This lovely day bed has a fresh coat of paint in MMSMP grain sack, a new foam base covered in fabric from Ballard Designs.
It was not much to see before but looks absolutely adorable now!
Sometimes people create new and exciting finishes for furniture and you are immediately inspired and want to recreate the look on your own furniture. THIS WAS NOT ONE OF THOSE TIMES!
Can we just take a moment? For the sponge painting. For the MULTI-colored finish. For the colors used in the MULTI-colored finish. I mean, you guys, bless its heart. This poor table did nothing wrong. It’s so cute and scrolled and short and fun.
I’m happy to report that we staged an intervention for this table in MMSMP mustard seed yellow and it is much happier now.
Join us for a three-hour workshop where you will learn how to use Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and the corresponding products. We will make sample boards using several resist techniques, play a bit with the colors and then paint a small chalkboard or frame for you to take home. All materials provided, $65.

Think Halloween, already?
Our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Colors of the Month for October are Typewriter, our soft black and fivethirty fave, and Outback Petticoat, the newest color in our line that is a vibrant orange.
It’s almost hard for us to narrow down the options for our typewriter collages because we use it so much. Some of my all-time favorite pieces have been painted in typewriter. Buffets, side tables, chests and more — it has been a great color for so many pieces of furniture. We almost always finish MMSMP typewriter in Antiquing Wax because it takes the paint from a dark charcoal to a soft black. We will sometimes buff the finish more for a richer, full black color.
And Outback Petticoat…
We are excited to have Outback Petticoat as an option this fall. Perfect for pumpkins, signs and everything fall, Outback Petticoat is a vibrant orange perfect for a pop of color. I prefer to use our Antiquing Wax as a finish for this color also. It adds a layer of depth that appeals to my orange-loving self!
Both of these colors are available in the store and online in both tester and quart sizes!
This unusual table is painted in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Shutter Gray, one of our Colors of the Month for September! Shutter Gray can be very blue on some pieces and this was certainly one where it looked more blue than gray. To remedy this, we finished the piece in our custom gray wax.
How do you make gray wax? I’m glad you asked! In a separate container, mix a dollop of MMSMP antiquing wax and a dollop of MMSMP white wax. Stir. Very easy and the possibilities are endless depending on how much of each wax you add to the mix.
Happy Fall! Hopefully the cooler temps arriving soon will get us all in the mood to decorate for this amazing season. We have a huge selection of tobacco baskets, the perfect accent for fall and rustic decorating.
These authentic tobacco baskets were salvaged from a farm in Tennessee. They measure roughly 40×40 and are a great statement piece! Above the mantle, on a large blank wall…perfection!
If you’d like a less expensive, smaller option, we also carry various sizes and shapes of reproduction baskets. These are great for a collage wall or a stand alone space in any nook in your home.
We are a family-owned business based in Zionsville, Indiana. Our mission is to find previously used treasures and bring them to you or to recreate them at a bargain price. We have a large selection of art, re-purposed furniture, secondhand home decor, custom furniture and so much more.
