Today I'm sharing a rustic French country painted Grandfather's clock that I made over using both Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. I love using both types of paint on the same piece and have been doing it for a couple of years because I really like the crusty, rustic, layered effect that I can achieve by layering ASCP and MMS (with bonding agent).
Two weeks ago, my next door neighbor had a moving sale. Fortunately for me, she's only moving a few blocks away so I'll still get to see her. I can't wait to help her choose paint colors for her new home!
After the base coat was dry, I randomly brushed on some Chalk Paint in French Linen and then in Paris Gray concentrating on the carved decorative elements and the molding parts. Finally, I dry brushed the piece with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Ironstone mixed with bonding agent.
I love a good before and after, don't you? Here's a side by side comparison of the clock before and after. The softer, lighter color of the clock suits the farmhouse perfectly...and the price is perfect too....free!
No matter where it ends up, I love my rustic French Country painted Grandfather's clock. Making it over was easy using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in shades of gray and white with clear wax. Oh, and in case you hadn't heard, I'm on Instagram now @serendipityrefined and I'd love it if you'd follow me.
Thanks for reading!
