Milk Painting

I had a houseguest this weekend.  Melanie and I went to the lake, rode around in our Jeeps, to the drive-in to watch zombie and superhero movies and finished our busy weekend with a milk painting class at Absolute Vintage Boutique.  It's a shop packed full of old stuff made new again and they have painting classes on the outdoor patio.  With the right mixutre of the retro milk paint, we painted old, outdated chairs with a base coat, then a second coat of a different color and then sanded until the base coat came through.  I have intentions to repaint some bedroom furniture like I did my chair but all that sanding (even with electric sanders) plum wore me out.  I may just have to tackle one piece of furniture at a time.
