Use Dark Chocolate Milk Paint by General Finishes to get the look of stain on surfaces that don’t stain well. This baby Jacobean Buffet had a Tulip Poplar top, which does not take stain well. I found a way around that using 2 coats of Dark Chocolate and 2 coats of High Performance Topcoat in Satin.

After living with my kitchen cabinets for over 30 years, it was time for an update! I added trim molding to the plain doors and drawers and gave everything 2 coats of General Finishes Dark Chocolate Milk Paint.

"This piece has been in my entry foyer for years but it has gotten dinged up and chipped and I was tired of the dark color so I decided it was time for a change!

Suzanne Bagheri - The Painted Drawer Collection gave her stairs a makeover with General Finishes Dark Chocolate Milk Paint.

It took three coats of the Dark Chocolate milk paint to fully cover the treads. After they dried, I touched up where the white risers met the dark brown treads. This was the difficult part because the caulk application...
