Driftwood

"I only recently started using General Finishes and I am in love! Colors are beautiful, top coats are durable, and the coverage is amazing. This beautiful vanity was painted in Driftwood (Milk Paint), dark glazed to accentuate the stunning details, and top was sanded and stained in Antique Walnut (Gel Stain). This little lady finally got the makeover she rightfully deserved!" - Madeston Grey Designs    

"This cabinet was painted in a custom mix of General Finishes Driftwood and Millstone Milk Paint... The top was sanded down hand rubbed with antiquing wax to give it a rustic look. The original pulls were replaced with new cast iron ones that coordinate well with her coffee table and media console table." - VintagelessJules

"This vintage set is from a single Owner and was well taken care of, she just needed a bit of updating. These pieces are from the Lexington Victoriana Series 610 line... Both pieces were refinished in General Finishes Driftwood Milk Paint, lightly distressed, and finished off with dark wax for some drama. The top of the Dresser was stripped and refinished with a mix of Minwax special and dark walnut. Both pieces got dressed up with all new hardware." - Shabby Life

"General Finishes Milk Paint in Driftwood with High Performance Top Coat in Flat. As always, General Finishes has not let me down." - Kim G. Designs    

"My first time around with General Finishes Driftwood Milk Paint was a great success! But really, starting with a dresser as darling as this one (which happily required no repairs) set me up for a great start! The dresser top and drawer fronts were stripped and refinished in two different stains to set off the varied veneers and top coated with my favorite wiping varnish, General Finishes Arm-R-Seal." - Trillium Park Designs

"Used three different General Finishes Milk Paint colors for this layered/distressed top. I used Halcyon Blue, Driftwood & Lamp Black, painting it on and also dry brushing multiple layers. The Tiger Oak had such amazing texture so I wet distressed it down all over which brought the grain back out. For the body I mixed General Finishes Glaze Effects, Pitch Black & Winter White to get just the right grey to get in all those amazing grooves throughout this piece. And the grey was a...

"I really just started refinishing about 7 months ago... I fell in love with it.  So when I spotted this MCM piece, I knew I had to attempt this!!! Started with a plain brown MCM sideboard!  I wasn't sure if I should paint it at first but after doing some research, I decided to.  I first painted the outer parts of the drawers black but didn't like the way it was turning out so I ordered General Finishes Milk Paint in Driftwood and BOOM!  PERFECT contrast!  I sanded down the top of the piece...
