Chalk Style Paint

Loving this piece in GF Empire Gray Chalk Style Paint!   "This gorgeous empire looked far from gorgeous before we started. It had a ton of chipping veneer that had to be scraped off. But whoa! With a fresh coat of paint, it's stunning!" - Finn & Bo

"This hutch has been passed around my family for years. When it made its way back to me, I knew I wanted a modern farmhouse feel. I used Chapin Gray Chalk Style Paint on the case, Antique Walnut Gel Stain on the drawers and top, and dry brushed Lamp Black Milk Paint on the knobs. I've been a big fan of your gel stains for awhile now, but this was my first time using General Finishes paints. They will be my first choice going forward!" - Reminiscence Designs by GEA

Can't get enough of "The Finicky Fox Buffet" by Stephanie of Rehab to Fab!   "This antique buffet has gotten a HUGE makeover. The entire top needed to be replaced. So I built a new top and stained with multiple layers of stain to get the dimension I was looking for. The body was painted in General Finishes Limestone & Chalk White Chalk style paint. Limestone is a beautiful mix of gray & tan. It needed just one more unique touch, so I grabbed IOD's new Fox Transfer. I rubbed on...

Magazine worthy dresser in GF Empire Gray Chalk Style Paint by Katie & Co. Furniture Restorations.    

"Formerly boring brown, chipped and water-ringed, this petite beauty has been painted in General Finishes Chalk Style Paint in Bayberry Green and stenciled with Snow White Milk Paint. The 3-sided floral indian inlay pattern can be admired from anywhere in the room. The top was stripped and sanded and given a hemp oil treatment which nourishes the wood from the inside out.

It now adorns our entry way and holds or small treasures." - Hello I Live Here

"The color on the body of the dresser is Midnight Blue Chalk Style. It is a very deep, deep blue, almost black; A very rich and sophisticated color which I think works nicely on modern furniture or traditional. I applied two coats of this color. The paint is self leveling so you can’t see brush marks. To seal I applied three coats of Gray Gel Stain A little of this goes a LONG way. I still am on my first can. I like how easy it is to apply. When applying it looks white but when dry it...

"Once again your products amaze me. I have been loving your Chalk Style Paints but really wanted to do a deep navy piece. After seeing one with the color I loved, of course the products used were yours, but they were Milk Paints. Now I had not used your Milk Paints yet and really shied away from them for reasons I really don't know. After being told what two colors to mix I went to my local retailer and got input from her. After finding out I could mix Chalk Style and Milk Paints, I bought some...
