Well, this my first venture into the world of ‘blogging’, and I must admit to being slightly scared! Writing about what I do doesn’t come naturally, but in the last ten years or so, I have received more and more interest the Old Fashioned Milk Paint that I sell in my shop, The Blueberry Store, from an increasingly wide range of sources.
From a purely personal point of view, I LOVE this product, and have spent a great deal of time playing with it in my own furniture makeover projects over the years, as well as making pieces for the Blueberry Store. But recently its popularity has surged, along with the increasing interest in restoring or ‘upcycling’ (horrible word!!) furniture, whether it’s your own or something found at a flea market, or in a charity shop. But there is also a growing interest among crafters, woodworkers and artists, as this fantastic paint has so many different applications. But there is a lot of confusion out there. So, as I have now made the tough decision to close my ‘bricks & mortar’ store and focus purely on my online business, hopefully I will now have time to share some of my own experiences with milk paint, from the past and as they happen!
