Wash Stand in Kitchen Scale

My first attempt at painting with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint was a huge success!
First of all, I ordered the paint from Robyn Story Designs.
They were so fast and friendly, I will definitely be ordering from them again!
I think I'm in love with milk paint...
Here is the "before" photo of this cute little wash stand I've had for a while now,
not knowing what to do with it...
I thought it was the perfect candidate for the "chippy" look milk paint is famous for...
Strangely enough, it hardly chipped at all.
Still, the chippy look was what I was going for,
 so I coaxed more of the paint off with my putty knife...
I waxed it with MMS Furniture Wax, which I LOVED.
It went on so smooth and easy!
And I used a bit of her Antiquing Wax as well.
Did I mention this color is "Kitchen Scale?"
It's absolutely lovely, I can't keep my eyes off of it.
I think I'm hooked on milk paint.
33 1/2" wide, 30" tall, 18 1/2" deep
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Just perfect! Love that wax too, so creamy! So far it's held up on my dresser/tv stand, I wonder how well it will wear on higher use pieces?

  2. Oh, I like MMS too. Do you think her wax would work on my chair you painted with ASCP? I wish I hadn't just bought a vanity for my downstairs bathroom. With a glass top and wash basin, this would have worked perfect.

  4. Once I finally got the mix right, I fell in love with MMSMP too! Love this piece!

  5. Hi Danielle,
    I love this color and the piece is gorgeous. I've only tried the milk paint on one piece and wasn't crazy about it, but I think after seeing this and your tricycle buffet I'll have to try it again. Congrats on the feature!

  6. That is a lovely colour and a great piece. I found my way over tonight from the link on Homestead House Paint on fb.


Comments make my day!
