"Love, love, love this chair and table!!! Prep work is key to any piece we work on! This chair may have only taken me an hour to stain but sanding it took us over 7 hours!!! Both the table and chair were stained in General Finishes Java Gel Stain. The legs of the tables were painted a custom mix of Seagull Gray and Driftwood. Sealed all over in HPTC in Satin." - Designs by Willow Farms    
"I really enjoyed using General Finishes Milk Paint on this china cabinet. Used Snow White on the inside and then did a blending on the outside with Snow White, Seagull Gray, and a mix of Seagull and black. Once the blending was complete I went over all of the lines and details with antique glaze from Valspar and the hardware was updated in silver Rub N Buff. The milk paint was really easy and smooth to use and the finish came out perfect." - Red Tulip Design    

"When I found this octagonal table it had a factory finish dark stain and an odd amount of knobs along the apron/skirt. I had a vision of it in a light gray color, so I picked "Seagull Gray" by General Finishes.

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...

After months of searching for the perfect book cabinet and not finding anything I loved, I finally decided to order a custom unfinished piece. Fenton MacLaren's in Berkeley, CA made this alder bookcase for me and I was beyond excited to finish it! I used a combination of Seagull Gray and Persian Blue to create a beautiful color to match my living room. I then used Champagne Pearl mixed with Clear Base Glaze Effects to add a bit of shimmer. The whole piece was topped with High Performance Top...

This retro funky little unit has had new legs added by the previous owner and has been refinished in seagull grey on the doors and antique white on the frame. 

It's a versatile piece and can be used in a bathroom, bedroom or living room! I think the legs make this piece really stand out and I have loved doing something different with the triangle at the top! 


3rd Place Winnter -Smashing Shades of Gray - 2017 GF Design Challenge

My journey for my inspiration began with a newspaper article I read about Louis XVI King of France, but more interestingly his wife Marie Antionette the Queen of exquisite taste.  She amassed artworks of extraordinary opulence and beauty.  Particularly her furniture collection, the extravagant life of Queen Marie is surrounded by elegant French furniture and fabrics, very beautiful designs that are still prevalent today. 

So I dedicate my entry piece to one of the most trend setting...

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...

This Modern Majestic Masterpiece was found at a garage sale where the owner practically wanted to pay me to take it. I wasn't about to leave this beauty behind, so I loaded her up and brought her home. The wood was dull and dry, and it had a wonderful musty smell as if it had been sitting in someone's basement for many years. She was screaming to bring her beauty back in high Mid Century Modern style and that's just what she got! 

I cleaned and aired it out good, sanded, and primed...

This gorgeous Eastlake style dresser quickly became one of my all-time favorite projects with a custom blend of General Finishes Milk and Chalk Style Paints with 2 parts Queenstown Gray Milk Paint, 4 parts Seagull Gray Milk Paint, and 3 parts Charleton Blue Chalk Style Paint. The resulting paint was smooth, creamy, and effortlessly beautiful! My favorite part of custom blends is that they tend to be chameleons - they can appear to take on different hues based on their lighting and other...

This boring sofa table was transformed into a stunning piece of art!  Using GF Seagul Gray on the entire base, followed with the product SALTWASH for texture.  I then added a custom Turquoise mix on the drawer fronts, followed with GF Coastal Blue.  To pull it all together I created drips with metallic silver, Turquoise and GF Coastal Blue.  Truly an amazing piece of functional art for the home.  One can't help but to dream of the ocean when looking at this piece.



"I so badly wanted to keep this gorgeous, shabby sofa table, but sadly I had to let it go. Refinished in antique white milk paint with a custom glazed top using seagull gray milk paint and antique walnut stain as a glaze. "

"First of all I had sanded it and filled the gouges and scratches with putty. When dry I've applied two coats of Milk Paint in Seagull Gray. Sealed it with Flat out Flat.

I decided the piece needed some more color to go along with plain gray and picked this cute wrapping paper with triangles. I laid the wrapping paper over each panel inside to get an idea of what size to cut it down to. 

Once I cut it out, I put a coat of decoupage glue on the wood panel, laid the paper on...
