Anyway, back home to reality. Before I left I had some DIY fun with a couple of small projects. One for the kitchen and the other for our back landing. The best part of this project is that while shopping for another project I stumbled upon these...
And so it began, my easy 2-hour project that has helped organize a few things around the house. I mixed up a batch of Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in Ironstone and Homestead House milk paint in Upper Canada green.
Let's start with the kitchen project first.
After two coats of Upper Canada milk paint and a light sanding to remove lumps.
Next I dry brushed a coat of Ironstone milk paint and once dry lightly sanded to reveal the Upper Canada green.
Then I gave it a coat of clear soft wax followed by dark wax inside the grooves, medallion and randomly over the entire surface.
Added three glass knobs and ta da!
A pretty little spot to hang my apron!
