I have completed my first foray into the land of Milk Paint.  It was completely different than working with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  I did not opt to use a bonding agent on this piece so I allowed the paint to do what it wished to do!

The paint did not adhere in certain places as is typical with milk paint.  It definitely gave this piece a country/primitive look.  It is a pretty blue green color.  Great for a little holiday side table, in a bathroom or kitchen! I have one similar to it in my dining room where I have stashed my kid's hats and gloves! 
I finished the piece with tung oil to protect it and then two coats of clear wax.  Very solid little piece!
