MMS Typewriter Hutch Blizzard Project5:00:00 AM
Every blizzard needs a good project...
What else do you do when there is 2 feet of snow
outside your front door?
This is the before... I bought this piece sight unseen
from a Facebook group page.... They delivered it to my
front door and the price was right.
In the middle of my kitchen today...
while the rest of the family shoveled, I got started....
Because this oak hutch has a finish on it,
I'm using Miss Mustard Seed Bonding Agent in
my paint. I chose the milk paint color Typewriter because I love
the rich dark color.
The milk paint goes on very smoothly and
covered in just 2 quick coats...
Before it is sealed, the paint looks grey and chalky...
I'm leaving the inside of the top unpainted. The wood is
beautiful and will match the distressed edges of the hutch.
When the paint was dry I distressed the edges and random
surfaces of the hutch with fine grit sandpaper
Miss Mustard Seed Hemp Oil to finish the piece.
Hemp oil brings out the rich, dark color of the paint.
I wiped on the hemp oil, let it soak in, then wiped it off...
couldn't have been easier!
My blizzard project turned out so beautiful that I've decided to
keep this piece for myself... at least for a little while.
It got me out of shoveling too!
I loved working with the milk paint and look forward
to using it again with this fabulous hemp oil finish.
Need more milk paint inspiration?
I love Miss Mustard Seed's new book...
It has beautiful pictures of all the colors and
explains how to mix the paint as well as
how to use bonding agent and hemp oil.
It is a great resource for all things milk paint!
