Tuscan Red

The Barn Set This pair is just alike enough to be called sisters, but they've got personality of their own! One values storage, the other values style. Either way they're an UN-matchy set that offers plenty of Class for your space! If you're craving a small pop of color without a huge space commitment- these are your girls!   Tuscan Red (a personal favorite of mine) and all natural Oak that's been treated with a wash to remove those pesky orangey undertones, and hand applied Arm-R-Seal...

"This solid wood chest has been refreshed with a deep red color by General Finishes Tuscan Red. It even has dovetailed drawers and it's original hardware has been shined up to an oil bronze." - J&L Vintage Decor    

"Loved working on this gorgeous dresser! Sprayed in General Finishes Tuscan Red with my Fuji sprayer." - Ginger Lane

Our return client lives in a modern rustic house on 5 acres. She has a keen eye for art and asked us to be creative. This was a painters dream! We found an inspiration piece and went to work. We hand painted GF Antique White using a crosshatch method. GF Brick Red and Somerset Gold were painted in meandering stripes. A wash of Antique White was used over the red. The hardware was sprayed in Rustoleum Black Spray Paint. 

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.

"How sweet is this chest! I love nursery pieces! This piece was brought to us by a client and refinished in a custom mix of General Finishes Tuscan Red and Snow White. I can’t wait to see the room all finished up!" - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration    
"We used General Finishes, Tuscan Red Milk Paint to make a fabulous color wash. I really wanted to see the wood grain and GF Milk Paint is amazing for a great color wash. A little Rub N Buff helped brighten up the original hardware and bring a little twinkle to the details of the piece." - Delilah Tree    

"This gorgeous classic chest of drawers / 6 drawer dresser has a chic and modern update with General Finishes Tuscan Red Milk Paint! The deep red is more brick than tomato but is versatile depending on the lighting in your space. This nuanced red is stunning in any color scheme, and will be a beautiful accent with traditional creams and grays, or modern and boho chic paired with yellow or blue!" - For Love of the Paint

2016 Design Challenge Entry - Pro Upcycled Furniture

"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!"

"Talk about a statement piece! Custom wine cabinet restyled from a dated china cabinet & delivered to my bff of 30 years!" - Kristi Lynn Collection

This piece was layered in Slate Gray Chalk Style Paint and Tuscan Red Milk Paint for the exterior. The interior was layered with Linen Milk Paint.

"Is this not the perfect color to get you excited about Fall? Kelly's custom dresser is complete. Kelly brought me a Dixie brand dresser of hers that had great bones but just needed a refresh. We painted it in General Finishes Tuscan Red Milk Paint. The piece was antiqued with a dark wax and new cast iron knobs were added. This dresser has a new lease on life." - Vintageless Jules

Sweet Tea Refinishing says, "Have an old chair or stool... One that you can't imagine how to replace the seat on?? Don't!! Turn them into a porch planter!!

Tuscan Red Milk Paint on the chairs and Key West Blue Chalk Style Paint on the chifferobe."
