we're looking forward to the arrival of our full shipment of 'Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint'
in the meantime, we received our sample box, 'Ironstone' 'Tricycle Red' & 'Shutter Gray'
i had the perfect small table to try it on.
the table had a water ring & a few other spots on the top that the paint wouldn't cover(sorry there's no before photo) this photo is after 2 coats of paint, i really didn't expect the paint to cover the spots & water ring. this paint is great for pieces you want to look distressed & the quirks of the wood add to the charm of the piece.
i worked with what i had, keeping the top distressed, but wasn't sure what i wanted to do yet.
looking at the color,'Ironstone' reminded me somewhat of a linen towel or grain sack, so that's what i went with...
'Tricycle Red' stripes
'Shutter Gray' stencil
went over the top with a sanding block then finished with clear wax.
love the grooves in the legs
It's the perfect size for a small writing desk!
