Say Hello to "Shutter Gray"

By Miss Mustard Seed on May 10, 2012

I’m so excited to introduce the first color in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line…”Shutter Gray.”


So, maybe you’re wondering why I’m calling it Shutter Gray.  I’ve decided to name the colors in my line after things I love and decorate with.  I have a few awesome chippy gray shutters, so when I thought of a name for gray, shutters immediately came to mind.




My gray has a bit more blue in it, but that’s the way I like my grays!



The piece I tested it on is a gorgeous French chest-on-chest I picked up last week.





…and the milk paint did the awesome thing it does…



The piece wasn’t bad to begin with at all.  It was just a little….orange.


I love how this dresser (and the color) turned out.  I’ll be bringing it with me to sell at the Lucketts Antique Market (May 19-20.)

More milk paint colors and furniture makeovers are in the near future!
