But for the love of Pete! Would you look at this? (Yep, I made that picture extra giant because I LOVE it)
I would officially like to invite Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint to live in my house forever. Or at least until I run out of furniture at Restoration Emporium and in a panic, run home to pick up whatever furniture I have painted in my house. Let's be honest, the lifespan of furniture in my home is sometimes not very long at all!
I found this piece in an antique shop and passed it up the first time, it was just on the edge of being too much money, so I went home empty handed. I went back two days later because I couldn't stop thinking about it. It has fabulous details and such texture on the wood, that I knew it was special.
I know you are jealous that your dining room isn't as pretty as mine and that you don't have Christmas wrapping paper and moving boxes all around. Let the haters hate :-)
I painted this beauty with MMS Milk Paint in Linen, almost immediately, it started to peel and chip. I have painted a few pieces with milk paint before and never had chippy happen like this. Seriously? I thought it was alive!! There is no way to really control what happens which is a little hard for a control freak like me, so I just walked away. You would have thought I could have unpacked a box or something ... ummm, not so much.
I love the result. It looks so authentic and CHIPTASTIC!!
It's always good to have another tool in your box for just the right piece.
This is the right piece for Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.
***UPDATE ~ In what may be the quickest change ever, I have decided to take this to Restoration Emporium for the sale, February 1-3. I got the flu and didn't have a chance to paint much this month, so, a lucky someone else will get the chance to love this beauty in their home!
