I am so excited to share here at the Inspiration Cafe!! I have NEVER done a guest post before…….. But after this stellar appearance…..…I'm sure my inbox will be full of enticing offers to guest post all over blogland….right? I'll be polishing my resume while you read…... I sell Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint (here)….…thought I'd better say that first! But, I wouldn't sell it if I didn't love it and I do! There are 6, yes SIX new colors of MMS milk paint that came out this year! I have been working my way through the first 3 and am waiting to get the three newest this month. Today I am going to show you a project done in Artissimo but first I'll show you the previous projects……. Eulalie's Sky……(see post) Dried Lavender…..(see post)

Then two coats of MMS Ironstone with some bonding agent added.
I added stripes with my trusty Frog Tape…..
A word about Frog tape….WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
I'm Scots/Welsh background primarily and let me tell you….that means I can
squeeze a penny 'til it cries for mercy….seriously…...
I resisted the Frog Tape for a long time….too pricey…..but after several
striping disasters which required more fixing time than doing time….I bought a
Seriously…..the BEST STRIPES EVER!!!
Mixed up some Artissimo and painted…..I removed the tape and LOVED the look!!
Here it is before any other work…..
I gave it a light
sanding all over with a Scotch Brite….love those things for finish
I did a bit of
distressing but not too much. I let some of the white undercoat show
Two coats of Miss
Mustard Seed Furniture Wax….the best, really….so creamy, no odor, makes my hands
so nice and soft!!!
Or flaps down….it's too cute!!!
What do you think???
Big thanks to the
