Materials: Hemnes coffee table, Milkpaint, brushes, electric sander
Description: I bought a long time ago this HEMNES coffee table from IKEA. I sanded them a little and got the paint to create a driftwood look. I had some Milkpaint left from an other project, and started to paint.
I didn’t use so much water for the darker paint and used it like chalk to get the dark spots on the wood.
In the end it looks like this, a nice beachy driftwood look!;)
