This little lovely will be heading to the booth at Brothers Antiques North later today. It was in really sad shape when we found it. We cleaned it up and added planks to the top for a little more character. It’s painted with our signature white chalk paint, lightly distressed and sealed with clear wax.
We love a planked top!
Measures 19”W x 19”D x 27”H
Available for local purchase only (Medina, Ohio and surrounding area.)
We love to add touches of black when decorating. Below are a few pieces we have added to our booth this week. Milk paint gives us that beautiful time worn finish we love so much. Typewriter by Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint is one of our favorites.
When sanded and sealed with hemp oil milk paint has the smoothest, most luxurious finish.
Hello, friends! We feel like we’ve been teasing you with this piece for quite a while. We originally hoped to have it available for St. Patrick’s Day. It must have brought us the luck of the Irish because shortly after we found out we were getting a space at Brothers Antiques North! Since then, we’ve been scrambling to gather items for move-in day on Monday, April 15th. We decided to hold back on selling the dresser and add it to our inventory for opening day. We hope you will stop in and check it out along with many other items we’ve been working on.
We have wanted to do a green piece for so long. As many of you know, we took a quick poll on our Facebook page and many of you loved the green. Yay!
We choose to use Tavern Green by The Old-Fashioned Milk Paint Company. It’s such a fresh, Springy color. We love to use milk paint for these antique pieces, it gives such an authentic timeless finish.
We even got a little bit of chippy! We sanded the paint smooth, lightly distressed the edges and sealed the paint with hemp oil. Finally, we finished by adding white wax to help bring out the details.
New white ceramic knobs were added for a classic modern look.
Look at those beautiful joints! These Knapp joints date the piece from 1870-1900. They just don’t make them like this anymore. Also, we love how the fluted detail on the knobs matches the detail of the joints!
We teased you guys last week about some exciting news and here it is! On April 15th we will officially have a space at Brothers Antiques Northin Medina, Ohio! 🎉🍾🎊 We love this shop and are so excited about this new venture. Only through the support you all have shown us over the past couple years do we have the opportunity and confidence to do this. So thank you! We hope everyone will be patient with us over the coming weeks as we prepare furniture and other goodies for our space. Make sure you stay tuned here, and on our Facebook & Instagram for sneak peeks of everything that is coming 😊 Love, Cheryl, and Amanda
These candlesticks are hand turned and made from pine lumber. They may have knots, small cracks and small holes – we love that because they add character! Each one is unique in it’s own way.
We first stain the candlesticks with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Curio and then paint them with white milk paint for a chippy finish. Finally, we wet sand each candlestick with hemp oil for a beautiful natural finish.
Hello, friends! Happy February. Spring is just around the corner and that makes us smile!
We are truly excited about this makeover. It is definitely one of our favorites to date.
We found this beauty last year at a local Goodwill store.
We paid a bit more for her than we usually like to pay but it was in excellent condition and just needed a little TLC.
So we cleaned it up and gave it a good sanding. Here it is all ready for it’s makeover.
We chose to paint this piece with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter Black (in the winter months, we paint inside and prefer to use natural, no to low VOC products whenever we can.)
We were also lucky enough to have Derrick from D Lawless Hardware supply us with these beautiful milk glass knobs. Thank you, Derrick! We thought they would pair perfectly with the vintage style of the piece as well as the black paint.
We mixed the paint with a bonding agent so the paint would not chip. We love us some chippy, just not on this particular piece. Once the paint had dried we sanded the entire piece and finished it with hemp oil. We lightly distressed the edges and other areas that would naturally wear over time.
We stained the wood top using General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and sealed it with Miss Mustard Seed’s Antiquing Wax.
And here it is….
We decided every desk needs a great chair so we dug this out from our hoard (let’s call it what it is) and gave it a makeover. It is finished the same as the desk/vanity. We replaced all of the foam and batting and covered it with a timeless, classic ticking fabric.
We added welting to the seat edge to give it a finished look.
We lined the drawers with a coordinating fabric.
This piece has such beautiful detail!
The hardware just adds to the classic look we were hoping for.
Love those little feet!
The wood grain is just beautiful!
As always we hope you like this piece as much as we do!
