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! 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!
We upcycled this wood box from a piece of turn of the century salvaged house trim. We love to be able to take something old and discarded and make it into a beautiful decor piece. We painted this one with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter. We then gave it a light distressing and sealed it with hemp oil.
This custom cabinet features an old salvaged window. The interior has been painted with General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint. The exterior is painted with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint. We then lightly distressed the exterior and sealed it with antique wax by Miss Mustard Seed.
We are calling this one ”Barn Table” because, well, we found it in a barn. We are just clever like that! When we found this table it was missing it’s top & was looking kind of sad but we just knew it had potential. Look at that detail!
We started by giving the table a good scrubbing and sanding. Knowing we wanted to stain the new top we used a piece of premium plywood. We stained the new top and drawer front with General Finishes Java Gel Stain. The rest of the table was painted with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint. This is our favorite black paint. The color is just so rich & beautiful! Once everything was dry, we lightly distressed the entire table. We love the way distressing brings out all of the details. Finally, we finished this piece with General Finishes Flat Out Flat Top Coat. We wanted more of a matte finish for this piece and Flat Out Flat is the perfect choice for us!
