"I’d been saving my Holiday Red for awhile. It’s a very intimidating color. But I’m glad I waited for the right piece. Accented with Burnished Pearl Effects, and shaded/aged with Pitch Black Glaze. It brought my vision (a luxurious piece tucked away in the attic of a castle) to life. I LOVE these products. I have many other brands at my disposal, and most within a quick drive, but GF is worth the time and gas. Thank you for making such awesome products!" - Vantique Junktion

"My mom came to visit me a couple weeks ago and told me she needed a coffee bar, so of course we went to my basement and “shopped” through my inventory.

The bottom was painted in layers starting with Snow White, followed...
"Whitewashing is a lovely way to add softness but maintain the natural beauty of the wood grain on pieces of furniture. When I saw this gorgeous oak dresser at Cricket's Antiques & Garden Market, I knew it would be a great contender for a whitewashed makeover!

"The twins are done! Gorgeous and glamorous in gray and gold with a splash of rustic goodness. This is a custom gray using General Finishes Lamp Black and Antique White. It’s rich, warm and creamy. The gold details were done using Liquid Leaf by Plaid Crafts.

I just love the glamour with a twist of rustic." - Newbac Designs

I used red, teal, blue, yellow and antiquing stain on him. This poor guy had no feathers when I bought him. He had lost his backside and his top.
