Ombre Dresser with Milk Paint

Well, here I am again apologizing for waiting so long to put up another post.  I've gotten a bit distracted from blogging, even though I really enjoy sharing.
After I started retailing Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint, I took a bit of a detour trying to get everything going. I wish I had done a better job of documenting my milk paint projects.  Instead I just take a quick shot to post an item for sale, and forget to get before and after shots.  Even this one isn't the best staging.  Oh well, hope you'll forgive me.

I've had it in my head to paint this particular dresser with the ombre technique for quite some time.  For some reason I just never got around to it.
Here's the before shot.

I decided to go with the Boxwood color on this piece.  The bottom drawer is in Boxwood.  Each drawer from bottom to top then has Ironstone added to the Boxwood in greater proportions as you get to the top. I did use the bonding agent in my first coat of each color to keep it from having the "chippy" look.  The framework and knobs of the piece are in Ironstone alone.  Then I distressed it a bit and topped it with Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Wax. This wax goes on like butter!  I love it.  So here it is waiting for it's forever home in my space at Rusted.

Well that was short and sweet.  I'm a woman of few words. What can I say.

If you haven't tried Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint, be sure to give it a try. You will love the finish!  Please find a retailer near you and support your local businesses.  If you don't have a retailer in your area, I hope you will visit my website Here, to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Jeanne, I'm a 53 year old grandma (that only feels like it some days) who lives in Jax too. I'm actually not far from you near the empire point area off Atlantic. It's so nice to connect with another Jacksonville blogger. I'll be following.
