August’s Product of the Month – White Wax

For the month of August, we’re celebrating our creamy White Wax.

White Wax is essentially our buttery soft Furniture Wax that has a white tint added to it.  When you open the jar up, it looks like marshmallow fluff.

Before you apply White Wax to a piece, we recommend having a layer of our clear Furniture Wax on first.  Then, apply White Wax using a cloth or wax brush to spread it on your piece and wipe back with a clean cloth.  Once you have wiped off the excess wax from your piece, there is no need to apply any more finishes.  The White Wax is perfectly durable.  Miss Mustard Seed wrote a wonderful blog post detailing how she applied White Wax to this soft Scandinavian empire buffet here.

White Wax makes our soft black Typewriter look more like a charcoal gray.  Thanks to The Golden Sycamore for this super helpful graphic!

White Wax also looks divine over Curio for more of a Restoration Hardware/Pottery Barn look.  Thanks so Suite Pieces for this photo!

However you decide to use White Wax, it will quickly become an essential product in your MMS Milk Paint collection the more you use it!

You can purchase White Wax (and any of our other fabulous finishes) from your local brick and mortar retailer, or online!

April Colors of the Month – Mustard Seed Yellow & Lucketts Green

April is here and with it brings two new gorgeous colors to feature!  Whenever someone mentions Spring, we automatically think of the color green.  It’s simply where our mind goes.  With that image in mind, it’s only fitting that our first color for the month of April is our very own Lucketts Green.

This shade of green got its name and color inspiration from the green siding on the Old Lucketts General Store.


Marian was a vendor here for years and still sets up a booth at The Lucketts Spring Market every year.

Lucketts Green is the perfect color to add a pop of vintage charm.

Thanks to Allison at The Golden Sycamore, we can show you what it looks like with our various finishes.  We just love that she makes these photos available to her customers and readers!

Lucketts Green Finishes

Our second color for the month of April is our buttery Mustard Seed Yellow.

It’s bright without being too bold and is the happiest shade of yellow, in our opinion!

Marian was inspired by one of her yellow dresses and she painted a dresser to match!  Watch her feature here:

Mustard Seed Yellow looks amazing when paired with dark wood tones, like this dresser by Karla and Amanda of Vintage Hip Decor.


Check out how Jenn of Eight Hundred Furniture paired Mustard Seed Yellow against a Curio/Typewriter stained interior on this gorgeous wardrobe.

Mustard Seed Yellow can be lightened to achieve a whitewashed look with our White Wax, or deepened to show age and time with our Antiquing Wax.  It also darkens and takes on a more rich tone when Hemp Oil is applied.


Here are some inspirational pieces from other MMS Milk Paint enthusiasts and retailers that showcase April’s colors of the month.
