GF's NEW Gulf Stream Blue Milk Paint

Love the new General Finishes Gulf Stream Blue!

It would make a great modern (even modern farmhouse) hutch or offers storage for books, collectibles, family photos, decor. It has 3 glass shelves behind each door and the glass cut outs are on both sides as well so you can see what's inside from every angle."

"Super CUTE custom piece for a special client that matches another piece that I did for her. Love how fun and cheerful this color is!" - Second Chance Studios

Second Chance Studios created this custom color mix by combining GF Patina Green, Halcyon Blue and Snow White Milk Paint.

This was a piece I'd previously painted but it just wasn't selling and I'm a firm believer that if at first you don't succeed, try again!  Pieces can be reinvented time and time again, no finish is forever.

 

I started with a base of GF Coastal Blue. Then used my custom mix(Patina Green, Coastal Blue, Antique White and Halcyon Blue) together with Seagull Grey to create a faux finish.  I'd already added the mouldings for the previous finish so just had to put some gold leaf on...

The gorgeous original top was given new life with Antique Walnut Gel Stain." - The Copper Elm

"Layers is what it's all about with this dresser, tearing away at half dried paint with duct tape and sanding to reveal the colours underneath.  Using a patterned roller to detail the inside of the drawers. Patina Green is the most amazing colour and can look completely different in varying lighting states. Sometimes it's hard to see pieces go to their new home and this one was definitely one of those!"
