Kilim Inspired Coffee Table using Old Fashioned Milk Paint

Hello friends & helllllloooooo December!

Today I want to show you one of my favorite patterns that I've truly loved for a long while now!  The kilim pattern...  it has pulled me right in.  And, today I am showing you my kilim inspired coffee table using Old Fashioned Milk Paint.

As a brand blogger for Old Fashioned Milk Paint I did receive product to complete my project & to write about it.  But, as always all opinions are 100% my own and honest!



We have this gorgeous rug that we purchased from Pottery Barn in our living room which was my inspiration for this project!

With this in mind I choose my colors..  And, since it was going to be for our living room, I knew immediately I wanted to use Barn Red along with a few other colors for the pattern.  All of the colors are from Old Fashioned Milk Paint.

Here's what I was starting with...

I know some would say why are you painting this!?!  Well in short, I didn't like the color and it also had some pretty nasty scratches on the top.  I picked this heavy duty coffee table with amazing storage up at a local online auction.  It's been sitting and waiting for me to paint for a long while now.  
I did all of my prep work, cleaning, sanding, cleaning again...
