A while back my friend Amy (whose lovely home I recently featured) took a quick phone pic in a shop and sent it to me …
I think you can see why.
It’s a wonder I didn’t hop in my car and head straight for the shop, but she was all the way in Carver (which is on the other side of the cities from me), and she wasn’t 100% sure exactly which shop it was. Well, I’m sure she was sure while she was in it, but not later when she sent me the photo.
Seeing this collection of all white mini dressers made me fall in love with the idea of unifying my little non-collection this way. See why I’m saying that Amy made me do it?!
So I got out the Homestead House milk paint in Limestone and went to town.
The first mini in the line up was already white. And it’s painted in Miss Mustard Seed’s Linen. You can see that the Linen is just a tad warmer than the Limestone.
So I had a head start with this one. I painted it way back in March 2015 and you can see that post here. It was a two layer paint job with MMS Luckett’s Green under the Linen.
The second piece in the line up, the tall hutch style piece, was one of the first pieces I ever painted in milk paint. It was in MMS Eulalie’s Sky and you can see it here. Such a pretty color, but I was ready for a change.
Unfortunately there was a slight mishap while painting it. I broke the glass! Ooops.
Well, no worries, I just took out the glass and replaced it with screening. I love the look of screening anyway.
It houses a small non-collection of flower frogs.
I’ve repainted the final mini multiple times! You can read about the first paint jobs here. This one is a chippy little thing. The first paint job chipped off almost entirely. I really liked the second paint job in MMS French Enamel, but I’m even happier now with my uniform whites.
It’s still pretty chippy as you can see. It was missing the mirror when I bought it and I had some vintage wallpaper in that spot, but I switched it up for an old map. But I’m kinda thinking maybe I should put a little chalkboard in that spot instead, what do you think?
And did you notice something else? I now have a tiny mini camera!
Isn’t it adorable? My niece gave it to me for Christmas. It even has a tiny leather case.
It seems to be a real camera, although I can’t imagine where you would get tiny film to fit inside.
I’m quite happy with my trio of white minis.
So thanks for making me do it Amy!
