"Would you say I love black and wood tones or what?? Beautiful mid century 6 drawer dresser. This is super sturdy and cool. The body has been painted in General Finishes Lamp Black and sealed to protect. The drawer fronts were stripped and waxed and the top 2 drawers were taped off and painted for a fun pop." - Re-Luv'd Furniture

"So in love with this old map file cabinet! Skinny drawers for days! Painted in General Finishes Lamp Black, I gave it a nice light coat of Fusion Mineral Paint Hemp Oil, with Fusion's Stain and Finishing Oil in Cappuccino on the trim. A new rustic top with new castors add the perfect touch! The top is amazing, & the D. Lawless Hardware isn't too shabby either!" - Flipping Fabulous    

"Mid century cabinet! Hair pin legs were added to this and the body was painted in General Finishes Lamp Black. The doors were taped off with different colored striping. The whole piece is sealed for protection. I envision this being used for record storage or as a mini bar. Super cool piece that would make a great statement in your home." - Re-Luv'd Furniture

"Very rarely do I ever refinish anything for myself—but today I finally have a new dresser! Woohoo! Ain’t she a beaut? Check out the before pic as well. This mid century piece was sanded down, the legs were left bare and sealed, and the body was painted in my favorite ‘Lamp Black’ by General Finishes. What do you think of it?" - Re-Luv'd Furniture

My client contacted me about redo'ing this piece of furniture for his wife as a surprise for her birthday. Her grandfather used this piece as his tool/work bench.  I loved the story and was determined to make it beautiful again, so I gave it a lot of TLC. I ended up stripping the whole thing about 5 times to get years of stain and grime off of it. It was also breaking in areas due to the weight of the heavy tools, so those areas needed fixing. After that, I cleaned and sealed it really well...

It came from where?? This sweet little table was beside a bed in a (scary) defunct care facility that was being sold. Someone had started the refinishing process years ago, leaving various layers of stain and varnish all over it, and areas had been damaged. It was so ugly it was almost overlooked! Thank goodness it was rescued and restored!

This beautiful burl was hidden under layers of gross varnish & oils. We were excited to bring it to life.

Painted in GF Lamp Black & sealed with High Performance Satin, this Finch Fine Furniture Company buffets real focal point is the stunning drawers!

I love reading cool facts on woods & researching furniture history. Wood burls are like the diamonds of forests, so when we find veneer that is burled (typically, burled wood was made into thin sheets of veneer...

This set of nightstands were made from a antique 1930-1940’s vanity. It was almost completely taken apart, cut up by my husband and put back together by me. The set are not identical as some details had been lost over the years. With this set you are truly getting one of a kind nightstands or end tables.

When I first saw Grandma's cedar chest I just knew I could breath new life into it. The poor thing was at an estate sale in the garage, full of musty blankets and the rear left leg was broken. I loved the faux  drawers on the front and was surprised to find an actual separate drawer on the bottom. After repairs were made and thoroughly cleaned inside & out, I used my Fuji Semi Pro 2 sprayer to lay a rich General Finishes Lamp Black basecoat. I love texture and depth so I felt a...

The top was stained with Fusion Mineral Paint Cappuccino Stain and Finishing Oil in One, & the body was sealed with Fusion Beeswax. It's distressed in all the right places!"

"Another black and wood beauty! I absolutely love this color trend and think it suits this buffet perfectly! I had so much fun playing around with the design when deciding which parts to paint and where to show off the wood grain. I think the end result looks super sophisticated and classy. The body is hand painted in General Finishes Black Pepper Chalk Style Paint and sealed with Annie Sloan black wax. The top was stripped down to raw wood then stained in a mix of Antique Walnut and Java Gel...

Top sanded and stained." - 100 Thousand Welcomes Painted Furniture and Decor

"This is my favorite color combo. I’ve stripped the drawers, left them natural, and sealed them with Howard’s beeswax. The body has been painted in General Finishes Lamp Black and sealed to protect." - Re-Luv'd Furniture    
"Decided to do away with the dated carpeted wood stairs and go with a modern jet black and and white look. For the black, we used General Finishes Gel Stain with the General Finishes High Performance flat as the top coat, which gave the treads a painted look while allowing the natural wood grain to show. The white was Sherwin-Williams Pro Classic Semi Gloss. As first timers using General Finishes Gel Stain, the products were great to work with and the results speak for themselves!" - Burge...
