Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint is so popular in Europe that they have added a limited edition European colour line. As one of only 6 Regional Retailer Trainers in North America, I was excited to be one of the few retailers able to “test drive” the new European colour line. I was sent Layla’s Mint – swoon!
What a beautiful colour. All the European colours are muted, and warm. I just love them all, but I did have a special spot for Layla’s Mint, I have used a similar custom blend on similar pieces and this is just the perfect colour for me, and yes, it is named after THE Layla from The Lettered Cottage. For those of you that know Layla you know how giddy this makes me.
I had a sweet dresser I wanted to paint. We picked her up last summer and once we had her home we realized she needed a lot of TLC. Mr. FPM fixed her up and I could not decide what colour to paint her, so she sat for some time.
Then Layla’s Mint arrived and I just knew!
I didn’t use bonding agent and let her chip – and she did so beautifully!
I had stripped and sanded the top (it was a hot mess…there was a wax like coating on the top – good times) it was stained with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Curio and finished with Hemp Oil.
She is so pretty if I do say so myself. Love her lil lip, her pretty curvy legs on casters and crystal knobs! I’m in love with this colour, and I know my customers will love it too.
I think you will like ALL the new colours…it’s going to make picking colours even more difficult – sorry!
