Miss Mustard Seed Painted Hutch6:19:00 AM
I'm excited to have finally found a hutch that is
perfect for trying out Miss Mustard Seed paint on a large piece of furniture for the first time...
It's a great old hutch with simple, rustic lines.
I chose Shutter Grey for my virgin trial... before this
I used the paint only on small projects like
You can see from the picture, the paint started chipping
the minute the paint started to dry.
I love that old, antique look!
When I finished painting the bottom I used a
piece of fine grit sandpaper to lightly sand the hutch.
The paint in most areas easily chipped off
leaving the look of a beautiful time-worn piece.
I had a little spill... I accidentally kicked over
the bucket of paint but I used it right off the cardboard
so I wouldn't waste the paint. One thing I am not is neat.
I painted the top of the hutch Shutter Grey with
Luckett's Green on the inside.
Lucketts is one of my favorite colors but it
wasn't working for me on this piece.
I'm using this hutch as a display piece in my shop
and this look was a little too bright for my neutral style.
So I painted over the Lucketts with
Paris Grey Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Paris Grey is a very light color and immediately looked better
on the hutch with the Shutter Grey... which is truthfully
more of a light blue than a grey.
