"Dressed up in General Finishes NEW Blue Moon. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite blue colors.

"I'm in love with this rare IMMACULATE vintage Lane cedar chest! The cedar smells amazing and this special chest is actually fully solid cedar (no veneers.) I custom mixed this beautiful blue-gray shade with General Finishes Persian Blue and Lamp Black Milk Paints. And how cute are those scrolled feet, complete with original wooden casters? The cedar top was sanded back and stained in Minwax Driftwood and General Finishes Arm-R-Seal for protection. Distressed, wax finish." - GarageMama...

This curvy gal has been painted in a beautiful color called Blue Moon by General Finishes. 

I was drawn to this dresser because of the combination of drawers and doors. It was covered in layers of sloppily applied paint and I originally just planned to refresh the paint. However, as I was prepping and lightly sanding, I noticed these vertical lines on the drawer fronts coming through the paint. After sanding the drawers more heavily, the wood panels were revealed and my vision began to take shape. I started with a couple of fresh coats of Persian Blue Milk paint. I followed that...

All of the hardware was sprayed to match with our favorite Rustoleum...

NEW General Finishes Blue Moon Milk Paint cabinets 

This beautiful Thomasville buffet did not sell in its original dated condition. The brass hardware was removed from the back and the top stripped and sanded down to remove all scratches and rings. The top was stained expresso and the body was painted in a rich custom mixed bright turqouise. It was then glazed with GF pitch black glaze and crumpled bags were used to get the faux effect. The entire piece was topcoated with GF High Performance Topcoat in flat. The result is an updated buffet/...

"My Minimalist Coffee Table is finally complete. This one took much longer than my usual projects for many reasons. My original vision was derailed after I wasn't able to strip it completely of the horrid paint. I decided to try my hand at wood graining for the first time and I'm in love. No more excuses for not being able to achieve a wood look for me anymore. I also did some faux wood graining with paint on the side panels as well. I had painted it white first but it was too stark of a...
