The 3-sided floral indian inlay pattern can be admired from anywhere in the room. The top was stripped and sanded and given a hemp oil treatment which nourishes the wood from the inside out. As per usual, I lined the drawers in a fun matryoshka kraft paper from World Market. And the knobs! The most beautiful...

"This beautifully layered buffet was accomplished by using only General Finishes products. I created the base coat by mixing the farmhouse green color that consists of GF Milk Paint in Basil, Dark Chocolate, Emerald, and Linen. I then dry brushed on some Buttermilk Yellow. The last coat of paint was a 50/50 mixture of the farmouse green and Antique White. I used the vaseline method of distressing to achieve the chippy look and many...

"Garage 9 painted this vintage, Bassett chest of drawers, as a custom job for a client. GF Milk Paint in Emerald Green and sealed with HPTC in Flat. The original hardware was spray painted metallic gold. Emerald Green was a fabulous color choice for this funky, vintage piece."   Learn more about how to apply GF Water Based Topcoat in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2sMjYUCtwg    
"I mixed General Finishes Coastal Blue with Emerald Green, and while I was going for a dark teal, it came out more like a Hunter Green. Which was still so pretty and really compliments the wood tones. I watered down the paint about 50/50, and brushed it on just like I was painting, but a thinner coat. Once dry, I sanded heavily with 80 or 120 grit paper. It left it looking pretty scratchy, so everything got a coat of High Performance Poly in flat finish. It gives it a really pretty shine, and...

Thank you for making such a wonderful family of products!" - Lesley Jarman McGilligan
