Linen Milk-Painted Washstand Makeover


I know the before picture I saw of this piece doesn't show much, but I could see the underlying beauty right away. Did you notice the carved details and the cuteness of this piece? I did and I knew I had to make her over. I promise she turns out pretty fantastic despite that very ugly picture. A little love, glue and time and she was all ready for some paint. Miss Mustard Seed's Linen Milk … [Read more...]

Desk in Rich Boxwood Milk Paint


This piece has a story. I was scheduled to pick it up on a Monday morning at 9 am once my kids were on the bus and headed into school. I thought it was a good plan, BUT plans don't always go as planned do they? I loaded this with the help of the gal I purchased it from and then got into my Jeep to leave, but as soon as I shifted it into reverse, my brake pedal went to the floor. I knew … [Read more...]

So...I am the worst blogger ever. I haven't blogged in an entire week! It isn't because I don't want to or because I have nothing to share because I certainly do, BUT sometimes life gets busy. Then all the extra things get pushed to the side. I am up earlier with the girls now that school has started and that means by 10 pm, I am D.O.N.E. Typically I am up until 1130 or 12 am, but I am just … [Read more...]

Gorgeous Tall Artissimo Chest Makeover

 This is the original Craigslist picture that drew me in...can you see why? The tiered top, the turned legs, the shape...I loved it all! Apparently when the seller purchased this it was painted yellow and she took the time to strip off the paint. She didn't fully finish the refinishing project though a some of the wood was different colors and not then stained to match. I didn't want to … [Read more...]

Trophy Hutch

THIS caught my eye right away! A gorgeous, tall vintage Drexel was in fantastic shape, too! I loved it! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I thought it needed a strong and sophisticated Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Trophy. It is a sweet color! So...Trophy it is! I wanted to avoid chippiness so I added the Bonding Agent when I mixed the paint. I … [Read more...]
