Milk Paint Now Available at Steeles Paint and Decor!

At Steeles Paint and Décor Centre serving Woodbridge and the Greater Toronto Area, we are always looking for new and different items to enhance our already vast selection of unique products. Homestead House & Miss Mustard Seed milk paints are here now, and right on trend if you are looking to create a rustic/distressed look!

Milk paint is by no means a new invention. Speaking archeologically, a form of it has been discovered as a medium used to create paintings on cave walls and on unearthed artifacts from thousands of years ago! Through the years milk paint has been used not only for artwork but to paint furniture, barns and homes because of it’s durability and ease of use!

This brings us to today. Our customers are looking for Zero-VOC, easy to use products. Milk paints are formulated using milk protein (casein), limestone, clay and natural pigments. The result is a very durable paint popularly used by modern designers, green consumers and home owners seeking to capture a variety of modern, trendy, antique and textured looks.

The distressed and “chippy” looks are cutting edge with today’s designers & decorators thanks to the success of retailers that specialize in rustic industrial, steampunk and barn-find look furniture and accessories. We are very excited to represent and promote Miss Mustard Seed and Homestead House lines of milk paint and related products that will allow you to create these types of finishes.
In the New Year, we are planning demos and workshops with these products! Plan to come in and find out how easy it is to create these looks for yourself. Watch our website & twitter feed for updates!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from your friends at Steeles Paint & Décor Centre.
