We are almost certain this piece contained an old stand up radio at one time. It is the perfect size and shape and the inside shelves are what my husband would call “after-market.” I think someone who was handy must have taken the insides out and replace with some stained shelving. It is a beautiful piece but it was Ma-ha-gony when we started so we went with a darker color, MMSMP artissimo, and it turned out great…
One of our favorite families was looking for a china cabinet for some extra storage. We measured and planned and worked together to find this lovely Duncan Phyfe style cabinet and then painted the exterior in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Artissimo. It worked out perfectly for them (and for us because we lovveee working with them)!
One of my favorite combinations is MMSMP typewriter, our black, with kitchen scale, our teal. I’ve used this combination several times over the years. Bookshelves, wine cabinets and dressers come to mind as some of my favorite pieces.
The typewriter on this piece is hidden, it’s in the drawers which we can’t see in this picture – boo! We added these plain back knobs to coordinate.
This piece has been one of my favorites since we first brought it in. I’m rediscovering my love for mmsmp flow blue and it is certainly one of the reasons why we have started to paint more pieces in the color.
Choosing which color to paint a piece can sometimes be a challenge. We don’t want to paint everything in black, white or gray but those are the colors that sell the most so painting a larger piece in a bold color is a bit of a risk.
This piece was an enigma of sorts because of the eagles on the hardware right next to the bell detail on the edges. It was both masculine and feminine. I settled on flow blue with a little distressing and furniture wax to finish. Doesn’t it look great?
I call Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Shutter Gray one of our classic colors because it was the primary gray of the original 12 colors in the line. We’ve been “rediscovering” shutter gray as of late as I’ve become enamored of it all over again. The slight blue undertone works so well with the other colors (blue or not) in the line that we’ve been using it on several pieces! Welcome Back Shutter Gray!
