I was creating sample boards for a project I’m working on when I realized that since I made up sample boards of the neutral colors in the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line, I thought it would be a good idea to show you the WHITES. Since introducing Farmhouse White earlier this year, a question we frequently hear is: “What is the difference between the colors Ironstone and Farmhouse White?”
I grabbed all of the “white” sample boards and photographed a bunch of side by side comparisons for you to see. I hope these will help you in determining which “white” of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint to use for your projects.
* Note: Please keep in mind computer monitors can effect the colors shown.
Here are some descriptions that might assist in ways that the photographs can’t:
Ironstone is a bright white and leans a little on the cooler side of white.
Grain Sack is a barely there, off gray that leans towards the cooler side of gray.
Farmhouse White is a gorgeous white with warm undertones. Farmhouse White is, in fact, a 1:1:1 blend of Ironstone, Linen and Grain Sack together, so you could also purchase those three colors to have on hand and when you need Farmhouse White, you could blend them together.
I hope the pictures and the explanations of the colors have been helpful in selecting which “white” you might like to use on your projects!
