I love lots of things about the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line…grain sack…antiquing wax…kitchen scale…typewriter…white wax…but the favorite of my favorites is hemp oil. We call it magic in a bottle because of what it does for wood, and as a finish for milk paint, and cast iron and my cuticles!
According to Miss Mustard Seed, this solvent-free oil finish provides a protective, water-resistant surface. Use on new wood that is bare, stained/milk-painted, or to revive old wood finishes. It penetrates to protect from the inside out. Does not leave a surface film that will chip or scratch. This food-safe oil finish is perfect for use in the kitchen on wood or stone. Used outside, it can restore the luster of old oil-based paint or revitalize surfaces such as cast iron. Test on an inconspicuous spot prior to using on an entire piece.
We sell it in the 250 mL and the 500mL sizes. You can find it on our website or in our eBay store.
I had these gorgeous table legs lying around and thought they we would be a great way to show the magic!
Applying hemp oil with a brush is great for pieces, like these, with lots of nooks and crannies (look at that sparkle already!)
After a few hours, just wipe away the excess and voila!
You’ll notice we put our hemp oil in a spray bottle…that’s for what we are going to do next! (See hemp oil: part deux)
