Hi! Did you see our segment on CTV Morning today? Thank you if you did, it’s pretty nerve wrecking doing DIY on LIVE tv. EEK

Wow live tv is FAST, 3 mins go like THAT! Phew.

Heidi rocked the milk paint – wow – super awesome painter, and the crew at CTV Morning are amazing. Thanks guys! We had so much fun (and sorry about spilling milk paint all over the floor of the studio…oopsie) Thanks to Mr. FPM for being the clean up crew this morning.

I accidentally spilled milk paint all over the cdv live studio floors...it's a thing oopsie

I mentioned a give away ….read to the end for your chance to WIN a little paint package from us!

If you didn’t see the segment, here is the clip for you to watch, no laughing!

Thank you and welcome if it’s your first time here. We’re pretty passionate about paint, diy and inspiring others to do so as well. We hope you will poke around the site and check out some of our DIY’s and get a little inspired.

As promised on air, I wanted to share a little about our upcoming retreat at White Point Feb 3rd to 5th. You can find all the information HERE and remember we only have a few spaces left, so act fast.

Beautiful White Point Beach Resort will be our home base all weekend while we DIY by the Sea

Our store is located at 1177 Hillsborough Road in Lower Coverdale (moving soon Mar 1 to downtown Moncton) and we have a satellite location at Mom’s Buy and Sell in Lunenburg where we sell painted furniture, FAT Paint chalk style paint and MMS Milk Paint.

Our Moncton location is moving soon…just FYI

Front Porch Mercantile is MOVING woo hoo

Looking for a little more HOW TO on the projects we did on air?

You can see how to stencil a pillow HERE

I don’t have a post or how to on the pallet sign. I will try to get one done soon.

It was an easy peasy project. We put a pallet together with leftover wood, you could use any board you have. Mix Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint (info here) in the colour Eulalie’s Sky, use a stencil, write a word or glue a wooden word (available at our Lower Coverdale shop), we like to use Wellbond to glue the word on. You can finish your painted piece with MMS Hemp Oil or our MMS Furniture Wax but you don’t have to. Step back and enjoy.

Our pallet sign was WELCOME, but it was like this. (Will post actual picture after show)

Now for the FUN part – we are giving away a sample box with a pint of Fusion Mineral Paint, a quart of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and a pint of FAT Paint, some how to guides and a few other tid bits.
