All Paints Are Not Created Equal


…and milk paint seems to be one that soars to the top of popularity. It’s a non-toxic, water  based paint with no harmful fumes that can achieve a soft, distressed vintage look or a funky, colorful retro appearance. Sky’s the limit with this versatile medium! 



Main Street Shoppes is fortunate to have an artist based right in our store who specializes in the paint. In fact, Michelle Dolon carries the popular line: The Real Milk Paint Co. (

Michelle helped us kickoff our Spring Fling Sale last week by doing a great demo using her paint.IMG_6363

 She took an old desk and transformed it into a beautiful creation complete with some distressed chipping and a copper glaze! Onlookers were amazed and picked up some great tricks of the trade. 







Booth 66 at our antique mall houses #LaBellaPatina, a gorgeous Boho/Cottage Chic style venue where Michelle showcases her upstyled and upcycled home furnishings. Her colorful, eclectic style utilizes her favorite brand of milk paint. She is always available to our customers to answer any questions on her milk paint of choice.


Michelle comes to us from California where she worked in the Hollywood movie industry amongst the stars. You see that cool, west coast influence in many of her pieces. She combines the vibrant color array with the softness of the milk paint.


Lots of our vendors in our antique mall have tried the Real Milk Paint with great success. They liked the ease of just mixing the paint powder with water to achieve the consistency they want. Biggest plus: perfect for acquiring that authentic, chippy look.


Distressed furniture is super hot right now…and milk paint can help you create that vintage, antiqued look. 


 What options you have! Main Street Shoppes has the milk paint for you in an array of colors and countless “raw” items for you to create your own masterpiece…or you can pick out that perfect, completed piece that speaks to you and your home decor.
