These are my faves, with the curved front and original Chippendale hardware, it’s hard to do better. We did a coat of Miss Mustard Seed’s Tough Coat to stop any bleed through that may pop up. Tough Coat is a newer addition to the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line. It can be used as a sealer as well as a primer. We recommend Tough Coat for pieces requiring water cleanup (kitchen table) or cabinets exposed to lots of moisture (bathroom).
Immediately after the Tough Coat was dry (30 minutes or so), we applied two coats of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Grain Sack with bonding agent mixed in. We add bonding agent to most of the pieces we paint because our customers seem to like the lightly distressed edge look more than the chippy look. We then finished with our custom mix of Furniture and Antiquing waxes.
And, this piece came with a piece of custom pre-cut glass that we are selling along with it. The glass alone is probably well over $150! It is still available.
