Ushering in Fall with Miss Mustard Seed’s “Mustard Seed Yellow” Milk Paint
Mustard Seed Yellow is a color that I don’t use often enough. It has a buttery sunny goodness that fills me up with joy every time I mix it up. Since Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, I thought I’d usher in Autumnal feels with my latest piece from the workshop using Mustard Seed Yellow Milk Paint by Miss Mustard Seed.
Mustard Seed Yellow
Mustard Seed Yellow is currently the only yellow in the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint collection.
This buttery shade hits all the right notes. It’s not too neon or fluorescent, and it doesn’t lean too gold. It looks lovely when topped with any of the finishes in the MMS Milk Paint line, but my favorite is Hemp Oil.
Hemp Oil brings out the richness and depth of each MMS Milk Paint color. The golden goodness of Mustard Seed Yellow gets brought to life just perfectly when I use this oil finish.
Not only did I apply it over the Milk Paint, but I also used it on the original handles too!
Staging With My Favorite Things
Staging my furniture for photos is a skill that I am constantly working to improve. I’m part of a refinished furniture tour on Instagram that is providing me with lots of inspiration and good ideas to tuck away. When I stage a piece, I like to use props that are as period-appropriate as possible. Most of my props are from Morgantown Market.
Such was the case with the items I picked for this piece.
These old brushes were begging to be displayed in a collage. It took me a few tries to get their arrangement just right. And since I wanted a Fall feel to my photo, I thought the amber bottles, willow branches and straw hat would give off the right vibes.
To balance the left side of the photo, I tucked in an antique caned rocking chair that has the sweetest patina!
Miss Morgan’s Milkweed Antique & Artisan Show
I’m participating in Miss Morgan’s Milkweed Antique & Artisan Show again this year. It runs October 2-3 and is going to be held at The Lebanon Expo Center in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. This piece is one of a few that will be coming with me.
After the market last year, I decided that I would focus more on Milk Paint for future events at this location and less on the “stuff” like furniture and home decor.
I’m not taking anywhere close to the amount of furniture that I did last year.
You do need some though to showcase what Milk Paint can do, so this yellow washstand will be my splash of color!
