The softly weathered, two-toned drawers of this tall bureau have a well-used charm found in many antiques. Yet the bureau
is an inexpensive pine model purchased at an unfinished-furniture store. The character comes from layers of milk paint that
have been sanded and then sealed with a final layer of beeswax (an alternative to beeswax is any paste floor wax). This paint-and-finishing
technique has been used for many centuries.
