Sweet Pickins Milk Paint QUART
Hello from Jess at Robin Eggs and Chicken Legs! In the last few years, my life has taken some amazing twists and turns, and from this journey RE&CL was established. Born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, I have been surrounded by some of the most beautiful covered bridges, homesteads and small farming communities in the area, rich in history and tradition. My love of gardening, cooking, thrifting, DIY, and upcycling has taken off in the last two years as a stay at home mom to two wild and crazy baby girls. My hiatus from teaching has been sincerely life-changing, and although I look forward to going back to the classroom, I have enjoyed the time with my family more than I ever could have imagined. As my girls have grown older and become playmates, I've gained back some time for my own art and creation, and it's been AWESOME.
Selling my vintage "found" goods, farmhouse-style upcycled furniture, and homemade dry goods, I found that the milk paint products I was using created a lot of buzz. And so I offer them to you here at Etsy, as well as in my RE&CL space at the brick and mortar store HOME by Kristen, in Ambler, Pa.
Try these all natural milk paint products by Sweet Pickins to achieve a chippy farmhouse appearance you find yourself drawn to on those heirloom pieces that steal your heart again and again.
Mix this powder form of paint with warm water, making it as thick or thin as needed for your project. We use an inexpensive immersion blender for easiest mixing over here at RE&CL, although it's not necessary. Choose from Sweet Pickins' 50 colors or experiment with your own color recipes to create a custom blend.
A sample (2oz) covers approx. 12 sq. ft
A pint covers 36 sq. ft
A quart covers 72 sq. ft
A gallon covers 288 sq. ft
Lighter colors like CREAMY, FLOUR SACK, & WINDOW PANE may need 3-4 coats of paint, whereas other colors will have complete coverage in 2 coats.
Top your finished painted piece with clear, dark or black oil wax by Sweet Pickins or any other finishing product on the market. Control the amount of chipping/flaking with the help of Sweet Pickins Extra Bond.
Please reach out if your paint needs exceed what's listed in our shop. We ship directly from the manufacturer and can fill most orders regardless of the inventory listed here. We're happy to answer your questions and think you will be happy working with us at Robin Eggs and Chicken Legs.

I just love Sweet Pickens milk paint! If you haven’t tried her milk paint you need to! I just received the Sweetie Jane color from Jess at Robin Eggs and Chicken Legs and can’t wait to try it out! Isn’t that just the cutest business name! She is a dealer for Sweet Pickens milk paint and is just the sweetest too! Ordering was easy and my package came so quickly too! Don’t wait go give it try!
Loved it! I am very happy how my project turned out!
I haven’t used my paint sample yet, but it arrived super quickly, with the sweetest note!! Highly recommend this shop!
The owner of this shop got back to me ASAP with every question I asked, I’ve never had such a great experience on Etsy as much as I did with the purchase. I bought too little of an amount, so I had to order a second and Jess was nothing but helpful and got it to me right when I needed it!
