I’ve only used Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint a couple of times, but I am in love! I am having so much fun exploring different techniques and the finishes they create. Here’s the latest update to a tired game cabinet up at our cottage.
I actually didn’t bother to try to feather in the plug marks with wood filler, nor did I even fix the uneven knobs. (How lazy is that?? I’m going to write it off as busy rather than lazy. There’s still a lot to do up there, and I just couldn’t justify spending too much time on this project during our last visit. Please don’t judge.)
I painted her with a mix of two parts French Enamel and one part Luckett’s Green. I’m a big fan of the color – perfect for a little lake house cottage!
I used the last part of the paint (there was maybe about two tablespoons leftover) and then added a little bit of Ironstone and water to create a wash. It just lightened it up a bit and gave it a little extra depth.
