I had been wanting to do this for some time and finally took the plunge last week.
I used Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Typewriter and just quickly brushed it on.
I was truly hoping it would start peeling and I even had used some Vaseline in places so it would help resist.
It did peel pretty good here, but most of the bench got a good sanding.
After all the sanding was done I rubbed the Hemp Oil on all over. I love using the oil. It is so easy.
I am happy with the way it turned out. It really looks like an antique with wear from many years of use.
You can see the before here of the last time I painted it. I liked that, too, but was ready to see it dressed in black.
