"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.

"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...

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...
