Chippy White Goodness!!!
So I finally finished up my cabinet in the living room.
This is what it looked like before
I painted it with a mix of what I had on hand.
I had some Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Ironstone.
But I didn't have a lot of it...so I mixed it up and added a pint of Valspar paint to it.
I lightly sanded first and then cleaned the cabinet up with vinegar.
I did too good of job sanding and cleaning because she didn't chip at all.
Perhaps she would have if I hadn't mixed paints.
Probably would...but I wanted to use what I had.
So I sanded the dickens out of her.
Then I used Miss Mustard Seed Furniture Wax on top.
It's a beautiful smooth finish.
Knobs came from Hobby Lobby.
This pretty orchid?
I confess I bought it at work the other day.
I said I wouldn't be buying much there but I could not resist this sweet small orchid
in a silver container.
So yesterday at work one of the Vice Presidents of the company
came up to me and said,
"We were all looking at your blog this morning."
I was like...you were? How did you know I have a blog?
He said every morning they check to see what is being said about Bob Mills
Furniture on the internet and up popped my blog.
Thank goodness he didn't have a problem with me promoting the store.
I didn't think they would.
