Here are a couple of great examples of how our Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint can be used on a variety of furniture styles to get numerous, very different looks.
One, rustic and antiqued. We stained the top of the table using MMSMP in Curio and blended the yellow with antiquing wax:
Two, refined with little distressing and straight clear furniture wax:
Is it spring yet? I guess the answer in Indiana is “not today”! Well, at least or Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint colors are spring-like! Nothing says spring like yellow and green…
We are just moving right along through 2019, aren’t we? It’s March already and we are loving the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint colors of the month for this month, French Enamel and Trophy!
First, French Enamel…
It is a soft blue and one of Miss Mustard Seed’s favorites. She created it to mimic the look of old French enamelware and it is spot on. Lots of blues mix to make French Enamel a perfect accent color. Check out some of the side tables we have finished in French Enamel…
I love Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Trophy! We’ve been painting loads of buffets, dressers, lingerie chests and bedside tables of all sorts and sizes with MMSMP Trophy. And, they all look amazing, if we do say so ourselves. Trophy has a bit of a green base and so the look is almost pewter when dry. We finish it, more often than not, with a custom mix of antiquing and furniture waxes. Here are some of our latest pieces…
MMSMP Farmhouse White is an antique white, perfect for when you want a little depth on your piece of furniture. I’ve been using Farmhouse White more and more, and while I’m still a Grain Sack girl at heart, Farmhouse White is winning me over. We answer questions about the differences between the two colors all the time, and my general response is that Grain Sack has just a hint of gray and is therefore a bit darker than Farmhouse White. Check out our Pinterest board for more inspiration.
Our other Color of the Month for February, is Arabesque, a soft pale pink that is part of our European Line.
The Colors of the Month for December are Marzipan and Boxwood! Marzipan is a rich cream (as the name suggests). We love to finish Marzipan with a light antiquing or maybe even a little white wax.
Boxwood is one of my favorite mmsmp colors. Marian named the color after boxwood plants that she likes to use in decorating her home.
Have you tried our MMSMP colors of the month for November??
Schloss, our lovely, taupe/gray, is a great neutral if you want some warmth in your gray. Can you beat a gray with brown undertones? Not in my book!
And, speaking of brown, here’s curio! Miss Mustard Seed created Curio to mimic the look of old an old curio cabinet. It is the most versatile of all our MMSMP colors in my mind because it is really a walnut color. You can add extra water to make a stain or a wash or mix it at full strength for a rich, dark brown.
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!
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.
We hope you all had an a fun 4th of July! Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint is quite patriotic with the colors of the month choices for July — artissimo, our navy, and tricycle, the best red out there!
We have been using artissimo on lots of great pieces lately. It is a great option for dressers, side tables and everything in between!
And, tricycle finished with our antiquing wax is always a fave. We love the softness that antiquing wax brings to tricycle, although it is quite stunning with just a clear coat as well…
This is one of my favorite small pieces we have done in a while — I love the cute paint job in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Lucketts Green and the vintage quilt topper is very sweet.
As you can tell from the before, the piece was a honey oak color with some old, old fabric. We popped the top off to refinish, covering the top and underside with the quilt fabric and painting the inside in Lucketts Green. How sweet is this?? Already off to a new home!
The Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint colors of the month for February are Farmhouse White and Arabesque.
Farmhouse white is one of my favorite colors and we painted many, many pieces in FHW in 2017. I call it our antique white because it is between a true white and an off-white. It really is the perfect color…
And Arabesque. We don’t use arabesque too much – a nightstand here or there – so I had to borrow a picture from Fred and Bessies! Look at how sweet our soft pink looks on this adorable cabinet!
We have all colors online and in our store!
