Shutter Gray

Many of you haven't tried Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint yet, and we'd like to change that.  Hopefully with more inspiration from us, you'll be more apt to give it a try.  This dresser is done in Shutter Gray.





I love the color. It is such a pretty blue gray.  I used bonding agent on the surround, and went without on the drawers.  So far I've had luck with the chipping. I didn't use a scraper this time to help the chipping along.  Instead I just rubbed it with a cloth to remove the chipped paint. 
Well, now it's your turn to give it a try!

  2. Hi Julie
    Thank you for gracing your beauty over at my place, and leaving my words that encourage and joy my heart.

    I love your chest, the more beat up pieces look and feel the more soul it adds to a room.

    Thank you please visit soon.
