The second line of paint that I have been playing with and now have in stock is……

General Finishes Milk Paint & Glazes!

Just like the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Milk and Chalk Paint™ I feel that this wonderful premixed water based “milk paint” offers something special.  I fell in love with the Lamp Black from General Finishes {GF} when I was introduced to it by Cassie from Primitive & Proper.

She did an amazing desk in black and I immediatly had to order some of the paint and test it.  GF milk paint comes in a can {pint/quart} and they offer 20 beautiful colors.  They also have fabulous glazes that are perfect for project such as kitchen cabinets!   The things I like about this paint line are…

1. It is premixed

2. It provides good coverage

3. It came in TRUE BLACK!

4. And it provides new color options & glazes



These paint are interior/exterior acrylic paints suitable for indoor or outdoor furniture, crafts, and cabinets to produce a high quality satin sheen finish. This furniture paint provides a tough, high-quality painted finish for your project and is available in 20 of today’s most popular colors. It can be applied directly from the can to your work piece with a synthetic or foam brush; or applied using an HVLP or conventional sprayer. Milk Paint is UV resistant and is suitable for both interior and exterior furniture. Follow with our glaze effects for a distressed or antiqued look.  Here is an image of the amazing glazes..these too can be bought online or in the Falls Church shop.


The folks of General Finishes have a great page on their website showing you all of the layering and effects you can create with their products, check it out here.

General finishes has supplied me with TONS of free marketing materials {and paint for a GIVEAWAY!} so these will be at the Falls Church shop for you and I will include them in any online order.  Also they sent me these fab blocks with all the colors and the glazes so it makes it easier for you to decide on colors.


All of these fabulous marketing materials will be upstairs in the Stylish Patina DIY area in Falls Church {Stifel & Capra}.  If you have questions feel free to email me at  The paint is going in to the shop tonight and tomorrow is 1st Friday so the shop will be open until 8pm:-)

I will be leaving a little note book so you can leave me comments on items you would like to see in the DIY area, etc.
