farmhouse white ticket & reviving old metal

Marian ParsonsAntiques, Cleaning & care, Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint

If you haven’t noticed, I am just a little excited about our new MMS Milk Paint color, Farmhouse White.  I’ve been into white lately, anyway, but I’m just so in love with the tone and coverage of this paint.  It’s a winner.

Launching the color in the usual way just didn’t seem like enough.  I got this idea that it would be fun to offer a “golden ticket” style giveaway as we launch this color.  I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a scavenger hunt?  A hidden surprise tucked into a product?  The suspense of opening each bag, thinking it might be the one!


So, somewhere out in the US, there are two $250 USD Farmhouse White Tickets hidden in two bags of Farmhouse White milk paint!  The ticket will work like a gift card that you can spend on any MMSMP products, colors, finishes, brushes, etc. that you want.

AND, we don’t want to leave our international customers/readers out of the fun, so we’ve hidden tickets in Canada, Europe, UK and Australia/New Zealand as well, but the prizes will vary by market, because of currencies, etc.  Each ticket will specify the prize and how to claim it.

This is what the tickets look like…

…but the genuine ones have some special touches, so we know they are the real deal when redeemed.

The tickets are actually inside a bag, so you’ll have to open it up to see if you won.

Farmhouse White is starting to hit the shelves, so go out and grab a bag. (Call your local retailer for availability to make sure it’s in stock.)

Who will find a ticket?


I fully acknowledge that I beat the Hemp Oil drum pretty often.  I love all of our products, but I think this one is the most versatile and easy-to-use.  It can be used as a finish for milk paint…


…for raw or stained wood…


…and to revive wood that is dried out.


…but it can also be used to give life to old rusty, crusty metal.  Remember this fan?


I posted about it a few months ago and, finally last week, Kriste pulled it out of the stash and gave it a little rub down with some hemp oil…


It still has a great wear and patina, but it looks a little cleaner, glossier and less like it was just hauled out of a barn.


Which it probably was.

Hemp Oil is food safe, so you can use it on cast iron pans, too!

Happy three day weekend…
