Sweet Pickins Milk Paint is such a beautiful paint to use to paint your furniture. It will give you a silky soft finish to your piece that is easily distressed, which makes using milk paint perfect if you're after a vintage or weathered look.
The paint can however act differently on each piece. The amount of "chipping" that you get all depends on how much preparation you’ve done prior to painting. If your piece is porous, if you’ve used a primer and if your surface has been previously painted or is glossy are all factors that determine your final finish.
