"This piece was damaged in my clients last move by the movers. The leg was cracked, and splitting from the back on the base to the front. We made the decision to cut part of the legs off, and build a custom base.Repaired the damage, used some good old bondo and you would never known it was man handled by the movers.  We changed out the hardware, filled the holes, primed, and painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray. Followed with my favorite topcoat, GF High Performance flat." - Revived...

Gorgeous in General Finishes Queenstown Gray Water Based Milk Paint.  
"I stripped the top, which is laminate, and gave it an extra heavy sand with 80 grit sandpaper. Usually 220 is sufficient but this was extra slick. The paint was adhering well to the body so I gave it a really good sand and gave the entire piece three coats of primer, checked for adhesion issues and everything was sticking. The paint color is a custom light, warm gray. I used General Finishes Snow White and Antique White in equal parts (1 cup each) and added a little Perfect Gray (1/8 cup)...

"This super sized bedroom set got a complete makeover! It’s amazing how different furniture looks with just paint and new hardware.

I sprayed 2 coats of BIN Primer, 3 coats of paint and 3 coats of poly...

"General Finishes Empire Gray bodies and a deep stained top - but as I was sanding and stripping down, I quickly decided it might be a highly couture look if we stained the top rows too! Ended up with a high-end custom look instead of just a painted dresser. Super modern and yet completely timeless set- for years to come! Hand applied Arm-R-Seal top over a deep Kona stain on those oak fronts." - Restoration Reserve

I used my Fuji Spray HVLP to spray a smooth finish on this large beauty. The color is Empire Gray by General Finishes and it’s a warm gray color. The original hardware is so unique that it couldn’t be replaced and I love how it all came together." - Flipping Unbelievable
