"This Dixie 5-Drawer Dresser has been given my new specialty finish I’m calling 'Brick Beauty.' Started with a base coat of General Finishes Lamp Black, and a top coat of Brick Red Milk Paint with some distressing here and there to show the black through and give a rustic look. Above that I added Glaze Effects, Red Sienna, to add just a lil' something extra, adding to the overall 'Brick Beauty' look. The pulls and knobs have been given a rich black look to finish off this piece and tie it...

"Brick Red is such a popular color, and it was the perfect color for the style of this shelf. Our customer chose to paint the inside Linen so everything displayed would pop against the lighter color instead of sinking into dark shadows. We distressed the cabinet to give it a little more aged character and top coated it all in satin High Performance Topcoat." - Reblessed, LLC

What a job, but the end results made it worth it. Tuscan Red and Java Gel, a beautiful combination. This solid oak monster took four coats of paint and three coats of Java Gel to get the coverage I wanted. Finished off with 4 coats of HP flat. My client had a vision and GF came through again. Love, Love, Love this product. - Repurposed Love by Rhonda Donnelly_
