The top was stained with two coats of each Ebony and Special Walnut and then sealed with a custom toner and poly. I added new champagne scalloped hardware to complete this mermaid inspired look." - Lilly's Home...

"Here’s Mr. Peacock showing off all his beautiful colors. They do say the male displays the most vibrant colors. He’s all dressed up in many vibrant colors. 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. My husband added a old wood plank to the top and a old wood beam as a backsplash. Now he’s dressed to impress!
Mr Peacock also has colorful backside. I left the back off and decoupaged the...

"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. "
"Once again your products amaze me. I have been loving your Chalk Style Paints but really wanted to do a deep navy piece. After seeing one with the color I loved, of course the products used were yours, but they were Milk Paints. Now I had not used your Milk Paints yet and really shied away from them for reasons I really don't know. After being told what two colors to mix I went to my local retailer and got input from her. After finding out I could mix Chalk Style and Milk Paints, I bought some...

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.
