So In between snuggles and naps, I'm showing off and trying to catch up on pieces I haven't blogged about yet. I'm behind. Very behind in blogging. I've thought about leaving it all together...but when I get comments and messages from people who take the time read my ramblings here..family and friends or people I only know through blogging....passing on encouragement or asking how's it going, coming in the shop and referencing my posts: I leave the idea of leaving behind instead, because I appreciate every single person who takes their time to read my rambles and support me..and I like to ramble: so, lets keep at'er!
Here we go:
I painted this hutch (I snagged from the Dashwood Firemen garage sale (with fireman delivery)--Score!) with one of my very favorite paints: Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in my new very favorite color:
She had hung in the back of the shop for the last month or so with no one looking at her....Now, she's a showstopper in the front!
I used every topcoat available to me on this piece. White wax, clear wax, dark wax, hemp oil and shellac:

I madly love Milk Paint. Besides being 100% eco...Milk Paint gives a nostalgic, rustic, color tonal look. Even when I don't create the chippy look, it makes pieces look naturally worn, like I painted it a long time ago..lived with it, used it, loved it, made memories around it, when really....I just finished it on Tuesday...
The back wall of the hutch and the inside of the drawers, I recovered in slightly metallic gold paisley fabric that my Mum gave me in her care package from home..It.Was.Perfect.
Homestead House Paint Company, which makes Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint featured her on there Facebook Page..which is, simply, exciting! It was tough one to take good photo's of, so Im happy that the gist of how awesome she turned out came thru.
