Miss Mustard Seed’s Typewriter Milk Paint

If you follow us regularly, you know we are a sucker for chairs! On one of our recent outings we were able to pick up a few chairs and a couple of great little stools. They just make such great accent pieces. We picked two for a quick weekend makeover.

We actually remembered to take before photos! Well, kind of before. These have been cleaned and sanded and ready for paint! It still counts, right?

These two seemed like a perfect candidate for our favorite black milk paint, Miss Mustard Seed’s Typewriter!

We just got a little chippy on the chair legs, you just never know. We could have used something to resist the paint and force it to chip but we like to just let it happen naturally. We love the surprise at the end!

Everything was sanded super smooth, distressed and sealed with hemp oil. Seriously, the finish is like butter!

These both will be available at Brothers Antiques North soon. You can watch for updates on our Facebook page 😊

Vintage ”Putty” Dresser

We are so excited about this piece! We picked this piece up over the weekend and have been working on it nonstop since. Mandy and I had bought a couple of different colors of Fusion Mineral Paints a few months ago. We had never used it before and kept hearing wonderful things about it. So, of course, we wanted to give it a try.

We used the first color, Picket Fence, right away. Maybe you remember this beautiful dresser.

The second color we forgot all about, until now. Looking through our paint stash we came across it. Putty by Fusion seemed like the perfect color for this piece. A beautiful neutral that would pair well with this dresser’s classic details.

Isn’t it gorgeous?! This is a must-see color, not too gray, not too tan. We updated the hardware with these beautiful glass knobs with antique brass stems. We just wanted to dress this piece up a bit.

Here you get a better look at the knob detail. We also lined all 4 drawers with this coordinating fabric.

We call it a dresser but it would look great in a dining room or entry hall, along the back side of a sofa. You get the idea!

We will definitely be using Fusion Paint again. It gives such a smooth flawless finish. It also has a built-in top coat, making it very durable. Yay!

Measures 43″W x 22″D x 33″H

Drop Leaf Table

We love these sweet little drop leaf tables. They remind us of grandma’s kitchen and what felt like a sweeter simpler time.

In today’s world, they make a sweet little addition to just about any space. They make great little sofa tables!

Once open they offer great additional dining and/ or work space.

Painted in our favorite diy chalk paint using Behr Swiss Coffee, lightly distressed and sealed with Tough Coat by Fusion Mineral Paint for a durable finish.
