Another -14 degrees today.
I shouldn't complain. It is -30 in upstate Minnesota
... or as we call it here ... Up North.
What is a girl to do around here BUT PAINT
This is a corner in my living room.
I have this low - primitive table with a barn wood top.
It had been painted just a regular old brown.
I never really noticed it as anything other then a surface to vignette.
I'm sure you all have those tables.
Plain and unnoticeable.
I used the Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.
You can slap it on in the middle of winter - with all the windows closed - with No problems
This color is Apron Strings - freshly mixed. It only sat for about 10 minutes, after mixing, so the coral pigments didn't really have a chance to show themselves. I wanted the Chanel Pink tones to jump out at me.
After the first couple coats dried, I had a tiny bit of paint left so I mixed in some grain sack - which is the color close to white with gray tones (like the color of an old grain sack)
... anyway, it lightened the original color of the Apron strings.
I spent about 5 seconds dry brushing it on and wha-la
Actually not done... a topping of furniture wax and then done.
Fabulous little morning project.
If anyone is interested in the classes they are filling up, BUT we have room.
I am telling you - you will fall in love with this paint line.
