Our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Beeswax can be used in several different ways. During our class at the store, we often talk about how versatile it is. One of the techniques taught during the class is the beeswax resist. Each member chooses their own color combinations and the results are varied depending on how much beeswax was applied.
Our Beeswax can also be used as a finish for milk paint or wood. I recommend applying it with a cloth because a little bit goes a very long way!
If you like gray, this is the month for you! Two of our lovely grays are the colors of the month for September.
Mora is a light green-gray and one of our European colors. It is a very soft gray that pairs well with other European colors like Layla’s Mint and Bergere. We like to use it on bigger pieces — think buffets, vanities, etc.
Shutter Gray is one of the original MMSMP colors and has been a favorite of ours during the six years since the line first debuted. Shutter Gray has some rich blue tones that can vary the color from gray to blue in the right light. We like to pair it with Grain Sack or distress over Curio.
This beautiful, unique sideboard we finished in MMSMP Farmhouse White was only in the store for a few days and was put on hold twice before finding a forever home with one of our favorite Fivethirty Home customers!
I really loved the lines of this piece and it was HEAVY! They really don’t make them like they used to!
Today begins one of my favorite Zionsville Events, our Fall Festival
See you there!!
For those who know me, you are aware I don’t have a ton of pink in my life! Four messy boys and lots of bright blue are what I see most. So, I decided to paint this sweet, feminine table in our MMSMP arabesque. It is a soft, dusty pink and we paired it with one of our pink and white knobs from the hardware bin at the store. What do you think?
Our customer requested a new color combination on this desk and we were immediately smitten! We used MMSMP in Typewriter on the top with Bergere on the legs. We finished both with antiquing wax. The antiqued finish on Bergere helped to blend with the dark Typewriter on top!
Also, this desk was a giant — 6 ft x 3ft so we didn’t get a picture until it was already in her law office!
