"This lovely antique commode was in phenomenal shape and just needed to be cleaned and refreshed. The top was sanded and stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut (Gel Stain) while the body was painted in General Finishes Perfect Gray. I then distressed the piece some and added dark wax for contrast and protection. I also gave it new antique bronze hardware."  

"Beautiful farmhouse coffee table. This has been painted in General Finishes Empire Gray, moderately distressed, and sealed. The top has been sanded raw and then painted in a wash of Lamp Black, Empire Gray, and Antique White, then sealed in their High Performance Topcoat." 

"We just finished up this stunning bow front dresser! It is painted in General Finishes Alabaster milk paint and slightly distressed. "     

"These little cabinets are one of my favorite pieces to refinish. I think because they are easy to move around my shop alone, easier pieces to complete and I usually add a fun paper on the inside. This piece was sprayed with my Fuji Spray Hvlp Q5 Platinum (look at that shine!) for a very smooth and even finish. I used a custom color created with General Finishes equal parts of Lamp Black, China Blue and Blue Moon. I never tire of Spoonflower wallpaper and their endless design options and...

"This mid century piece just received its second new look, and this one is here to stay! Previously refinished in a farmhouse style, it’s much better dressed in a custom color I created using General Finishes Gulf Stream Blue and Lamp Black. The hardware was shined to a beautiful finish thanks to Bar Keepers Friend and a little bit of scrubbing. This is going in a master bathroom for a pop of color amongst their black and white theme."

Before and after with GF Reverent Gray Milk Paint   

Lovely little buffet in General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint 

"I’m loving the pop of color! My living room was consumed with whites and grays, not that there is anything wrong with that but it was lacking color. I love Blue Moon by General Finishes for the color that it provides while still appearing neutral." 

"We love painting pieces blue and this blend is one of my favorites. General Finishes Blue Moon blended with Coastal Blue for a deep ocean vibe. Our customer fell in love!!!!" 

"Solid wood table is the perfect size for a foyer or small dining area. The oak grain was enhanced using General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain while the base was painted in Alabaster."

Painted in General Finishes Gulf Stream Blue while the top was painted in Seagull Gray and then stained with Graphite water based stain. New hardware in aged pewter from D. Lawless Hardware complete this revival!"     

"It’s no secret I love the two tone look! Especially when clients choose a different color or design for the backing in a hutch, it always provides a nice pop of color! This was painted in General Finishes Blue Moon and the backing done in Persian Blue which compliment each other perfectly. Using wallpaper or fabric on the backing is also a fun alternative to paint. So many things you can do to update a piece of furniture!"

"Loving General Finishes new milk paint color Westminster Green! It’s hard to capture the exact color on this one, but it’s a darker shade of green with a hint of blue. I made my own leather drawer pulls with leather strips and Chicago screws, such an easy upgrade, especially convenient for hardware that has no standard hole sizes! The finish was sprayed with my Fuji Spray Hvlp gun for a perfectly smooth finish."     

This kitchen went from dark and boring to light and modern with GF Alabaster Milk Paint on the cabinets and Dark Chocolate on the island.

"This is a big one! Solid wood, it got a lot of tightening and repairs, but turned out really nice. I love this gorgeous shade of teal by General Finishes in their new release- Westminster Green. The top, although not perfect, is beautiful with Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil in Cappuccino. I hit the highlights of the intricate details with redesign with prima Eternal Decor Wax."

"I used General Finishes Milk Paint in Westminster Green and Twilight, (in a 1/1-ish ratio)to give an awesome dark greenish blue."

"It's hard to capture the green on this custom set but it's amazing! This color is a custom mix of General Finishes Basil, Queenstown Gray, and Westminster Green. The drawers got a wash with layers of White and Gray glazes. I love this green so much I've already picked out a piece for the store I'll be painting this color ❤" 

Our “Oh So Chic” vintage vanity desk is complete. The new glass knobs I ordered from Pottery Barn finally arrived. We decided to pair the knobs with complimentary catalog pulls. This one of a kind piece has been painted with General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint. As with all our reNEWed furniture, we applied multiple coats of polyurethane for a smooth & durable finish." 

The Espresso colored, 2010 cabinets aren’t terrible but they are dark and the Alabaster really made a huge difference in lightening up the space.                     The Espresso colored, 2010 cabinets aren’t terrible but they are dark and the Alabaster really made a huge difference in lightening up the space.         The Espresso colored, 2010 cabinets aren’t terrible but they are dark and the Alabaster really made a huge difference in lightening up the space...
