BEST paint EVER!!!

Posted

Pros: safe, fun, interesting, texture

Cons: need to have enough jelly jars saved...

 for years, i have been trying to obtain a natural, rich, textured, european, rustic look on my furniture pieces and interior walls.  unfortunately, i was going to lowes and home depot looking through their toxic paint sections hoping to to find "techniques" and products using chemically saturated paint products attempting to achieve a rustic, natural down-to-earth "look".     at best, i'd walk out the door with several cans and containers which ultimately cost a small fortune.  it kinda reminds me of spending $250 on ripped and worn out jeans to get that old, worn-in look without actually being old and worn-out.   flash foward to REAL Milk Paint!  OMG... TEXTURE, bold & RICH color...

Old-timey eco-safe paint for steep prices

Pros: old-timey; nice colors; zero VOC (no toxic fumes!)

Cons: have to mix it yourself; expensive; mixing it involves a learning curve; very limited range of colors

I was young and innocent when I tried Milk Paint, and I had no idea how small a pint was. I got all excited because it was only about eight dollars for a pint!!! Eight dollars!! OMG!11!11!!!!!

Pros: super eco-friendly, cool packaging

Cons: gets dirty easy.

I saw this first used in a health food store here and town. they also sold the product. so when doing our daughter's nursery, it was a must have. It was easy to use. The down side is when it drieds, it looks a bit "dusty" like it has a very very thin layer of chalk. if your hands are wet, it can effect the paint too I've noticed. not a problem in a bedroom or living room, but could be in a bathroom or kitchen. all in all, we are happy with our non-toxic choice.
