Klein Blue

Dionne of The Turquoise Iris washed in with this colorful coastal piece! So thrilling to see distressing and Milk Paint combined to create such a swimming beauty such as this!

"I used General Finishes Milk Paint products for this piece. This blue covered so easily... only one coat for the fella. I used Klein Blue, Persimmon and Patina Green to create this layered look. The hardware is perfect for this rustic boho look I created with the distressed painted finish!"

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...
