Solid Pine Buffet Table: Typewriter Milk Paint with White Wax

I found this amazing piece at a local charity shop.


I hemmed and hawed for a few days about color. We had too much blue at the shop, so that was out. I had picked up white wax a few weeks prior, but had been scared to use it because I'd heard it went on really heavy.

So I painted the base and drawers with Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint in Typewriter (black). I left the top natural but added a coat of Jacobean stain to bring out the scratches and damage...so it looked really distressed. Loved it.

Then I added white wax on one of the drawers and was instantly smitten. Here's why:






This is black paint with white wax over it...so yes, white wax goes on heavy, but I LOVE the effect it gives!

This looks great. I recently re-did a dresser and looking at this wish I would have left the top wooden. There's a picture of it on my blog:
