Here we want to talk about the best paint for furniture. Yes, we might be a little biased, but after painting furniture for quite some time now, these are the products that we love to use. We get a lot of compliments on our painted furniture pieces, so we must be doing something right.

Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint is the old fashioned kind of paint, used for many centuries before chemical paint was introduced to the the world. Marion Parsons, or Miss Mustard Seed from the blog world, collaborated with Homestead House, the manufacturers, to brand and package it in a way that is appealing to creative diy’ers. She came up with the colors and named each one of them for meaningful items in her life.

This line of Milk Paint comes in many Vibrant Colors that can be mixed and matched to create lovely painted pieces of furniture and so much more. We have each color painted on a board in our shop so that you can see the true color first hand. Ask about our Color of the Month Specials.

More of the best paint for furniture is General Finishes Milk Paint.  A very good paint choice for refinishing furniture and kitchen cabinets. It is versatile and easy to use and comes from the makers of the very popular, Java Gel Stain. Made in the USA.

It comes in many vibrant colors that are already mixed and ready to apply. It is not a true Milk Paint, but rather an durable, UV resistant, acrylic paint that can be used for many applications. Named milk paint, many years ago, because of the finish that resembles milk paint.


Not only does General Finishes manufacture a line of water based milk paint, but they are the makers of the very popular Java Gel Stain. Java is just one color in their line of gel stain. There are 11 other gorgeous gel stain colors including Antique Walnut and Brown Mahogany. A brilliant product to say the least. So easy and forgiving to work with. You can also use it as a “paint” over existing stain finishes.

Another furniture paint we often use and love is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It was the very first kind of furniture paint we used when we established our business in March of 2012.
