Kate Madison Furniture sells custom-made, handcrafted
furnishing for the home or office. A team of expert craftspeople build
armoires, tables, chairs, buffets, beds, and desks inspired by 1880s French
Country furniture. Each piece is finished by hand with quality milk paint
for a distressed, antiqued appearance. All our products are built by experienced
craftsmen in a 25 year-old woodworking workshop in Quebec, Canada. Each
item is made of 100% premium pine wood milled in Canada.
|About Milk Paint Finishes|
|At Kate Madison we finish each piece with the highest-quality Milk Paint.
Milk paint was used to color furniture and interiors of houses during
the colonial period but, its origins date back to Ancient Egypt.
Colonist created the durable mixture out of milk protein, quicklime, and
earth pigments to create brilliant, and fade-resistant finishes. It's
a technique that's used today in fine furniture making. Each color is
rich in depth and authentically reflect an "antique" or "old
Milk paint does not chip like regular paint. The texture and character is also quite beautiful, it has a flat, course texture, and transparent quality. Its shading gives it a custom quality that was common in furniture of centuries past. Because of the lasting-color, many 100 year-old antiques still have the same richness of color as when they were originally painted. Some believe that milk paint gets richer the longer it ages. We take care to finish your furniture because we believe that custom-made furniture of today is an antique of tomorrow.
