Making Custom Milk Paint Colors
Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint is fun to work with. You never know what will happen. I mean, you have a good idea but the first peek at the finial result is always exciting. The Mustard Seed paint color is one of my favorites. The yellow is soooo perfect.
Mustard Seed Yellow Paint Color
I told you it was a pretty color. As you can see I went all out and did three colors on the radio cabinet.

I really like the old radio cabinets. They have so much detail and look great painted and distressed. This one was in pretty rough condition. Some of the veneer was missing on the doors so I peeled off the remaining bits and pieces.
I chose to be a little creative and finally came up with the French Provincial pulls from my hardware stash. I couldn’t believe how the creamy color of the door and the pulls matched so closely. I used a little key pull on one door and a drop pull on the other. I’m really happy with my choice.

I can truly say that looking and reading about your work on the mustard seed radio cabinet was every bit as good as eating my favorite candy. It is actually exciting to see what you will "release" from your work. You have an innate instinct about your projects -- true artistry at work. I am reminded of Michaelangelo's response when asked how he decides what figure to sculpt when he looks at his block of marble. His humble response: "I see the angel and I just release it from the marble." You also release the best in the pieces you do. After you finish, WOW! The yellow is deliciously fabulous --and I don't even like yellow!
Linda, You are too nice. Thanks for the great compliment but I don't fell deserving of such high praise. I love yellow and I wish the photos of that piece were a little better. My photography is slowly improving.Thank you for reminding me of this piece. It's been a while since I've done such an in depth project. I think I'm slacking!
How cool that used to be my radio cabinet!! Glad it got a new look and a new home 🙂 I did see it in the shop for sale it was cool.
