Small Town, Big Values

Buried deep in the heart of rural America, Old Masters calls Iowa home. We are part of a family-owned business that’s been around since 1926. Our founder, a Dutch immigrant, began formulating paint in his garage and soon after started selling it to a variety of industries. His mission was simple, exceed customer’s expectations by delivering a quality solution. We carry on this tradition today.

Our Brand

Old Masters crafts its stains and finishes in the artisan tradition, creating wood finishing products that celebrate the master craftsperson, with the skill and talent to create timeless wood pieces that last. Our tag line, “Craftsman Quality Finishes”, aligns with our commitment to this belief and philosophy.
