I love thinking about how many little butts have sat in these chairs. As expected, they were quite worn and smattered with other signs of age like discoloration and little specks of paint. I knew I wanted to try to get a chippy finish with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, but I never know exactly what I’m doing when I get started on a project. This one was no different.
I quickly brushed on MMS Milk Paint in tricycle, and then started hoping for the chipping to start. It didn’t, so then I started sweating. I had a patchy-looking chair in front of me, with paint that was doing the opposite of what I wanted: it was sticking to the chair!
(Please forgive the horrible photography and shadows! You are probably catching on that I do all my projects at night, after I’m home from work and the girls are in bed. I’m clearly not the best photo editor, either. Hopefully you can look past it.
