Staging a small Beach Cottage



I occasionally will stage a house for local real estate agents and was recently asked to help out with a small beach cottage.  This cottage was very small and needed some work, but the bones  were good and it was a small enough project that I could fit it in with my busy work schedule.  I don't have the before pictures ( the real estate agent hasn't sent them over yet), but it was full of funky furniture and very dirty.   Here is the AFTER:






















It was a fun project and a cute cottage!

Custom Blue Milk Paint Dresser



I found a great small dresser at the Flea Market last week and brought it home.  
Before:
The dresser had great hardware and I love the shape and I was picturing it in chippy milk paint.  When I went to my stash of milk paint I noticed I had many bags of MMS milk paint that only had a little bit of powder left (not enough for a project).  I decided to mix them all together and see what I got.  I mixed MMS Kitchen Scale, Lucketts Green, Grainsack, French Enamal Blue and Boxwood in a container and then made a small batch to see what I got.  I love the soft blue color that I created.  After the mixing came the painting and the scraping.  I sealed the dresser with hemp oil and attached the gorgeous hardware.
