Milk Paint

"I love revealing custom work! How amazing did this hutch turn out!

"Painted in General Finishes Milk Paint in the color Driftwood - always a beautiful choice! I polished up the hardware and lined the back in some adorable bird themed wallpaper." - Kristin's Krazy Garage

We adore this buffet by Vicki of Absolutely Shabbulous by Vicki Clifton. This piece was first painted with a white undercoat, Persian Blue Milk Paint over the top and distressed.

"This antique beauty has a rustic, warm feel. The drawer fronts were stripped of their veneer to reveal the beautiful solid wood underneath and stained with General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The top was sanded and stained to show the walnut grain. General Finishes Milk Paint in Lamp Black enhances the sides and front casing. 5 dovetailed, solid wood drawers, for all your storage needs. The original hardware was enhanced with Spanish copper gilding wax. This is a very unique and...

"Look closely... this is actually the largest coffee table I have EVER seen! Nearly 4ft across, it was a challenge to work with but we're super pleased with the results!

It is currently loving it's life serving coffee and tea to guests but would also love to grace your living area or bedroom in style.

"I really enjoyed using General Finishes Milk Paint on this china cabinet. Used Snow White on the inside and then did a blending on the outside with Snow White, Seagull Gray, and a mix of Seagull and black. Once the blending was complete I went over all of the lines and details with antique glaze from Valspar and the hardware was updated in silver Rub N Buff. The milk paint was really easy and smooth to use and the finish came out perfect." - Red Tulip Design

"The most adorable farmhouse shabby antique east lake settee bench! Great piece to use in any room! Very rare size settee loaded with details and love that scalloped top. Completely redone, hand painted in Antique White Milk Paint by me and reupholstered by my mom in this super cute red and white plaid with lace like trim. A truly one of a kind piece! She is over 100 years old and still solid as a rock!" - Shabby Accent Living    

"When I found this octagonal table it had a factory finish dark stain and an odd amount of knobs along the apron/skirt. I had a vision of it in a light gray color, so I picked "Seagull Gray" by General Finishes. 

"Every store I go into lately is filled with bright and colorful boho chic decor! I was inspired to search my inventory and find a piece I could transform using these beautiful colors I was seeing. This detailed solid wood end table stood out to me right away as the perfect candidate. I first painted this table in General Finishes Patina Green and followed with a color wash in Coral Crush, a beautiful combination with the original hardware painted gold. Completely sealed with High Performance...

"Anybody have spring on the mind? We sure do! So we chose the perfect spring color for this credenza. We went with Emerald Milk Paint with a Java Gel Stain top." - Belle Maison

"This beautiful girl is 100% GF products! Linen Milk Paint and a custom blend of gel stains... Black, Nutmeg and Antique Walnut. And of course HPTC in Satin to protect her new finish. Why not just use Java for a deep rich color? Because these older veneers love to pull red and that’s not the look I designed for my client. 
  "The drawers, doors and top were sanded bare prior to staining. A quick wipe of mineral spirits was also done to help my gel stain glide on more evenly. (I learned...
