Holiday Red

This old gal brings flair to any room . Not your tech look. But for those of us that beat to a different drum and live of the beated path. Its the perfect fit.

A 50/50 blend of General Finishes Linen and General Finishes Holiday Red, then I wet blended with Linen applying both the mix and the linen with the same brush.  The 50/50 blend was then placed in a water bottle with a 60/40 water to paint ratio, and I sprayed starting at the top of the dresser for some cool weathering and a drippy effect. General Finishes Driftwood was used for the top, I then sealed everything with with High Performance Topcoat in satin.  The IOD Transfer was applied, then...

"Red 100% scares us but we decided to jump way outside of our comfort zone for this one. We had inspiration from a rug with fun pops of color in it to design a kids room area in our store. We painted all the other pieces first, mustard yellow, bold blue, soft beachglass... Those were easy and in our wheel house. The last color choice to fit in with the scheme either had to be red or orange. So we filled up our paint sprayer with Holiday Red from General Finishes and made it happen. It's...

The table base has been covered with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint.  A rustic aged effect has been achieved with General Finishes Van Dyke Brown Glaze over the Union Jack flag on the table top.  The glaze has been gently sanded back, just enough to expose a bit of of the Lamp Black underneath, lending a time-worn appearance,...

This simple chest of drawers was transformed into a chest of drawers any fan of superheros would LOVE to have! First, the image and the knobs were purchased and then we waited patiently for the right piece to come in. This Mid Century Modern piece was it. Perfect simple lines and the legs were the perfect KA-POW to give this piece the perfect amount of character! Transformed into a Captain America masterpiece! WOW!

Absolutely stunning buffet by Julie McDowell - Design Artist!   "To say this was a labour of love would be an understatement. I have hand embossed every surface of this beast. I used different stencils and used Durhams Wood Putty to create a very flat raised stencil. It was then sanded down to make it very smooth but still raised. General Finishes Holiday Red as my base coat, GF Pearl Effects in Burnished and GF Van Dyke Glaze applied without a top coat on the pearl. Three coats of GF...

"I love the way this client owned French Provincial desk and chair turned out! This piece was taken out of Grandmas old house and given a new modern look! We refinished it using 2 coats of General Finishes Holiday red and 1 coat of Lamp Black. The whole piece was slightly distressed to show the red coming through the black paint. It was finished in a beautiful smooth matte poly for the best protection! It will surly be a statement piece in its new space!! ❤️." - Painted Paradise, by Duke...
"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

Beautiful antique mahogany chest, with original brass pulls done in General Finishes Holiday Red Milk Paint by Queen City Salvage & Design.    

My journey for my inspiration began with a newspaper article I read about Louis XVI King of France, but more interestingly his wife Marie Antionette the Queen of exquisite taste.  She amassed artworks of extraordinary opulence and beauty.  Particularly her furniture collection, the extravagant life of Queen Marie is surrounded by elegant French furniture and fabrics, very beautiful designs that are still prevalent today. 

So I dedicate my entry piece to one of the most trend setting...
