Milk Paint Custom Mixed Cutie

TrophyShutter Grey Dresser 1 - EC

If you recall, I posted a blog post about choosing paint colors two weeks back - more specifically if I should decide a color based upon what color I WANT to paint or to paint a piece a color that will sell easily (particularly white). Well...I decided it was more important to go with your vision and opt just to stick with my process of creativity that drew me to this business in the first place … [Read more...]

Snow Day Therapy

buffet new

After great anticipation, we finally had our first official snowstorm of the season today. We were slated to get 4-8 inches, but it turned out to be just 2 inches after all the hubbub. I thought it was kind of a dud, but it was so pretty after the snow fell. Plus we had our first snow day of the school year and my girls were pretty happy about that! I was too to be honest... I had just … [Read more...]

Desk Makeover in Custom Mix Milk-Paint

MP desk 1- EC

 I thought this desk was pretty cute with that pretty rope detailing. She was pretty run of the mill ordinary, but I liked her. I thought she would be easy to pretty up. I mixed up a custom mix of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Eulalie's Sky, Grainsack and a touch of Artissimo to make a gorgeous shade of soft blue. I used the Bonding Agent as well on this piece. I distressed it up a bit … [Read more...]

Flow Blue Beauty

 I saw this dresser posted for sale and I messaged that seller just as fast as I could.| This one was just too cool to pass up. I loved the tier on the top with the two drawers and the shape of the piece. I picked it up the next day - I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! Upon further inspection, I noted that the wood was marked, dinged and full of character marks, but it was a solid … [Read more...]

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...]
