I'm not sure when the house will get its lick of white paint. But enough was enough. The fake tan brown door had to go. In the spirit of thriftiness and making do, I remembered a bag of milk paint I bought a few years back with good intentions to paint some baby furniture. Done. The decision made for me.
This gorgeous paint comes as a powder that you mix with water. Made from milk by products, it creates a lovely chalky finish and is non toxic. BUT, is it suitable for north facing exterior doors? Err no. No matter, the brown has gone, it looks good for now and it will be interesting to see how it weathers.
Thanks to Mabel, who bless her, patiently waited for liver treats while I took this shot.
