    I have never used that paint before. I have done AS MMS and APC. If you have used any of these how does GF compare to them?

      Hi @Savvy Chic Michelle I have used AS and APC. I have not used MMS but have used Sweet Pickins. The GF Milk Paint is actually a high performance Acrylic Paint. It is smoother than the above mentioned and has a Satin finish opposed to a Matte finish. It doesn't always have to be sealed, dependent on the end use (although I always would recommend sealing and do personally). It is also rated for indoor and outdoor use. Hope that helps!

    It's beautiful. I am the first to admit I don't "love" the distressed look but this, lightly done distress is perfect and I wouldn't want it any other way. I love black furniture too.
