I am still working on a few things and this week I am busy getting ready for my daughters 13th birthday! I can hardly believe my baby is turning 13 where did those years go??
The room I have been working on is our bedroom.Our furniture is from the 90′s when pine was really in.I do love pine still.But the stain turned a bit to orange for me.It is amazing what a little paint will do!
For some reason I am having a bad time capturing the color of this.I hope I did a better job than my preview.Still learning how to use my camera.This is Miss Mustard seeds linen.The same paint I used on THIS piece.
As you can see this piece is not as chippy as my table.But that is how milk paint works when you are not using a bonding agent.You never know what it will do and for me that is part of the fun!It just chipped in a few places.I sanded it lightly because I wanted it to have more aging than the milk paint was providing.You can still see some of the wood through this.I added three coats and sealed it with Miss Mustard seed wax.
I like seeing a bit of the wood through this.I think that is why it looks a little blue in some of the photos.
Those are the same roses from my French pitcher used in THIS photo. Found that metal zinc tote at my antique shop.I discovered you can write on this with chalk!
That little step stool was also painted with Linen.I will be sharing bits and pieces of this room before the total reveal.
Off to get busy preparing for our party!What are you all up today?
