I love trying new products so I was thrilled when General Finishes sent me a box of goodies to try! Right away, I was impressed with their extensive product line and eager to get my hands dirty! I’ve had this French Provincial Dresser in the shop for a few months so I thought I’d give the products a go on it!
I started by cleaning and scuffing the dresser. They recommend sanding slick surfaces prior to applying the Milk Paint. The Milk Paint is actually a pre-mixed acrylic paint and can be used indoors or out. I painted the first coat with Driftwood, which was a warm gray. I then layered Persian Blue and little Basil Green. It went on nice and smooth and dried really quickly. It really didn’t take much product and the adhesion was great! I didn’t do much distressing but I was pleased with the ease of distressing where I did. I sealed it with General Finishes High Performance Polyurethane Top Coat in Flat. The finish was not as flat as I expected but it wasn’t as shiny as Satin. It went on well and dried quick.
The results were very pleasing to the eye!
The dresser smiled too…please tell me you see it!
I’m excited to play around with more of the products General Finishes sent my way! I’m working on a dresser now that I’ll be using their Glaze Effects on so stay tuned for that!
