What'cha Workin' on Wednesday?!?

It's Wednesday my friends - let's do this!

First up this week is a great little end table restyled by Kate. Using Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint in Typewriter black Kate, brought this table from shabby to classy! She finished the table with a bit of distressing and some hemp oil and it looks great! Thanks for sharing Kate!

This one is from a while ago but definitely deserves to be shared! Check out this old stereo cabinet restyled by Elisa. Such a nice neutral colour! If the stereo is still in there - how fun is that? And if the stereo has been removed - amazing storage! It' a win/win! Thank you so much for sharing Elisa!

Next up this week is Christine's restyled buffet - turned TV console. How fantastic is this? Painted in van Gogh's Patina (a most popular colour at our studio), this buffet looks so pretty! How clever of Christine to remove the top drawer and use the space for her TV components - great work! Thanks for sharing Christine!

Last up but definitely not least this week is Chantal's adorable restyled school desk. Chantal used Miss Mustard Seeds' Tricycle red and two new handsome little knobs from us. I love it! Such a bold beautiful colour - thank you for sharing Chantal!

Seeing Red - Miss Mustard Seed style.

This chair was restyled a while back and oh how I do miss her! This wooden desk chair on castors was the perfect match of comfort and style. The chair was pretty much bare wood when she arrived as most of the original finish had worn right off. I think the beautiful red 'Tricycle' in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk paint line was the perfect colour choice!

Once this chair had been painted and mildly distressed I covered the whole thing with hemp oil which enriched the colour and added some protection to the paint and the wood. Hemp oil is a beautiful, completely non-toxic and easy to use finish for any porous surface. It pairs perfectly with milk paint and can even be used to spruce up your tired looking wooden cutting boards . . . I used the hemp oil right over the cast iron gears and springs to really bring out the black.
 

This beautiful red chair has already returned to her original home, but if you love her, don't despair! We just got another one very similar in our inventory! Check out this perfectly awesome chair ready to be restyled:
