Join us for a special event!

I am excited to share a special event that we will be holding in Thunder Bay at Superior Shores Gaming. They have invited me to use their wonderful facility for a couple painting workshops. To step it up a notch, they are even providing us with FREE appetizers, coffee and tea. Sweet! They are a licensed facility so you can even purchase other types of beverages. (You know what I mean haha.) You must be 18 years or over to attend.

We will be playing around with milk paint and making these large signs. 

Believe it or not, I am actually teaching these workshops! Normally Karen teaches most of our workshops, but I will be teaching these ones. My sister, Sheila, will be visiting me from Winnipeg and she will be assisting me. She is quite knowledgable about milk paint and the two of us are usually pretty entertaining. At least we like to think we are!

 Laser cut words available online at My Painted Door

You will have a variety of laser cut wood words to choose from including: welcome, i love us, farmhouse, dream, gather and blessed.

Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint has a new colour! Meet Aviary!

 Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in the colour Aviary is available on-line at My Painted Door. We ship anywhere in Canada and the U.S. Visit our website for a wonderful selection of furniture paint! Our shop carries Fusion Mineral Paint and milk paint.

I would like to introduce you to Aviary! This lovely smokey blue gray is a wonderful new addition to the Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint line.

I had my fingers crossed that I would have it available this weekend in my shop, but my shipment won't arrive until Monday. Monday is the official launch date - so it's all good! I do have it for sale on my website already and should be able to ship it out on Monday or Tuesday at the latest (I am relying on my courier pal to deliver it early enough on Monday, but sometimes he comes late in the day). I love my courier pal, especially when he brings new paint colours or new products!

There is always a story behind every new colour introduced into the line and I love this story! A few years ago, Marian (aka Miss Mustard Seed) bought this antique birdcage. Marian loved the colour ...

I'm guessing  you know this already, but milk paint comes in a powder form and is mixed with water. If that intimidates you, don't worry - it's easy to mix! My tips and tutorials section of my website has lots of great information about milk paint including some wonderful videos by Marian.

So, do you love Aviary as much as I do? What would you paint with it?

Join us for a milk paint workshop!

 Learn how to paint furniture - Curiosity cabinet and accent table painted with Homestead House Milk Paint in the colours Niagara Green and Champlain.

It's workshop time!

You have been asking for larger home decor projects and we have delivered! Karen and I have come up with some really great ideas and we are excited to start this round of workshops. 

We worked with a local carpenter to have all of these pieces custom made. Rick is amazing and his workmanship is top notch!

We'll be using milk paint for these projects because we love it and it's eco-friendly! We painted all of our sample pieces in shades of blue, but you can choose from over 60 colours during the workshop. 

Today I am sharing some quick photos of our workshop projects. If you want to read more of the nitty gritty details, you can head over to my workshop section of my website.

In the next couple weeks, I will write up some blog posts about these projects which will include the colours we used, techniques, etc. I realize that many of you visit my website from all over the world and can't visit my shop or attend a workshop. But wouldn't that be super cool if you could? Wow, that would be a dream come true! Imagine a group of painters getting together from all over the world in my little shop.
