"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...

"Refinished in a custom mix of General Finishes paints. Let’s see, we have Halcyon Blue, Millstone, Reverent Gray, Antique White, Perfect Gray, and Alabaster. I went a little crazy mixing. The result is a very pretty teal/gray/baby blue. I added some GF Winter White Glaze Effects over it and lightly distressed to create a worn, layered look. Some fun wallpaper on the back completes the look!" - Elm Street Designs

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...
"What a versatile piece we just finished up! This console is painted in a mix of General Finishes Persian Blue and Seagull Gray Milk Paint." - Belle Maison    
"Super adorable farmhouse chic vintage hutch! I just love the European cottage vibe this look gives! So much labor and love went into creating this special look. The doors and top were stripped to bare wood and toned with Varathane antique white stain/poly. This beautiful very soft duck egg blue is a custom blend with GF Milk Paint (Persian Blue/Linen/Millstone) Upper in Dixie Belle Silk Mineral in Endless Shore (antique white) inside doors in burlap. New porcelain white knobs finish the look...
"This gorgeous 1970s hutch has been owned by Janis, who has been wanting to get it refinished for some time now. She picked everything out, even the ratio for mixing General Finishes Halcyon Blue and Lamb Black to create this perfect shade of blue for her custom modern farmhouse. She didn't need anything extra to show her off before she went to her home this afternoon. Janis picked out beautiful wallpaper for the back, new ceramic knobs and requested light distressing to highlight the design...
"It’s no secret that navy & gold is one of my favorite combos, so you know I was excited when my customer chose those colors for her heirloom china cabinet. This special piece has been in her husband's family and they love it, but the dated orange finish didn’t complement their beautifully decorated home. One thing that was important to my customer, is that we showed off some of the wood and stain it in a less orange, more brown finish. We decided to paint the body, and then refinish the...

"Full reveal time for this handsome, blue devil! Every drawer had veneer damage and loose veneer so I decided to remove it all with a paint scraper, moisture and heat. I only stabbed my wrist once and it was enough for a tetanus vaccine. After a good sanding and patching some holes I painted the dresser in a custom mix of General Finishes Costal Blue and Blue Moon and the legs are stained in GF Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The whole piece is sealed and new hardware has been added!" - Upcycling by...

"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."
