Going back to BOLD!

You know how I love this milk paint! I scored this great buffet and figured it would look beautiful dressed up in the beautiful ultra-marine color milk paint.I absolutely love the ultra blue and the turquoise color. They are stunning on old wood. 
        I layered a little of the turquoise just to give it some extra color. I love these two shades together.I use the jar to mix it well and then pour it into the container to paint. I love this paint from the Real Milk Paint Co. The colors are gorge!!
 Before the magic of tung oil. 

 I could not paint over this beautiful walnut.  I love the two-tone with the gold hardware. 

This had a slightly shiny surface so I did have to scuff it up.
Otherwise this milk paint would have chipped right off. 
You want to have a good balance of chippiness and distressing. 
This is staged on my patio. I think it goes beautifully with the mexican tile. 
Wouldn't this buffet look killer in a kitchen with a Spanish or Italian style theme??
 This was in pretty decent shape. I sanded down to bare wood and stained and sealed. 

                  I did line the drawer and also inside the cubbies.
