Say Hello to "Kitchen Scale"

By Miss Mustard Seed on Jul 21, 2012

Time for another reveal of the next Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint color – “Kitchen Scale”…


Here’s how this piece started…


 Yeah, it’s hard to believe it’s the same piece, isn’t it?

Here’s why I named the color Kitchen Scale…



The color isn’t exactly the same.  My aqua has more green in it, but this scale was my inspiration.



I love how this paint finish turned out.  It only chipped in a few small places, but the entire finish had this wonderful texture.  You can see it if you look closely…



I decided to jazz up the dresser with some branches and blossoms.  I’ve enjoyed the decorative painting I’ve done lately and it seemed fitting for this piece.  It’s a very petite dresser, so it’s perfect for a little girl’s room or guest room.


It chipped just a little bit around one of the knobs.



Since it’s a busy pattern, I kept the decorative painting to the drawer fronts only.
