"What do you think - because I LOVE this piece! This amazing console cabinet is definitely easy on the eyes and has SO much storage. Some maybe find this color combo simple but I think it’s one of my favorites - classic, clean, and handsome! The base and inside of the super roomy cabinets are painted in a custom gray mix of General Finishes Queenstown Gray and Driftwood Milk Paint and I stripped and re-stained the top using Java Gel stain. All sealed and protected - but of course. The hardware...
"These are my favorite kind of makeovers! A formerly dark, dated & oversized bedroom set now has a fresh, modern look! We added a few extra moldings & hardware, then painted in this gorgeous Seagull Grey color by General Finishes! Popped those details with a bit of Pitch Black Glaze then finished the project with High Performance Top Coat for enhanced durability! Fresh handles now offer a whole new look!" - Captiva Home - Furniture Painting    
Awesome decorative design in GF Queenstown Gray Milk Paint by Finn+Bo   "The wood was in such amazing shape on this one, I really didn’t want to cover it up. Once I stripped it all, I stained it with Minwax gray to cancel a bit of the warmth. It had some holes on the drawers from added hardware that had to be filled and then covered. Otherwise this one would’ve been left unpainted. Loving all the clean lines on this one though!"    

This Thomasville 3 drawer chest is a perfect example of how you can save a well constructed piece of furniture from the trash pile by updating it with a bit of paint.

The color is equal parts Driftwood and Millstone.
