Mustard Seed Interiors is a small business that was born out of a love for antiques, decorating on a budget, and giving old pieces of furniture new life. For over ten years Marian Parsons, the owner, has transformed second hand finds, hunted for unique antiques, and designed functional and beautiful spaces in her home and the homes of friends and family. In 2008, this passion for DIY and home décor became Mustard Seed Interiors and eventually the blog, Miss Mustard Seed in August of 2009.
Marian is also a freelance writer for HGTV.com and a contributor to Cottages and Bungalows magazine. Most recently, her work has been featured in Romantic Homes magazine (January 2011), Flea Market Style (Spring 2011), Cottages and Bungalows (April 2011, May 2011) and online at houzz.com, apartmenttherapy.com, designspongeonline.com, about.com and many DIY/home decorating blogs.
When Marian isn't showing at the Lucketts Spring Market or working on her blog, she is busy finding antiques and refurbishing furniture for her vendor space at our very own, Old Lucketts Store.
Marian rescued this chair, then painted, distressed, and reupholstered it in a vintage feed sack. Awesome!
One of Marian's hand painted signs based on vintage graphics. She uses old wood, sometimes rescued from barns and uses antique hardware to complete the look.
This hand painted dresser made quite a stir at the shop when it was offered back in February.
Marian is always trying out new projects on her blog, Miss Mustard Seed. There you'll find refinishing tips and before and afters of her creations.
