We’re excited to announce the paint sponsor for American Farmhouse Style in 2020: Sweet Pickins with their milk paint!

Owner Sausha Khoundet started her business by painting furniture to resell, but she soon became enamored with milk paint! It’s food safe and non-toxic, with absolutely no VOCs. It’s made from all natural earth ingredients, including casein (a milk protein), and limestone.

The paint comes in powder form so you can mix however much you need for your project and the rest won’t spoil!

The milk paint comes in a powder form, which you then mix with warm water. Every 2 ounces of powder covers about 12 square feet of surface area, whether you’re painting furniture or anything else. The paint will work well on multiple surfaces, including metal, brick, glass and plastic—as well as wood, of course.

The milk paint can create a myriad of different finishes, such as this silky smooth finish with just a touch of patina where the paint was sanded off.

You can use it to create gorgeous chippy pieces of furniture, or pair it with one of Sweet Pickin’s oil, wax finishes or even a crackle finish to create that old farmhouse look! For a tutorial on how to redo a piece of furniture with milk paint, go here.
