Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint Reveal - Day 4

It is hard to believe that it is already day 4 of our 5-day Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint reveal!  This week is flying past, but we are having so much fun thinking up exciting projects to do with MMSMP that a new notebook is required!

Today's feature is a colour named after an item that we adore as much as Miss Mustard Seed does -- French enamel pitchers.  They are elusive in Canada, but oh so lovely!

Without further ado... introducing "French Enamel":

Marian (aka Miss Mustard Seed) decided to test it on this lovely dresser and we got a kick out of what she wrote about distressing... that is how distressing it is to wood lovers that people like us will paint a piece like this:

Here is what she wrote:

"(You can take a moment to revive the wood lover next to you who just passed out at the sight of this beautiful wood being painted.)  I know it was beautiful, but it wasn’t in great condition and needed to be fully refinished or painted.  So, I painted.  I do love and appreciate beautiful wood, so I did refinish the top.   I stripped it and wiped it down with two coats of Hemp Oil (an all natural product that will be carried in my line.)

The colors in my line are going to be named after things I love (like Shutter Gray) and this color is named after the French enamel pitchers that have always caught my eye. I own one, but was only able to afford it because the bottom is entirely rusted out."

This beautiful colour leaves us speechless, in part because it sent Leanne to the realtor's looking for something akin to a French country farmhouse... it can be very quiet around here when she's gone! ;)

Stay tuned for another spectacular Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint Reveal tomorrow at On The Apple Box!
