"These little cabinets are one of my favorite pieces to refinish. I think because they are easy to move around my shop alone, easier pieces to complete and I usually add a fun paper on the inside. This piece was sprayed with my Fuji Spray Hvlp Q5 Platinum (look at that shine!) for a very smooth and even finish. I used a custom color created with General Finishes equal parts of Lamp Black, China Blue and Blue Moon. I never tire of Spoonflower wallpaper and their endless design options and...

Blue Moon Milk Paint accented with Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects

"It’s no secret I love the two tone look! Especially when clients choose a different color or design for the backing in a hutch, it always provides a nice pop of color! This was painted in General Finishes Blue Moon and the backing done in Persian Blue which compliment each other perfectly. Using wallpaper or fabric on the backing is also a fun alternative to paint. So many things you can do to update a piece of furniture!"

"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...
