We’ve met and posted about our “idol” in the furniture painting business before. It is the lovely and talented Miss Mustard Seed, as she is know in the blog world. She has quite a following online for her creative blog and for the work she has done in the furniture painting business. Her very own line of Milk Paint Colors was developed by her and is produced by the Homestead House Paint Company.
Marian aka “Miss Mustard Seed”
Both Miss Mustard Seed and Homestead House has impressed us with their integrity and excellence in conducting business and we are thankful that they crossed our paths, and that we can learn from them.
After some time of dreaming to become retailers for the MMS Milk Paint Line, we finally opened a small store and now are proud to announce, that we are fully stocked in this awesome line of milk paint. Coming in March of 2014, we will also be offering workshops in the use of MMSMP.

The colors are Ironstone, Linen, Grainsack, Kitchen Scale, French Enamel, Shutter Gray, Mustard Seed Yellow, Boxwood, Lucketts Green, Tricycle, Flow Blue, Typewriter, Dried Lavender, Artissimo, Eulalie’s Sky, Trophy, Apron Strings and Curio.

Here are some of Miss Mustard Seed’s handy work of projects that she has finished with her Milk Paint line. How gorgeous and inspiring…
Now, allow us to show off our hand painted, 1920s, tall dresser, named “The Little Old Lady” We found her at an estate sale in a tiny, almost forgotten little town, on a windy road in Sussex County, NJ. It was finished in Boxwood and no bonding liquid was added to the milk paint, so that we could achieve this wonderful chippy look. Boxwood is the color of the month for December, for the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line.
“The Little Old Lady” finished in Boxwood.
We thought that the “chippy look” was a perfect match for this gorgeous “old” piece.
