Mixing Milk Paint Video Tutorial

mixingmilkpaintbutton

I made several videos on using milk paint when I first launched the line, but they could use some updating.  First of all, it was just me in my basement with a camera on a tripod.  While I think there's something approachable and real about those, you can't always clearly see what I'm doing and that's the whole point of a video tutorial!  I was also very loosey-goosey about my instructions.  (read more …)

Before I get into the project, I want to share that Miss Mustard Seed's Glass Glitter (used in this project) is the Decor Steals daily "steal" today!  They are offering Tiara Silver, Fallen Snow and 14 Karat.  I've partnered with them for a long time, so it's fun to see them carrying a product with my brand on it.  As always, it's offered at a discounted rate due to their savvy shopping skills, so  (read more …)

Miss Mustard Seed-8657

I have been making German glass glitter letters for years.  See the old school watermark? I was so excited when I finally found German glass glitter and some great chipboard letters in amazing fonts.  I made them for myself in the beginning and then started making them to sell in my retail space and it was a staple for several years.

We launched our line of MMS German Glass Glitter just before Lucketts and, in such a busy time, I didn't get to announce it until after the fair.  Now that I've had the chance to catch my breath and get back into a bit of a routine, I'm ready to start giving you some ideas for how you can use the glitter and showcase the different colors.  Really, it's simple.  You can use it anywhere you want  (read more …)

French Style & a fabric wall

Master Bedroom | After

I received an e-mail a few months ago, asking if I would contribute to a new magazine, French Style.  Well, that sounds right up my alley!  Yesterday, I found the magazine in Target and snapped it up. First of all, it really is a beautiful magazine.  I loved looking through it and I felt so proud that I was a small part of it and I was very pleased with how my article and photographs turned  (read more …)

Antiquing & Waxing Video Tutorial

I had a chance to finish the foot board and rails of the "Bavarian" style bed I've been working on for our guest bedroom.  You can check out part 1 and part 2 to see how the bed got to this stage.  I'm excited to get it set up in the guest room and take some pictures of it in natural lighting, but here are some I snapped in the workshop.  And to show you the process I used on this piece, Jeff  (read more …)

Painted Guest Room Bed |

The weather has been amazing over the weekend!  Just a couple of sunny days in the 40's and 50's and I'm ready to throw open the windows and go out for a hike.  There's still a lot of snow on the ground, though, so I had to settle for a walk instead of a hike.  It's given me the shot of energy I need to finish home and work projects.  I was moving furniture around and cleaning out closets.  That's  (read more …)

Well, we finally got the camera and lights out and started making some video!  We shot this one on waxing last week and short some more today on mixing milk paint and the colors in the MMSMP line.  I can't even say how nice it is to have someone working the camera and taking care of the editing for me!  Jeff has taken up that role and has been soaking up all he can about using the equipment we  (read more …)
