Three nesting tables | Three different looks

End table painted with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Ironstone and waxed with Furniture Wax and Antiquing Wax

Sometimes between working full time at my other job, running my shop (more like playing and chatting in my shop), packing and shipping out orders and all the paperwork that goes along with being a small business owner, my life is completely overwhelming. Wow. I think that is seriously a run-on sentence.

Anyway, I am trying my best to blog at least once a week and so far so good. I have a sign on my office wall that says "She did because she believed she could." Maybe I need to hang that sign in my laundry room because I could use some motivation in keeping up with my laundry.

Set of three nesting tables - two are painted with Miss Mustard Seed's milk paint.

This set of nesting tables has been kicking around my shop for awhile. It's a great way to show off what you can do with milk paint! The bottom table shows the original dark finish. The middle table is painted in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Ironstone and top coated with MMSMP Furniture Wax

The top table is also painted in Ironstone and top coated with Furniture Wax. Then to step it up a notch, it was then waxed with MMSMP Antiquing Wax

My friend, Karen, painted these tables for me. If you visit my shop for too long, you too are at risk for being sucked into helping me paint. That's basically what happened to poor Karen. I really have the most amazing friends in the world!

There are some pieces of furniture that are just meant to be finished with Antiquing Wax and this was definitely one of them. I think it's way more charming than the original wood table and the plain white table. Don't you?

I love simplicity! Hyacinths in a mason jar.

Aren't these Hyacinths gorgeous? My pal, Kate, from The Urban Farmchick came for a visit and surprised me with them. I love flowers in a mason jar. Sometimes simplicity can be so beautiful.
