Striking Buffet in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter

black buffet 1- EC

    She was lovely before paint...it's true. Can you imagine how much more with paint?? I purchased this from a furniture shop and opted not to buy the top piece rather using the base as simply a buffet. I loved her curves and that hardware was pretty awesome! I envisioned her as elegant and perfect for someone's dining room so I chose to paint her up in Miss Mustard Seed's … [Read more...]

Chippy White Empire

Chippy White 1- EC

 I spotted this gorgeous empire dresser at a YARD SALE. A yard sale! Can you believe it? I don't know how it is in your neck of the woods, but finding good quality pieces of furniture at yard sales doesn't happen often here. Where I live, everyone and their Mother has taken up painting so competition is rough. Lots of demand for pieces has killed the supply if you will. It is … [Read more...]

Washstand in Tricycle

Tricycle Washstand - Embracing Change

Isn't this washstand nice? I thought she would be a great candidate for a makeover! I mean the wood was fine, but she was just a bit drab. She needed some spunk. Know what I mean? I thought a bold POP of color was just what she needed! A little Miss Mustard Seed's Tricycle Milk Paint would be perfect! I added the Bonding agent when I mixed up the paint and then painted about four … [Read more...]

Sweet Vintage China Cabinet Makeover

green china 1 - ec

I loved this cute china cabinet when I saw it...it was so vintage sweet! I hadn't painted one in awhile so I decided to buy it and refinish it. It was adorable and I simply couldn't resist! I thought green would be the perfect color, but when I checked my stash, I saw that I didn't have quite enough of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Boxwood and thought I would add some of my Miss Mustard … [Read more...]

Hi everyone! Sorry I missed you guys last week, but I was on vacation enjoying some much needed rest at the beach! I want to go back again soon I tell ya! Those sunsets over the ocean are amazing! Here is one I had the pleasure of enjoying at Wildwood, NJ... I wish the picture could have captured its beauty, but truly you had to be there :) I am READY to go back! So....let's move onto … [Read more...]

Schloss Beauty

schloss beauty 1- EC

I didn't mind driving 45 minutes one way for this lovely depression-era beauty. My pleasure. The picture was a little unclear so I wasn't sure quite what I was getting. I was more than pleasantly surprised. I loved her tiered look, her turned legs and all her pretty carved details. Oh my. Isn't she a doll? She came with an amazing mirror too ... I couldn't wait to get her painted up! She … [Read more...]

Artissimo Desk Makeover

ART DESK 1 - EC

I found this cute desk on Craigslist and I liked it right away. It seems like people are always shopping for desks so it's always a good idea to buy desks when you find cute ones. This desk was snatched up by a gal looking for a desk to be custom painted in a fantastic color she loved - Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Artissimo. Artissimo is a rich and lovely navy blue. I mixed the paint … [Read more...]
