Antique Dealer & Collector, Karla Meals reviews our paint!

Karla worked on a special project and had this to say about our milk paint! Thank you, Karla!

"I have been searching for a nice country blue firkin for most of this year and can't seem to find one. So, I bought this Cornflower Milk Paint at the SImple Goods show thanks to Dawn Conrad Williams. It is her new milk paint line. I gave my old primitive firkin a make over. It is my trash to treasure object. I added it to a stack of firkins with antique paint and it blends in so well, I couldn't believe it. Thanks Dawn for your awesome milk paint.  It dried to a powdery finish like really old milk paint and the shading was amazing! Please feel free to use this picture as a testimony to your great paint! Thanks again.".
Thank you, Karla! So glad you were happy!

Skillet....our "black"...turns out beautifully, distresses easily.

Hello Bittersweet!!! Prettiest color yet!

We are absolutely thrilled with this new color. This chair took only 2 1/2 tablespoons of paint powder mixed with water to complete. Lightly distressed and then lightly waxed. I just love the way it turned out.
