Introducing General Finishes 2014 color palette for Milk Paint, adding 14 new colors to the premixed line it calls “furniture paint with soul.” The popular high-tech
repurposing furniture. Available in 28 mixable colors.
Woodcraft invites the Parkersburg, WV area residents to a free Upcycling Event at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Saturday, June 21, at 10 a.m. Mixed media artist Leslie Yoak from St. Marys will “upcycle” and repurpose ReStore items to improve their look and value. What’s the difference between upcycle and repurpose? Upcycling is taking something old or outdated and giving it a fresh modern new look. Repurposing is giving new life to an item by changing it into something entirely useful than what is used to be. For example, the item on the left below is an end table from the 80′s, upcycled with General Finishes products from Woodcraft, giving it a new flair with a distressed look to match the rooms decor. Photo right shows an old bathroom light box fixture, repurposed or transformed into a rack for hanging anything from jewelry and belts to other creative items for remodeling any room.
Woodcraft is one of several retail sponsors for the General Finishes 2018 Design Challenge that began July 18 and will continue through August 7. Contest categories offer a wide range of opportunities to win. Find out more!
For the second year in a row, local “makers” had the opportunity to use their creativity for a good cause – the Mid-Ohio Valley Habitat for Humanity. The ReStore ReDesign Contest encouraged entrants to upcycle furniture pieces for the chance to win more than $700 in prizes and have their project move on to the annual fundraising event, Destination Design.
The American Woodshop co-hosts Scott and Suzy Phillips have dreamed for years of creating the ultimate building on a budget. Last year, they got their chance. With the help of some friends, a good ol’-fashioned barn raising took place near the couple’s Piqua, Ohio, home, and Suzy’s “She-Barn” became a reality. Part of the barn build was featured on Season 27 of the couple’s educational woodworking television show, which airs nationwide on public television.
"Not a True Milk Paint"
I bought a pint of GF Lamp Black Milk Paint, which is a convenient product since it's pre-mixed. However, I found that it doesn't level-out or sand as nicely as the powdered products I've used and like very much. The GF website says that it is "not a true milk paint" but, really, it's not even close. Milk paint ingredients are; natural pigment, casein from milk and lime. The GF product ingredients are water, Acrylic Resin, Glycol Ethers and Tributoxyethyl Phosphate. Why not be honest and say it is acrylic paint with a look similar to that of milk paint?
LOVE this paint!
I have used this paint for several different projects and absolutely love how it looks. The Lamp Black paint is a beautiful color that gives off a slight blue glow when sealed with a satin poly. Highly recommend this paint.
I am going to order more of this product
I am using the paint for painting furniture and other wood pieces. Love the "shade" of black, and it looks great on the pieces I have painted. Will be back to get more colors in the very near future. Your quick response to my order was very much appreciated.
Highly recommend this paint and Woodcraft. Top of the line service!!
I used this paint as the main color to redo two old nightstands. I used about three coats for the coverage I wanted and then sanded the bottom colors through to distress. I was very pleased with the final product and will use this paint again. This was the first time I have used milk paint.
