This post has something for everyone! My blogging buddies and I are going to show you how to mix paint, paint with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, spray paint, AND paint with a sprayer! We are also going to transform old t-shirts, roadside finds, ordinary drop clothes, and renovate a bathroom on a budget!
