(Actually, if you don't know Miss Mustard Seed? I almost don't believe you.)
A few years ago, she inspired me to paint my Canadian flag dresser, and now she's done it again.
If you go to her site, you will see the inspiration for my dresser under her Milk Paint tab...it is the model for the paint color called "Typewriter."
I love that dresser.
It took me awhile to find the appropriate dresser at the appropriate price, but this summer I found one that was perfect.
Three drawers, flat front, and the right color!
I watered down the milk paint (Typewriter), to make it more of a glaze. I painted the entire case, but not the drawers.
I cleaned the drawers, and then taped on a piece of plastic that I had cut into a scroll shape.
(yes, those are my photobombing toes.) I made sure that the scroll curved around the knob, and I just traced around it with a Sharpie. Then I just flip-flopped it over to the other side and traced the other side.
I then painted inside the traced lines with the milk paint, added some little dot thingies (that's the technical term), and did a little bit of sanding to distress.
(Some day I will take good photos, but it won't be this week. I have to do this stuff in a hurry. Who has a half an hour to take a half-dozen pictures? Not this old broad!)
I used MMS Antiquing Wax on the whole piece...
I LOVE the way it turned out!
I think Miss Mustard Seed would, too!
