Miss Mustard Seed's Tricycle

I just finished up another project with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Tricycle.  I finally did a piece that got some awesome chipping.  I kept doing pieces that had a lot of grain and were somewhat dry.  Therefore, no chipping.  This was a fun, quick makeover.  This is an old telephone chair.  Or, I think they are also called gossip chairs.   Here's what she looked like before.  It actually looks better in this picture than it did in real life.



I painted two coats of Tricycle and then scraped away all the chipping.  Once that was done, I applied the Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Wax.  And Voila, here she is in all her chippy goodness.











Well, there it is, short and sweet.  What do you think?

By the way I have received my Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint shipment and am ready to take your orders!
