another MMS Milk Paint project ~

 Hello there!

I completed another piece in the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint the other day and wouldn't ya know, I got a totally different result than the first try!  This paint is certainly random and unpredictable!  Makes the process kinda fun!

I had splurged on a set of old handmade primitive style drawers recently.

I love me some drawers!

 sorry, drawers already removed, but you get the idea

 So I mixed up my ironstone milk paint and brushed it on.  This piece was very shiny, probably heavily varnished.  I was crossing my fingers that I would get flaking, and almost instantly, I started seeing this..........


 After two coats of paint and after brushing it off and vacuuming it, this was the super chippy flaky look I was achieving.......


 It truly looks like layers and layers and natural chipping and wear.  Very cool!

Now that it's all transformed, it's for sale at the shop..........

You may have noticed that one single drawer decided not to flake!

What do you think about the original hardware?

 The interior of each drawer is different, a few of them have cubbies!

I know it looks small in the photo, but it is a pretty sizeable set of drawers.

Dimensions: 25" wide, 18" deep, 32.5" tall

Just $199 at Georgie Emerson Vintage!
