5 Projects Using Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 in milk paint | 12 comments

If you have never been over to Miss Mustard Seed’s blog,

you should go.

Like, now.

Ok, maybe not right now. . .

{But, right after you read this post.}

I wish she lived next door to me.

I think we’d be friends.

She is the one who first inspired me to paint a piece of furniture.

And, now I have a house FULL of furniture that I’ve painted.

And, a garage FULL of pieces that are in need of paint.

Because, once you’ve seen how she can transform a piece,

you see potential in everything.

In my case, too many things.

Like, now I have so much potential in my garage,

I can hardly walk in it 🙂

And to make things even better,

she now has here own line of milk paint,

in crazy terrific colors!

5 Milk Paint Projects @ DaisyMaeBelle

MMS Kitchen Scale Chair @ DaisyMaeBelle

Cool colors with cool names.

Like “Kitchen Scale.”

{Which is going to be the color of my super cute vintage truck,

complete with burlap seat covers,

that I am going to own one day :)}

Miss Mustard Seed Ironstone Chairs @ DaisyMaeBelle

And, “Ironstone.”

Because what vintage farmhouse is complete without a bit of ironstone?

And, don’t we all long for a farmhouse?

And, not only are the names cool.

But, the paint is cool.

Because, you never know exactly what you’re going to get.

You don’t know how much the paint is going to chip. . .

Or, if you are going to need to sand it a bit. . .

Kitchen Table @ DaisyMaeBelle

The one thing you’re going to know for sure,

is that you’re going to end up with a totally unique piece.

And, all of your friends are going to want to know how you do it. . .

And, if you have any tips. . .

And, where you get the paint. . .

And, then they’re going to start bringing you their cast off furniture,

because they think you’re going to be able to do something with it.

And, before too long,

you too are going to have a garage full of possibility. . .

So, now you should go check her blog out 🙂
