Authentic French, American and Country antiques were finished in milk paint for the brilliant colors which enrich over time. The paint's texture and character is quite beautiful—it has a flat, coarse, and transparent quality. Kate Madison Furniture is finished in those time-tested milk-paints and low-VOC stains. Our custom mixed colors give our pieces a high-quality finish that was common in furniture of centuries past. We take special care when finishing furniture because we believe that our furniture today is an antique of tomorrow.
