I have always been passionate about sourcing unique pieces, restoring them to their former beauty or giving them a second life with paint. After being a European distributor for Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk paint for many years in Belgium, I wanted to share my knowledge and passion about furniture paint in our new Swedish town ‘Ludvika’, in the hills of Dalarna.
We’re working hard to renovate a little cottage next to our house . One part will be for ‘Brödladan‘, my husband’s bakery shop and baking classes, the other part will be my creative spot: I’m a retailer for Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, Fusion Mineral Paint and will host many different creative workshops.
Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint is a powdered paint (no VOC’s) that has been around for thousands of years. It was found in the pyramids in Egypt and on ancient cave paintings. When you mix it with water, you get a creamy paint that is very easy to use. It’s versatile and can be used to achieve different looks. The result is very matte and reminds me of an authentic look from the 1700’s.
Fusion Mineral Paint is a professional paint for the everyday DIY”er. With exceptional ease of application, zero VOC formulation with high coverage, it’s easy to “Paint it Beautiful”. You can tackle any project with minimal prep and you don’t need to add a top-coat, it’s already built-in! The result is a beautiful matte and strong finish.
In the shop you will get tips and advice about painting furniture and decorating with thrift store finds. Do you feel a bit overwhelmed by the idea of painting a piece yourself? Don’t be scared, you can paint!
I’m excited and impatient but it will be a lot of fun when the shop is ready! Stay tuned and follow on Facebook in the meantime! Opening soon!
