Blue Moon

"I’m not going to lie. I was “Blue” when I bought this cabinet, sight unseen, and was a little disappointed. The “Solid wood” description turned out to be a wood frame with thin hardboard sides. lesson learned. Again.  I contemplated just donating it somewhere but I really liked the compact style and figured there must be SOMEONE out there that can use a little lightweight vintage record cabinet….. for some extra storage. So while it has ALL the right style, please know this isn’t a super...

I only stabbed my wrist once and it was enough for a tetanus vaccine. After a good sanding and patching some holes I painted the dresser in a custom mix of General Finishes Costal Blue and Blue Moon and the legs are stained in GF Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The whole piece is sealed and new hardware has been added!" - Upcycling by...

"Finished painting the outdoor playhouse for my neighbor. The sides were painted in General Finishes Blue Moon, trim in Antique White, and the door in Queenstown Gray. The milk paint is exterior rated, but I also top coated with Exterior 450. My neighbor built the playhouse and I helped paint it all. I love how this project turned out. It’s not a service that I offer, but since my kids will be using this I agreed to help. The kids are lucky to have such a fun place to play, and they all had a...

"Would y'all believe that I've never really been a fan of green furniture before? I've loved seeing other refinisher's green pieces but it never spoke to me as a color I wanted to paint myself, until I was looking for inspiration for this hutch. I just knew it was going to be white but I was just scrolling through pinterest one day and BAM! I saw a green hutch and my whole mindset shifted. And so this beautiful eucalyptus green hutch was born. And now I want to paint all the things green...

"These little cabinets are one of my favorite pieces to refinish. I think because they are easy to move around my shop alone, easier pieces to complete and I usually add a fun paper on the inside. This piece was sprayed with my Fuji Spray Hvlp Q5 Platinum (look at that shine!) for a very smooth and even finish. I used a custom color created with General Finishes equal parts of Lamp Black, China Blue and Blue Moon. I never tire of Spoonflower wallpaper and their endless design options and...

"I’m loving the pop of color! My living room was consumed with whites and grays, not that there is anything wrong with that but it was lacking color. I love Blue Moon by General Finishes for the color that it provides while still appearing neutral." 

"We love painting pieces blue and this blend is one of my favorites. General Finishes Blue Moon blended with Coastal Blue for a deep ocean vibe. Our customer fell in love!!!!" 

Blue Moon Milk Paint accented with Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects

"It’s no secret I love the two tone look! Especially when clients choose a different color or design for the backing in a hutch, it always provides a nice pop of color! This was painted in General Finishes Blue Moon and the backing done in Persian Blue which compliment each other perfectly. Using wallpaper or fabric on the backing is also a fun alternative to paint. So many things you can do to update a piece of furniture!"
