Persian Blue

"I am swooning over these French nightstands! These were updated using General Finishes Persian Blue Milk Paint with Winter White Glaze Effects. They turned out absolutely stunning!"     

"Floral with a beachy vibe. ❤️ Painted in General Finishes Persian Blue and Snow White. The top is a wash of Millstone. A beautiful statement piece, yet not too loud or bold for those with a more neutral decor. " - Gravity Hill Home Furnishings

The look of this dresser makes my heart beat faster. Age-old, made of solid wood with elements of oak veneer. One of its kind, aged by multi-layered application of a whole range of mixed colors on the furniture, which gently penetrate each other creating an impression of being damaged by time. The inspiration for it was impressionist paintings trying to capture the fleeting moment and the sensual play of colors.

I loved the lines of this petite china cabinet but almost didn’t buy it. It was missing a glass panel and shelves and had a couple other things wrong with it. But my friend made me a good deal and challenged me to “make something cool”. Never one to shy away from a challenge, I loaded it in my car. It lingered in my studio for a long time before I knew what to do with it. Taking my cue from the architecture of the piece I decided an Indian inlay look was the way to go. Playing off the...

Her golden crown sits atop copper highlights in her hair. The Sea is a wash of watery blues and greens. She is Athena, queen of the Sea. 

This beautiful antique dresser was transformed using General Finishes Milk Paint in the color Persian Blue then finished with a Re-Design Transfer, glass knobs and clear wax. 

I’m in love with this piece and how the wood grain pops out of the finish.

I painted it in a persian blue than sealed with sanding sealer, applied pitch black glaze and sanded till wood grain appeared.  Than sealed with flat out flat for a perfect matte finish.  Lightly distressed for a farmhouse shabby chic finish.

 

Dresser turned island with storage.  A new wood top was added in General Finishes Walnut Water based stain. The base was done in Persain Blue and Dark Chocolate with High performance semigloss finish. 

"This wood console table is sure to make a statement in any home! Painted in layers of General Finishes Gulf Stream Blue, Persian Blue and Alabaster. Each color was blended into the next with a watercolor blending to bring it all together and create a beautiful coastal boho look." - Nap Time Creations

Custom Mix of Persian Blue + Lamp Black

"I'm in love with this rare IMMACULATE vintage Lane cedar chest! The cedar smells amazing and this special chest is actually fully solid cedar (no veneers.) I custom mixed this beautiful blue-gray shade with General Finishes Persian Blue and Lamp Black Milk Paints. And how cute are those scrolled feet, complete with original wooden casters? The cedar top was sanded back and stained in Minwax Driftwood and General Finishes Arm-R-Seal for protection. Distressed, wax finish." - GarageMama...

I was drawn to this dresser because of the combination of drawers and doors. It was covered in layers of sloppily applied paint and I originally just planned to refresh the paint. However, as I was prepping and lightly sanding, I noticed these vertical lines on the drawer fronts coming through the paint. After sanding the drawers more heavily, the wood panels were revealed and my vision began to take shape. I started with a couple of fresh coats of Persian Blue Milk paint. I followed that...

"This commissioned piece was updated using General Finishes Persian Blue Milk Paint, Winter White Glaze Effects, and High Performance Top Coat. The finish was both sprayed with our HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer and rolled with Sherwin-Williams Mohair Rollers for a flawlessly smooth finish!

All of the hardware was sprayed to match with our favorite Rustoleum...

"My Minimalist Coffee Table is finally complete. This one took much longer than my usual projects for many reasons. My original vision was derailed after I wasn't able to strip it completely of the horrid paint. I decided to try my hand at wood graining for the first time and I'm in love. No more excuses for not being able to achieve a wood look for me anymore. I also did some faux wood graining with paint on the side panels as well. I had painted it white first but it was too stark of a...
