To compliment the gorgeous gray stain, the base was painted in Driftwood Milk Paint."

"These little cabinets are one of my favorite pieces to refinish. I think because they are easy to move around my shop alone, easier pieces to complete and I usually add a fun paper on the inside. This piece was sprayed with my Fuji Spray Hvlp Q5 Platinum (look at that shine!) for a very smooth and even finish. I used a custom color created with General Finishes equal parts of Lamp Black, China Blue and Blue Moon. I never tire of Spoonflower wallpaper and their endless design options and...
