Antique Side-By-Side

 This was my last 2 days project.  I have had this piece sitting in my garage for the past 6 months.  I picked it up from someone in Simcoe.  At the time, I was so excited to finish it, and then I just never got around to it!  Well, here's the finished product!

Miss Mustard Seed's 'Grain Sack'

Today I found that my local Home Hardware, where I purchase all my milk paint, now carries Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint line.  For those of you who don't know who Miss Mustard Seed is, she's who I aspire to be.  She owns a store, writes for HGTV, has a kick-ass blog, wrote a book, and just recently created her own line of paint.  All based around painting furniture.  Yes, she's my hero!

Painting over milk paint

The other day I had a request to change the colour on a hutch I had previously painted.  This was the piece that was in the magazine feature, and the customer wanted the exact hutch in a slightly off-white.  Despite our attempts to get her interested in another similar un-painted hutch, she was relentless.  So, I brought it into my garage and got started.

Barnboard Sign DIY

 This weekend I made a sign for my weekend out of an old plank of wood we found on the side of the road.  It was a project I completed for my newly decorated dining room.  I found an adorable green vintage clock at an auction, and found a larger replica at Ikea in the exact same colour.  So fun!  Below is a tutorial on how to do your own sign printing.

Milk Painted Piano

Today I painted my piano.  I'm working on redecorating my dining room, and this beastly piano was just so very unsightly.  So I thought, I paint everything else, why not the piano?  I mixed up some Homestead Blue milk paint, and away we went.
