Farmhouse Chairs

I recently scored some cute farmhouse chairs that were screaming to be chippy white.  Typically, I would go straight for milk paint to achieve this finish but, nope, not this time...latex.

See, I love milk paint but sometimes I want more control over the chipping and crackling.  If you’ve used milk paint then you know that isn’t always possible. I’ve started experimenting with different techniques that will give me the look of milk paint but with more control.  I’m really happy with the results this technique gave me but want to experiment a little more to perfect it.  {more specifics to come, promise

  4. Cute chairs! I haven't tried milk paint yet. I typically use either latex or chalk paint and then sand!

  6. So, you promised "more to come." I'm also curious as to how you did this. It looks like Vaseline...?
