Furniture Painting Workshops

Painting Furniture {Using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint}

There are so many types of paint out there these days!  And everyone claims that theirs is the best!  But I love getting to use and play around with Cece Caldwell’s  and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paints and I’m in love with all that they can do!  Painting furniture has never been so fun!  Just check out this piece we did this past Saturday at Allison’s furniture painting workshop with all it’s pretty details and lovely “chippyness”!

 

I was SO excited to get to the workshop that I completely forgot to take a before picture, but here’s a before picture of it’s unpainted companion piece.  If you haven’t taken one of Allison’s workshops yet, it’s a must!  It was so much fun getting to paint and be creative; and Allison was there to help answer those questions that I seem to have at the worst times!  I hadn’t played around much with Miss Mustard Seed colors, so when we got the chance to choose, I jumped at the chance use Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paints.

This piece had an ugly under layer (as you can see) and I was concerned that if it flaked it would be hideous!!!  But Allison urged us to just go with it and the outcome was awesome!  Boy was she right!

Miss Mustard Seed paint is awesome!!!  It goes on so smooth, I love that it’s a surprise how it’ll turn out, and I love getting to watch it flake!  It just makes each piece so unique and special!

This piece was painted in Shutter Gray.  And finished off  by waxing it with Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Wax, and followed that up with Miss Mustard Seed’s Antiquing Wax to give it an aged look and bring out the texture in the piece.  If you haven’t used her wax, you absolutely have to!  It goes on like butter and feels so smooth to the touch!  I love it!  And did you know that her wax smells like lavender?!?!  Uh, yes please!

Kassi came all the way from Canute, Oklahoma!  She brought her mamma and this pedestal table with her!

Using Traverse City Cherry and some funky distressing she gave her piece of furniture a new future!

Kassi’s Mamma painted her table in CeCe Caldwell’s Omaha Ochre, sealed it with Endurance, and then dry brushed some Miss Mustard Seed’s Antiquing Wax in all of the cracks and crevices for good measure!

Dian’s adorable end table had a hard life, was left in the elements, and had been passed down for generations.

Using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Mustard Seed Yellow and then sealing it with Hemp Oil she turned this table into a class favorite.  I think she even got a few offers to purchase it during class – but she stayed strong and kept it for herself!

Shannon brought a little yellow chair from Pottery Barn.

She was full of creativity and did lots of layers of Vintage White, Young Kansas Wheat, Aging Dust, and Clear Wax tinted in Copper Pigments to achieve this look.  She really stepped outside of her comfort zone and I was just beaming with pride when she was done!

Kristen hauled in a thrift store end table that had some great curvy detail.

She kept it simple and elegant by using Vintage White and Aging Dust to accent her detail.  Kristin is the owner of the Etsy Shop Thats A Hoot and sells custom burlap and mesh wreaths. I should have know she was going to shine in the creativity department!
