Winter White

This Faux wood finish was created by a base coat of Seagull Gray milk paint, dry brushed on Antique Walnut Gel Stain, then a white and brown glaze! I literally made this finish up by getting out all my products out, giving them a good stare for about 30 minutes, then a little trial and error. End result was a happy client! 

Those curves just said “armour” to me, so I went with it! A fantastic faux finish to look like galvanized metal. Layers of Driftwood Gray, White Glaze Effects, and Van Dyke Brown bring this dirty, rustic metal feel to life. This end table became the center of attention in a modern farmhouse living room and completed the look with perfection!! 

Dresser/Nightstand combo painted in a custom mix of Antique White and Snow White milkpaint.  Dresser drawer fronts were stained in a grey penetrating stain, then accented with Van Dyke and Winter White glaze effects and a kiss of black wax.
