Kitchen Scale Buffet

I had to drive 45 minutes in rush hour traffic one way for this piece.
I just liked it and figured…why not?
This is a primitive style piece that came to me painted in a deep brick red.
I loved that it could be used as a buffet or media stand…it was a versatile piece.
Not to mention buffet and media stands are always sought out items.

So….I planned to paint this guy in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Kitchen  Scale.
I love that color but hadn’t used it in a long while for some reason.

First though….this piece was dirty.
It was sticky and gummy on the outside when I picked it up…like a million little kids touched it after eating gobfuls of candy.
I took some soap and water to it and first gave it a good cleaning.
I chose then to take some shellac and seal the entire piece up as I wanted to be certain that even after cleaning it up, no residue remained that may resist my milk paint.

When I was ready I painted him up with three coats of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Kitchen Scale with the Bonding Agent added.
As the paint dried, I noticed I was getting some very cool chipping and crazing on the buffet.
It was just a glorious and welcomed result.
Sometimes milk paint really nails it.

When he was fully dry, I distressed and sealed it in Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Wax and added some adorable knobs from D. Lawless Hardware…I love how they really POP on this piece!

How about all these chips and crazing?
Isn’t it fantastic?
I love how at spots you can see the deep red blow the painted surface
