Before & After Thrift Store Headboard redo with The Primitive Life Organic Milk Paint!

I was lucky enough to find this King Sized headboard at the thrift store for $30! I used The Primitive Life Organic Milk Paint in "Skillet" and transformed it into this picture perfect headboard for our new bedroom!

It was very simple! First I cleaned the headboard with warm soap and water and a sponge, just to get any germs off, I sprayed with Lysol...then lightly sanded it with medium sandpaper,wiped it down and painted. It took about 15 minutes to paint. After I let it dry for a couple of hours, I sanded it lightly in areas where I wanted it to look "distressed". That's it! Total time about 3 hours. If I can do it, anyone can!

Did You Know??

This is the EASIEST way to mix The Primitive Life Milk Paint!
Yes! Just take an empty, lidded jar ( Mayonaise, Spaghettei Sauce, Pickles...whatever!)
Measure out your milk paint powder, add water to desired consistency , replace the lid and SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE!!
No mess, stores unused paint and recycles your jars!

Our New Color Sample Boards!

Some examples of The Primitive Life Milk Paint projects that some happy painters have shared with us!
Cute as a button!

What a great beachy, coastal look!

You would think that this prim piece was right out of the barn!!
I am amazed at the different finishes this paint can acquire! These primitive pantry boxes look amazing!
