"Classy, elegant and sophisticated are just a few words to describe this table... The table was painted with General Finishes Milk Paint in Coastal Blue which is a deep, rich navy blue.

Finally the table has one nice size drawer that I lined with beautiful complimenting fabric. Perfection." - Kim G. Designs

"This one is on hold but I thought I would share photos of her anyway. She's another beauty! When you paint (perfect) lines on furniture, it really doubles the time of your work, but the time it takes can be well worth it. She looks black but this one is a custom colour of General Finishes Coastal Blue and Lamp Black which turned out to be a dark navy colour. I really love it. Reminds me of ink and navy always looks dazzling next to brass. As a topcoat I used GF's Oil Based Gel Urethane Topcoat...

"I've always had a passion for art and love transforming pieces into just that. Art. My 13 year old daughter picked out 4 colors. Yes, 4. lol Why wouldn't a 13 year old do anything less. I was able to transform this gorgeous antique chest of drawers into a beatufiul work of art for her on her 13th birthday. To say she LOVES it is an understatement. "
