"Midnight here is a deep dark stunner in General Finishes Twilight (an ultra rich Navy Blue) with a satin High Performance finish. She's got only a slight edge distress, because....well.... details people! Details!!! Natural Oak Top, has been weathered slightly and sealed in Arm-R-Seal for years of wonderful wear! Two simple brass pulls. One side is a shelf, the other has a small drawer and open space beneath." - Restoration Reserve

"Painted in General Finishes Twilight, you'll notice that the color looks different in every picture. That's not because of photo filters... it's a true chameleon color- a mix of navy & black, it's exactly as it's name implies - a bit of Twilight! The top was sanded and drenched in Fusion Mineral Paint Hemp Oil & the drawers, which have kind of wonky bottoms, got some freshness with Re·design with Prima Springtime and Linear Floral Decor Stamps, using Midnight Blue Ink." - Flipping...

"Took this piece all the way down to raw wood on the top and added a beautiful dusty blue, a mixture of General Finishes Milk Paints in Reverent Gray, Perfect Gray and a touch of China Blue to the body and drawers of the desk. The top was topped with a rich, solid coat of gunstock stain to add a two tone look. The original hardware was cleaned and refinished with a Spanish copper finish. This piece was extra special to recreate for this client and the happiness and excitement they reacted...

"This vintage antique dresser looks like a blue lagoon. She is made of solid wood and dovetail joinery, and heavy for her size. She was refinished in General Finishes Blue Moon, waxed with dark gray and clear to add depth, and distressed for added interest. The top was done in Espresso and sealed for protection. The hardware was refinished in a bronze."     
"The Raina Dry Bar. As promised this lady has an ultimate surprise your guests will never expect! Closed up she's just a lovely example of a detailed mid-century rolling dry bar.

"This beautiful cedar chest is painted in a mix of General Finishes Seagull Gray and Persian Blue Milk Paint!" - Belle Maison    
"If I had to pick one piece of furniture that everyone could use in their home but probably don’t realize...it would be a cedar chest. It’s the perfect piece for toy storage, coffee table, bench seating, at the end of a bed, and of course for storing clothes and blankets. This cedar chest has been around for almost 60 years...and I had the privilege of meeting the original owner. It has since been passed down in the family and with the new updated look it will be used for many more years....

This commissioned piece was so much fun!

"Talk about a before-and-after! This rock maple server had good bones and excellent construction. The only problem it has was a dated finish and even more dated hardware. To solve that, I painted it with Coastal Blue Milk Paint by General Finishes and glazed it with Pitch Black Glaze Effects. After adding some oil rubbed bronze cup pulls, it had a new lease on life!"
