This month has snuck up on me and it is moving way too fast. I feel both a sense of panic and a sense of relief at this point in August. Mostly just panic though. The summer days are dwindling and there are far too many things I’d like to accomplish in the next two weeks. It has been a busy summer nonetheless but there is still time to squeeze more in and try new things. Cook new things. Explore new places. Take more pictures.
Please summer, don’t go! We’re just getting acquainted…
One of my friends dove into milk painting this week. She is an experienced furniture painter but wasn’t into the notion of mixing her paint – a common objection with milk paint that can easily be overcome. Well she decided to try new things and it has really paid off for her!
Check out this beautiful washstand done in Apron Strings.
This coffee table went from mid-century to farmhouse with Mustard Seed Yellow.
This evening is the Petal Pushers floral design workshop at The Rhoads Garden in North Wales, PA. We still have a few spots open and would love to have you if you’re local. Come early so we’re sure to have a space set for you or send an email today letting us know you’ll be attending. Try something new!

love the apron strings piece, especially! so fun!
At first I thought, if I need to mix my paint, I might as well bake a cake ….. Lol Then I got this job where the furniture screamed Milk Paint because I needed to apply thin coats of paint almost like a wash and then distress to accomplish the aged look.
Now. I am loving milk paint and addicted to the warm farm house colors
Plan on trying a the colors. And I must say milk paint distresses much easier than chalk paint ….who knew?
