Turned around BAR with OFMP

I am so thrilled to be sharing my turned around bar with you all.  Last month I told you all how I’m now a brand blogger with The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co.  I revamped my kitchen table top with OFMP.  So this month I get to share with you all how this paint has inspired me to run around this bar.  It’s actually a bar that got handed down from my sister to my other sister.  Who mistakenly left it in her car when I asked her to borrow it.  She said sure take the car and made no mention to the bar that was taking up most the room in the car.  So I pulled it out and into my hall way.

Well this bar sat in my hallway for about a week{OK 3 days} before I decided it would fit in my living room.  So inside it came, and sat for another while.  Until OFMP came into the picture and I knew it was time to revamp my BAR.  So I turned it around to its backside and started to paint.  Black being my go to color that of coarse came first.  But surprisingly seeing it all black didn’t do nothing for me.  It needed more…



So I mixed up a batch of the white.  I do love that OFMP is a safe, non-toxic, all natural paints.  And as I added it inspiration hit.  Stripes going up and down, as well as diagonally.  Then I thought it needs more of a pop so I grabbed some gold and silver paint I had leftover.  Taped off my squares and went to work work work lol.


This turned around BAR is now open for business.  The business of serving me drinks.


I’m really loving how easy it is to mix up this paint.  You measure out the paint equal parts powder to warm water.  With my handy dandy little whisk I mix and after letting it sit about 10 minutes.  Paint is ready to go.


I added wheels and two shelves got some contact paper pops.  Viola cocktails anyone??

I’m really looking forward to working with this paint some more. Fun times ahead.
