"As sad as I am to see Summer come to an end, it is nice sometimes to experience the seasons changing. This cabinet was my clients grandmother’s and she wanted it proudly displayed in her home but it needed updating. Painted in General Finishes Persian Blue with Van Dyke Brown glaze as an ode to its antique history and the top freshly stained in Cabernet."

"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...

Mid century pieces are for sure growing on me. I love the simple lines and being able to mix wood grain with paint, my favorite thing to do! This dresser did not last long in my inventory, in fact I had a waiting list of interest. I will for sure be the hunt for more! Jill was the lucky lady who got to pick the colors that worked best in her home. She chose the beautiful color combination of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain with Coastal Blue Milk Paint, one of my favorite combos...

This Blue Jean Girl is stunning!

I'm in love with Coastal Blue and it brought out the modern look of this piece.  With the brushed snow white on the drawers that where sanded back to give it a jean look.  

With all this color this free-spirit stops you in your tracks. With a General Finishes Coastal Blue base it is layered with a little help from Modern Masters Apple Green and Copper Penny. Let's lighten the Coastal just a bit with some Klein Blue that will help bring out those details. Wait, it's not quite finished yet, lets add some Artistic Painting Studio Copper foil to those pretty legs and hardware! Ahhhh, now let her go and watch her fly.

 

I loved the lines of this petite china cabinet but almost didn’t buy it. It was missing a glass panel and shelves and had a couple other things wrong with it. But my friend made me a good deal and challenged me to “make something cool”. Never one to shy away from a challenge, I loaded it in my car. It lingered in my studio for a long time before I knew what to do with it. Taking my cue from the architecture of the piece I decided an Indian inlay look was the way to go. Playing off the...

Sealed in High Performance Top Coat with my Fuji Spray Hvlp for a flawless finish." - Flipping Unbelievable

I’m in love with this piece and how the wood grain pops out of the finish.

I painted it in a persian blue than sealed with sanding sealer, applied pitch black glaze and sanded till wood grain appeared.  Than sealed with flat out flat for a perfect matte finish.  Lightly distressed for a farmhouse shabby chic finish.

 

Dresser turned island with storage.  A new wood top was added in General Finishes Walnut Water based stain. The base was done in Persain Blue and Dark Chocolate with High performance semigloss finish. 

This is a true rags to riches. This dresser was so broke that the free store for the homeless GAVE  it to me- not a joke! I used to work at the shelter, & the warehouse manager said "gurrrllll, do you want this?" I was planning to take the handles and burn the rest! Ha! My Man Friend said "we can fix that!"

I rolled my eyes but he did! Painted in GF Coastal Blue, with GF Copper Pearl Effects, this Cinderella is sealed in GF High Performance Satin & was quickly purchased by an...

This lovely Linen cabinet was given a fresh new look. I stripped and primed first and then used Coastal Blue over the whole piece. The interiors were stained using Antique oak stain. I stenciled each top corner of the cabinet using Burnished Pearl and also used burnished pearl on each leg. The piece was then sealed with High Performance Top Coat, and she was ready to go. 

"We added a bit of Lamp Black to this new color from General Finishes - Blue Moon and it is so perfect for this buffet!! How amazing is the custom stencil that was added to the top drawer?"
