Short Buffet in Tricycle Red...

Here is my second attempt at using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint...
this time, in "Tricycle Red..."
 
Here is the buffet "before..."
 
 
I thought this piece would lend itself to chipping,
and boy, did it ever!
 
 
It chipped, and chipped, and chipped some more...
 
 
I really love what became of it.
 
 
The top veneer had some cracks and chips that were beyond repair
so I had Mark do his thing with the 12" planer.
The wood underneath had some variations in color that wouldn't sand out...
I think it just adds to the character of this truly unique piece...
 
 
 
I can honestly say I've been converted to milk paint.
It's so easy and fun to use!
 

This piece is now SOLD.
 
Have you had experience with milk paint?
I would love to know what you think!
Have an awesome day!

  5. I used MMS Typewriter for the first time this past week. I used it on a six panel door turned headboard. LOVED it! Totally converted!!!! I waxed it, but I am waiting on hemp oil to come in so that I can give that finish a try. The waxing is hard on my shoulders!!! Love the buffet in tricycle!

  6. I love the way this turned out. I was "converted" a few months back and recently had to use some latex paint on a project and complained up a storm about having to use latex instead of milk paint. I don't think I could ever use anything else.
