I thought she would look pretty in white.
Chippy white milk paint that is.
Can’t do better than that!
I painted her up in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Farmhouse White without the bonding agent added.
I was welcoming the chippies!
And boy, did I get the chippies!

I remember thinking oh my goodness, I think all this paint may chip off as I watched the paint  dry and flake.
Luckily, the chipping was perfect!
I sealed this piece in polycrylic as I needed to stop all the chipping an so it wouldn’t be too excessive.
I prefer finishing with wax or hemp oil, but sometimes it takes something stronger to stop the chipping.
I added some Hobby Lobby knobs I had in my stash.

    Not sure my reply went thru.. I am doing my cabinets with farmhouse white and will paint a light gray underneath. I want the chippy look. Should I use the bonding agent or not. I will lightly sand the cabinets before the gray is put on.
