Milk painted dresser | More sign workshop dates!

 Dresser painted in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in the colour Typewriter. Signs painted in Bergere and Farmhouse White.

These signs have been so popular! I offered two workshops and 24 people registered within the first 24 hours. Yikes. That's kinda crazy! These super cool laser cut words will also be available for purchase online soon! 

Because they sold out so quickly, I have decided to add two more workshops dates: Thursday, May 24th and Tuesday, May 29th. If you are interested in attending, you can see all the details on my workshop page.

After I wrote my last blog post, I started thinking about this dresser. It has been kicking around my shop for quite some time now and I never got around to photographing it until a couple weeks ago when I dragged it over for sign photos. (Sorry, I couldn't find the before photo of it). In the next week or so I will be purchasing a new computer and I swear I am going to organize my photos properly this time. Does anyone else have that problem?

Anyway, this cute dresser is painted in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in the colour Typewriter and finished with MMSMP Hemp Oil. My friend, Jennifer, painted it for me and it was her first experience using milk paint. She loved it!

Apparently I am a little bit of a dork and I hung the "i love us" sign right over top of the great detailing on the dresser when I took the photo. Underneath the sign, it looks like this.

Some of the knobs were missing when I purchased the dresser, but I had some great little knobs stashed away that my friend, Penny, gave me. Penny pulled them off some old kitchen cabinets that were in a tent trailer that was destined for the salvage yard. 

Do you notice all the damage to the dresser above the knob? I really made a mess of the dresser and scratched it up when I recently hauled it to a home and garden show. You know how it is - I packed my truck very carefully on the way there so that nothing would be damaged, but after the show I slacked a little because I was tired and things got a little banged up. There is actually quite a bit of damage to other areas of the dresser, so it will be getting a new paint job. I might even change the colour!

What colour milk paint do you think I should paint it?
