Tansu Cabinet

To finish the cabinet, I started with a coat of General Finishes "Lamp Black" milk paint. To seal this layer, I applied a couple of coats of lacquer.

Once the sealing coat was dry, it gets covered with a generous layer of General Finishes "Tuscan Red" milk paint.

When the second coat of milk paint is dry, it's time to sand through the red, revealing the black. Some of this is done by hand and some with a random orbit sander (320 grit) When you're happy with the results, apply two coats of lacquer to finish the project.
