"This makeover was created using a custom mixture of General Finishes milk paints. I mixed Coastal Blue, Klein Blue, Patina Green, Emerald, Lamp Black and Snow White. I also used Metallic Teal to glaze the entire piece and accented all the distressed areas with Metallic Champagne. 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...
"Can you believe this cute cabinet has 6 paint colors layered and blended to create this unique finish? I used all General Finishes Milk Paints from one of my favorite local retailers Woodcraft Manchester to create this piece. I used Patina Green, Emerald, Halcyon Blue, Coastal Blue, Snow White and Driftwood. Oh seven colors if you include the stain on top too! For the top I used my favorite stain color Jacobean by Minwax I then sealed everything with Polycrylic top coat in Satin for a long...

"I absolutely love the way this piece turned out! Solid Cedar too! It was in pretty rough shape when we got it! We sanded the whole thing down and created this textured crackle on it. 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

I first painted this table in General Finishes Patina Green and followed with a color wash in Coral Crush, a beautiful combination with the original hardware painted gold. Completely sealed with High Performance...

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
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...
