I love using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. Since the milk paint is non-toxic it is the perfect medium for me to paint indoors while my young children are napping. I love vintage pieces and I love giving them a new take on life Milk paint is especially beautiful for vintage pieces because it really allows the original character and charm to shine through.
Today’s milk paint project is part of my design makeover for my children’s shared bedroom. When I decided on my vintage-inspired color palette, I knew I wanted to incorporate Miss Mustard Seed’s Tricycle Paint into the design plan. On a recent visit to my parent’s house, I noticed a vintage dresser sitting on their porch that they were willing to part with and today’s blog post tutorial was born.
The original dresser spent some time in my parent’s outdoor shed on their farm so it was a little beat up, and needed a great cleaning. I saw past that and was excited to put a piece that once lived in my childhood home into my children’s “new” room. I love the money I saved, and the character and story my children’s “new” piece tells.
I love how it turned out and I hope this tutorial inspires you to bring a piece of furniture that isn’t making you happy back to life, or to save some money and re-imagine a used piece versus buying new. I love how the milk paint brings this dresser new life, and my children love it even more!
