Bespoke Boho Dresser

Bespoke Boho Dresser

My mahogany dresser is all finished and it was such a blast to refinish! This piece challenged me as a painter and it drew me into a style that I don't typically gravitate towards. It gave me the opportunity to experiment with mixing paint colors and break out my copper metallic wax. ...

A Victorian Piece in Tricycle

A Victorian Piece in Tricycle

When I last shared progress on my Victorian chest of drawers, this was about the state of things: It was propped up on a work table with a second coat of paint on it. In case you forgot what it looked like when I got it, here's how it started out: I started the makeover process by taking off...

Doubting Design Choices

Doubting Design Choices

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint can be a bit of an adventure. For starters, the paint comes in powdered form and is mixed with water. It has five simple ingredients, which makes it very different from other paints on the market. Its primitive and old...

Grain Sack Two Different Ways

Grain Sack Two Different Ways

In the flurry of painting activity this weekend, I finished two pieces using the same color - Miss Mustard Seed's "Grain Sack". I finished these pieces using two different techniques - a chippy finish with Hemp Oil and a controlled look with a wax finish Chippy Hemp Oil Finish The first...

Arabesque Martha Washington Sewing Table

Arabesque Martha Washington Sewing Table

My latest project is this Martha Washington sewing table. I ran a poll on my Instagram stories and asked what color I should paint it and a majority voted on the same color... Pink! This particular shade of pink is Arabesque by Miss Mustard Seed. It's dusty, muted and perfect for sweet little...

Depression Radio Cabinet

Depression Radio Cabinet

Today's post is short and sweet. Just like my latest piece! This beautiful depression era cabinet once housed a radio inside! If you pull the knob, the front folds down, revealing where it was stored. The radio is long gone, so I inserted some wooden crates to demonstrate how you could use this...

Bespoke Gray Nightstands

Bespoke Gray Nightstands

I'm always on the lookout for vintage vanities. They make perfect pieces to split apart into nightstands. A few weeks ago, I bought one from a fellow dealer at Morgantown Market and brought it home with the intention to turn it into nightstands. You can watch the process below....

Coastal Blue Hutch Cabinet

Coastal Blue Hutch Cabinet

I've had a few mahogany pieces queued up that required a darker paint color to avoid bleed through. General Finishes Coastal Blue Milk Paint is my go-to paint choice when I have a piece that needs high coverage. I've used it on my last couple of projects and it was the perfect choice on...

Fall Feels With Mustard Seed Yellow

Fall Feels With Mustard Seed Yellow

There isn't any other color that quite ushers in feelings of Autumn, falling leaves, cozy sweaters and riding boots like Mustard Seed Yellow. It's a rich and warm yellow that pairs well with warm wood tones, boxwood greens, orange accents, cotton wreaths and anything metal.  That's exactly...

Aviary Eastlake Dresser

Aviary Eastlake Dresser

9I finished off another piece that was in the batch of smelly furniture I purchased a few weeks ago.  (You can read more about that here.)  It was a gorgeous Eastlake dresser that was the least smelly of all the pieces.  I gave it the same cleaning treatment as...

Oval Coffee Table

Oval Coffee Table

People often ask me where I get my pieces from.  One of my favorite sources is actually one of my retail locations - Morgantown Market!  Several of my fellow merchants there have pieces either in their booths or in their personal stash that they are looking to offload.  This...

A Cottage Washstand

A Cottage Washstand

When I last shared my washstand with you, this was its status: It was all prepped and ready to receive a fresh coat of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint.  It had been through quite the transformation up to that point, even though it didn't look like it at first glance.  It no...
