Today, I am sharing a color makeover that I gave an old piece of furniture with Miss Mustard Milk Seed’s Milk Paint in Apron Strings.
I have had this piece for years. Through 2 apartments and all 3 of the houses that we have owned. It has been in hallways and kitchens.
It’s original color was dark brown that had been painted white and then about 8 years ago I painted it green.
I liked the green for awhile, but 8 years is a long time to keep something the same. That color was past it’s expiration date and I was ready for a change y’all!
When deciding on a new color, I took into account that PA is the gloomiest place that I have ever lived in my life. Ever. And I have lived in a lot of places.
Seriously, sunshine is at a minimum here. So I wanted something bright and cheerful.
I love the colors of MMS paint (even if I dislike the actual process of mixing it) and I had always liked the color Apron Strings.
To me, this color is coral, but other people (my husband) have called it pink. Either way, I think it’s a fun, happy color.
You may have seen a small peak of it on my post DIY Wall Art Frame, but here is a more detailed look:
One layer of Apron Strings and a coat of Clear wax.
I did some light distressing to let all the previous colors show through,
And I also replaced the original wood knobs with 2 new styles.
I already had three that I bought for something else and never used, so I just needed one more small knob and the two larger knobs.
They were only about $4 each.
What do you think of the new color and knobs?
This hallway is in the works for a paint color update soon so stay tuned
