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.

This amazing Stanley faux bamboo tall cabinet/dresser got a super fun makeover and is headed to its new home this afternoon! The body was painted in General Finishes Blue Moon Milk Paint and the inside shelving was painted in the color Patina Green. Hardware was left untouched and totally original for some vintage character."
"I’ve had this Bassett chest in my inventory for a long time.
I knew I was going to paint it while stuck at home during quarantine but ironically a client messaged me and asked me to paint it for her. Funny how things work out.
This one was painted in General Finishes Patina Green - a vibrant teal. The hardware is vintage gold. The client loves some color and I appreciate the bold, fun choice!"

Three cabinet colors in one kitchen? Why, YES, thank you!! What a combination of colors for these 1970s kitchen cabinets! This gal is definitely not afraid of color and wanted her island to be a turquoise stunner! The upper cabinets were painted in GF white Enduro Poly in Satin. The paint was taken up past the cabinets over the old paneling to give the appearance of taller cabinets and more openness to the kitchen. Enduro custom mixed in Driftwood was the perfect color for the bottoms...

This gorgeous ocean blue color was then created blending General Finishes Persian Blue and Patina Green Milk Paints. The whole piece was then dry brushed in white to show off the crackle effect. Love it!! - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration

Found an inexpensive grandfather style clock on craigslist. I figured gray would be an excellent color for this piece. It wasn't until later I thought that this otomi paper from Spoonflower would be a great fit. What do you know they had gray! I used Queenstown gray and seagull gray milk paint for this...

"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...

"This French Provincial dresser was updated using a 1:1 ratio of General Finishes Patina Green Milk Paint and Midnight Blue Chalk Style Paint. She was glazed and then top-coated with High Performance Topcoat in Satin. I love the color!" - Jody Findley of JF Furniture Design
**GF Chalk Style Paint has been discontinued. Replace Midnight Blue with Coastal Blue Milk Paint.
This was a piece I'd previously painted but it just wasn't selling and I'm a firm believer that if at first you don't succeed, try again! Pieces can be reinvented time and time again, no finish is forever.
I started with a base of GF Coastal Blue. Then used my custom mix(Patina Green, Coastal Blue, Antique White and Halcyon Blue) together with Seagull Grey to create a faux finish. I'd already added the mouldings for the previous finish so just had to put some gold leaf on...

"Oh, this vanity. This vanity had a rough life before it found us! We used Salt Wash mixed with Coastal Blue, Linen and Seagull/Driftwood mix for the first layer. For the second layer, we put 12 (TWELVE!!!!) different colors on a palate and mixed our brush around without fully mixing the colors together which gave this gal an ombre look. The colors used were: Coastal Blue, Klein Blue, Stillwater Blue, Summertime Blue, Fjord Blue, Halcyon Blue, Patina Green, Persian Blue, Millstone, Driftwood,...
