Buffalo Check Milkstool

Buffalo Check Milkstool

Updated: Apr 19

Buffalo check is so popular right now. You see it everywhere in farmhouse decor. This little ordinary milkstool needed a little lift. Buffalo check was just what we needed.

I don't remember where I picked up this particular piece. I didn't get a photo of it before we coated it with Waverly Chalk Paint in the Cashew color.

I cut a stencil with my Silhouette Cameo 3. Weeding (removing the vinyl in the area to be painted) this stencil took forever! This was definitely the part of the process that took the longest.



We applied the stencil to the top of the milkstool and trimmed it to size. We used painter's tape to mask off the sides of the milkstool.


We used Rustoleum Chalk Paint in the Pebble color to stencil the buffalo plaid design to the top of the piece. The entire piece was distressed and coated with Varathane Crystal Clear Satin Polyurethane.

Now this is a really cute piece which can be used for layering in a farmhouse decor setting. It looks great with this pottery pitcher on it sitting on top of a cabinet.
