Peacock Dresser

By Janelle Goodie, Owner/Designer at The Goodie Girl Shoppe

After coming home from a trip to the beach, I was inspired to blend up a batch of General Finishes milk paints using all the wonderful blues and greens! This piece was finished completely with General Finishes products.

The dresser was painted using a custom blend of 1 part Patina Green, 2 parts Emerald, 2 parts Coastal Blue and 1 part Corinth Blue Milk Paints which created a wonderful peacock blue.

The entire body was then glazed using Glaze Effects in Pitch Black. The coordinating mirror received the same paint and glaze treatment. The top of the dresser was stripped and stained using Java Gel Stain. Everything was finished off with High Performance Top Coat in Flat.
