Shades of Grey

Another Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint project - This time I used Shutter Gray and Grain Sack and then mixed the 2 colours together to make a lovely '3 shades of grey' for this pretty nest of tables.  I have also used the Miss Mustard Seed Antiquing Wax, which is such a fabulous product, its so easy to blend and not at all as harsh as other brands used for giving an antique finish.
Here's the before pic:
I thought I would add these 2 pictures of the first coat of Grain Sack, the lighter colours in the MMSMP do require an extra coat, and I have found it better if you mix slightly less water, so about a 1/1 mixture seems to work well. I did use the bonding agent as well for the first coat as the surface was quite shiny.
Lots more Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint projects on the way.
Bye for now.
