Beautiful Flow Blue

 

I am breaking away from my standard whites to play with Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint. 

Last summer I ordered the retailer starter kit and anxiously awaited it’s arrival.    Unfortunately for me, 2 days before it arrived I fell and sprained my ankle.  I was completely out of commission for 3 months.   Then along came winter, yada, yada……   So now I’m ‘playing’!

 

I can be a little color shy so I started out with a small piece.

So here I go again with no real before.  I had already sanded the top when I thought to get a picture.  I don’t know about anyone else but sometimes I get myself in a tizzy when choosing colors – it’s very annoying.  It’s not like I’m paint the Sistine chapel or anything.  Jeez.

I opted to stain the top (dark walnut) and paint the rest in MMS Flow Blue.

What a gorgeous color!

Finished it up with some Hemp Oil.

Here it is installed in the shop.    The photo isn’t very good because the sun ‘got in the way’ but………

lovely, I am really liking the partial paint and leaving some wood surface. I am hoping to do a piece like that soon.

it's not the Sistine chapel, but it is gorgeous:) I am really liking blue lately and that blue is really nice.

Love the legs on that little table.
