"This... my lovely friends.... is Gail. As many of you saw my earlier post- we named her Gail even before we found out that her previous owner's name WAS indeed Gail... creepy. Anyways, we're fairly certain that's the point that the creep factor ends because what lays beyond that is just pure and simple... Class. A beautiful example of simple French inspired design with clean lines and delicate decor. Gail has been refreshed after a full sand down and shellac base, in General Finishes Empire...
"Did I mention how much I love the beading on this set? If these didn’t belong to a client, I’d keep them for sure. Finished in General Finishes Seagull Gray and Maison Blanche Paint Company black wax to make those details pop."
"Beautiful solid wood buffet freshly painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray and the the top was sanded down and freshly stained in GF’s Antique Walnut Gel Stain the bottom three drawers were also sanded and stained Antique Walnut. Stained areas were poly coated and the rest was dark waxed for protection."
"This table tested me in many ways but I am always up for a challenge and the end result was beyond worth it. This table was well loved throughout the years, passed down from mother to daughter. The inlay was severely warped and damaged particle board but overall this piece had really good bones. I removed the particle board and built the stunning poplar herringbone inlay. Painted in General Finishes Driftwood and stained in Varathane Dark Walnut, lightly distressed, and sealed, with beautiful...
"This piece was once the bottom of a kitchen hutch. I removed the top and just refinished the base. The top was refinished using Graystone Water Based Wood Stain by General Finishes. The base was painted in their Perfect Gray Milk Paint."
"The original plan had to been to save the veneer but you know how things go...so I tore all the veneer off and found amazing wood underneath. I sanded it all down, burned it a bit and then clear coated it with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. Next the base was painted with General Finishes Perfect Gray then lightly distressed and glazed and sealed. The drawer face was sanded and sealed like the top then I added Waverly Fabric and D. Lawless Hardware Oiled Bronze Cup Pull."
"Completely Refinished Vintage Solid Wood Desk. This piece which included the top and all the drawers was completely sanded down. I did burn the top and drawers to help accentuate that amazing wood grain (still trying to figure out the species of wood...). Several coats of polyurethane were applied to provide a well protected work surface. The remainder of the piece was hand painted with General Finishes Queenstown Gray. This unique color almost reminds me of slate which pulls in both blues and...
"Loving this smooth gray Mid-century mis-matchy set in General FinishesEmpire Gray with Fusion Mineral Paint Natural Stain and Finishing Oil on the drawers. A few veneer chips, but overall, this is a really nice wood set by The Real McCoy."

"I decided to do something different with this piece. I painted a couple snow capped mountains, and then painted the top in General Finishes Empire Gray. The other colors are a mix of Antique White, Empire Gray, and Lamp Black. How cool would this piece be for a nursery, as a toy box, or a cool little dresser?"

"This vintage Jacobean style credenza is gorgeous! Painted in Perfect Gray Milk Paint by General Finishes. I used combination of weathered wood and walnut stains for the cabinet accent panels, drawer fronts and top. Everything was distressed and then I used a Hemp Furniture Oil and finally, Furniture Wax by Annie Sloan on the entire piece. Honestly, the cabinet panels and drawer fronts look like worn leather in person...it is absolutely gorgeous! The entire piece has a time worn, rustic,...

"Just finished up this fabulous Primitive Table and Chair. Perfect set for parents working from home these days including their kids schooling remotely.
Although not a match and bought separately I still think both of them paired well.
This primitive table had years of gentle use do it was sanded down and then sealed in a Polyurethane. The base was then painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray. It was my first time using this color and I love it! The shade leans towards the blue side...

"A vintage dresser makes the best gifts for children, because it’s an investment in a quality, one of kind piece of furniture that can grow with the child. This one is special to me as I refinished this for my niece, who just became a big sister and is embracing the role and new look of her bedroom as she transitions.
It’s not always that easy to convince someone that the picture of a yellow, dirty ugly looking dresser with broken hardware is going to be perfect. I’m glad my sister-in-law...
"By far, this dresser is my favorite piece we have ever done, and we get to look at it everyday! When we found out we were having a boy this dresser came to mind. I knew I wanted a unique look, I wanted a mix of wood and metal and a dark blue. Soon after, this dresser came along and I claimed it as ours! We used General Finishes Arm-R-Seal to bring out the beautiful raw wood and painted the rest Queenstown Gray, then we finished it off with some new hardware to complete the look!" - Moses...

"Tall dark and handsome accurately describes this dresser. Painted in General Finishes Driftwood with Provincial Water Based stain on the top and top drawer."
"I love how this timeless beauty turned out! The serpentine top drawers combined with the curved sides gives this piece just the right amount of details! The color, size, and design of this antique dresser makes it an ideal piece for any decor. The back is also painted so this piece can go against a wall or stand on its own.
For the body I used General Finishes Queenstown Gray, it’s a very smooth, deep charcoal grey. I absolutely love it!! I then lightly distressed along the edges, and...

This winning combination looks good on just about everything!"
"This one is a keeper! My husband got this record cabinet for free from a friend. After removing the old door and speaker sections, I added two new doors from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and painted everything in General Finishes Queenstown Gray. The top was stripped and sealed to reveal a gorgeous wood grain.
This will hold my dad’s record collection which I recently inherited, so has special meaning to me. Lots of records will be played on this piece, as it was originally...
Beautiful dresser painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray and lightly coated with black wax for added characteristics."
"This absolutely stunning buffet is all refreshed and ready for a new home. This lovely lady had great bones but was in desperate need of a face lift. The veneer on top was chipping away so I removed it completely and sanded the wood underneath. Gave it a fresh coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain, I also did the same to the lower section of this piece. The rest was painted in General Finishes Reverent Gray. The stained areas were sealed with GF High Performance Topcoat, and...

"This end table was painted in General Finishes Perfect Gray with Smokey Gray Glaze over it for a subtle color contrast. Glaze is always a good way to add a little bit of depth to a piece instead of having one solid color. General Finishes has a few different glaze colors to choose from, depending on the look desired."

French Provincial dresser with a flawless sprayed finish of General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint.
"I couldn’t be more pleased with how this project turned out! I have always loved the antique card catalogs but they are crazy hard to find and sooo expensive so I made a new version! It took several hours to turn a this once boring dresser into a faux antique catalogue I painted it in a new General Finishes color called Reverent Gray then aged it to perfection with my chippy paint technique and added Van dyke glaze with a super smooth layer of matte top coat for extra protection!"
"This dresser might look familiar. I had previously refinished it but was thinking of adding legs instead of its boxy base. After awhile I just couldn’t get that thought out of my head so I ended up sawing off the bottom part of the dresser and adding legs. I’m glad I did. The legs just feel right on this. It always seems a little strange to saw a perfectly good piece of furniture but sometimes it is worth it. This is a professionally sprayed finish, there are no brush strokes. The color is...
