June’s Colors of the Month – Kitchen Scale and Grain Sack

We love the beginning of the month here at Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint.  Why?  Because it means the time has come to feature two new gorgeous colors and one of our fabulous products for the month!

For the month of June, we’ll be highlighting Kitchen Scale and Grain Sack.

Let’s begin with Kitchen Scale.  This color falls in our blue/green family and is a deliciously deep teal.

Kitchen Scale got its name and color inspiration from this sweet scale that Marian (Miss Mustard Seed) had in her kitchen.

Doesn’t it have the most amazing patina?

Kitchen Scale pops against any of the whites in our line and it can be layered underneath of colors as well.  Marian painted her custom Lucketts checkout counter in Kitchen Scale followed by Boxwood overtop.

See how it pops?

Kitchen Scale is right in the middle between green and blue.  Here it is next to Boxwood:

And here it is nestled next to a brighter blue, like Flow Blue:

Like we said, it’s the perfect teal!

Here’s how Kitchen Scale looks with some of our finishes.  Big thanks to Allison from The Golden Sycamore, as usual, for her helpful photos!

In addition to our lovely Kitchen Scale, we’re also featuring Grain Sack this month.

Grain Sack got its name from the faded color you find on an old nubby antique grain sack.  It’s a member of our neutral family.

It’s a bit of a chameleon color.  Sometimes it looks white while other times it looks gray or beige.  It all depends on the colors that surround it.

Grain Sack can also take on different looks with our finishes.  We think it looks absolutely divine with our Antiquing Wax!

Grain Sack is an excellent color choice if you aren’t sure if you want the creamy yellow undertones of Linen, or the bright white of Ironstone or Farmhouse White.  If you know you want a neutral but aren’t 100% sure which way to go, choose Grain Sack!
