"I absolutely love the way this piece turned out! Solid Cedar too! It was in pretty rough shape when we got it! We sanded the whole thing down and created this textured crackle on it. This gorgeous ocean blue color was then created blending General Finishes Persian Blue and Patina Green Milk Paints. The whole piece was then dry brushed in white to show off the crackle effect. Love it!! - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration
"Every store I go into lately is filled with bright and colorful boho chic decor! I was inspired to search my inventory and find a piece I could transform using these beautiful colors I was seeing. This detailed solid wood end table stood out to me right away as the perfect candidate. I first painted this table in General Finishes Patina Green and followed with a color wash in Coral Crush, a beautiful combination with the original hardware painted gold. Completely sealed with High Performance...

"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...

2016 Design Challenge Entry - Pro Upcycled Furniture
"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!"
2016 Design Challenge Entry - Pro Upcycled Furniture
"I've always had a passion for art and love transforming pieces into just that. Art. My 13 year old daughter picked out 4 colors. Yes, 4. lol Why wouldn't a 13 year old do anything less. I was able to transform this gorgeous antique chest of drawers into a beatufiul work of art for her on her 13th birthday. To say she LOVES it is an understatement. "

Angela says, "I mixed my two favorite General Finishes paints, Antique White and Patina Green and came up with the most gorgeous aqua. (I mixed approximately one half cup white with two teaspoons green.) Isn't it the most perfect cottage/farmhouse color!?!
