It’s Thrift store makeover time and I’ve got a DIY Milk Paint Wood Lamp to share with you this month. I found a $1 wood lamp and some pretty milk paint I found on clearance for $1.75 and I knew it was meant to be. Friends this milk color is making me so happy, it’s looks like a gorgeous, sea foam green.
Milk Paint Wood Lamp
Let’s check out what I started with. It had great shape. It was in great condition. And on dollar day I was able to grab it for a buck!
Then last week I came across my new favorite paint color on clearance and I knew this paint had to meet my $1 lamp.
Here’s what I used.

One coat of milk paint wasn’t enough. I let it dry for 1 hour and then gave it a second coat.
After the second coat dried I used the sanding block to scuff it up a bit. I scuff up the edges and the areas that protrude to get the look I’m wanting.
I just love how it turned out! This is my new favorite paint color!!!
