What are you most proud of? This is the first time I have taken a thrift store piece and refinished it. I'm pleased that I ended up with a great chair for my front porch with so little expense. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The milk paint goes on differently than latex paint. You will need more than 1 coat and it dries to a chalky finish but looks very authentic. The dark brown Briwax is really dark. Test it out on some scrap wood first.
