"Custom Rustic Chic Buffet. In its original state this one had been hit hard by the ugly stick. It was GOLD with the most hideous hardware I've ever seen.
The stunning lines caught my eye and it was a perfect candidate for redesign. All hardware was removed and reconfigured using simple hand finished wood pulls... which tie in beautifully to the custom built top. The top has a multi layered dye stain finish that produces a lovely aged finish. The round accent areas on front and sides had...

Drawers were finished in GF Queenstown Gray and given multiple layers of antique wash. Fully sealed in flat finish. The original base was removed and iron legs added and...

"Ethan Allen Baumritter dresser. As you can see from the before pictures, this piece was in really rough shape. But knowing it’s solid maple I knew I could sand through most of the nastiness. Top stained in dark walnut. Body refinished in General Finishes Perfect Gray and distressed." - Elm Street Designs
"This adorable little piece is mostly wood but does have some some engineered material on the sides. The top is also laminate.
Since the top was laminate I was not able to stain it,I chose to paint this entire piece in General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint. I also gave it some fresh new black hardware." - Ray's Refurbishing
"Antique Pine Blanket Chest. The before pic says it all. 6 rounds of stripping the top and legs of old varnish to get down to natural wood. Custom flat molding and beaded wood trim provide a beautiful backdrop for its hand applied raised floral finish. A layered antique wash over General Finishes Seagull Gray gives depth and age to the finish. This would be stunning at the foot of the bed in a master suite, as an entry piece for holding shoes or for use as a storage bench." - Raised...

"Vaughan Bassett oak dresser. I admittedly struggled with design on this one. My brain is mush this week and I was so undecided on which route to take.
Remove base like I normally do? I almost did, because smashing stuff with a hammer is satisfying. But this piece is so well built that I couldn’t do it. Distress it? Glaze it? Do a natural white wash? I finally opted on a timeless combo of General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint and dark walnut stain." - Elm Street Designs

Everything was sprayed using my Fuji Spray sprayer for a smooth and flawless finish." - Flipping Unbelievable

And I’m happy and honored to paint this piece for my client that now she will keep in her home and...
