Milk Paint Video Tutorials!


I just uploaded my first three video tutorials on working with my Milk Paint!  The milk paint won’t be widely available until August 2012, but I wanted to start putting the videos out there to answer some questions about Milk Paint and to show what kind of tutorials will be available.  Enjoy!

    I would love to try your Milk paint… But I’m not sure how it will turn out on the piece I want painted. I have an Ethan Allen cherry dresser that has a very shinny top. Do you have any suggestions on prep I would need to do? I tend to chicken out on the tops and leave them the orig finish.

  2. I would love to see a piece done in milk paint that has no distressing. Or am I the only one out there who isn’t too keen on distressing(?) Can it be used for a smooth, non-distressed look?

    I think the idea of milk paint is great! After all, it was used over a hundred years ago. Of course, the formulation is probably quite different than then :-)

    Can’t wait to see more tutorials! Great job MMS :-)

      Yes, you can achieve a beautiful, smooth finish without the chipping or distressing. I just love the distressing. I actually did a piece without any for my mom, so I’ll snap a picture of that next time I’m at her house.

    I would like to try milk paint on a bookcase that has previously been painted in a semi-gloss latex. Would I have to strip it before using the milk paint or could I paint right over top of the semi-gloss? I’m so excited to try it!


  4. Thank you for these awesome tutorials! We have a fabulous coffee table (Craig’s list find) that my hubby and I can’t wait to try milk paint on it!

    P.S. it’s refreshing to see someone else named Marian that’s not 80 years old! Hehe gotta love those family names passed down
