Wax is generally used as a finish coat for milk paint and while I'm a fan of the paint, I'm not a big fan of wax. I'm all about the hardest, most durable, long term finish and opted to use oil based poly instead. (I know there are many devoted wax users out there - this is just my preference).
Instead of wax, I went with this oil based poly - hard, water proof and very durable.
The directions say this product is for spraying or brushing, but I reeeally like wiping it on.
Dip a lint free rag in the can and wipe away.

Remember the table I refinished for 4 men and a lady last year? (Still my most difficult undertaking to date! I can't tell you how many break downs Zac had to endure during that one :/). I used the same wipe on method with amazing results and the same product, only tinted. (I went over making your own DIY poly-stain here).
And the finished dresser after two thin coats of poly...
Tomorrow, I'll go over how I finished the green milk paint dresser!
PS Did I offend any of you devout wax users out there? :)
