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...]

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. Plus with my time being tied up with a part-time job other than painting I have to move FAST when I do have some spare time. Anyway, I found this sweet antique dresser on Craigslist. It was just my style. I was pretty happy when I messaged the seller … [Read more...]

Stately Secretary Desk Makeover

ks-sec-2-ec

I put this project OFF for MONTHS. Big pieces always seem to get pushed off to the side. It's much more fun to work on pieces quickly and get immediate gratification because of the fast end result. So....there she sat pushed to the furthest back corner of my lonely garage. Waiting...waiting.... Finally after nearly a year, I got around to working on her. It was BEYOND time! I played with … [Read more...]

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...]

Arabesque Dresser

Color inspires me. I am oftentimes out and about and see a sign or object and its color strikes me. I think to myself I just have to paint in that color! It is weird and random and creatively wonderful. I think that is how my desire to paint in pink came about. I saw something that inspired me. I just had to paint something pink! Then....I had to find the right piece for it. It takes a … [Read more...]

I had been waiting for the perfect piece to use one of my favorite milk paint colors on... I … [Read more...]
