When clients want an antique painted look on trim and built-ins, you can’t do better than real milk paint. Homestead House is my go-to source for the stuff. It comes as a powder that you mix with water and I use a big old 1-1/2” spade bit in a drill to stir things up. For renovation applications over an existing finish they sell a bonding agent that you add to the water to make the paint stick to old varnish. Homestead House milk paint really excels when you want to create a distressed look. It sands well, so it’s easy to rub through and make zones of wear on corners and edges.
