Limestone

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. 

"This turned into quite the project! Our client took all of these pieces off of an old wardrobe and had them painted to be used as wall art and an artificial fireplace! What a great idea. They turned out absolutely gorgeous! These were done with a mix of Limestone, Seagull Gray, and Antique White Milk Paints by General Finishes, and glazed in Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects, Slate Gray, and Patina Green." - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration

Any French Provincial piece is stunning on it's own but adding paints and glazes can bring out its curves and details!  After looking at this piece for sometime as it took up the majority of space in our dining room I finally decided on breaking out of the norm of the white distressed base with a stained top and went for blends and washes of different grays. Everyone in the house was happy that a decision was finially made and I was no longer second guessing my decision!

COLOR...

"Solid wood vintage vanity or desk finished in General Finishes Driftwood with base of Limestone on the 7 drawers. The hand painted buffalo check has both colors, plus a touch of Queenstown Gray. The stripped and sanded top was finished with a rustic stain. Heavily distressed for a time-worn feel." - GarageMama Vintage

"I am so pleased with the way this China cabinet turned out. This piece was in such rough shape when we got it! It has to be one of the best before and after pieces we have done! This one was painted with a custom mix of General Finishes Midnight Blue and Limestone Chalk Style Paints on the outside and Limestone on the inside. It was then glazed with Limestone and Midnight Blue to add a bit of dimension. This piece will add a bit of farm house charm to any room in the house!" - Painted Paradise...
"I kept this desk sweet + simple with General Finishes Limestone Chalk Style Paint and classic white knobs." - Kristy Taylor Design 

"A nice surprise to break up the doldrums was a visit from my sister! She went 'shopping' in the Garage to find something special for her new house. She picked out this hope chest which I've had for some time now. She chose the beautiful Limestone Chalk Style Paint by General Finishes and I took the opportunity to use my new Palm Pro which I won from Zibra Paint (so comfortable and left a smooth finish with no brushmarks!)." - GarageMama Vintage

Can't get enough of "The Finicky Fox Buffet" by Stephanie of Rehab to Fab!   "This antique buffet has gotten a HUGE makeover. The entire top needed to be replaced. So I built a new top and stained with multiple layers of stain to get the dimension I was looking for. The body was painted in General Finishes Limestone & Chalk White Chalk style paint. Limestone is a beautiful mix of gray & tan. It needed just one more unique touch, so I grabbed IOD's new Fox Transfer. I rubbed on...

We at GF are so happy to share this fun and exiting this dresser by Sondra Foust is!

"Antiques don't always have to be stuffy, frilly, dated or chippy. They can be cool and trendy! This isn't your grandmas furniture anymore. It's young, trendy, and exciting," Sondra explains. "We painted this mid-century beauty with Snow White Milk Paint, Limestone Chalk Style Paint, and Burnished Pearl Effects with High Performance Topcoat Satin. We also updated this rather dated lamp with a...
