Local Find: RED POSIE {Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Retailer in Old Historic St. Charles}

Yesterday I showed you my newly painted Foyer Credenza that I created with Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint. So where did I get my paints you may ask? A fabulous and funky little vintage and antique shop called Red Posie.

This little treasure is located in Old St Charles MO in Francesca’s off Jackson Street, BUT they also have a fabulous online store and Etsy shop where you can purchase tons of cool items!

And yes, they are an online retailer of Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint!

They have every color in stock on the web and in their shop. Aren’t the colors just amazing? I used Ironstone on my first project, but can’t wait to try out the other fabulous colors.


One of the biggest draws of milk paint is the peeling and chipping of the paint, but if you don’t like that look you can use the milk paint bonding agent (personally I LOVE the chippy look!).

Red Posie also has the Miss Mustard Seed furniture wax to protect your painted furniture and give it a tough top coat.

Red Posie has a wonderful display of all the milk paints in their store, plus even a video of Miss Mustard Seed  herself on a television giving tutorials.

Not really the DIY painter? Red Posie has plenty of beautiful painted furniture ready to purchase (which you can even buy from their Etsy shop!).

I’m seriously in love with this white buffet and hutch that has the red popping through. Plus all of the treasure that it’s filled with…

Red Posie has the upstairs space at Francesca’s and it’s filled to the brim. I think I was up there for an hour going through everything… and snagged some great items including some old books, a small end table, and vintage kitchen gadgets that I’m going to frame and hang.

Besides pieces painted with Miss Mustard Seed milk paint, Red Posie is also a huge fan of Annie Sloan chalk paint. I’m obsessed with this Emperor’s Silk red chair with the vintage pillows.

And did I mention everything is reasonably priced?

Red Posie also has a large table set up with Halloween antiques. I can’t wait to see what they have at Christmas!

So if you’re in the St. Louis area, make sure you stop by Red Posie in Old St. Charles. OR remember you can purchase the MMS milk paint online through their website!



Painted Foyer Credenza {using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint}

I was pretty stoked when Red Posie (a vintage & antique store in St. Louis) asked me to try out some Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint since they’re a new retailer in the area. I’ve been hearing about the paint for months and was über excited to get started!

I chose the color Ironstone (white) for my very first project. Now I’ve never used any kind of milk paint before so was pretty nervous considering the paint comes in powder form. Luckily it comes with easy to follow instructions and you can find video tutorials online at Miss Mustard Seed’s milk paint website.

To mix the paint I poured about 1/2 cup of milk paint powder in a plastic cup. I then stirred in 1/2 cup of water (less water since it was a light color and I wanted it more opaque). I mixed it up with a stirrer stick for about 5 minutes and I was ready to get to work.

I applied the milk paint with a normal 1.5 inch Purdy angled brush. Once it was dry you could tell it was started to bubble up in some places. I took a metal putty knife and scraped the entire credenza. Wanna see the entire piece?

I have to admit I was super nervous about using this paint until the piece was 100% finished. Then I breathed a huge sigh of relief… yep, I’m totally diggin’ it.

Do you want to try Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint? I might just be having a GIVEAWAY this week from Red Posie. Stay tuned!
