Farmhouse Cabinet in Miss Mustard Seed’s Farmhouse White Milk Paint

hutch 3 - ec

I was pretty excited when I spotted this antique hutch for sale - she was perfectly lovely - pretty and with amazing character. I didn't hesitate in buying her at all - I figured I could worry about that missing glass in the door later. Her turned legs and carved details got me! I knew right away I wanted to paint her white- ironically since I just blogged about how to choose color for a piece … [Read more...]

My Ramblings: Paint to Sell or Paint to Create

Sell or Create Pic

The furniture painting business is a tough gig. I mean it's about the oddest job you could imagine - painting late nights a coat here and there and working around family commitments, driving all over the place to pick up furniture that may or may not even be nice, meeting with complete strangers in their homes and trying to be wise about safety, and laying on the cold garage floor to paint at … [Read more...]

I was so eager to get painting this adorable dresser up that I forgot to take a before picture! I am so sorry about that! I suppose it happens.

Schloss Buffet Makeover

I couldn't believe I was able to easily snag this stunning buffet. I found it posted for sale on a Facebook sale site and it was there a day or two before I sent over a message to the seller. I couldn't believe no one got to it before me! I took my Mom to help me pick it up...not that she actually helps me load pieces as she probably 85 pounds, BUT her company is nice. She's so supportive of … [Read more...]

Elegant French Desk Makeover

 This desk was much too cute to walk away from... I needed to make her pretty! I liked her curves and lovely hardware. Oh la la! I imagined her in a soft creamy white. She would look so sweet and elegant. I custom mixed some of my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White with Cream as to create a cream that was just right and not too yellow.

Now that's a good friend ;) I really loved those pretty oval pulls...one of my favorite types of antique hardware. I was all in. My vision was a bold color. I just couldn't figure out what. She sat for awhile in my garage as I considered my options. I decided to go red. I … [Read more...]

I purchased this cute antique server from a furniture contact of mine. I spotted her from across the room in all her worn and beat up glory. I saw right past her worn finish. She would be just lovely. That I knew. She  needed to be brought back to life. She was the perfect candidate for a bold, rich color...like RED. Oh yes...RED! What a great piece for this color!| I couldn't wait to … [Read more...]
