Hand Painted Cabinet

_MG_9089 2

We hand painted and distressed this vintage corner cabinet with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. We wanted to match our client’s pale blue damask wallpaper, so we mixed a custom color using French Enamel, Dried Lavender and Grain Sack. We added bead board paneling to the back of the cabinet to add even more country detailing. To finish and seal the paint, we used Miss Mustard Seed’s antiquing wax, and this stuff will literally give life to your milk paint projects! _MG_9095



There’s something about doing a milk paint project that is so serene and calming. Hand painting each carved leaf on this cabinet was almost meditative. The ease with which each flake of paint chips off in just the right place is so satisfying, as is the perfect soft sheen you get from polishing on the antiquing wax. With milk paint, it really just seems like you can’t get it wrong – the paint knows what it wants to do.

    Many people attempt to paint furniture, but only a few actually get the distressing right. This is how a piece should look when it’s done. The distressing is random and natural.
