I don’t talk nearly enough about our Miss Mustard Seed (MMS) Milk Paint line. Marion (MMS) helped me get my start in this business. I actually started by picking for Marian. I’d text her pictures and then we would meet up at the Old Luckettes Store. She is also the one that introduce me (and the rest of the USA I think) to Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.
Marion’s color line for MMS Milk Paint is gorgeous! I am going to share with you a color a week on the blog along with images of the paint in action. Marion has started a blog just for her Milk Paint line that has some amazing tips and we have the Milk Paint FAQ page from Marion on the website. We sell her paints in the shop and online with all of the other goodies: furniture wax, antiquing fax, and so much more!
This week we are featuring Lucketts Green. I love this color and it’s one of our most popular sellers. I think especially going into spring it is going to be really popular. I find it refreshing.
Lucketts Green is named after the color of the shingled siding on The Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, Virginia. It is Marian’s favorite antique store and source of design inspiration, and she was a vendor there for several years. Lucketts Green is a soft, spring green with yellow undertones. It’s very close to the color commonly found on furniture in the 1930’s and 1940’s, making it the perfect vintage green.
Mix with Boxwood to make a bright, grassy green or with Linen for a pale pastel. For a nice contrast, Lucketts Green pairs well with Artissimo and Dried Lavender. Happy Painting!
