"Glamorous, Sophisticated and Metallic! Those three adjectives describe this French vanity (circa 1910-1920) with tri-fold mirror and 3 drawers. To get this look, I first painted all over in French Linen, then I dry brushed General Finishes Argentine Pearl Effects and antiqued using GF Pitch Black Glaze and then top coated for protection, adding some silver gilding wax for extra shine." - Buttercup's Painted Cottage

General Finishes Champagne Pearl Effects

 

General Finishes Tawny Pearl Effects

"I'm seriously obsessed with this desk. I can't remember the last time I loved something so much! Painted in Fusion Mineral Paint Seaside, with Homestead Blue shading, then washed with General Finishes Coastal Blue. She has an upwards General Finishes Somerset Gold and Burnished Pearl Effects ombre. Sealed with General Finishes High Performance Flat, I added Fusion Mineral Paint Aging Wax to give her a vintage feel. The old hardware was gross, so I splurged on these fantastic pulls." - Flipping...

This ole gal was so sad and missing a mirror. With lots of luck one was found and now "Isn't  she Lovely"❤The entire thing was cleaned and old finish sanded off the top. Vanity and mirror painted in General Finishes Driftwood then white washed in in pure white and wiped off but left in crevices. Then the bling begins!!! Foil adhesive applied randomly on edges, legs and designs so that the silver leaf looks like it is peeling off. Amazing!!!!

Drawers lined in gray velvet  , a surprise...

This vintage French Provincial triple dresser was chosen out of our current inventory and customized for a client using General Finishes Seagull Gray Milk Paint with detail glazing in Argentine Pearl.

Love the way it turned out!!" - Painted Paradise - Antiques, Vintage, and Repurposed Furniture

General Finishes Coastal Blue is the perfect deep navy, and the Copper Pearl Effects are offset by a rubbed gold look on the metal hardware for a totally chic and stunning design." - For Love of the Paint
