Here’s the next color in my line of Milk Paint! I’d like to introduce you to “French Enamel.”
Here’s the dresser before…
(You can take a moment to revive the wood lover next to you who just passed out at the sight of this beautiful wood being painted.) I know it was beautiful, but it wasn’t in great condition and needed to be fully refinished or painted. So, I painted. I do love and appreciate beautiful wood, so I did refinish the top. I stripped it and wiped it down with two coats of Hemp Oil (an all natural product that will be carried in my line.)
The colors in my line are going to be named after things I love (like Shutter Gray) and this color is named after the French enamel pitchers that have always caught my eye. I own one, but was only able to afford it because the bottom is entirely rusted out.
Don’t worry. There will be colors in my line that aren’t blue! Up next….”Tricycle Red.”
Reni and I almost have the design for the paint labels nailed down and I’m so excited about the look. Things are starting to come together and I hope the line will be available in retailers and online by the end of June or sometime in July. There’s still a lot to do though. I’m having to put the paint line on the back burner for a few days while I’m making a final push to get ready for the Lucketts Antique Market. My mom and I went shopping today and found tons of cool things. There is still lots of pricing, sewing, upholstering, painting and refinishing to do, but we’re getting there. My hope is to have almost everything done by Thursday, so I can work on little things on Friday and get some rest before the event. We’ll see how that works out!
