"Melina came to us in the spring, but took quite some time to tell us her vision for this transformation. She appeared often as we repaired her dovetails and sanded her wood fronts, but it wasn't until fall when she chose vintage glam refinery. Her tiger oak top and fronts had to remain a part of her, so I stained them in General Finishes Provincial stain and sealed them with semi-gloss top coat for durability and shine. What better color to accentuate that woodgrain than Dixie Belle Paint...
"This mid century modern dresser needed a little update from the orange-y stain it had before. After a good sanding, I primed it and painted it in General Finishes Linen on the outside and Snow White on the drawer fronts. I also chose to keep it really mono chromatic with new white ceramic knobs from D. Lawless Hardware!!
"This piece was once the bottom of a kitchen hutch. I removed the top and just refinished the base. The top was refinished using Graystone Water Based Wood Stain by General Finishes. The base was painted in their Perfect Gray Milk Paint."
"For this piece, it was taken from all over red wood tone and sprayed in General Finishes Black Poly. The massive top surface was stripped and stained with GF water based stain in Tobacco. But let’s talk about the details on those legs?? They were accented using Rub n Buff gold accent wax"
"The top was refinished using General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain, the base in Enduro White Poly, we also changed out the hardware for an updated look!" - Moses Restorations

"Perfect Gray" Milk Paint and "Graystone" Water Based Wood Stain
This winning combination looks good on just about everything!"
"This buffet is OLD...but is no longer showing it’s age. I love that it doesn’t look like an old dated, dingy piece of furniture but it doesn’t look brand new either, if that makes sense?
This piece was in rough shape when it came to me, broken drawers, missing pieces, missing hardware, peeling veneer. I fixed all the damaged areas then stripped and stained using General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain. It has a whole new look on life now!"
"Goodbye 90’s orange oak! Painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray with the tops stained in Graystone, a water based stain. New glass knobs and aged pewter cup pulls from D. Lawless Hardware complete this transformation!"
GF Onyx water based stain with extender and GF satin topcoat. Sprayed with 2 coats of stain (did not wipe off) and 2 coats of topcoat. Perfectly even coverage and grain shows nicely.
Followed the GF prep; clean clean clean, light sanding. No finish removal.
"This 6 drawer antique piece received a full refinish in deep GF Tobacco Water Based Stain.
Stunning hand applied three dimensional raised floral finish added to all 6 drawer fronts with an antique wash of General Finishes Lamp Black on the floral followed by slight hand rubbing of GF Black Gel Stain to "age" and deepen some areas to allow the beautiful wood tones to show through."
I mixed a little GF Graystone waterbased stain with Tobacco to lighten it a smidge on this piece. The paint on this piece is GF’s Brushable White Enamel.

"Some days I prefer paint, other days I prefer a natural or stained look. To enhance the rustic style of this coffee table, I’m glad my client chose a stained look. This piece was stripped down to bare wood, then General Finishes Graystone wood stain was applied. This color is a brownish gray stain and is a perfect choice for the coffee table!"

Custom Mixes of Water Based Stain
"This antique table/writing desk was in bad shape when it first came to me. It was sporting a rather orange pine patina and an uneven top. My friend Greg of The Furniture Fix made a new top for me, and I stained it with General Finishes "Graystone" Water Based Wood Stain. To compliment the gorgeous gray stain, the base was painted in Driftwood Milk Paint."

Before and After in GF Graphite Water Based Stain
"This table threw us a few curve balls but it turned out even better then originally planned! The table top and chair seats were first painted in General Finishes Seagull Gray and then I applied Graystone water based stain. I wiped the stain off and feathered it back on in some areas until I achieved this soft driftwood look. The legs of the table and chairs were painted in Empire gray, a beautiful gray that compliments the top perfectly!"
"LOOKing for something new and different? These Bassett beauties have been redesigned using a new General Finishes Water Based stain color called Graphite on the drawers and legs surrounded by a warm white frame. What a striking color combination! The brass knobs add just the right amount of shine on this mid century set."
"I ❤️ console tables and I know you all do to! Other then dressers they are probably the most requested type of furniture I get. So naturally when I saw this cutie I had to have it. Solid oak with drawers and shelf, I hopped right in my car to go pick it up! The top was stained in General Finishes water based stain in Graphite while the bottom was then painted in Seagull Gray. New iron hardware pair beautifully with these shades of gray and complete this transformation. I also have to give a...

"I was so happy to help restore this family piece. The top turned out absolutely gorgeous. Painted in General Finishes Lamp Black & sealed with Fusion Mineral Paint Clear Wax, it's a nice contrast to the top, which got a facelift with General Finishes NEW Hickory Water Based Stain & Fusion's Stain and Finishing Oil in Natural." - Flipping Fabulous
"I was working on this clock for my sister. She just graduated with a doctorate’s degree and I know she wanted a large clock so when I saw this at Hobby Lobby I knew it was the perfect size. It was the wrong color and a missing screw made it deeply discounted so I was able to get it for a good deal. I removed the numbers, sanded and stained with General Finishes Weathered Gray which is a new color in their Water Based Wood Stain. I just gave it to my sister and she was so excited and...

"Talk about a before and after! I bought this antique buffet months ago and was waiting for the perfect time to refinish it. Recently, General Finishes came out with new colors for their Milk Paint and Water Based Wood Stain lines.

The top & legs were stained with the new General Finishes Water Based Wood Stains Graystone, layered over Provincial. The entire piece has been sealed with High Performance Satin using my new Dixie Belle blue foam applicator (the best $6 I've ever spent).
"This large wood end table has been stained in one of General Finishes new water based stain colors, Graystone. It’s a beautiful soft gray that allowed for the brown in this grain to show through as well. The bottom was painted in a lightly distressed Alabaster (New GF Milk Paint color!) which really lets the top of this table standout!" - Nap Time Creations
