Painting a dresser with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.

The Purple Painted Lady® paints with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint too!

To prepare for our annual Barn Sale, we have been refinishing pieces with both Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint.

One chest of drawers was screaming to be made beautiful again, and we couldn’t think of a better way than to paint it with Milk Paint color, Artissimo!

the-purple-painted-lady-artissimo-milk-paint-dresser-picture-1

The first step to painting any piece — whether with Milk Paint or Chalk Paint® — is making sure it is cleaned. I ALWAYS clean our pieces first with Odorless Mineral Spirits. It cuts through any oil or grime that is stuck to the piece. Then I do a fresh water rinse to remove any residual Mineral Spirits on the piece.

An important tip for mixing Milk Paint: 

Start with very little water! Small quantities of water go very far with the Milk Paint. For Artissimo, I mixed two tablespoons of paint with only one tablespoon of water. Different projects vary in the quantity of paint to water. Just keep in mind that too little water is better than too much!

In addition, while painting, make sure that you stir your paint every so often. The minerals in the paint will settle to the bottom if they aren’t stirred every so often while you are painting.

With every dresser, desk or vanity, I always begin with the drawers. Keep in mind that Milk Paint can be a bit thin. You want to make sure that you catch any drips before they dry! This is especially important on drawers such as these. They have a slightly raised panel which can collect paint and then later allow it to drip down the front of the drawer.

the-purple-painted-lady-artissimo-milk-paint-dresser-picture-2

NOTICE! The third drawer down has an odd gradient across the front of it. That is due to sanding that was done before we obtained this piece. The middle of the drawer appears to be darker than the rest because the exposed raw wood absorbed the Milk Paint like a stain.

An important note about Milk Paint: 

Over raw wood, Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint will actually absorb like a stain. Over a finished piece, Milk Paint may crackle and peel to give a beautiful chippy finish.

I went on to paint about three coats of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in the color Artissimo on this particular dresser to ensure complete coverage. the-purple-painted-lady-artissimo-milk-paint-dresser-picture-3

To topcoat the paint, I used Miss Mustard Seed Furniture Wax. I absolutely LOVE her wax. The easy brush on technique is quick and effortless. The lack of bad odor is definitely a plus as well! For protection purposes, I applied two coats of the Furniture Wax, waiting a few hours in between the coats to give them enough time to settle.

With this piece, we were hoping for crackle or peeling, but it unfortunately did neither. The lack of crackle, however, did not disappoint us. Instead, it gave us an opportunity to use Miss Mustard Seed White Wax. The application of the White Wax was just as effortless as the application for the Furniture Wax. Brushing it on lightly with an Annie Sloan Small Wax Brush and then removing the excess with Scott’s Blue Shop Towels turned out to be the perfect finishing touches on this gorgeous dresser.

To refinish the knobs, all I did was apply a thin coat of Miss Mustard Seed White Wax and removed the excess!

Painting Walls With Chalk Paint®

Painting Walls With Chalk Paint® is not only going to give you a beautiful finish, but may be ideal for people with hypersensitivities, according to our customer Carrie.   It is also great for walls if you live in an older home with lath and plaster walls.

The Purple Painted Lady® LOVES her customers ~ and loves to hear about your experiences with Chalk Paint®.

Carrie is one of our customers with a hypersensitivity to chemicals decided to give Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan a try.

Check out how Carrie painted her entire house!

Carrie wrote us, “After renting for 12 ½ years, my husband and I bought our first house this spring.  One of the tasks that I was both excited about and dreading was painting.  It was exciting as we could finally choose colors that we wanted to use in our home; it was worrisome as I have intense chemical sensitivities, allergies, and asthma.  I started researching options other than latex paint.  Previously, I had used milk paint on a piece of furniture and loved the results, so I visited The Purple Painted Lady® in Macedon to talk to them about milk paint on walls.  I met a kind, helpful, and knowledgeable employee, Courtney, at The Purple Painted Lady®.  She told me about what to expect with milk paint on walls.  She also asked me, “Have you considered Chalk Paint®?”  That day I left with the Chalk Paint® color card and went home to research Chalk Paint®

The next week I went back to the shop in Macedon to purchase a quart of paint to try out Chalk Paint® on a small hutch that I had bought.  The paint applied easily and looked terrific, but more importantly, I had no negative health reactions from the paint.

My husband and I decided to go ahead with painting all of the rooms of the house using Chalk Paint®

Color Blocking Ability:

The Purple Painted Lady Carrie Titlow Dining Room Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan Transformation

Each time I went back to The Purple Painted Lady®, the employees were helpful and curious about our BIG painting project.  Some of the first rooms that we painted were the living room and dining room.  The previous owner had painted the rooms dark red and yellow.  We were concerned that it would take several coats to cover the dark red; however, the coverage of the Chalk Paint® was exceptional.  In the photo above – Carrie used Duck Egg Chalk Paint®.  Note that it looks darker than normal, but that is only due to the room’s lighting.

After one coat, my mom asked, “Do you think that you even need a second coat?”  The coverage was truly that thorough.

CUSTOM COLOR TO LOOK LIKE JADITE:

One of my favorite colors that we used was a mix by Courtney at The Purple Painted Lady®.  I walked into the shop with a bowl from my favorite vintage dishes, Fire King Jadite.

 

The Purple Painted Lady Chalk Paint Jadite Custom recipe

I asked her to match the color as closely as possible.  She experimented and mixed until we were both pleased with the color.  The results are remarkable.  Thank you, Courtney!  The color makes me smile every time I walk into the kitchen.

 

Courtney’s recipe for a Fire King Jadite color completed in Chalk Paint®:

1 part Pure White

1 part Antibes Green

¼ part Louis Blue  

The Purple Painted Lady Custom Chalk Paint Annie Sloan Jadite color

We used  (a 2 quart mixing bucket sold at The Purple Painted Lady®)  with measure marks to mix the paint. I loved the Jadite color so much that we used it in the bathroom as well.

In the library, we used Annie Sloan’s Old Ochre.

Unfortunately, we did not take any before pictures of this little room.  It was blue above the chair rail and a pinkish-hued tan below the chair rail.

We learned that Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan can also be used outside.  In fact, Old White was a perfect color match with the existing paint on our porch.

  • Painted edges and corners of rooms with brush
  • Painted walls with large and small rollers
  • Allowed paint to dry overnight
  • Kept the temperature around 70 degrees in the house while the paint was drying
  • 2 coats of Chalk Paint® in each room
  • Waxed walls of bathroom with Annie Sloan Clear Wax

Results:

  • No allergic reactions, no difficulty breathing, no headaches, etc.
  • Complete coverage of dark colors including dark red and navy
  • Lathe and plaster walls look better with the flat paint…fewer imperfections show

The Purple Painted Lady Carrie Titlow Image #27CARRIE’S TIPS & TRICKS

  • As paint is drying, cover vents with terry cloth towels otherwise cool air blowing directly on drying paint will make the paint crack
  • Use the small roller around the edges to give the paint a more consistent look- the brush and roller apply the paint quite differently
  • Pour the paint in the paint tray and then use what’s left in the can to work on the edges- there is still quite a bit of paint in the can clinging to the bottom and sides

 

Chalk Paint® cans fit perfectly into the HANDy pails.

SUMMARY OF THIS EXPERIENCE:

If I was asked to condense my experience of using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan into a few sentences, it would be this:
Chalk Paint® applied easily, and the results were beautiful.  There was very little odor to the paint, and I had zero allergic reactions when using it every day for 2 weeks (small miracle for me who reacts to everything).  I will be going back to The Purple Painted Lady® for Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan for all of my future painting projects; I am a customer for life.  “
