Miss Mustard Seed Ironstone Chairs

I used to pray for twin boys.

Oh, the fun they would have. . .

ย the mischief they would get into. . .

the great laughs they would share. . .

I wanted them each to be unique in their own way.

One, the attention getter.

The other, the quiet one to hide behind his brother.

I would dress them in matching outfits.

Each outfit slightly different than the other.

So they could easily be told apart.

But, God in all of His wisdom blessed me with one girl at a time.

Daisy Sue.

Anna Belle.

Lila Mae.

And, do we ever have fun, mischief, great laughs,

and, more matching outfits than you could count!

These “twins” were painted with Miss Mustard Seed’s Ironstone Milk Paint.

Each chair accepted the paint a bit differently.

That is the beauty of milk paint!

  1. love their chippiness! they are perfect!

  2. You are such a dickens, leading us on. After 3 girls, 2 boys would be a shock. They are mischievous and then some. Believe me I know. Had girl first then two boys 16 months apart. The 2nd. boy was all boy too, what he didn’t think of his big brother did. Good thing I was young then.
    Love your twin boys, great color on them also. Just right amount of chippiness. Are you selling those kids or hanging on to them?
    I sure wish I’d bought the neat windsor chairs I saw at Goodwill a while ago, Were only $8 each, would have made a great bunch for around a table. Nothing stays there for any length of time (except for my lamp)there. A body has to be quick to grab a good deal.
    Have a great week.

  3. Melissa,
    What is your address. It is looking like I could possibly make it to the publishing party. We were supposed to be hosting a party for a friend who is moving to Miami to start a church but it may be somewhere else now. Someone that has a pool, lol. So, just in case, let me know because those plans are not set in stone yet.


  4. Gorgeous chairs Melissa! Great post ๐Ÿ™‚

    xo, Tanya

  12. the twins turned out beautifully! Makes me want to give this milk paint a try!

    You’ve inspired me to play around with milk paint!
