When I decided to open up a retail store, I wanted to incorporate something "experiential" and liked the idea of having workshops in the store. To facilitate that, I decided to bring in some crafting products included Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, a Canadian-made line of artisan paint.
If you haven't already heard of the mineral, milk and chalk paint craze and have a bit of a DIY streak, you are in for a treat! There are so many fun and amazing things you can do with these artisan paints to breath new life into old antiques and furniture, or create charming farmhouse style signs and other crafts.
The paint I chose to carry is made by Homestead House in Etobicoke. Homestead House produced this paint quietly for many years back when milk paint was first trendy. Around 1994, a partnership was created by Homestead House and Marion Parsons - a lifestyle and design blogger called Miss Mustard Seed. Marion developed a palette of new colours and a newly branded line of milk paint was born.
You can check out the Miss Mustard Seed Blog here, but this is one of her videos that I really love.
