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...

"Layers is what it's all about with this dresser, tearing away at half dried paint with duct tape and sanding to reveal the colours underneath. Using a patterned roller to detail the inside of the drawers. Patina Green is the most amazing colour and can look completely different in varying lighting states. Sometimes it's hard to see pieces go to their new home and this one was definitely one of those!"

"I've always had a passion for art and love transforming pieces into just that. Art. My 13 year old daughter picked out 4 colors. Yes, 4. lol Why wouldn't a 13 year old do anything less. I was able to transform this gorgeous antique chest of drawers into a beatufiul work of art for her on her 13th birthday. To say she LOVES it is an understatement. "

Claudia from Vintage Soul Barn here. Well again I'm testing new waters and used General Finishes products to update our vintage camper or "glamper" inside and out! I used a custom mix of 2 parts Persian Blue to 1 part Patina Green Milk Paint. Holiday Red for the stripe, Snow Thite and finished the whole camper with 3 coats of High Performance Poly in semi gloss. I love the durability of your products and the fact that they are UV resistant."
