For the love of Milk Paint

How excited is it possible to get when a bag of milkpaint drops in your mailbox??
Pretty excited, I`ll have you know! If it wasnt for me driving the car down to the mailbox (we came from the grocery store. Its not like I take the car just to get the mail!...) I am very sure I would have skipped all the way home. Haha...

I while back I got four old wooden chairs from some lady who was actually throwing them away. I KNOW! Who does that??
Anyway, I took them offcourse, but they have been sitting in the basement evers since. Because, well, we actually have dining chairs allready. But they dont really go with the look that I am trying to achieve. Unfortunately for me, my husband dont care....

Not long ago, Miss Mustard Seed Milkpaint launched a new range of colors. Now, I do love colors, they just fit in with our interior. I am more of a neutral gal`with a splash of wood and soft pastels.
So when I read about the new color Marzipan, I knew that was it for my old wooden chairs.







These will look so good when the milkpaint gets a good, light sanding, distressing and some wax.
Cant wait to finish them. Who knows, maybe even my husband will aprove....

One down, three to go!
