Step 1: Prepare and Prime
Step 2: Apply the Milk Paint
Step 3: Antique It
Use mineral spirits to remove wax, dirt and grime. Fill cracks and holes with wood putty, then lightly sand. Apply a coat
of tinted sealer; it's what you'll see once you "rub through" the top coat.
Mix the milk paint per the manufacturer's instructions. Apply the first coat; then, when dry, lightly sand to remove "fuzz."
Apply second coat.
Lightly sand the surface with 180-grit sandpaper to get the desired distressed look. Remove dust with tack cloth. Apply
a coat of clear, water-based finish for extra durability
