28 inches in diameter. I also used the funnest new technique to add a little glazing, it is called Aging Dust and I will post about this later in the week! It was then sealed with wax to give it protection from water rings and is so easy to clean! Please call or text with questions 801-864-3957

Antique Metal Trunk Makeover

I am beyond excited about this antique trunk transformation! Not only is it such a unique and unusual find, the transformation with a little paint is unbelievable. This by far has been one of the funnest projects, I am so excited to share it with you!

 Here is the trunk before picture. It is metal and wood with some leather straps still attached. I love the worn metal and wood, it gives this trunk a very unique character!


Now for the fun part, prepping, painting, sanding.... all the fun stuff!

I stumbled upon a new paint, at least new to me, and this is my first project using it. It is Sweet Pickin's Milk Paint. Which can be purchased through Etsy here!



Milk paint has been around for years, this is just my first time trying it out. It is made out of milk protein and is a completely green paint, 100% VOC free. It comes in powder form that you mix yourself in water. My favorite part about milk paint is the time I cut down with prepping. There is not as much prep time as with Latex or Lacquer paint. Now with that being said, Milk paint is very unpredictable and rarely will you get the same look on furniture pieces. It makes for some unique and fabulous furniture pieces if you ask me!

I started out by spraying the entire trunk with Shellac, this acts as a bond for the milk paint! Once that is dry it is time for paint. I just buy the dollar store bristle brushes to use with milk paint, I think being able to see some brush marks just add to the antique look! I used the 2 colors Creamy and Sunflower for this trunk! What do you think???
