50/50 Mix of Blue Moon and Westminster Green Milk Paint

 

 

"Loving General Finishes new milk paint color Westminster Green! It’s hard to capture the exact color on this one, but it’s a darker shade of green with a hint of blue. I made my own leather drawer pulls with leather strips and Chicago screws, such an easy upgrade, especially convenient for hardware that has no standard hole sizes! The finish was sprayed with my Fuji Spray Hvlp gun for a perfectly smooth finish."     

This kitchen went from dark and boring to light and modern with GF Alabaster Milk Paint on the cabinets and Dark Chocolate on the island.

"This is a big one! Solid wood, it got a lot of tightening and repairs, but turned out really nice. I love this gorgeous shade of teal by General Finishes in their new release- Westminster Green. The top, although not perfect, is beautiful with Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil in Cappuccino. I hit the highlights of the intricate details with redesign with prima Eternal Decor Wax."

"Isn't she beautiful? She is painted in General Finishes Empire Gray, with Fusion Mineral Paint Ageing Wax. Her legs got some Fusion Hemp Oil, her top was stained with General Finishes Provincial Water Based Stain."     
"I used General Finishes Milk Paint in Westminster Green and Twilight, (in a 1/1-ish ratio)to give an awesome dark greenish blue."

"It's hard to capture the green on this custom set but it's amazing! This color is a custom mix of General Finishes Basil, Queenstown Gray, and Westminster Green. The drawers got a wash with layers of White and Gray glazes. I love this green so much I've already picked out a piece for the store I'll be painting this color ❤" 

Our “Oh So Chic” vintage vanity desk is complete. The new glass knobs I ordered from Pottery Barn finally arrived. We decided to pair the knobs with complimentary catalog pulls. This one of a kind piece has been painted with General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint. As with all our reNEWed furniture, we applied multiple coats of polyurethane for a smooth & durable finish." 

The Espresso colored, 2010 cabinets aren’t terrible but they are dark and the Alabaster really made a huge difference in lightening up the space.                     The Espresso colored, 2010 cabinets aren’t terrible but they are dark and the Alabaster really made a huge difference in lightening up the space.         The Espresso colored, 2010 cabinets aren’t terrible but they are dark and the Alabaster really made a huge difference in lightening up the space...

"How groovy is this little Mid century modern record cabinet in General Finishes Twilight with redesign with prima Western Tapestry transfer and Dixie Belle Paint Easy Peasy spray wax." 

"I’m not a blue person unless it’s some darker shade of Navy. This blue has me questioning all that. Sideboard finished with General Finishes China Blue and Flat Topcoat." 

"I'm really pleased with how this trunk came out. Our customer picked it out of our warehouse and wanted to keep the mid-century vibe with some wood showing. She picked the new General Finishes Carbon Gray Gel Stain & GF China Blue for the base.   Gray can be tricky for older woods. The top came out nicely, but the other areas struggled to take any stain - totally normal, as they probably weren't the same cut of wood. I used a mix of Fusion Mineral Paint Ash and Clear Glaze to tone...

"Inspired by Fall, this was painted in General Finishes Harvest Yellow with Van Dyke Brown Glaze. The top was stripped and stained in Brown Mahogany water based stain and everything was sealed with High Performance Top Coat."

"This handsome chest of drawers is all ready to go! He cleans up nicely in General Finishes China Blue. His fine lines pop by distressing the edges, giving a subtle golden highlight.    

"Such a subtle grey. Loving General Finishes Reverent Gray Milk Paint. Sprays beautifully."

"These turned out better than I imagined! If I didn’t have nightstands that I love already these would be staying with me. ☺️ These were a custom mix of General Finishes Westminster Green and a touch of Lamp Black to deepen the shade a touch. Original gold hardware just pop against these green beauties." 

"I have had a lot of requests for matching nightstands lately. They can be hard to come by but I got lucky finding this oversized set and they turned out beautifully! The tops were striped down to bare wood and stained with General Finishes Java Gel Stain and sealed with Arm R Seal for maximum protection. The bottom was then painted in layers starting with Alabaster, followed by a color wash of Driftwood and a dry brushing of brown glaze. Once I sanded down and blended all three colors I...
