My First Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint Reveal

If you've been by lately, you know that I am officially an authorized retailer for the new milk paint line coming out soon from Miss Mustard Seed.  I am so excited about this new venture.  I know anything Marian is putting her name on is going to be awesome!


I got my sample kit and dug in to get started.  I wasn't as brave as some of the other ladies I've seen out there.  I decided to start small.  I thought this little chair, with all it's grain, would be a quick and fun project to start on.  By the way, I only paid $1 for this chair. I figured that's a nice safe piece to experiment on.








I didn't take pictures during the process.  Sorry about that.  I started out using Ironstone for the first coat.  Then I used Tricycle for the second coat.  It wasn't quite what I wanted, so I whitewashed the Ironstone over that.  Unfortunately, it kind of looked pink.  I decided to use ASCP dark wax over that, to darken the tone back to more red.  I didn't get MMS Antiquing Wax in my sample kit, so I improvised.  Even with all those layers, it was a very quick project.  The paint dries really fast.  

Next, my sweetie cut a board for me to cover for the seat.  I used batting and a blue ticking material.  I love ticking.   Anyway here is the final result........







Let me know what you think. :)

Love the chair, I have been using MMS Milk Paint for about 4 weeks now for the furniture we carry at our St Charles MO Store.
we also carry the paint on our online store.
We find it best to help people understand how to use it, it is very much different then say your chalk paint.
