Milk Paint Success

I finally painted a major piece of furniture  using French Blue milk.  It is a sweet little oak buffet I found it at a barn sale.

Here is a picture of the buffet before.. That is before gluing and sanding.  I sanded the piece because the finish was coming off from having been stored in a barn for years.

This is after the first coat of milk paint which took all of 10 minutes to complete.

And here is the final result after the second coat and waxing with "Good old brown wax"  by the same company as our milk paint..The Real Milk Paint Company".  I think it turned out gorgeous and the wax gave it a nice finish while adding a lot of depth to the color.  I must say I am quite proud of myself and amazed at how easy it was.
