Miss Mustard Seed’s Kitchen Scale Table

I made a little discovery tonight. . .

while I was all dressed up. . .

listening to a speaker at a Spring banquet.

If you spend the day painting,

with Miss Mustard Seed’s Kitchen Scale,

and, you don’t have time to thoroughly wash all of the paint off of yourself.

It will look like you have little bruises,

or oddly placed veins

all over your arms.

The paint looks much better on furniture. . .

And, luckily I had a long sleeve sweater with me!

You can see another project using this same color here.

  1. OOOOOPPPPPSSSS! Shucks, how dare you be human. Did anybody notice but you? Hope not, glad you had a long sleeved sweater with you. Know how you feel tho.
    My hair is very fine, so when I have to go somewhere I use a medical tape to make the sides lie down so it’ll (hopefully) look nice when I get where I’m going. I have been known to walk in without taking the tape off. OH rats. I did this at the VA hospital with my husband. He didn’t even notice. So much for trying to look nice for him. lol Will it matter in 5 yrs?
    How did you like the milk paint? Love that little table. I’m so jealous of you gals in that part of the country, you find the neatest pieces to work on. I’m stil ticked at myself for not buying that little high boy I told you about for $150. Then I missed out on a great little buffet for $45 at Habitat.
    Not trying to say it wasn’t important to you. Having a little humor to help you feel better. Life happens while we’re busy making plans. Happy Days

  2. I am in Memphis laughing with you. I find paint in the strangest places even after I have bathed. I am in Memphis getting ready for
    Griffin’s wedding on Sat.

  3. I love the inspiration of the vase towards the colors of the table… or at least I’m assuming it was inspiration. 🙂

  4. Your table turned out super cute Melissa!

    xo, Tanya

  5. that is too funny about the color!!! love how it looks on your table- adorable!

  6. It’s adorable. I have to say I’ve gone to many a place with paint on me in spots I didn’t realize I had missed. After a while, people aren’t surprised any more. 🙂

  7. Love how this turned out! What a great color! And I like how you sanded the edges.

  8. That is the cutest little table. I love the color and the aging. Vintage Chic! Have a lovely weekend!~ Blessings!

  9. love love the color of this table!

  10. Wow the table looks great. I really like it. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Beautiful color on your table!

  12. You are too cute. And if anyone asked what you did for a living, you could always hold out your arms and say, I’m an artist”!

    Love the table. Never tried the paint but maybe soon! Great job!


  13. Turned out really nice Melissa. It has been said that if you don’t get paint all over you, you are not good painter. Guess you are a good painter.
    Love the little table.

  14. Adorable Melissa! Do you add anything to the edges so that the paint will sand off more easily (like Vaseline?). Just wondering your trick for aging your pieces (if you don’t mind sharing it, that is!).

  16. What sweet little table Melissa!

  17. Hi from Belgium! Cute side table!

  18. What a cute story. I was not a huge fan of milk paint until I saw you piece. You have done the best job I have ever seen… and I love the color of your little table. Great job! Kudos to you!

  19. Your piece looks marvelous!

    It’s wonderful to have you at Seasonal Sundays.

  20. Beautiful color and story to go with it!

  21. Hi Melissa, thanks for stopping over at Quirky Vistas and commenting. You always come up as a no reply blogger for some reason. Good luck tackling your junk this week. Here’s to making headway on the junk mob!

  22. Well, it looks like you got enough paint on that sweet little table to make it look just fabulous, Melissa! lol! Love that color, and your distressing is just perfect, girl! 🙂

    xoxo laurie

  23. Cute table…♥♥♥ the color!

  24. What a beautiful little table–I am in love with the gorgeous color! Great work 🙂

  25. Love the color and the distressing on the table. Last year at a doctor’s check up, he kept asking if my blood sugars were in line, did I have any numbness or pain below my ankles, and did I have trouble walking. I looked down to see that my feet were ever so slightly a black color where I had been spray painting buckets the day before! I was instantly cured.

  26. I love the color of your table and the worn off look. That’s my style of furniture. Thank you for sharing.

    Consider yourself hugged,

  27. What a beautiful table and a lovely story to boot. You are adorable!

  28. Your table is so adorable. Glad to see that someone else sometimes doesn’t have a chance to get the paint off. Oh the fun.
    Have a wonderful week,
    @ Eclectic Red Barn

  29. Love the color! So pretty!

  30. The colour is lovely and I love how it distressed.

  31. Absolutely beautiful!

  32. Love this little table and the color. Gorgeous. Thanks for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  33. LOVE the color. You did another great job 😉
    Jamie @ somuchbetterwithage.com

  34. very sweet table! The color matches my home perfectly 🙂

  35. Love your darling table! I have the exact same table that I transformed with chalk paint. Isn’t it grand to see the little table come to life with a makeover! Thanks so much for sharing!

  36. That table has the best legs ever! … I do find that paint pretty messy (maybe I’m just messy) and hard to wash off!

  37. I just love this little table and am including it in some of my favorites tonight from last week’s Project Inspire{d} link party. Thanks for sharing it!

  38. I love this little table and the beautiful color!!
    I’ve been tempted to buy some of Miss Mustard Seeds paint
    and this put me over the edge!
    I’d love you to share it on my brand new blog party. It’s all about sharing
    your deals and thrifty projects.
