An Early American Dry Sink Makeover Using MMS Milk Paint in Kitchen Scale

Things are moving along with the new shop!  Nothing fun in the way of setting it up visually, but tackling the permits, cleaning and other necessary logistics.  I'll be receiving our first large retail order from Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint tomorrow!!  After that - it's full steam ahead as we'll begin to move stuff in!  We are still planning to open on September 5th, so keep watching.

In the meantime, I still have to back fill the space at R&R and am working on some gorgeous pieces for store.  Though we'll be moving everything out of the booth and to the new shop in a couple of weeks, I still feel the need to feather the "nestette" for the time being.

I actually just finished this piece this morning.  I decided to infuse some fun into this otherwise extremely boring piece.  Probably from the 70s or early 80s, this Early American dry sink is so reminiscent of what was around when I was growing up.  However, I do NOT feel any sense of nostalgia with this one and I seriously couldn't wait to transform it into a unique and functional coffee/wine station.

I've been trying out new colors (for me) in the Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint line that I have not used before.  I chose Kitchen Scale for this one and I think it was the perfect choice!   It's such a soft turquoise color.  I used Hemp Oil as the top coat and the finish is so silky smooth!  I did notice that it wasn't completely dry when I took the pictures...we seem to always be in a hurry to get the furniture out of the door and onto the floor!  :) 

I sanded it out and distressed it for the farmhouse feel - then added some chalkboard paint on the top for a little whimsy.

My penmanship leaves a lot to be desired. :)

I replaced the pulls with these really cool bale pulls that I found at Hobby Lobby.  Is there anything you cannot find there?  And their prices on knobs and good!

I do love the black against this color!

Now perfect for a kitchen or even a business reception area!  Available in our space at R&R Antiques.

'til next time!
