When I came across this little side/end table I was super excited as it is not a piece you come across every day and has some great storage for books or magazines. Like many things, it sat in my garage for some time, but I did manage to snap a before pic before I got to much paint on it. (more…)
I have had this chair for quite some time. I loved its bones and the detail work on it. It also had a rich brown color to it so I knew I wanted to pull that back through the paint. (more…)
So this is probably one of my favorite painted pieces to date. I have always loved these type of buffets but find they are usually priced high. I splurged a little on this one, but felt like it was a good investment. I love the bones! (more…)
Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint is now available at Consign to Design! We have all twelve colors available along with furniture wax, antiquing wax, bonding agent, and hemp oil. (more…)
I would like to start by saying I LOVE Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. It is VERY different than Maison Blanche Furniture Paint, which I am also extremely passionate about! For those of you that do not know, milk paint comes in powder form and you mix with water as needed. There are many note worthy reasons for using milk paint but here are the top three in my opinion… (more…)
Wow, it has been so long since I have posted a blog! It has been such a crazy few months between traveling and the family sharing illnesses. I have a lot of projects and an upcoming announcement to share in the near future so I hope to be blogging more!
Anyway, this is a small plant stand that I painted for a wonderful lady who took my paint class today. This table was so adorable and at one point belonged to her mother. It looked like it had been painted white at one point and yellow at another point with some gold accents and speckling. The paint was chipping and the client had repainted her space in the more neutral grey tones. So it was definitely time for some new life. Here is the before pic…
On this piece I actually sanded it lightly since the paint was pealing and you could feel the different textures on the surface. Usually the only time I sand is to make a surface smooth to the touch.
My client picked out a beautiful color called sugar cane with dark brown wax.
I applied 2 coats of paint. Let it dry and then added dark wax to give the piece an aged look.
I LOVE how the dark brown wax actually changes the color of the paint.
Once the wax dried, I buffed it and she was complete!

After months of sitting in our garage I finally did it! And here is the big reveal. I, however, forgot to take pictures of these pieces before I painted them. I have got to get better at this. I think I get so excited to paint that I just go for it and forget. Anyway, I bought this set to transition my three year old from her baby furniture to her “big girl furniture.” We painted her room a beautiful creamy yellow so I wanted her furniture to be white but I love the detail in this set so I really wanted to add some dark wax to the piece which totally changed the color of the paint. Well, I am in love with it and love the cream off white with the wall color and her new bedding. I was going to paint the hardware however I put a piece on there to try and decide what I wanted to paint them. When I put them on I decided to leave them just the way they are.
Here is a pic of the piece with the Magnolia paint before the dark wax.
I did not do any sanding to this piece, just gave it a good wipe down and got to work. I applied two coats in some areas and three in others for a very opaque look. I knew I was not going to distress at all so I wanted complete coverage. This is the first large piece I used with La Craie’s dark wax and LOVED it! You do not have to clear wax prior to dark wax nor do you have to use your clear wax to pull off the dark wax. I brushed a little on and spread it with a lint free rag. It goes on so much easier than other dark waxes I have used and really soaks in the paint. I love how much adding this wax changes the look of each piece!
And now for the matching chest of drawers…
