When decorating the house for Christmas I thought how nice it would look with some fresh greens in it.
I decided to give this caddy a little sprucing up for Christmas.
I decided to use Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint for the project. I had only a few teaspoons left of each color so I thought I’d mix them all together to create a new shade and make use of the small left overs…
I found it to be a little too bright, so I added a few teaspoons of Typewriter that I already had mixed up for another project. For those of you not familiar with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, the color Typewriter is a flat black color.
Adding Typewriter to the mixture greyed it up a little and gave it more of a gritty tone turning it from “institutional” green to a pretty “vintage” green.
I gave it a light sanding and allowed the milk paint to chip off naturally. Then I finished it with Hemp Oil rather than wax as I might eventually use it outside in the summer and I don’t want the heat to melt the wax.
I have to admit that December has flown by for me at the speed of light this year! I am not even close to finishing my shopping and the shortbread cookies seem to disappear as fast as they come out of the oven!
Hopefully I will get my act together in time :)
Wishing you a calm, relaxed weekend with family and friends!
