Our story begins in a small blue Pennsylvania barn. That’s where the vision for the Real Milk Paint Co. was born. Our founder, Dwayne Siever, started off refinishing antique pieces of furniture back to their original, historical finish. The finish on the pieces that came into his shop were carefully researched and renovated so that their true character would not be lost through time. It was during this process that he found that modern day paints just didn’t have the same look, texture, and feel as the paints used on the pieces coming under his care. Why was this? Well, glad you asked. The reason modern day paints couldn’t mimic what was originally used on the antiques was because it was not the same paint. They used milk paint.

After this realization Dwayne began the creating his own small batches of milk paint using traditional, natural ingredients to get back to the roots of the paint. Soon, more and more people were curious about this historical paint. He began making larger batches and more colors to meet the needs of the craftsmen surround him. In 1995 the Real Milk Paint Co. was launched with a line ten Real Milk Paint® colors.

Since our humble beginnings we have grown and even moved! Now located in the heartland of Tennessee we manufacture 56 unique colors of Real Milk Paint® using only the best, natural ingredients. We are still a family owned small business with a unified mission to provide finishing products that make living easier on the earth, easier on you. We are committed to producing only the highest quality products backed by that local, down the street hardware store kind of customer service.
