When people ask about the “style” of our store, I always pause before answering. We have so many different styles and have since we opened almost 5 years ago! I love rustic and I love fancy French and (most) everything in between.
Two of the pieces we brought in last week really show the variety we offer…
This pie safe was painted in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Trophy and is obviously quite rustic. From the wood top to the tins to the white knobs, everything about this piece says “Farmhouse”. The china cabinet, in MMSMP Typewriter, has a more refined and formal look. The glass, those legs and the casters give it a more traditional feel.
Well, we are sticking with it – and we are thrilled our paint line helps us achieve both looks!
We were lucky enough to get some pieces from our friends at Cobblestone Zionsville when they did their beautiful remodel earlier this year. One piece I have always loved was their hostess stand. I even loved the color, it just needed a bit of a refresh and some cleanout on the inside…
And, be sure to checkout their new look and updated menu — I still love Liz’s Signature Salad, you just can’t go wrong!

I was completely obsessed with how this piece turned out. It was a little sad (and dirty – ew!) before we gave it a quick clean with our new favorite, Dirtex, and two coats of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Tricycle. Finished with a thick coat of our Antiquing Wax and a rope pull, it has gone to a new home where we hope they love it as much as we did!!
Hello! It’s almost like they asked for my input on the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Colors of the Month for June. They didn’t ask, but I would have suggested these colors because one is my favorite neutral and one is my favorite color!
First, the neutral…Grain Sack is a soft white-but-almost-gray color and it is dreamy to work with. We use it on buffets, side tables, dressers and pretty much anything we want to be painted in a lighter tone.
And Kitchen Scale, my favorite color, is an amazing teal that can change tones depending on which finish is applied and what light the piece is sitting in. We used it on our big paint display at the store and look at the beautiful color all the time — it is a happy color!
If you’ve heard my story and how I started furniture painting, you know I used to stencil quite a bit. When my kids were younger, I stenciled trains and names, music notes and ABC’s. When I stenciled things for our home, I would use a paisley or damask or a “C” for our last name.
Sometimes the speed with which pieces turn over at the store prohibit me from taking the extra time to stencil furniture. I decided to slow it down and throw it back with these two pieces (and was happy I did because they have already found new homes!). Both pieces were painted using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter and I used a metallic paint, a stencil creme, for both.
