Crazed Primitive Cabinet

Sometimes pieces just have a mind of their own. Take this cabinet for example. It was a little beat up. The top and side had been replaced. I had to use an antique butter knife (my go-to tool for just about everything) to pry open the doors. In my head, I labeled it primitive and thought it would look great with my herb display at the shop.

I gave it a couple of coats of Grain Sack from Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and called it a day.

The next morning, I got to the shop early to distress and finish it.

And, I found this. I'm pretty sure I squealed. And, jumped up and down and clapped my hands alot.

It's one of the things I love about Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint. I let it do it's own thing and it gave me a truly authentic, primitive look. I applied some stain to the top for a bit of color, sanded it smooth and finished with hemp oil. The entire piece is finished with furniture wax.

Miss Mustard Seed herself called it a happy accident. Have you had any "happy accidents" with milk paint lately?
