Miss Mustard Seed Kitchen Scale Chair

I dream of owning an old pick-up truck. . .



Shiny chrome accents.

I dream of riding around town. . .

My golden retriever hanging her head out the window. . .

With a red and white gingham bandana around her neck.

And, now I know what color the truck’s going to be.

Surely you can have a truck painted this color?

And, I just might cover the seats in burlap.

Life to the full!

  1. Love this color too Melissa! Would love for you to share your gorgeous chair (and vintage truck plans 🙂 with us tonight at Pretty Things!

    xo, Tanya

  2. What a great dream gal. I love the old trucks. One of the bloggers has an old truck she toots around in. I forget what she calls it or the color. It’s one of the really older trucks, maybe in the 40’s at most 50’s. Love the idea and can picture your dog with her head out the door with her scarf on. Awesome. I love sound of old truck doors closing, that tinny clang.
    We had an old truck in MT and I loved driving it. The brakes weren’t too great tho so didn’t drive it into Helena, just around our place, to the dump, sometimes to Townsend. We had to take our trash to dump, for some crazy reason I loved loading up that old pick up to go to the dump or into Townsend for little bit of stuff. Just had a small grocery store there but was good for little stuff. If Lowell was gone alot in the winter I’d just go to Townsend as I didn’t care a whole lot for having to drive around the lake when it was really icey and going around the damn was pretty scary. That was only way to get to Helena unless I went to Townsend then to Helena, long trip especially in winter. I got caught in Helena several times in winter, had to drive home in blizzard/white outs. whoops there I go again, tell me to just shut up ok if it bugs you to hear my stories. Happy days gal, hope you get your truck someday.

  3. love it! that color is just so much fun!

  4. Your chair turned out great! Little Bit

  5. Great pop of color Melissa. I love the finish! We actually had a truck about this color. It finally rotted out so bad it had to go to truck heaven. I have some really cool picture my daughter took of it. I’ll have to see if I can find them and post it.


  6. I was hoping I would find out color your old pick up would be… and I love that shade of green! Funny how desires pop into our heart when perhaps they hadn’t been there before. When I turned 40, my desire was to own a Jeep Wrangler, drive around on back roads wearing my skin tight jeans tucked into my boots, and my two dogs in the back seat! Heaven! And what did happen? I became pregnant with a baby I didn’t think we’d be lucky to have.. I’d take that any day over the jeep!!

  7. What a wonderful chair! I love chairs and would have a lot more of them if I had the room. I tuck them into every conceivable corner.

  8. I love your chair!Your first photo on this post is so homey and inviting! Thank you for posting. Linda

  9. I’ve always wanted one of those trucks too!! If anything to have as decor in my driveway…do you think that would be over the top?? Love the burlap seat idea! Maybe have a small lavender bunch hanging form the rearview mirror and a metal cow head on the grill?! haha!

  10. I love the chair, and the fresh green color.

  11. I’ve seen an old truck in pretty much this color and if I can ever get my hands on it, believe me I’m gonna snap it up. I’m with you, how fun would that be picking up junk in a cool truck like that. We dream alike!

  12. I love your chair! So pretty! My husband has a ’56 Chevy about that color. I’d love for you to share at Transformed Tuesday. I know my readers would love to see. http://pjhdesignsoneofakind.blogspot.com/2013/04/transformed-tuesday-35-features.html

    I hope you have time to stop by.

  13. LOVE that paint color! It’s perfect!

  14. Love the chair and it’s color. I purchased some Annie Sloan chalk paint on Tuesday and I am excited to get started, but have to finish a could projects before or I will get all mixed up. LOL
    I’ve always wanted an old truck also so I could put my treasure that I find in it. But always try to cram it my car or call a friend to come and get it. I’m surprised that I haven’t gotten a ticket for hauling junk/treasures around.
    Have a wonderful week.

  15. You’re so cute, Melissa, and so is that chair.

  16. Love it Melissa, the colour is fabulous!! Great job… Again:)!!

  17. Love the chair! I have bought some MMS milk paint, but have been a little nervous to try it. Your chair turned out great! I guess I need to just take the plunge and try it out, huh? 😉

  18. Look in your rear view mirror. I’m the faded old red truck right behind you ready to stop and pick up anything that falls out of your overloaded truck. Please put that green chair on the top so it falls off.

  19. I have been wanting an old truck in the same exact color you painted that chair! I love the addition of burlap seats!!! BTW, the chair looks fabulous. Love the moss bird too!

  20. MMS Milk Paint is a great product! And Kitchen Scale is a beautiful color! This chair looks gorgeous!

  21. I just painted a dresser this color and loved it. But a truck would be really awesome!

  22. Love the color, beautiful piece of art! Thanks for sharing at BNOTP.

  23. That looks great. I wonder what the difference is between Milk and chalk paint. I have been using chalk paint. Your projects turn out so great! Following from HickoryTrail


  24. Last time I visited your blog, I commented that I needed to find myself a door, now you have me excited to go out and find a chair AND a colored pick up! Oh boy, have to start saving my pennies! 🙂
