"This solid pine storage bench has been completely transformed from its old boring past and now its future is looking bright!I knew right away I wanted to add a cushion so first I found the fabric and then picked the colors. I started with General Finishes Milk Paint in Linen then added the grain sack stripes in Key West Blue and finished with this beautiful grains stencil in Coastal Blue. The blues matched the fabric exactly and just tied it all together so nicely!"

A newly renovated room

Basically, no matter the size and scope of a remodeling project, chances are that you’ll have at least a somewhat difficult and stressful time during it. The number of contractors and people in general in your home might make you beyond nervous and the fact that everything will look worse before it starts looking better won’t help with the anxiety. 

Add to everything mentioned previously the fact that your entire home will be covered in dust and debris, which will definitely make you...

"I have had a lot of requests for matching nightstands lately. They can be hard to come by but I got lucky finding this oversized set and they turned out beautifully! The tops were striped down to bare wood and stained with General Finishes Java Gel Stain and sealed with Arm R Seal for maximum protection. The bottom was then painted in layers starting with Alabaster, followed by a color wash of Driftwood and a dry brushing of brown glaze. Once I sanded down and blended all three colors I...

"Painted in General Finishes Alabaster Milk Paint and then distressed for a farmhouse look. Sealed in High Performance Top Coat first in Semi Gloss for durability then Flat as the final sheen. New cup pulls in black offer an updated look. I found this crate on the side of the road and had no shame slamming on my brakes and pulling over to grab it." - Flipping Unbelievable

"It has a gorgeous solid oak top stained with a blend of General Finishes Java and Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The chairs and base of the table are painted Antique White and distressed to bring out all the detail." - The Savvy Songbird

This piece has been painted in General Finishes linen and then glazed in their van dyke brown glaze. The top has been planked, stained, and sealed to protect. There is one drawer which slides well, and one shelf for additional storage. A hole has been precut out of the backing for wiring. This is a super cute, solid piece that would work great for your TV. 

These are one of my favorite projects to date. They were falling apart and needed a lot of loving. I fixed them up and stained/painted them to be the seating area in my studio. I love how they turned out! 

This cute set of nightstands was given a handpainted farmhouse makeover! General Finishes Alabaster on the bases and Empire Gray in the tops and feet. They also have new hardware on the drawers including card catalog hardware on the top drawers! 

Farmhouse Nightstands is one of our highly requested furniture items to have in the shop! We have this pair currently available. They are larger than normal vintage nightstand sets so a great choice for those with the modern sized beds. Pairing General Finishes Empire Gray (on the top) with Alabaster White (on the base) is becoming my favorite farmhouse color combo.

6 Chairs: I painted an undertone of GF Driftwood, followed by a custom mix of GF Snow White and Antique White, then lightly distressed to bring through the Driftwood color. 

Table: The base of the table was done exactly like the chairs. As far as the table top goes, I stripped and sanded it down so you could see the beautiful herringbone pattern. I sealed the top with Oil and Wax by Old Barn Milk Paint to help bring out the natural raw beauty of the wood, but everything else is the...

A beautiful three-drawer dresser is done up in Antique white and Wise Owl Furniture Salve. She came with her beautiful wood stain in-tact so I kept it as is just adding the salve to condition the wood. Accented with the General Finishes Antique White to keep her fresh, she is smooth and beautiful for years to come.

 

I fell in love with this piece and wanted to give it a modern spin, but keep the natural beauty of the wood.

I painted the body stain blocker and snow white milk paint.  After sanding the wood I loved the natural wood and the different colors that showed with each drawers so I just sealed with with Gel poly and the ombre' wood colors came to life.

"Painted in the NEW General Finishes Alabaster, a mix of Snow White and Antique White, this piece is lightly distressed with a WeatherWash Coatings Rusted top, the sealed with Fusion Mineral Paint Stain and Finishing Oil in Natural. It's boasting new crystal pulls & it's stunning!" - Flipping Fabulous    

Not going to lie- this little bathroom vanity is oh so vain. Who can blame her with such character and details? Glamorous gold flaunting and delicate wood moldings enhance the luxurious styling of this repurposed sewing cabinet. More chic than shabby, this modern twist to farmhouse decor is just what your powder room needs! Hand painted with General Finishes Snow White and Lamp Black, and sealed with their top coat. 

This oak chest-of-drawers was brought back to life with a mixture of GF Snow White and Antique White. The handles were orginally rust/iron, but I dry brushed and sanded them with GF Lamp Black to give the piece some character. The whole thing was sealed with GF HPTC, flat. 

These were such a fun project! We originally bought the pair, but only one had the faux apothecary card catalog look. So we took a router to the other dresser drawers to create the same look! Can you tell which one?? Each dresser opens up to either 3 or 4 drawers with the stunning new label pulls. Painted in a rich cream with fresh wood tops! These dressers are ones that I just couldn't part with. 

Dresser/Nightstand combo painted in a custom mix of Antique White and Snow White milkpaint.  Dresser drawer fronts were stained in a grey penetrating stain, then accented with Van Dyke and Winter White glaze effects and a kiss of black wax.

The french countryside came calling when this piece was transformed from a china hutch to a french-infused multi-purpose etagere. Using a 50/50 mix of GF Chalk White and GF Chapin Gray on the body, with the detailing done in GF Chalk White and Modern Masters metallic paint bringing life and vibrance to the carved florals, the colors in this piece are reminiscent of traditional country french furniture of old. This piece is now enjoying new life!

"Hello Camilla! A French Country Glam dream. This vintage server has been refinished in GF Antique White, Snow White and highlighted in brown and white glazes. Beautiful cobalt blue floral decoupage brings charming sophistication to this ornate piece. Stunning crystal and sapphire blue hardware have been added." - Revive In Style

"This client owned piece recently received a major overhaul. The ornate style just wasn’t working for her... not to mention failing veneer and missing decorative accents.   My challenge, create a simpler yet elegant piece of furniture.   As beautiful as ornate pieces can be, sometimes there is a bit too much going on. Ornamentation should compliment a piece, not distract from its beauty. I chose to accentuate the beautiful carved wood accents.   General Finishes Linen Milk...
