***After over 2200 suggestions, I have picked a name for our new color. Thanks so much to all who played along and the name will be announced very soon! ***
We recently added three colors to the MMS Milk Paint line and now we’re adding three more! Trophy (a rich gray), Curio (a walnut brown) and this one…
It’s a lovely coral color created by Abbe (our Primary Educator) and Jennylyn (president of Homestead House Paint Company). Now, if you know me at all, you know that I don’t have a bit of coral in my house, so this color is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I can’t have an entire paint line with just blues and grays!
Since this color is out of my wheelhouse, I am stumped when it comes to naming it and I need your help!
Share your suggestions for naming this color and, if I pick the name you suggest, you will win a Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint prize package from me! It’ll include three quarts of paint in the colors you choose, all three of our waxes (Furniture Wax, Antiquing Wax and White Wax), a wax puck, Bonding Agent and Hemp Oil.
Now, keep in mind the other color names in my line – Tricycle, Typewriter, Grain Sack, Ironstone, Lucketts Green, Eulalie’s Sky, Artissimo, Kitchen Scale, Shutter Gray, French Enamel, Flow Blue, Mustard Seed Yellow, Linen, Ironstone and Dried Lavender.
Most of them reference something personal to me, an antique/vintage item, something I use a lot in decor, etc. It’s a name with little bit of a story behind it.
So, if you’ve ever wanted to have the job where you name paint colors…here’s your audition!
