    If I only get to choose ONE, I guess it would have to be the white wax. It gives me the soft, muted look I like, the texture is SO dreamy, and the lavender smell is heavenly. 🙂

  2. Sue

    I liked you on Facebook a long time ago – and My favorite color – again, if I only get to choose one – is Grain Sack.

  3. Dorene

    I subscribe to the blog and adore all of the MMS products; but if I have to choose just one, I would have to pick the hemp oil. It is incredibly easy to use, provides an amazing food safe finish, and I love how it has enhanced every color of milk paint I have tried it on!

  4. Carol G

    I follow you on Pintrest, like you on Facebook and subscribe to your blog. I LOVE all of your products that I have tried so far, but if I had to pick one, it would be the waxes. They are so creamy and easy to apply! But I love your milkpaint too!! I have just begun my adventure with your products and I am like a ravenous bear that had my first taste of honey!! I can’t wait to share my projects and how they turned out! I hope I win!!! 🙂

  5. Anne

    I have been busy painting some resin pumpkins in ironstone and shutter grey…the white wax application gives them a true pumpkin -like sheen ! Fingers crossed for luck in this generous give-away…Thanks for all the on going delightful inspiration …Marian you are extraordinary !

  10. Cyndy

    I would love to do an old dresser I have with dried lavender shell and shutter gray drawers with a white vine or cherry blossom.

  11. vicki burgess

    I have not tried any of the products but would LOVE too!!!! I read your blog everyday and learn so much EVERY day!


  12. Becky

    I just love the milk paint itself! I love working with it, the coverage, the durability. You can’t beat it. Just used hemp oil for the first time too after watching Marion and Kriste’s video. Its a close second. I subscribe to both blogs and follow on Pinterest.

  13. Jill

    This week my favorite color is flow blue…next week it will change again…like all the colors!

    Question: Since hemp oil is so amazing on everything I’ve used it, do you think it would make my dinners more appealing?! JUST KIDDING!!!

  14. Laura

    My favorite product is the Grain Sack, great color to paint by itself or to mix with another color.

  15. Jenn A

    I don’t have a favorite product yet because I haven’t been able to try it, but I’m very interested to try it. I even got a really beat-up chair at a local thrift store to use for my first attempt.

  16. Connie

    I follow on both blogs and on Pinterest. Love the paint, hemp oil and the little whisk!

  17. Faithe Warren-Agee

    My favorite color right now is artissimo. It is the perfect dark, dark navy. I just did a large wood desk chair that is mahogany and used curio with bonding agent as a base, painted over that with artissimo, distressed it and then used a matte poly to seal it and add depth to the color. I usually use hemp oil (my favorite product!) followed by wax. My next project will be trophy!

  18. Teresa

    I just bought some shutter gray, but would love some more. I love everything I’ve tried so far, every color has been wonderful especially the typewriter and the hemp oil is out of this world.

  19. Claudia

    I am brand new to using your products – just bought 2 colors of milk paint, the Antiquing Wax and the Bonding Agent. I am a new fan for sure and subscribe to your blog.

    I am refinishing an old chest bought at a thrift store; using Boxwood w/bonding agent for the first coat as I don’t want it chipping away in order that some of it will show through the Tricycle top coats, that I am “SUPER-HOPING” will chip away some to let little areas of the Boxwood show through.

    I am so excited to see what happens with my first experience using your milk paints.

    And I would so LOVE to win this giveaway because I would USE them for sure! And Marian, your generous effort and time to post how-tos and videos and such on your site is sooooo appreciated and helpful! Keeping my fingers crossed I will be graced with winning!! 🙂

  20. Suzy

    I love all the projects that MMS has done !! I bought a ladder to paint but have not decided on what color. Maybe Shutter Gray ?? 🙂

  21. Courtney

    Where do I start?! I have been a looonnnngggggg time follower of your blog, and now I subscribe to your milk paint blog!I find myself spending hours looking at all of the beautiful transformations your milk paint line makes possible! I have been soooooo nervous, since I never have worked with milk paint before, to attempt a makeover of my own! And the colors…ALL so beautiful….which to choose? BUT I HAVE FINALLY CONQUERED MY FEAR LOL. For my birthday (which happens to be Sept. 30) I have asked for Miss Mustard Seed products! And I have two pieces of furniture handed down from my other half’s granma lined up, ready for their transformation! I WOULD LOVE TO WIN THE SEPTEMBER GIVEAWAY and put all of it to great use…adding beauty to our home!

    I am loving your series on custom colors. Your blog is full of real tips and sharing. Cheers.

  24. Denise

    I’m so excited you are doing another giveaway. My favorite product is the milkpaint. I have refinished several pieces – all with MMS milkpaint. My pieces have sold because of the beautiful natural finish from milkpaint. It is difficult to choose a favorite color, because I love them all. Thank you for this opportunity. I subscribe to both blogs and follow MMS on pinterest. I love to follow the blogs of people who use MMS milkpaint because of the amazing pieces created.

  25. Cindy

    Favorite product: toss up between the paint and the hemp oil. (1 entry)
    I already follow you on Facebook (2nd entry), Pinterest (3rd entry) and I’m already subscribed to the blog (4th entry). I look forward to every post!
    Favorite color: French Enamel . . . no Shutter Grey . . . no Eulalie’s Sky . . . hmmm, too many favorites to choose.

  26. Danielle

    Thank you so much for featuring my stool! I LOVE all the products but I think my favorite is the paint. I love all the colors. I subscribe to everything. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  27. maggie

    I think I’ll have to say the hemp oil since it has so many uses other than just in conjunction with the paint.

  28. Trudi

    I follow on Instagram. Love the paint, but having fun with the hemp oil! Love watching tired pieces come to life with a little oil.

  29. Linda

  30. Sharon F.

    I love all the products but my most favorite would have to be the boxwood paint. Gotta love that beautiful shade that goes with a whole lot of different things.

  31. Mandy Thomas

    I subscribe to the blog and like you on fb. Favorite product? Milk paint! But I have the hemp oil to try, and would love to try the wax after hearing such rave reviews.

  32. vicki

    I follow you on Pintrest, like you on Facebook and subscribe to your Blog. I LOVE all of your products that I have tried so far. If I had to pick one, though, it would be the waxes. They are so creamy and easy to apply! But I love your milkpaint too!! I have

  36. Sue N

    Well,,I pinned the stool, great info. I do all of your places, i am Marian junkie. have a lot of products, I have used your hemp oil on an old farm kitchen table and it’s SO much nicer. One can never have enough MMS products….

  37. Cheryl Fry

    Hopefully this is right….I read & “liked” the sign of Little Blue House by the Bay. There wasn’t a “like” on the Finding Silver Pennies IKEA stool, so after ready, I posted on their blog.

  38. Dana

    I subscribe to your blog and follow you on Pinterest. I lOvE the hemp oil. I love the fact that it compliments the “naturalness” of the paint. The finish is just divine adding just the perfect amount of sheen. I also love that you can bring old, dull pieces of furniture back to life with just a few drops of oil and swipes of a rag for a deeper, rich, antique look without looking brand new.

  39. teresa

    I really like the brushes. I already follow the blog and will now join google+. Thanks.

  40. Jaime

    I haven’t tried your products yet but have been dying to try several of the colors and the white wax.

  41. Rona Smith

  44. Anya

  45. Anya

    I am a long-time Instagram follower, and right now I’d like to paint everything Artissimo!

  46. Anya

    I have been following Kriste’s Milk Paint journal and the things I have learned about mixing milk paint have really made me excited to try it everywhere. I just painted my bathroom vanity Artissimo, and love how it turned out. It is my favorite product – at the moment!

  47. Dandi D

    My favorite product is the milk paint because I can think of so many things to do with it!

    Awesome give-away!! I’m a long time subscriber to your blog as well, “follow” you on Pinterest and “Like” you on Facebook. I’m brand spankey new to MMSMP’s and all the goodies you have to go along with them, so don’t have a favorite yet, but I’m working on it.

  57. Melissa

    I subscribe to the blog and follow on pinterest.

    I love all of the paint colors, but my favorite product is the wax. I switched from Annie Sloan’s clear wax because mmsmp wax goes on so creamy and smoothly and does not leave a tacky residue for ages. When I finish a piece of furniture with it -it’s ready to place in my booth so much sooner.

  58. Kathryn Leigh

    I follow you on Pinterest, Facebook, and via email. I dream of milk paint projects while helping my elderly parents and launching my college kiddos.

    #2 Son leaves this weekend for a terrific job far, far away. I am hoping to do some milk painting therapy as I miss this beloved son.

    Love your blog!

  66. Robin

    I am pretty new to MMSMP products so all I’ve tried so far is the paint (tried Eulalie’s sky & Linen & I have some Typewriter & Luckett’s Green on hand) and the wax. Love both the paint & the wax! Thought I’d mention that your paint line has sparked my interest (well, maybe obsession) for reviving old furniture! I’ve been hitting yard sales all summer long & have a few “new to me” pieces that are waiting for a MMSMP make over 🙂 I also follow you on pinterest & twitter and subscribe to the blog!

  67. Mimi

    I’ve only tried one MMS product thus far: Grain Sack Milk Paint… it was the perfect choice for my dresser. Would love to try some more products and Shutter Gray has caught my eye. I’m following you guys via FB, Pinterest and Instagram! Thanks so much for the chance to win this stash of goodies.

  68. Emily Davis

    I’d love to try the products! The hemp oil looks like it would be a favorite – right after the paint!

  69. Tracie O'Brien

    Pick me, pick me,! 🙂 I have yet to “pull the trigger” on using the milk paint itself, but I have gotten the Hemp Oil. In fact I got it from your Retailer Spotlight – The Country Maiden, online. And I LOVE the color Artissimo. Love it! Thank you

  70. Pat

    I have been saving my pennies to place a large order of milk paint and cannot wait to try the waxes. I can picture my bedroom set redone in ironstone with antiquing wax. Thanks for the chance to win!

  71. Teresa Gunn

  75. Meghan
