Her golden crown sits atop copper highlights in her hair. The Sea is a wash of watery blues and greens. She is Athena, queen of the Sea. 

No question this is a beautiful buffet.  With great carvings and detail work.  And it has it's flaws; although quite minor and cosmetic.

I really wanted to embrace the British Colonial era, and I knew I wanted to focus more on the finish of the body, rather than the center image transfer. 

I think, on this piece, the image transfer is secondary.  And because of that, I choose to mute the image.

My aim when working on a piece of furniture is never to make it look '...

This beautiful antique dresser was transformed using General Finishes Milk Paint in the color Persian Blue then finished with a Re-Design Transfer, glass knobs and clear wax. 

A 50/50 blend of General Finishes Linen and General Finishes Holiday Red, then I wet blended with Linen applying both the mix and the linen with the same brush.  The 50/50 blend was then placed in a water bottle with a 60/40 water to paint ratio, and I sprayed starting at the top of the dresser for some cool weathering and a drippy effect. General Finishes Driftwood was used for the top, I then sealed everything with with High Performance Topcoat in satin.  The IOD Transfer was applied, then...

Working with transfers is becoming one of my favorite things to do.  This dresser was painted in Driftwood Gray for the base and Seagull Gray for the drawers. I stained the top in Java Gel.  I added the transfer to the front to take the piece to the next level. It came out perfectly. 

This piece is definitely in my top 3 of favorite pieces I have ever done.  The minute I picked up the dresser I knew I wanted to use a transfer on it.  I found the new colored transfers and fell in love with the design.  I painted the base in a deep gray, Queenstown Gray, painted the drawers in Seagull Gray, light enough to make the transfer pop.  The transfer was the crowning glory.  It looks perfect with the chosen colors.  After sanding the top I felt a stain was needed to show off the...

I wanted to do something bold and elegant with this vintage dresser.  The shell was painted in a rich black and the drawers in a bright white.  I added a beautiful transfer to the drawers adding to its elegance.  Some added details include the appliqués on the top door fronts, decoupaged paper on the drawer sides and inside doors, Black crystal drawer knobs and finally bold and bright flowered fabric for the drawer liners. It turned out beautifully.

Alice in Wonderland desk featuring the White Rabbit: this is one of my favorite classics.

The desk is finished all the way around so that it can sit out in the center of the room. The shape of the desk was the perfect shape for this whimsical piece and it was fun to do!

 

Clean, sand, and seal. This desk had a laminate top so I sanded it with course sandpaper to assure a good adhesion of the paint. Painted with Miss Lillian's paint. Used Miss Lillian's transfer medium...

I use decoupage to get a master image onto my furniture piece, then I paint out from the image, using a mix of my own line and paint style, striving to meld intomthe master artist's work for a seamless furniture piece. I love the challenge of matching color and style, while at the same time making the piece my own by changing the dges of the masterwork and pulling it out to fit my furniture piece.

Can't get enough of "The Finicky Fox Buffet" by Stephanie of Rehab to Fab!   "This antique buffet has gotten a HUGE makeover. The entire top needed to be replaced.

Limestone is a beautiful mix of gray & tan. It needed just one more unique touch, so I grabbed IOD's new Fox Transfer. I rubbed on...

Awesome idea courtesy of Tattered_Gypsy, "Turn old boring TV trays into fun personalized custom works of art! These trays were a special gift for my father this year. I used images of his 1957 Chevy Bel Air that he purchased new on December 6, 1956! I gave them a new life by adhering 16x20 photographs to the tops with an acrylic gel medium then sealing them with General Finishes HP topcoat in gloss. The bases and legs were painted with General Finishes Driftwood Milk Paint and the tray...

Bella Boo created this Mermaid Tall Chest. "This Whimsical Beauty will soon be ready for a new home. I'm so excited to show it off. It's painted in General Finishes Linen Milk Paint. Mermaid is decoupaged on front and it is adorned with glass "bubble" knobs. I had been using chalk paint but now that I've tried your milk paint I'm hooked. I found it much easier to apply and I liked the finish better."
