I hope you had a great weekend! Spending as much time as I do at the shop, I am totally missing out on the new fashions at TJMax! Frankly, shopping used to be a hobby of mine. I ended up with lots of things I didn’t need, or necessarily look good in, for $19.99. I wear jeans most days now. On dressy days, I wear jeans without paint! It’s probably time to do a final sweep of my closet and weed out the remaining pieces worn, when I called on businesses in the corporate world.
Speaking of paint…
Tom, who is a master gardener, designer and shop keeper at Veranda Antiques, stopped by last week, to pick up some Luckett’s Green Milk Paint. I just can’t resist sharing a glowing testimonial for MMSMP!…
hi barbara, here is a photo of my first painting job! it was so easy and i like the fact that you only mix up what you need for that project and you do not have all those paint cans. the color is perfect exactly what i wanted for this old farm primitive plant stand. can’t wait to try more colors as i scan what items i can paint next. thanks for opening my eyes and hands to MMSP, tom
He started out on a simple piece, (which I recommend for anyone new to milk paint), but his reasons for loving it are universally known!
Please share your photos of MMSMP projects! Send them to me at Barbara@TheTreasuredHome.com.
On a more somber note, the folks hit by Sandy need our prayers and support. I’m sure that they’re not worried about which milk paint color to try next. My daughter volunteered in New Jersey yesterday and she said she will never forget the destruction and stories of loss she heard. “There, by the grace of God, go I.”
