Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful Summer day! It is supposed to rain buckets on us in Indiana today. So, if you are local, be careful out there!
I’ve had a lot of questions about our new paint display, so I thought I would share our process and do a few close ups on some of my favorite parts…
Here’s the before, a-l-l 12 feet of it! It was a great find, but green. Really green. And, we all know it’s not easy being green!
Here she is in the store (half of her anyway), all gussied up with miss mustard seed’s milk paint and pillows and chalkboards. We painted her MMS kitchen scale over the existing green and then sanded so some wood and some of the old green comes through. One of my favorite things about milk paint is how easily you can let the history of a piece shine through!
The lower left corner of the big cabinet has an antique sewing storage bin with drawers and dividers that houses our sample size paints…
And the cubbies are perfect for all of the milk paint. We’ve held on to some of the old box packaging to add height here and there.
Our original display was an old wire bread shelf from a grocery store. We loved that one, but we are excited to feature the paint more prominently in the store!
Bye for now,
