"This vintage Henry Link dresser needed some major love but right away I could see the potential. My friend had asked me to be on the lookout for a curvy dresser for her daughter and I knew this one would be perfect! I was given one directive, she wanted it light blue with no hue of green and was given free reign on the rest! I set out to create the perfect light blue using General Finishes Snow White as my base and added just a touch of Coastal Blue. The hardware on this dresser was long...

"I am so pleased with the way this China cabinet turned out. This piece was in such rough shape when we got it! It has to be one of the best before and after pieces we have done!

It was then glazed with Limestone and Midnight Blue to add a bit of dimension. This piece will add a bit of farm house charm to any room in the house!" - Painted Paradise...

Together, we came up with a vision for her, and here it is. All done up in General Finishes Coastal Blue, with raised designs and metallic accents. She sure turned out grand!" - Designs by Dee    
"This old blanket chest has been given a new life indeed! Recognize this deep blue??? It’s that same custom color mix I’ve done a few times recently - General Finishes Coastal Blue mixed with a touch of Queenstown Gray. It’s so pretty. I can see why it’s been so popular! I also completely refinished the top in Antique Walnut Gel Stain and put on completely brand new hardware from D. Lawless Hardware." - Kristin's Krazy Garage, LLC
