how to paint a piece of furniture with milk paint

Hi all,
One quick comment before my question - I painted my living/dining this weekend. Used BM Aura for the first time - LOVED it, went on beautifully and was easy to work with. Will never use anything else for walls again!

Anyway - I have a small end table, stained wood, that I'd like to paint a maroon color. I heard painting furniture with milk paint is supposed to be good, nice finish, etc. Can someone help me understand how I would do this? Do I need to sand the piece first? What is involved?

Thanks for your help!

A few years ago I used Milk Paint to paint an unfinished bookcase .... I LOVE the finish it gives. I used the powered milk paint and had to put a protective clear finish on after.

But the *look* of milk paint can't be duplicated by *paint in a can* ... good luck on your project!

These folks have a guide that you can download.
