This is a question we get every day. We could tell you that a pint of General Finishes milk paint covers about 75 square feet; a quart covers 150 square feet, and a gallon will cover 400 square feet. But let's see if we can break it down to more practical guidelines you can follow when choosing paint for your next project.
Gather round, friends. This is the story of a sad, tired little cabinet, a random video from a picking trip, and a customer who was patiently waiting and searching for the perfect piece of furniture. If you're on the hunt for a particular piece of furniture, this story is for you. (And yes, it has a happy ending.)
Happy Thursday, friends! Today is a special anniversary day for us...it was three years ago today we held our inaugural painting class here at Re-Invintage. We had opened a mere two months earlier, but we knew we wanted to help our customers feel confident tackling their painting projects.
We are huge fans of many General Finishes products, including their milk paints, high-performance top coats, flat-out-flat top coat and their oil-based stains. But their water-based wood stains are a true game-changer, allowing DIYers to get great coverage and quick dry time.
