As I’ve been sharing the process of painting the cabinetry in my house, I’ve received the same question several times…
“Why aren’t you using MMS Milk Paint on your cabinets?”
As I mulled over how to best answer that question, my thoughts wandered to my art supplies. I have oils, watercolors, acrylics, and pastels in my art cabinet. Why do I feel the need to use different mediums?
The answer is that they have different strengths and result in different looks.
Just because I have mad love for milk paint doesn’t mean it’s the only paint on my shelf. In this house (and in my last one as well), I felt like crisp, bright white trim and cabinets would best compliment the house and my style.
For that reason, I chose a paint that has different strengths and results in a different look.
I hope the fact that I share other paints and products that I use, like acrylics on some of my landscape dressers, spray paint on casters, and latex on walls, makes an even stronger case for milk paint. When I’m using it, it’s not simply because my name is on it. It’s because I love it and believe it’s the best paint for that specific project.
And MMS Milk Paint will definitely make a showing in the new house. I’m taking advantage of the nice weather, since I need to spray the cabinets outside. I can use milk paint inside the house any time of the year!
I have lots of plans, but I know I’ll be painting the base of the “factory table“…
And, I think this butler’s pantry has a lot of potential to look like a free-standing piece of furniture and milk paint would be well-suited to set it apart.
Next up, I’ll share the products I am using on the built-in and kitchen cabinets as well as a tips for getting a great finish.
