Key West Blue

"This may be my new favorite color! This client owned piece was refinished in a custom mix of General Finishes Key West Blue and Snow White and glazed with Winter White Glaze Effects! Another family heirloom ready for its next 100 years of enjoyment!" 

"This solid pine storage bench has been completely transformed from its old boring past and now its future is looking bright!I knew right away I wanted to add a cushion so first I found the fabric and then picked the colors. I started with General Finishes Milk Paint in Linen then added the grain sack stripes in Key West Blue and finished with this beautiful grains stencil in Coastal Blue. The blues matched the fabric exactly and just tied it all together so nicely!" 

This house was flooded and took 2 years to rebuild into a dream home. This kitchen was raw. The client wanted a unique finish to tie in the center of this breathtaking kitchen that over looks the cove of the lake. 

Key West GF chalky finish was used to create a blue water finish to tie into the barn and tin ceiling and crisp clean white cabinets. 

This is a bathroom I refinished for a client's beach home. She wanted a coastal chippy look but wanted the cabinets to be smooth to the touch and durable.

With a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our Chalk Style Paint line. We've decided to focus on Milk Paint, the most durable paint for furniture and cabinets.

Not to worry though; we've moved our two most popular Chalk Style Paint colors, Empire Gray and Key West Blue!

"Since I can't go to Morocco I'll pretend I'm there with this dresser. I painted it in General Finishes Klein Blue, Key West Blue, and Patina Green. I used redesign with prima's patchwork stencil. The surface has been given a luminescent sheen with redesign with prima decor wax in element and milky way. I created my own shimmery glazes with mica powers and general finishes top coat in satin. I also added a touch of ruby icing paste. You can watch video tutorials on my page of how I created...

"This buffet had layers of paint when I revieved it. LAYERS!!! You can see in the areas that are distressed the different colors. I painted it in Lamp Black and then Antique White. I like how you can see the drips and layers from the old paint in the areas I distressed. Inside is painted in GF Keywest Blue Chalk Style Paint. Applied finishing wax and buffed to a nice sheen."

"This adorable little mid-century end table is surprisingly heavy & solid. The base is done with a I Love Saltwash mix with General Finishes Key West Blue Chalk Style Paint, with GF Fjord Blue over it. The top is done with GF Java Gel Stain & GF Wipe On Urethane. It is sealed with GF Flat Out Flat. See the step by step on my Facebook page. The sign... I love it so much that I almost kept it (that should surprise few... because I AM a hoarder). This canvas was done using General Finishes...

"For the base coat I used General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in Key West Blue.  It’s a really pretty blue green; perfect for the coastal inspired theme.  I mixed in the paint additive Saltwash and used a brush to stipple on the mixture.  It’s messy, but no worries because your brush cleans up with soap and water.  I knocked down the peaks and let it dry. I added a 50/50 mixture of the Key West Blue and a pure...

"This set of end tables doesn't match in the traditional way...but since when are we traditional?! Two gorgeous and unique-in-their-own-way side tables perfect for a smaller living area or bedroom. They were painted by Casey Page in General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in Key West Blue and glazed in brown." - Boutique Unique    
"Had a little paint therapy last week and gave this desk a boho makeover! I used about 6-7 different GF Milk Paint & Chalk Style Paint colors (starting with Persimmon) and finished off with FOF (Flat Out Flat Topcoat). It sold before the last layer of topcoat was dry. I mixed and layered colors and started with Persimmon as the base. Used a little Klein Blue, Corinth Blue, Lime Green, Coastal Blue (Milk Paints), Fjord Blue, Key West Blue & Charleton Blue (Chalk Style Paints) and maybe...
Loving this fun and dramatic makeover from Saw Nail and Paint!   "I applied 3 coats of a custom mix of General Finishes Antique White and Snow White to the entire dresser. I let it dry for a day and then applied a really fun scalloped design Shape Tape to the bottom. Once dry, I applied 3 coats of another custom paint mix to the bottom. I added a small amount of General Finishes Key West Blue Chalk Style Paint to the existing custom white paint until I had a pale watery blue green shade....

Sweet Tea Refinishing says, "Have an old chair or stool... One that you can't imagine how to replace the seat on?? Don't!! Turn them into a porch planter!! By dropping a fruit basket in the chair and attaching a coconut liner to each of them, I was able to add pretty foliage for my front porch!! All the colors you see here are from General Finishes. Tuscan Red Milk Paint on the chairs and Key West Blue Chalk Style Paint on the chifferobe."

Can't get enough of this GF Key West Blue Chalk Style Paint and Java Gel Stain dresser by Saw Nail and Paint of Seattle, WA! Susan of Saw Nail and Paint says, "When I saw the list of Chalk Style Paint colors, I knew I had to pick Key West Blue. It’s a lovely light turquoise color, much like the striking blue green water of the Keys."

Recreated Designs says, "I began by giving the bookcase two coats of the General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in Key West Blue. This paint, like the Milk Paint I had recently tried, acted very much like a latex paint. It covered beautifully and was a nice thick paint with beautiful pigmentation." The back was painted in GF's Snow White Milk Paint with stripes highlighted with diluted Key West Blue Chalk Style Paint. "I couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous finish I was able to achieve with the...
