Dumb question – So the point of the milk paint was to stain the top, correct?

I really like this – clean and simple. It will last your daughter for a long long time.

Nice job, is milk paint thin enough to spray or do would I need to thin it? I am making a Dutchman tool chest and want to use milk paint on it, to try it out.

How’d I miss this table? Wow, great looking piece. Love the simple arches of the aprons AND the tapered legs. Very well done.

Milk paint can be sprayed if thinned but milk is so user friendly I prefer just to brush on a couple of coats then burnish it out with a maroon scotch brite.

It’s a nice design and you’ve done a fine job on it.
