Our milk paint is made today with the same basic ingredients used for the past hundreds of years- milk protein, lime and earth pigments. The look and feel of a surface painted today with our milk paint is no different than what was found on furniture, walls and floors in country houses in Colonial America.

Our company's founder, Charles Thibeau originally began experiments in 1974 to reproduce a milk paint formula that would exactly replicate the look of Colonial furniture. His company, The Country Bed Shop, reproduced museum copies of four poster beds, case furniture and chairs. The texture and colors of the milk paint were copied from pieces of furniture found in museums like Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, Winterthur, Wadsworth Atheneum, Old Sturbridge Village, etc.

We have succeeded in finding a safe way to reproduce the old look by making a milk paint the old-fashioned way. When you are using our milk paint, you know it is authentic.
