Allowing other colors and some bare wood to show suggests an item that has passed through many hands. This three-color look suits worn wood pieces that have a less-than-perfect finish, or even cracks, like this pew.
Sand off any existing finish. Dry-brush on a coat of white milk paint. Let dry, then sand lightly. Wipe off dust with a rag.
