"This beautiful buffet is the darkest gray, a mix of General Finishes Queenstown Gray & Lamp Black, layered over Fusion Mineral Paint Ceramic Turquoise, with a dark walnut top & a High Performance Satin finish.

It's a statement piece for sure."   Flipping Fabulous is proud to retail General Finishes products! Visit them at 104 North...

"Top coat is so important!! It of course protects your piece from wear and tear but for stained wood it really makes it shine! My go-to topcoat is High Performance by General Finishes.
