One of the amazing things about having a line of paint is seeing what people do with it. Sometimes people send me pictures of their work and it just knocks my socks off. When I received pictures of this kitchen by Atelier Du Vieux Pin (I can’t tell you how much I would butcher their name if I had to say it and not write it…) done in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint…well, let’s just say that I was barefooted after looking through the pictures.
Pretty amazing, right? I was blown away. Not only is the space, custom cabinetry and flooring amazing, but the milk paint finish is perfection. The Atelier Du Vieux Pin makes and designs French Canadian antique furniture reproductions and kitchen cabinets and they are true masters.
Anyway, I thought it was amazing and worth sharing.
Speaking of MMS Milk Paint, I do have some updates to share. First of all, three of our new colors are available for our retailers to order, so they’ll be showing up in our retail locations very soon! The first three that we’re releasing are Eulalie’s Sky…
…and Artissimo, which I haven’t formally introduced, yet. It actually looks a lot darker than this picture. It’s a deep navy blue, but I need to paint another piece and take some more pictures that are truer to the color.
Also, we’ve started to carry larger sizes of the Antiquing Wax, Furniture Wax, Bonding Agent and Hemp Oil. This is really nice for people who paint a lot of pieces (or something large like a floor or cabinetry. Ask your local retailer to order any of these products for you or order them directly through the Homestead House website.
Lastly, we are still accepting new retailers for the paint line. We’re looking specifically for retailers who love and use milk paint and want to teach workshops and those who can sell out of a shop they own or one where they have a strong presence.
