Hi Friends, welcome to the first in our series of “Paint Tips From the Front Porch” we will be sharing some paint tips and how to’s as I come across something I think you may like, recurring questions or some little behind the scenes pro furniture painting and DIY “paint tips”
Today’s simple paint tip was a biggie for me. Even though its a small one.
How to make the cut raw edges on reclaimed wood look old to match the reclaimed wood?
Ok, that was a mouth full. Know what I mean though?
I use old barnyard or reclaimed wood ALL the time for projects. But when
I cut it down to size Mr FPM cuts it down to size, for signs or walls etc, there is always a raw edge that bugs me.
Here’s the solution…use 100% All Natural Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint as a stain on the edge!
This is SO easy and quick it was kinda like a “duh” moment for me.
Mix Trophy for grey wood, or Curio for brown wood (or both to get a dirty grey), just mix a little thinner than you would for regular milk paint.
And just apply the milk paint stain to the edge.
Hope this tip helps you out!
Thanks for popping in.
