MMS Milk Paint – Tricycle Red – Using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint for the First Time

I just wanted to take this opportunity to share with you my youtube channel if you have not been there before. This week I put together my first video of MMS Milk Paint.
I was literally using it for the very first time in this video. You can laugh along with me as I make mistakes and learn from them. Paint, sand, chip, wax and polish along with me as we explore the wonderful world of MMS Milk Paint!

    Hi Sharon, I joined your blog a while back, but have been away from blogging a while. I have to tell you I really love this piece! I’ve never used milk paint and was very attentive to your video. That piece turned out beautiful and I love the color! Thanks so much for the tutorial…I’ll be visiting more often for more of your restorations. Thanks…XO

      Thanks Loretta. Good to see you on here again. It did turn out well. I’ve since tried a few more colours and am loving the paint.

    […] 6. Be careful of older painted pieces as they may contain paint with lead. If you have to strip back or sand any old furniture you should be wearing a protective mask, but especially if the piece is really old as it may contain lead paint – this is EXTREMELY TOXIC. Stay SAFE and if in doubt, or especially if you are pregnant, avoid these pieces if you can, or have someone else do it for you (a professional or someone with the right protective gear). Here is a video I made of an old dresser restoration I did. It could have contained lead paint so I took precautions while stripping back. In this case I used a heat gun to melt the paint away which in any case, lead paint or regular paint, is going to cause fumes – wear a mask! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNNuhChWBOY 7. Think about hardware and fixtures. You may get a great deal on a piece of furniture, but look for missing knobs, broken hinges, broken locks, etc. To replace these items of hardware can get expensive. There are great places online to by knobs and fittings. Try ebay for knobs. They can often be cheaper, if you have to buy a few, than your local hardware store. I have an antique army box that has a broken lock on it. It has been sitting in my “too hard” pile for some time waiting for somewhere I can find a genuine antique lock/latch to replace it. Below are examples of handles I bought for this cabinet I painted with MMS Milk Paint. (Read about it HERE) […]
