Farmhouse Hutch Makeover

So I finally tackled the inside of my farmhouse hutch makeover.
We got this beauty from Habitat for Humanity a few months back when 
we were staging our rent house to sale.

I decided to paint the hutch using Sweet Pickins Milk Paint in cream.
This was my first time using milk paint, 
and I must say I enjoyed the authentic chippiness it provided.
It looks as though it was originally 
white and has aged over time.

However, I would never buy milk paint and use a 
bonding primer to use this product as an opaque paint.

Unless, of course, there was a specific color I just couldn't live without...
I mean... in that case I would make the exception.

But I found the milk paint to be super thin and for me (could just be the light color) 
it did not provide good coverage.
I did two coats and I felt like it could have used more, 
but since I wanted the chippy look,
 it wasn't and issue.

Here's a shot of it before I took the putty knife over it and scraped all the chips off.

I'm debating on taking out the glass and installing chicken wire.. IDK?
But I have always loved that look and wanted to try it.
What do you think? Should I?

Have a great day friends!
