General Finishes Coastal Blue & Corinth Blue Chest Makeover

I recently gave a this old thrifty chest a makeover using a blend of General Finishes Milk Paint. I refinished the top with a simple product and applied a bit of glaze over the paint to give it a rich finish.
I just love this beautiful and rich custom blend of GF MP!! The Glaze over top is the perfect finishing touch. I refinished the top, also from General Finishes.
The chest before. I had sprayed the inside white with primer and white paint and didn't get a "before" before shot, but you get the idea.
Painting and applying the glaze. What a difference a little paint and pretty new crystal knobs make.

    Your dresser looks great. We are using antique walnut gel stain by General Finishes on our staircase, I had no idea General Finishes makes blue chalk paint. I have to check this out at the Rockler store. I am thinking of future projects using GF milk paint. Thanks for sharing!

      @Cornelia Schott Thank you! No, it's their Milk Paint line. :) AND I'm not sure why they call it that because it's not similar at all to traditional MP. BUT I do love it! I would say it's somewhere in between CP (without the chalky texture) and latex. Oh I just read the rest of your comment, I'm guessing you meant to type "milk" paint on that first sentence! ;) Yes, try them out, they are great! Good luck with your staircase!
