This is a true rags to riches. This dresser was so broke that the free store for the homeless GAVE it to me- not a joke! I used to work at the shelter, & the warehouse manager said "gurrrllll, do you want this?" I was planning to take the handles and burn the rest! Ha! My Man Friend said "we can fix that!"
I rolled my eyes but he did! Painted in GF Coastal Blue, with GF Copper Pearl Effects, this Cinderella is sealed in GF High Performance Satin & was quickly purchased by an...
This petite antique writing has lovely proportions and a solid frame so just needed a visual update to make her more modern. After a full strip and prime, I painted her in Gf linen and used a Walnut stain for the interior. I replaced the leather writing top also. The golden sun rays was stenciled using GF Burnished pearl and then the whole piece sealed using High Performance Top Coat. The original drop handles were polished using gold Rub N buff.
"This gorgeous client owned piece was updated using General Finishes Seagull Gray Milk Paint and glazed with Argentine Pearl and Pitch Black Glaze Effects. Gorgeous!! ❤️" - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration
With all of the details on this coffee table I knew I wanted to do something with lots of layers. First I painted the base in Driftwood Gray, a nice medium gray color. Next I added a topcoat preparing it for the glaze. I used pitch black glaze effects to get in all the little areas and make them pop. For the final step I used the Argentine Pearl Effects along with the pitch black glaze to layer a texture on the entire piece. I used a short stubby brush to pounce the products on the...

Absolutely stunning buffet by Julie McDowell - Design Artist!
"To say this was a labour of love would be an understatement. I have hand embossed every surface of this beast. I used different stencils and used Durhams Wood Putty to create a very flat raised stencil. It was then sanded down to make it very smooth but still raised. General Finishes Holiday Red as my base coat, GF Pearl Effects in Burnished and GF Van Dyke Glaze applied without a top coat on the pearl. Three coats of GF...

"When I saw Refurbished Gentleman, LLC post a bombay chest he did in his Hammered Copper technique I knew I wanted to try it. Lucky for me, he did a tutorial for a group I'm in. Then the search was on for the right piece. I found it back in November and slowly started working on it when I had time. I'm thrilled to say, he's done....and he's available! Painted in General Finishes Lamp Black and Copper Pearl Effects." - A Touch of Whimsy
