  11. I never got a post for Saturday, so I went to Miss Mustard Seed’s blog on SUNDAY and found this giveaway! Maybe someone at MMS will take pity on me and let me in on the giveaway anyway???
    Pretty Please??? In the meantime, I need to figure out why that happens, and it does seem to happen a lot! Would love to go to MN for some great junk though.

  12. Janet Lawson says:

    Loved the video..I learned a lot..

  13. Bags are packed and ready to go.

  14. Thanks for the tutorial! Can’t wait to get the paint. I love the randomness of it. You just can’t achieve that look with sanding. (Don’t worry about entering me into the contest, I’m way too busy this time of year to go, but I just wanted to thank you for the tutorial.)

  15. I am planning on attending for the first time and I am very excited!!!

  16. Thanks (again) for the tutorial! Am wondering how you feel about using “paste wax” on your pieces once you’ve painted them with chalk paint?? I know you talk about paste wax in your waxing tutorial but not sure if you still feel confident using the paste wax with the chalk paint (specifically) or does the chalk paint require the more expensive wax?

    As always, thanks for any help you can give me!

  17. Sarah Pfeffer says:

    I live close by and have never gone….would LUV to check it out!!!!!

  18. donna doeden says:

    Junk Bonanza is fantastic!!! So fun and the vendors are wonderful!

  19. Marissa Ciovacco says:

    I have a question….If you want to use the milk paint and hope for the chipping to happen, but the stain underneath is not a nice dark that would show through, but instead more of a red…..Is there something you could do? I am a beginner here! Thanks for all your tutorials! I can’t wait to try the milk paint…..

  20. Robin W. says:

    I know it’s too late – but I just have to try…..pick me pick me!!!!

  21. Jaclyn says:

    This is an awesome giveaway. I’d be coming from AZ, but I’d figure out a way to make it there if I win!!

  22. Shan Dudley says:

    Oh, I so love junk! And, I so love your blog, mms!

  23. I know the giveaway is done but I still needed to take a moment to say that I LOVED this tutorial. You are such a natural and I’m sufficiently (I think), motivated to paint with some milk paint. Can’t wait to hear where I can get it online.
