Good Morning Sunshine!


I am so excited to share this project with you all!

This is my second project with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.
This time I chose Mustard Seed yellow-
The most perfect shade of sunny vintage yellow!



However first I must share the before:
{I always forget to take good before pictures.}

This piece had definitely seen better days.
It had deep scratches, a loose leg, and a thick rough finish.
But I knew under all that cracked varnish was some character and beautiful grain.

So after many hours of scrapping, sanding and far too many fumes,
the wood was back!

And all that elbow grease was definitely worth it!



I love key holes!

And the only thing that makes keys holes better,
it having the original skeleton key to lock it!
 
 This wardrobe had a mind of its own about the finish.
 But that is one of my favorite parts about milk paint.
I painted on two coats came back a few hours later and 
{surprise!}
Crackles!
I thought about scraping it to distress more 
but I ended up just sanding lightly and sealing with two coats of hemp oil.


 And if this wardrobe doesn't have enough charm,
it has a hidden surprise behind that lock and key...
Chalkboards inside!
{I mean who doesn't love a secret chalkboard!}
 I think this could make a great pantry too
for those of use with a lack of pantry space...


This may be my favorite piece yet!

However, sadly we don't have the space for it.

So this lovely wardrobe is looking for a new home.
Please contact me for details!

Thanks for stopping by!
