Mustard chippy milk paint book table

I loved the quirky shape of this little bookstand/library table.  It was in pretty rough (and very dirty) shape when I got a hold of it.


I gave it a good scrubbing with some white vinegar to prepare for painting.  I knew I wanted to embrace the primitive nature of this little table, so I picked up some Yellow Ochre Milk Paint from The Real Milk Paint Co. and went for it.  It turned out just how I wanted, perfectly chippy and awesome!


I’ve been collecting a bunch of cute, vintage, hardback books to bring down to the Vintage Market, including a some of these Readers Digest Condensed Books.  I think they look so nice on a bookshelf!  Aren’t the covers just fab too?



And (in my best Christ Traeger voice) this one is, literally, for the books. ;)


  1. This looks great! The perfect chippy finish.

  2. Love this color and love the chippy finish. I am sure this will go fast!

  3. I LOVE your blog, it has inspired me to start to search for pieces I can re do. Are there any tactics you follow when finding furniture to ensure they don't have bedbugs? Ive heard horror stories from others online.

  4. What a great project! I have just recently started painting furniture (and also blogging) myself and I am hooked! Still learning, though. I'd be interested to hear your feedback - check out my projects and my blog at Definitely open to any tips!!

  5. Love this! I just bought some pulls i'm going to put on my blog! Please check out my blog :) Home.Reno.Lover@wordpress
