"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." 

"Petite server with the most adorable details. This is my first smaller sized buffet, I don’t find these very often! Color: Empire Gray by General Finishes⁣⁣"     
"Add some color and character to your home with this farmhouse bejeweled green antique buffet. Simple charm at its best! This classic farmhouse sideboard has been given new life, hand painted in General Finishes Westminster Green, medium distressed and black glazed to perfection! New black hardware and warm toned wood top completes this gorgeous goddess."     

"I am a total sucker for a curved front buffet and I love the bold color my client chose of General Finishes China Blue! Complete with a newly refinished top in General Finishes water based wood stain in Tobacco and brand new hardware from D. Lawless Hardware, this gorgeous piece is ready for a new life!"

"This beast was snatched from my available inventory and given a gorgeous farmhouse makeover using General Finishes Reverent Gray Milk Paint on the body and water based wood stain in Tobacco on the newly refinished top! I am absolutely loving this combo!'

"These end tables aren’t twins, but definitely siblings! Refinished in General Finishes Perfect Gray with Van Dyke Brown Glaze and sealed with High Performance Topcoat."     
"This vintage mahogany buffet has been given a new life serving as a media cabinet. 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!"

"This pair is painted in the new General Finishes Perfect Gray. Paired with light gray washed tops."

"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."

"Isn't she beautiful? She is painted in General Finishes Empire Gray, with Fusion Mineral Paint Ageing Wax. Her legs got some Fusion Hemp Oil, her top was stained with General Finishes Provincial Water Based Stain."     
"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...

"How groovy is this little Mid century modern record cabinet in General Finishes Twilight with redesign with prima Western Tapestry transfer and Dixie Belle Paint Easy Peasy spray wax." 

"I’m not a blue person unless it’s some darker shade of Navy. This blue has me questioning all that. Sideboard finished with General Finishes China Blue and Flat Topcoat." 

"I'm really pleased with how this trunk came out. Our customer picked it out of our warehouse and wanted to keep the mid-century vibe with some wood showing. She picked the new General Finishes Carbon Gray Gel Stain & GF China Blue for the base.   Gray can be tricky for older woods. The top came out nicely, but the other areas struggled to take any stain - totally normal, as they probably weren't the same cut of wood. I used a mix of Fusion Mineral Paint Ash and Clear Glaze to tone...

"Inspired by Fall, this was painted in General Finishes Harvest Yellow with Van Dyke Brown Glaze. The top was stripped and stained in Brown Mahogany water based stain and everything was sealed with High Performance Top Coat."

"This handsome chest of drawers is all ready to go! He cleans up nicely in General Finishes China Blue. His fine lines pop by distressing the edges, giving a subtle golden highlight.

"These turned out better than I imagined! If I didn’t have nightstands that I love already these would be staying with me. ☺️ These were a custom mix of General Finishes Westminster Green and a touch of Lamp Black to deepen the shade a touch. Original gold hardware just pop against these green beauties."
