Exactly one year ago, Serendipity Shops of Doylestown opened its doors. The quaint, historic town of Doylestown has treated us all well and we are returning the favor this Friday, April 4th. Come celebrate the shop’s first anniversary from 6-8 pm. There will be food, drinks, deals and giveaways.
Yes, giveaways! Your chance to win free merchandise from one of your favorite boutiques.
I’ll be stopping by with some new spring treasures including this adorable Apron Strings + Linen milk painted dresser.
I have been painting up a storm lately and have been inspired by nature and bright spring colors.
The April colors of the month are Dried Lavender & Lucketts Green. Yes, two this month. They’re that good.
I’m loving the texture on this old, oak dresser. Sorry for the shadows and lack of staging. I was anxious to move onto the next project!
Speaking of, check out the layering on this ladder back chair.
The base layer is in Apron Strings, my current fave. It’s so feminine on these pieces. For the chair, I created a resist with hemp oil and mixed a coat of French Enamel and Linen which actually sort of resembles dried lavender. I love mixing leftover colors. You never know what you’ll get. Isn’t the crackle effect fabulous?
All of Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint colors are in stock at Serendipity. Stop by for the party tomorrow evening. Let’s talk colors, technique and top coats. Or just shop for clothes. Either way, it will be fun!
Serendipity Shops is located at 33 S. Main St. Doylestown, PA
