Now that we’ve showcased all of our Milk Paints, it’s time to begin our Chalk Style Paint Style Inspiration series! To start things off right, let’s take a look at Key West Blue: This vibrant and livable color is inspired by the ocean. Being a bold aquamarine hue, General Finishes Key West Blue is perfect for home accessories that live in a space with a lot of natural light. F

"This desk is solid rock maple... probably the sturdiest, well-built piece we have ever seen... We felt it needed to be a lightly distressed navy so that the maple could peek through. So it got General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in Midnight Blue, followed by a protective coat of Satin Laquer." - Rundown Rustics

What a statement piece this is! Upcycled & Reloved brought life to this cedar chest using General Finishes Chapin Gray Chalk Style Paint, Antique White Milk Paint and High Performance Topcoat.

How about this custom color dresser by Paige Davis of Southern Curated??

Paige explains, "Off the coast of North and South Carolina lies the Atlantic. Depending on the day it can appear both blue and green. This sums up the color I came up with after I mixed one part Coastal Blue Milk Paint, one part Nantucket Green Chalk Style Paint and a little less than a half part of Summertime Blue Chalk Style Paint."
