"We finally got back around to finishing this 19th Century English wash stand. Built by James Phillips & Sons of Bristol, UK, it is made of walnut with barley twist legs and a beautiful gray marble top and back splash. Restoring the original finish was not an option, but General Finishes Twilight Milk Paint did not disappoint." - The Occasional Chair    

This modem farmhouse buffet is the perfect statement piece with deep blue shade! Multiple washes with dye stain and paint created so much depth and dimension, it looks different depending on the light.

I used General Finishes dye in blue and Milk paint in China Blue which is a beautiful true navy.

"Sometimes people get downright mad when we alter designs. But sometimes it's just necessary!This poster rice bed will be making it's home at new Airbnb so it needed a new design. To bring down it's massive footprint we chopped the posts and replaced them with cannonball finials. Funny how it looks like it was always meant to be this way, right? The deep saturated GF Twilight Milk Paint color gave it a moody new aura, too." - Saved By Design

It makes a room easy to love.   This vintage Hepplewhite dresser is petite but bold with it's convex top drawer and fluted detail. Classic in its custom French Country blue with a gray undertone. To create this look we used General Finishes custom mix using Basil, Coastal Blue and Queenstown Gray...

"The fluting, The deep rich color, The brass hardware. This one has it all! Started pulling off all those 80’s details. Behind that bulky trim was very simplistic curved sides, but a mismatched front. That’s when I decided to have a base made that would mimic the sides and create a more cohesive look. I also was not fond of the trim detail under the top drawer; but when I removed it there was about an 1/8” gap! That’s when my wheels started turning and I immediately thought of fluting! A style...

"This Dixie nine drawer dresser turned out so pretty! She was kinda raggedy before with a very tired finish. No structural issues, just a ton of nicks and gouges. This gorgeous blue is a custom mix of two parts China Blue and one part Perfect Gray from General Finishes. It’s not as purple as a periwinkle, not as navy as navy and not as gray as a blue gray. It’s just a lovely blue. I was inspired to create this color by a blue in one of my drawer liners. I was so excited to use the color and...

"This custom desk is giving me ALL the deep blue moody vibes. After a super thorough sanding and cleaning we realized it was super tippy because two legs were longer than the others so I corrected that problem with even more sanding. Gorgeous color of General Finishes Blue moon and sealed in General Finishes High Performance Topcoat." Upcycling by Amy    
Stunning waterfall vanity painted General Finishes Coastal Blue Milk Paint.   "Phew. To say this one was an undertaking for me is an understatement. And I, for sure, underestimated how much time it was going to take me to complete everything!   A waterfall piece was on my bucket list, but I never got around to refinishing one, so when my client (also a friend) asked if I could take it on as a custom project, I jumped at the chance. Little did I know how many repairs were going to go...
"Navy Thomasville Faux Bamboo. Knocked something off of my bucket list! I’ve always wanted to do a bamboo piece but they are so hard to find in my area!

"Pair of Basset end tables. These two tables came to me in great condition other then some scuffs and old spilled paint stains on top. So for this dynamic duo I sanded down the tops and gave them a fresh coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. And for the body I painted then in GF China Blue. After they were all dried I gave them a good coat of dark wax to help protect them and keep away fingerprints. The tops were sealed in gf’s high performance top coat. Hardware was left original...

Love Blue Moon. We added a black glaze to soften the color a bit.

"I never intended to do another French Provincial set, but sometimes we come across pieces that demand our attention. This is one of those pieces. The curves on this chest are so definitive and the hardware is timeless. As soon as I saw it I knew....Navy.   But the search for the perfect Navy shade was a feat. So to mixing I went. This custom shade has so much depth and it is a true chameleon. It ranges from a rich regal blue to deep teal to almost black depending on the lighting...

"How cute is this little nugget I redid for a custom order? This is a family piece but had seen better days and had been stored in a basement not feeling the love. After a good sanding, the base was painted in a custom mix of General Finishes Blue Moon and Lamp Black to custom match some wall art the customer had. The top has been stained in a custom mix of General Finishes Java and Antique Walnut Gel Stain. We sealed the whole piece, added new ceramic knobs and new wheels since one of the...

I kept the original handles and just updated them with antique gold gilding wax." - Nuvelties Home Decor and Furniture    
"Another vintage secretary desk in the books! These pieces of furniture are one of my favorite styles, but also one of the most challenging and time consuming. You may see only one piece here, but we took it apart into 18 pieces and treated each as it’s own. By doing this, we ensure the finish it even and uniform throughout and are able to identify and fix every repair it needs. This one was painted using General Finishes Coastal Blue Poly & Seagull Gray Milk Paint, and then sealed in GF...

"I’ve been buried in this custom for over a month. My client wanted the inside white but the shelves, back and side panels did not come off. I had to twist and turn and literally paint upside down inside this piece. But guys the pop of blue on this is amazing! I love a modern navy with some royal flair and this was the perfect statement color for this hutch. The original French provincial hardware was sprayed gold and gold wallpaper was added to the middle drawer. I used General Finishes paint...
