Milk Paint Love

This week we hope to have Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint out for sale.  I have been playing with it a little bit, and I'm in love with the outcome.

As you can see, my first project turned out beautiful!  I love the way the milk paint chips all on it's own, making the furniture piece look naturally aged.  This was the first time I had used milk paint, and was pretty pleased with the results.


The process from start to finish is pretty easy, but the results look like it took much more time and energy to get to the end product.


 What do you think?  Did I do good for my first try?

This is what she started out like.   Great lines, wonderful size, just not there yet.


Oh how I wish I could keep her. 

Take a close look at all that chippy-ness.  You can have some too.  Stop by the shop and pick up some Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint and start painting!  We will be open this weekend and should have it all out by then.  We hope to see you Thursday, Friday or Saturday, and remember, we are open every Tuesday now too, from 9-12.  Have a great week!

  4. OMG is right! This is absolutely beautiful. I've already bought MMS in Tricycle, Luckett's green and the yellow. Haven't had the nerve to try it yet.
