Before and After and More Space!

Hello everyone! I have been busy getting ready for the arrival of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint!

Today, I spent the day painting and waxing a few things and tidying up my space. I took over a little more space, which is where I will soon be displaying the Milk Paint. It will be here in August, but I do not have an exact date yet. If you would like to Pre-order, you can here:

Ok, now for the good stuff... Pictures! This little yellowish table had great lines and amazing metal grates on the side, very Frenchie. I painted her with Chalk Paint™ decorative paint in Paris Grey (of course!) with Old White accents. I slightly distressed with a fine sanding block and finished with Annie Sloan Soft Wax.

I also finished up a great vanity, painted in Antoinette and then Old White. The Antoinette came through when I sanded and it makes it look just perfect for a little princess!

Chalk Paint™ in Florence!

Hello all! I didn't get a chance to post this when I did it, but here she is now. This is a sofa table that was a total manufactured, comes as a set in a box type of piece. My amazing hair dresser gave it to me along with the matching side table. I got them just when Florence was released, so I figured they were the perfect pieces to test it out on.

Florence is very bold and bright. It almost has a hunter green look to it, with some turquoise. I LOVE it. Especially with some dark wax!

This sofa table was a shiny finish, but was all kinds of Florence in just 1 hour and one and a half coats of paint. I then heavily distressed it and followed up with a dark mixture of Clear and Dark wax - yep, I mix my wax and apply all at once! After some buffing, she was ready to go!

Big News!

Yes, its true! I will soon be a retailer of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint! 

Of course I will still be carrying Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan. These are two completely different products and I will be explaining more in the future. In the meantime, be sure to check out Miss Mustard Seed's Comparison

I will be selling Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint out of Vintage Begonia in Temecula, CA. It will be available in August. Until then, please feel free to pre-order through my Etsy shop. I am busy setting everything up and trying to get things in order to take over more space at Cottage Charm. It is crazy to think that just a little over a year ago I was only wanting to paint my buffet, and now this is my life. I love it!
