Dresser in Miss Mustard Seed's Dried Lavender and Tufted Balloon Chairs

Confession time:

Recently, I stopped at the same Goodwill twice in one day. Yep. I did. I found a sewing table on my morning visit and these on my afternoon visit. You can judge me, but you'll also be jealous!




Last night I finished up this dresser in milk paint. I have to say, the first time I tried milk paint, I was so-so about it. The second time, I liked it more. And this go around, I loved using it.



This is the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint color of the month "Dried Lavender". It's a little to bright for me so I used her antiquing wax and absolutely love the color. More than I thought I would!!









Have you used Milk Paint? What are your thoughts?
This piece, and the chairs, will be available at Carver Junk Company during their April sale!

I love your Dried Lavender dresser. Found you via Miss Mustard Seed's FFF. I hope you like the Milk Paint - I'm hooked. I have lots of pieces I've made over and love the antique colours.
Have a lovely day. Sharon - from Australia.

I love the dresser! I painted a chest in Dried Lavender a few months ago and loved it. You're right, milk paint does take a little getting used to. The more I use it the more I like it. Great job !
