kitchen scale is here

We had some damp and nasty weather that kept me in the house on Sunday afternoon.  It was the perfect afternoon for a roaring fire, sweats, football and apple cider with my boys.

And paint.

I had this little half moon table stashed away for some time in the garage waiting for my shipment of Miss Mustard Seed milk paint.

I couldn’t sit still long so I started painting that thing right in the middle of the living room in front of the game.  (Eagles lost. Waa.)  Please tell me someone else does this too.  Any room at any time can become a workshop for me with a little paint and a few drop cloths.  I’m very careful and the paint does not smell.  It contains no VOC’s, is environmentally friendly and all natural.

So I mixed up Kitchen Scale by Miss Mustard Seed and went to town.

I kept the milk paint a little bit watery to achieve an uneven washed look on the table.

So many people have asked about milk paint and chalk paint differences and I want to take this opportunity to point out how the products can be very complementary.  Here I used Annie Sloan gold leaf to accent Miss Mustard Seed’s Kitchen Scale and I love the results!

The fancy gold really highlights the curves of the table while the milk paint keeps things toned down and approachable.  I waxed the entire table in the milk paint companion furniture wax.  It goes on like body lotion.  It is so smoothy and creamy.

So it’s official, the much anticipated milk paint is HERE!  Stop by the shop when we are open next weekend (Oct 20th & 21st) to pick up your own and see samples in person.  If you are not local, check out our online milk paint shop to order!
