Did you know Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint can be used on decks, fences, garden décor, unfinished cabinets, and more!! If you’re like me you just think of going for the chippy look but Milk Paint bonds to unfinished wood for a smooth hard durable finish.
I’ve posted pictures and tutorials on my Tricycle Red Cabinet, Custom Paint Mix Pink Vanity, and Shutter Gray Display Hutch furniture makeovers but have yet to work on an outdoor project. I think that’s next!
MMS Milk Paint is available in 12 decorator colors and they can be mixed to make any number of custom colors. Marian, aka Miss Mustard Seed is working on 4 new colors to add to the line.
Jennylyn Pringle of Homestead House Paint Company, the manufacturer of MMS Milk Paint says “As much as Milk Paint offers a chippy look, it does so much more than that. You can get a perfect look from it, without chipping or distressing. It’s all about how you work with it, how you mix it and how you apply it. Versatility is very important, marketing this one product as only giving you the shabby chic look certainly won’t do it justice. Of course you will get the most durable finish and adhesion by using it on bare wood. Believe it or not, Milk Paint is actually the most durable paint when used this way, the Clay and Chalk and Limestone that is in the paint cements itself to the wood fibers and binds to the wood, making it next to impossible to chip. This paint will never peel if applied this way. IT will only ever peel if there is some sort of resist there not allowing it to penetrate into the surface. I should also mention that Milk Paint can be used outsides on decks, fences etc- I only recommend this when the wood is brand new, I don’t recommend the bonding agent for outside. However if used on bare wood outside, you’ll never get chipping or peeling issues, so re doing your deck just requires more paint. Over a very long time will it wear away. Always use a Hemp Oil or Tung Oil top coat for outside.
The largest clientele that we have are custom cabinet makers and kitchen manufacturers as the product gives a very nice hard wearing finish, when of course used on bare wood. The thing that I love about Milk Paint is that you can achieve ANY look you want with it, it just about the knowledge of how to do it!”
Wow, I didn’t know all of that, thanks Jennylynn!
