Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!

Monday, July 20, 2015


If you love the chippy, worn look of vintage pieces of furniture, as much as I do, then you will LOVE the line of milk paint from Marian @ Miss Mustard Seed!......


 I have painted furniture, rooms & such for years...but had never tried milk paint. I have always wanted that fabulously "farmhouse-y" look, but found it almost impossible to achieve with latex paint!.....So I was looking into chalk paint......Annie Sloan.... & The Junk Gypsy's line as well. Well as it turns out Annie Sloan paint, which you need to purchase through her "stockists" was virtually impossible to buy here in Southern California & quite expensive. So  being a huge fan of Great American Country's Junk Gypsy's, I went to their website, but for some reason the computer wasn't cooperating & I could not make my purchase?.....


 Being quite frustrated, I suddenly remembered Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint, & went right over to her blog to find out more about it!...Well not only does MMS have a fabulous array of colors, she also has videos that explain every step!...& she makes it all very, very simple!....I realized you could easily purchase the paint on amazon, or many shops on etsy also carry it, along with all the brushes, waxes, etc!....


Yesterday I painted our guest bathroom cabinet, which is a standard boring brown built-in from the late 1970's. There is no sanding....no primer.....you just mix up the paint.....apply it to the cabinet....let it dry....distress the edges & corners to your desired taste...& then brush on MMS wax!.......OMGoodness, It turned out incredibly well!.....My old boring cabinet now has that old, slightly beat-up look I love!.....I did it in MMS "typewriter" so it is black with the old brown coming through where I distressed it!.....& with the wax, the entire cabinet has an elegantly old look to it!.....Thank you Miss Mustard Seed!......
    I am now off to the hardware store to purchase some rugged galvanized handles, which I cannot wait to add to the piece!.....
    I cannot wait to paint another piece here in my home!...Maybe the hallway cabinet?......but whatever I choose will be done with milk paint from MMS!!!....

Happy Painting!.....Heidi XO

This is great to know! I have some super ugly old brown cabinets in my kitchen that are dying for a redo. If I don't have to sand or strip, then I'm in! Thanks for sharing!
