I went out to the studio to paint something....anything...
This table has been patiently waiting for
some love and the cold inspired me want to paint it
sunshine-y and bright. The perfect choice?
What better than Miss Mustard Seed Yellow!
Because this was a spur-of-the-moment thing,
I started painting so quickly I didn't think about taking a before photo.
But take my word for it.
It was a hot mess of shiny enamel.
It was a small spoonful or two of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint,
likely a sample bag worth of Milk Paint.
I mixed it with my Mini-Whisk in a glass jar and was painting in minutes.
The next morning I painted the drawers and the top.
Just one coat is all it took.
Over the next few days I was busy on the computer updating
the online shop with a our new shipment of awesome stencils!!!
Excited to get back out into the studio, but with stencils on the brain,
I decided to stencil the top of the table
but instead of using paint, I used Miss Mustard Seed's White Wax
and the gorgeous Wrought Iron Panel stencil.
I couldn't be happier with the result
and even the sun came out to celebrate!
For the most part, I don't like crisp, sharp patterns,
so I planned on buffing out the top for a worn, aged finish.
However, this is something to consider when stencilling.
Not only should you plan placement and direction, but any overlapping
as well and how your pattern will continue.
Once finished stencilling with the White Wax,
I buffed right away to soften the overall look.
Next I used Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Wax on the legs and base
before adding White Wax on the drawers then adding
the Darling Dahlia knobs from our Knob Collection online.
Super fast. Super effective.
Stencilling with Wax may just become a thing around here!
