Antique Mahogany Sideboard Makeover: My Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Debut

As you know, I recently moved to the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania area.  I was beyond thrilled to find out the other day that a local shop sells Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk paint.  I have been wanting to try this paint since it came out, but simply didn’t take the opportunity to do so.  I hate paying shipping fees honestly.  That’s just it.  So when I found out I could just drive 20 minutes to pick it up, I did just that.  I came home with my prize.

Needless to say, I was pleased as punch.
I found the perfect piece to try it on…a gorgeous sideboard I purchased from the weekend’s yard sale…one of the best finds E-VAH!

Yard Sale 9

She is really stunning.
A natural beauty..and in fabulous condition.
I rushed to her when I saw her sprawled out on the front yard with a sale tag on her.
I tried to look non-chalant…but it was out of urgency.  I expected to see a SOLD tag on her (Oh how I hate those), but alas, she was still for sale at a price so good, I can’t even tell you.

I couldn’t wait to try my new milk paint on her.  I chose to use French Enamel which is a lovely blue shade in Miss Mustard Seed’s line.
I am BEYOND pleased with the results…
This paint is DA BOMB.

She sold quickly…good thing because I would hate to have to keep her.
You betcha I will picking up some new colors soon.

I will tell you more about how I did this piece soon…stay tuned!

  11. Hi Stacey,

    I saw on your post that you are in PA – I am in the Lehigh Valley area and was just down in the Lancaster area a couple of weeks ago (at the Pottery Barn Outlet). Wanted to send you an email to say Hi but everytime I clicked in one of the fields on your contact page the flower picture opened in a separate window.

    I also recently tried MMS Milk Paint and am loving the results!

    Reach out if you want to chat!

  18. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
