I’m finally getting around to introducing another Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint color…




What else would I call my white?  For this piece, I’m so glad I finally got a lot of chipping.  All white pieces aren’t really my style, so I was hoping for lots of chippiness, which I got,  and I left the top and drawers wood.   Here’s how the piece started…

Up next…Grain Sack.  It’s a good one.
