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.

"This petite cutie on castors was painted in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint. Inspired by vintage spindles I have in my shop, the dresser was given a weathered wood look on its legs and knobs. The Farms Market themed transfer adds the perfect amount of pizazz to make this a statement piece!" - VintagelessJules
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. So I built a new top and stained with multiple layers of stain to get the dimension I was looking for. The body was painted in General Finishes Limestone & Chalk White Chalk style paint. 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...
"This amazing Grand Rapids Bookcase & Chair Co, Hastings, Michigan Bookcase was in very poor condition when I found her. Damaged dirty with holes and missing inlay appliques. I have tried to restore her at first..however, peeling veneer and damaged wood make me change my mind. I decided to transfer the image of my favorite painting by Akseli Gallen-Kallela from sane time period what my beautiful piece (1911-1917)

Diane of The Paint Factory blew us away with this masterpiece transfer: 'Swan Song' Ophelia! She used a combination of Clear, Van Dyke Brown, and Burnt Umber Glaze Effects for the finish. Words cannot express how gorgeous this piece is.
She describes, "And while working with Ophelia, I realized that she was quite possibly my last image transfer. I feel that this particular 'voice/vision' (whatever you want to call it), has been expressed... It feels right to go and exercise a new...
Delightful Frozen-themed dresser redesigned by Shades of Shabby_! Halcyon Blue and Snow White Milk Paint sealed with Flat Out Flat Topcoat and High Performance Topcoat in Satin were used on this beauty.
You know how much I love your glazes, GF!! And now I love the glaze extender. Just what I needed for this piece. This is my latest creation. I wanted it to look like a fresco, and I needed the right amount of aging (and I hate using dark wax). Clear/Van Dyke/Burnt Umber GF Glazes. - The Paint Factory by Diane Llewellyn Grover
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."
