If you’ve read many of my blog posts you know that I often mix paints to make my own colors. I think that’s one reason I like Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint. There is mixing involved!

The reason my MMS Milk Paint projects have featured the colors Ironstone, Tricycle, and Shutter Gray only is because those are the colors I received in my sample kit. The Milk Paint is being shipped, but there were so many retailers that it’s taking a while for everyone to get their stock. So for this project, me being me, I mixed the Ironstone and Tricycle to come up with two shades of pink.

I mixed the Ironstone and the Tricycle and THEN added a little Tricycle to the Ironstone to make the pink. Add a very little Tricycle color and stir, then add more and stir until you get the color you want. It only takes a little of the Tricycle red in a lot of Ironstone to make the pink color.

The paint started chipping after the first coat so I had to hurriedly do the second coat.

I decided to do something a little different and finished it with 2 coats of Minwax Polyacrylic in Gloss.

The drawers were in horrible condition so I painted the inside black and lined them with a trendy scrapbook paper.

    Hi love all your work! Quick question, what do you use to adhere the scrapbooking paper to your projects and do you seal it up?

      for the decoupage projects I use Mod Podge to adhere the paper and then cover with several coats of mod podge. I tried covering the paper with polyacrylic but I noticed after a few weeks that it began to yellow. For the scrapbook paper as drawer liners or on shelves I use glue dots or double sided tape. I figured if the buyer didn’t like the paper they could remove or replace it.
