The drawers have been rebuilt, painted in GF Queenstown and now function perfectly with updated matte black hardware. The top is in stained in a layer of Minwax weathered oak followed...

"When a member of your family needs you to refinish their buffet. It’s a definite must! Here's the before and after of their beautiful antique buffet I just completed.

"I just can’t help myself when I see small squares, I must add label pulls! This wood console table was first painted in General Finishes Seagull Gray followed by a dry brushing of gray stain and brown glaze. The top has been stained with a custom blend of Graystone and Walnut. Oil rubbed bronze label pulls and knobs finish off this transformation."

"This antique table/writing desk was in bad shape when it first came to me. It was sporting a rather orange pine patina and an uneven top. My friend Greg of The Furniture Fix made a new top for me, and I stained it with General Finishes "Graystone" Water Based Wood Stain. To compliment the gorgeous gray stain, the base was painted in Driftwood Milk Paint."

Beautiful dresser in General Finishes Empire Gray Milk Paint 

"This is one of those pieces that reminds me I really ❤️ what I do. This dresser was a gift from my clients grandfather when she was a young girl. And while it was pretty beaten up she just couldn’t stand to part with it. So she asked me if there was anything that could be done to bring this sentimental piece back to life and I was up for the challenge!   After several repairs I started by sanding down the pine top and staining it with General Finishes Java Gel Stain. The body of the...

"This table threw us a few curve balls but it turned out even better then originally planned! The table top and chair seats were first painted in General Finishes Seagull Gray and then I applied Graystone water based stain. I wiped the stain off and feathered it back on in some areas until I achieved this soft driftwood look. The legs of the table and chairs were painted in Empire gray, a beautiful gray that compliments the top perfectly!"
