May is upon us and it’s brought blooming flowers, warm breezes, and birds nesting in the trees. It’s also brought two new MMS Milk Paint colors to highlight and explore!
Our first Color of the Month of May begins with a cow. The wildly talented Cindy Austin offered to paint a picture of a cow for Marian because she wanted one for her home. Cindy worked on it for a few weeks, and then one day Marian received a huge box on her doorstep! Inside was the now famous cow, Eulalie.
The color of the sky in the painting was so beautiful, that Marian added it to the Milk Paint line, and it’s appropriately named “Eulalie’s Sky”. This soft aqua looks fantastic when paired with any of the whites in our line.
It’s a fun color to mix too! The powder appears creamy white in the bag, but once water hits it, it turns into the beautiful shade of aqua that we all know and love.
Thanks to Allison of The Golden Sycamore, we can show you how Eulalie’s Sky looks when paired with our waxes and Hemp Oil.
Pair it with White Wax for a coastal look or with Antiquing Wax to add depth and contrast.
Here are some of our favorite Eulalie’s Sky pieces:
Here’s a cabinet that Marian painted with Eulalie’s Sky and Ironstone.
Stacey of Embracing Change paired it perfectly with orangey-pink flowers for a nice pop!
Melanie of Mango Reclaimed shared this layered beauty! It’s proudly wearing Eulalie’s Sky, Dried Lavender, and Grain Sack.
Our favorite probably has to be this stunner by Knot Too Shabby.
Just look at all of those drawers!
This color was actually a bespoke mixture of 1/2 cup Eulalies Sky, 1/4 cup Kitchen Scale, and 1/4 cup Ironstone. The framework was painted in Ironstone.
Our second Color of the Month is our creamy Linen.
Linen was created to echo the color of aged and antique linen fabric.
Linen has more yellow undertones than Ironstone or Farmhouse White, however it’s not quite as creamy and warm as Marzipan. It also doesn’t have the subtle gray of Grain Sack. It’s the perfect off-white!
Linen looks fabulous in each of our finishes.
It’s especially delicious when it chips over dark wood. Check out how Breida from breida with a b painted her piano in Linen!
Linen is also a cornerstone color to have in your stash because it can lighten colors and add warmth to your bespoke mixtures.
