This is a custom mix of 3 parts Klein Blue and 1 part Emerald from General Finishes. From one angle it’s more blue and another more green. A very beautiful chameleon color. I used a satin topcoat for a lovely sheen and went back and did flat on the woven rattan on the drawers and doors for dimension. The hardware is original to the piece, cleaned and shined to a beautiful brass.

I used Persimmon, Coral Crush, Royal Purple, Klein Blue, Sunglow, Emerald, Patina Green and Holiday Red milk paints along with a few other acrylic colors on this painting. The coverage is nice, blending is easy, and I love seeing all the bright colors together.

"I've always had a passion for art and love transforming pieces into just that. Art. My 13 year old daughter picked out 4 colors. Yes, 4. lol Why wouldn't a 13 year old do anything less. I was able to transform this gorgeous antique chest of drawers into a beatufiul work of art for her on her 13th birthday. To say she LOVES it is an understatement. "
