The 3-sided floral indian inlay pattern can be admired from anywhere in the room. The top was stripped and sanded and given a hemp oil treatment which nourishes the wood from the inside out. As per usual, I lined the drawers in a fun matryoshka kraft paper from World Market. And the knobs! The most beautiful...

"This beautifully layered buffet was accomplished by using only General Finishes products. I created the base coat by mixing the farmhouse green color that consists of GF Milk Paint in Basil, Dark Chocolate, Emerald, and Linen. I then dry brushed on some Buttermilk Yellow. The last coat of paint was a 50/50 mixture of the farmouse green and Antique White. I used the vaseline method of distressing to achieve the chippy look and many...

"I mixed General Finishes Coastal Blue with Emerald Green, and while I was going for a dark teal, it came out more like a Hunter Green. Which was still so pretty and really compliments the wood tones. I watered down the paint about 50/50, and brushed it on just like I was painting, but a thinner coat. Once dry, I sanded heavily with 80 or 120 grit paper. It left it looking pretty scratchy, so everything got a coat of High Performance Poly in flat finish. It gives it a really pretty shine, and...

We're absolutely smitten with this two-toned Emerald Midcentury stunner by Cassie at Primitive & Proper! "I decided playing it safe is for sissies. And I am no sissy. I pulled out my General Finishes in Emerald and added a dash of Coastal Blue just to darken and richen it a bit... Once the paint was dry I topped it with two coats of General Finishes HP Topcoat in Satin. I am on quite a green kick lately… I can’t get enough! I love this rich color." See the full transformation here!...
