We are loving this beautiful horn coat rack by Annie of Simply Chic.
After mixing the paint, Annie lightly sanded any rough edges and applied 3 coats of Curio as a stain. She sealed the piece with two coats of Hemp Oil. READ THE FULL POST HERE.

First, lets get our ingredients ready. Of course we need our MMSMP in Curio then our mixing cup and stir stick, plus our measuring instruments. I must preface this by saying that I try to recycle as many things as possible. You will notice my cup is from Starbucks; this is because my husband had an every day addiction to it so I asked him to please bring me home his cups. I just clean them out with a little soap and water and they are good to go! I think I must have a whole cabinet full by now. Also my stir stick has duck tape on the end because I didn’t have a short stick so I just broke a long one in half. Now to the measuring…
When you use this paint the normal ratio is 1 to 1 but in using as a stain it is 3 to 1. For this project though I chose to do a 2 to 1 ratio. That is 2 parts water to 1 part MMSMP.
I used a light sand paper to open up the grain and also to remove any rough edges of the wood. Cleaning off the piece after sanding is really important, you can use a vacuum or some Windex and a rag.
