Milk Paint Demo Day & Moving in to my Shop Space!

What a fun day we had on the first International Milk Paint Demo Day held by Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint retailers all over the world.Milk Paint Demo Day

I decided to take part, and even though I’m mostly an online retailer and blogger, I still hold painting workshops in my local home-based studio and they are lots of fun!

So our Milk Paint Demo Day – 27th January, 2018 – was held at 10am and as advertised, I went LIVE over on my Facebook page so that others who weren’t able to attend, could join in with us.

You can see the Live right here – it’s only just over 30 minutes long and I’d love to know if you learned a thing or two after you watched it! You can leave me a comment right here at the bottom of this post.

If you’ve used Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint before, you’ll know how easy it is to mix up.

As my friend, Wendy from Front Porch Mercantile says: “If you can mix hot chocolate, you can mix milk paint.”

We had 7 ladies attend as our “live audience” and they were good sports and even asked questions and joined in the fun as you’ll see on the above demo video.demo day milk paint

In other exciting news …

I moved into our shop space at Camp Hill Antique Centre last week!

Read how that came about HERE.

Here are some fun pics of us moving in, adding shiplap to the existing partition walls and moving the furniture in, as well as some of the things I’ve added during the week.

shiplap walls

Eric and Marty successfully carried about 6 of these panels around the antique jewellry counters and upstairs!

The partition walls were looking pretty ordinary, so we opted for Shiplap to pretty it up a bit.

Fusion Mineral Paint features:

I used Fusion’s Sterling (a soft grey) to paint the shiplap walls – they are made of MDF and come in sheet panels which was perfect to measure up and add to the walls in my booth.

Holding up the walls … because that is important!

See the end capping on the far right hand side of the shiplap wall? I painted these in Fusion’s Casement – the perfect white that is just slightly off white, but still a white-white.

And see those wooden beams above the booth (below pic)? There are 3 of them, and all stained using Fusion’s Antiquing Tough Coat wipe-on poly. It makes a lovely natural looking timber stain, don’t you think?

Some stencilled Tea Towels using the beautiful Funky Junk Old Sign Stencils:

Don’t forget to pop in and visit my shop upstairs in the Camp Hill Antique Centre if you’re visiting Brisbane!

      We got them from a place called “A Wood Shed” here near Brisbane.
