Milk Paint On A Mid Century Buffet

This was a custom paint job for a client of mine. She had this beautiful Mid Century buffet and wanted me to paint it matte black with distressed edges and also a darker stain on the door design. 

We kept the original hardware as is cause what's Mid Century if you don't have brass. 

I picked Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Typewriter to paint this piece because I love the matte finish, and to seal the paint I used clear wax from Annie Sloan.

The brass hardware added a touch of elegance to this piece.

This is what the buffet looked like before.

In order to do a darker stain on the design I had to first sand off all the original finish and get it down to bare wood. & when if your design has grooves like mine, this would be the time to bring out the Dremel Tool and use a fine grit sanding disc (make sure you have plenty of discs on hand cause you'll need them)

Overall I think this piece turned out so beautiful and because it's a Mid Century piece it will definitely stand the test of time.
