"This piece definitely needed to be brightened up. The dark stain just made this piece so sad and drab.The top of the dresser and all the drawer faces were sanded down and that beautiful light pine started to shine. I didn’t want too much yellow so I clear coated all the sanded surfaces with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat. My hubby reminded me that it’s been awhile since I used that beautiful GF Tuscan Red so that made my decision. The exterior was hand painted and then accented with...
"Haven’t used a lot of red, but I sure love this Tuscan Red! Used Java Gel Stain on the top and High Performance water based topcoat in satin. Along with the mud cloth stencil, this turns this boring old cabinet into a boho focal point!" - Jess's Mess Designs
"Adorable primitive antique farmhouse cabinet/dresser painted in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed, aged and finished. This piece is full of farmhouse charm with a transfer by Re·design with Prima added. This antique piece would add character to any home as a buffet, coffee bar, entryway cabinet or dresser." - Rosie's Rustics
"Refinished in General Finishes Holiday Red with black wax to add depth to the beautiful piece, this desk/vanity is absolutely gorgeous. The gold gilding wax applied to the lovely flower detail gives this piece a glam touch. Drawers were lined with a pretty paper to complement the color. New hardware added and spray painted."
"This rustic old world piece was refinished in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed and waxed. The top was refinished in General Finishes water-based Provincial stain. The hardware was accented with an antique bronze. Took a little risk with a red piece but could be a beautiful accent piece in an entryway or maybe even a coffee bar!☕ So many things to imagine and just felt inspired to put a little pop of color out there during the Christmas holiday!!!" - Estrella Design
"Here we go again with a fabulous color and I have to thank General Finishes for creating Tuscan Red...I'm using my supply up pretty quickly and I think it’s time to place another order!❤️ The buffet top and doors were first sanded down. I did the same to the single door cabinet panels and the drawer face. I then created a custom grain stain with General Finishes Java Gel Stain and Arm-R-Seal. The remainder of the pieces were painted in the Tuscan Red. I updated the pulls with wood pumpkin...
"Adorable cabinet painted in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed and finished. Sanded and stained top for a two tone look. Original glass with two removable shelves inside doors. New glass knobs added for easy opening. Original key that works on middle cabinet compartment."
"I found myself choosing General Finishes Tuscan Red again...such a beautiful color which is rich, deep and amazing. Originally my plan had been to keep the veneer intact on this Vintage Art Deco Nightstand but unfortunately the repair wasn’t working. I was able to save the door's beautiful veneer so I first sanded it then added the stencil above and below to create a division between the two wood grains. The exterior was painted in the Tuscan Red and I added black wax to deepen the color....
"I sanded down the top and the drawer face. I’m pretty sure this is constructed of pine so I decided to burn a bit of the grain. I left the tiles intact with their original brown color because I think it went nicely with the colors in the knob and the red. The remainder was painted in General Finishes Tuscan Red. I also added a dark wax to give it an aged look. The drawer was lined with Waverly fabric and a new pumpkin knob was added to tie together all the colors."

"This vintage chest was transformed with General Finishes Milk Paint in Holiday Red. We kicked it up a notch with re•design with prima®️ transfer on the drawer fronts."
"Red 100% scares us but we decided to jump way outside of our comfort zone for this one. We had inspiration from a rug with fun pops of color in it to design a kids room area in our store. We painted all the other pieces first, mustard yellow, bold blue, soft beachglass... Those were easy and in our wheel house. The last color choice to fit in with the scheme either had to be red or orange. So we filled up our paint sprayer with Holiday Red from General Finishes and made it happen. It's...
