Your online source for all your General Finishes products

Since 1928, General Finishes has been manufacturing wood coatings to the highest performance standards. Recognized as a leading innovator in the development of water-based finishes. Their award winning products are easy to use and provide superior colour adhesion and durability.  

General Finishes Milk Paint is my go-to. I have tried a large variety of paints over the years but always reach for General Finishes products and here’s why!

Milk paint is a modern day pre-mixed acrylic version of old world paints but offers a contemporary palette of low lustre and rich colours. It is perfect for furniture, cabinetry, millwork and up-cycling or repurposing existing finishes. Mix it, lighten it, distress it, glaze it, layer different colours or antique it. Although Milk paint is self sealing, we highly recommend topcoating it in areas of high use or traffic. It is fast drying, water cleanup, minimal odor, can be sprayed or brushed AND is interior and exterior rated. It will also adhere to a variety of surfaces including wood, fiberglass, primed steel, vinyl and most composite materials.

To simplify… it’s super easy to use and offers incredible results for both an amateur or professional furniture painter. It is self leveling (paint levels out as it dries) and self-sealing (medium durability as is or apply a top coat for enhanced durability or sheen). 

Other General Finishes products such as glazes, metallics and stains can be applied to create other incredibly unique possibilities.
