"Brooke. Typically we don't re-do hand built furniture, but this piece was just too cool to let go!! Being a crazy plant lady myself, I saw this open concept shelf unit as an amazing display for a collection of any kind! Refreshed in General Finishes China Blue with a satin topcoat finish. I saw those round rods and knew we had to make them look like metal accents! Hand gold leafing in liquid gold made this piece look like an ultra mod addition for any corner space!" - Restoration Reserve...

Sanded, painted & stained. The color is Twilight from...

"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...

In order to mimic the cane, I added white washed burlap on the drawer fronts and behind the doors. General Finishes Halcyon Blue and Reverent Gray Milk Paint. 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...

"Carly. A quiet and subtle Walnut Dry sink that just needed a little TLC. She held some amber undertones so we did a few rounds of bleach process to pull those down and a little light grey wash to tone it into a softer feel. Body finished in General Finishes Blue Moon (a recent favorite around here) with a few edges distressed and some true vintage cut glass pulls." - Restoration Reserve

"Bailey. She's a tailored style with a moody attitude. We needed a pop of color from that old cherry finish, so General Finishes Blue Moon to the rescue, with some grey aged glaze in just those upper details for a little pop! But that top! It had a great shape but had some seriously messed up veneers. We created a Faux marble top with a blend of various General Finishes grays and glazes, with a satin sprayed finish for a gentle gleam. It almost LOOKS like it could be cool to the touch...

Custom color mixed with...
"I’m not going to lie. I was “Blue” when I bought this cabinet, sight unseen, and was a little disappointed. The “Solid wood” description turned out to be a wood frame with thin hardboard sides. lesson learned. Again.  I contemplated just donating it somewhere but I really liked the compact style and figured there must be SOMEONE out there that can use a little lightweight vintage record cabinet….. for some extra storage. So while it has ALL the right style, please know this isn’t a super...

Absolutely in love with this dresser in General Finishes Coastal Blue Milk Paint by Fin + Finished!    
"We used General Finishes Coastal Blue, a beautiful navy, for the bodies. I did very intentional distressing on the hard edges of the base and used Liquid Leaf in brass to recreate the original gold on the legs. For the tops, I started with General Finishes Water Based Stain in Walnut as my base and then layered paint and stain by dry brushing as well as paint washes. I used Dark Chocolate, Cardamom, Snow White and Antique White Milk Paint as well as more Walnut and Antique Oak stain. The...
"The blonde oak was given a complete makeover in General Finishes Coastal Blue and the wood accents stained in Varathane American Walnut. The original hardware is almost unrecognizable, I knew all that scrubbing would pay off." - Fin + Finished    
"This came to us in complete dilapidated disrepair. She was delivered in a pile of drawers, trim and components.....a sad demeanor that was literally nonexistent of life. A solid but trusty massive hutch, likely a 1930's Reproduction piece of old English Jacobean Style- she needed JUST the right Client. And some of you KNOW how to push me to stretch my artistic muscles in ALL SORTS OF WAYS.... and boy did this one do exactly that! Cinderella here came to The Reserve with a special built-in...
