5 Uses For Milk Paint | Fresh Home Ideas
Milk paint is gorgeous, it gives a mellow, aged feel to it and is perfect for just about any interior style (though it works particularly well if you’re into the beachy or shabby chic look!) There are 5 tutorials here - how to paint a table, planters, wood floorboards, glass panels and my favourite, pavers! I would never have thought to paint pavers with whitewash. I would love to do my floorboards in whitewash, but I wouldn’t love to do all the prep work that comes with it!

Nail Head Embellished Dresser | Fresh Home Ideas
Once in a while I’ll come across a DIY that is an amazing combination of easy/cheap and gorgeous that I have to post it straight away! The front of this dresser is decorated with nail heads. You know, those cheap things you can get from the hard ware store! I love the words written as well, though if you don’t share with someone you could write other things - lovelies, delicates & delightfuls for example?!
