Ombre Chest of Drawers

About This Post

Jen at Jen's Furniture Rehab refinished this stunning ombre piece with Java, Candlelite, and Nutmeg Gel Stains, with Coastal Blue Milk Paint on the base! Jen says, "Since forever, I stain all my pieces with General Finishes Java Gel Stain... until today!! Not only are Mid-Century Modern pieces beautiful when refinished to reveal their amazing original wood grain, but they absolutely shine when you add rich color! This piece is perfect for that popular ombre finish, but I wanted to do more than paint! Did you know that General Finishes has more than one color of Gel Stain? They DO!! Crazy right?? For my ombre finish, I opted for stain instead of Milk Paint, and the colors I chose were Java, Candlelight, and Nutmeg. HELLO! Two amazing colors that I will be actively adding to my arsenal... and then I grabbed my Coastal Blue! I am addicted to this color!! It is so rich and deep, and framed the beautifully staind drawers to perfection!! Ok, I'm gushing, I know. LOL!"
