Past Thymes Market refinished this metallic masterpiece using General Finishes Queenstown Gray Milk Paint topped with a custom mix of Dark Chocolate Milk Paint and Burnished Pearl Effects.

This sweet table was refinished by Nicole of Past Thymes Market using Driftwood Milk Paint as a base topped with Antique White and then Lamp Black Milk Paint glaze.

"I chose to glaze mine with an absolutely awesome product by General Finishes. They sell a clear glaze that you can alter to any color you want just by adding in a bit of paint.
