Milk Paint Colors & Finishes
All of our furniture is painted with authentic milk paint and finished with a protective coat of tung oil. Stained tops are also topped with a final coat of tung oil. Tung oil provides plenty of protection for everyday use in most situations however for pieces that are being used as vanities we generally top coat the stain with a more protective varnish.
Milk Paint Colors
A two color finish… one as base coat that will show through the top coat in areas of wear, is an extra $60.00 for most pieces of furniture.

We offer five different stains.
Clearly the finish and distressing level is one of the most important aspects of our furniture. So it’s important that we understand exactly what you are looking for.
Distressing is much more of an art than a science and because each piece is made and finished by hand there will naturally be differences even between two pieces with the same level of distressing.
Basically we offer three different levels of distressing for you to choose from. They are: light, medium, and heavy. Below are a few pictures to give you an idea of the difference.
This piece is not heavily aged or distressed. Primarily just showing some wear at the corners and edges.
Shows more paint wear in the body of the piece with some nicks and dings.
Larger areas of worn away paint in the body of the piece with more dents and scratches.
