"I have been trying to come up with a way to paint a chair brown without it looking flat. I have a beautiful mahogany railing in my house that served as my inspiration. I actually had to make some pieces to complete the rail and I didn't have any mahogany so I used poplar and my milk paint to make a solid approximation."As you can see in his picture above, he has done a credible job. If you're interested, Galbert posted the exact proportions and colors he used.
