"Sometimes you have to look beyond the "what is" and see the "what can be"... The before and after simply speaks for itself  There were a MILLION little nail holes and exposed sunken screw heads in its construction...which all had to have 2 rounds of filling and sanding. Because this is knotty pine...2 full coats of primer before 2 coats of finish and sealer. General Finishes Linen and High Performance flat finish sealer. The botanical paper backing, addition of petite beaded trim and...
"Solid wood, vintage French Provincial dresser by Harmony House. The finish on this was originally a cream enamel which just had a lot of wear on it. It was cleaned well and repainted with General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White. No distressing on this one. The original hardware was left as is. I think it’s perfect!" - Garage 9 v2

Before and After General Finishes Linen Milk Paint     
"Vintage Regency 9 Drawer Buffet/Media/Chest This piece came in structurally perfect but a cosmetic mess. Originally finished in "dirty yellow" with chips, nicks and dents. At 74" long it needed height to give it the presence it deserved. 4 corner mount legs were added. An additional 2 legs were bolted through the center to fully support its length and weight. Finished in timeless General Finishes Antique White. Sealed in General Finishes High Performance flat Topcoat." - Raised Expectations...

A full "gut" of this piece with removal of peeling and chipping veneer followed by patching and leveling of its surfaces. Finished in General Finishes Antique White (a soft non yellow based creamy white). Stunning floral, bird and butterfly motif with a lovely Persian blue background. A simple glass and Antique brass finish pull was the perfect compliment." - Raised Expectations

"I'm thrilled to share this beautiful Demi Lune hallway chest I recently crafted for a valued return client. She chose the exquisite shade Linen by General Finishes and I must say, it's a perfect match for this timeless piece.

Being entrusted with the task of refinishing several pieces for their new space is truly an honor." - The Picket Fence of Celina, TX   s.

"This pine piece has been rebuilt, reworked and redesigned with a coastal/farmhouse feel. Originally sitting flush to the floor, a mitered wood trim base was added and full build out on bottom and back to accommodate new iron legs. It's original "flat" front was built to add dimension and interest. Its 10 drawers now "appear" to be 16. Shiny Silver pulls complete the look. A custom top was built and added in a light natural "driftwood" inspired dye stain wash. The body has been...
"Wow, what a custom order! One thing I really enjoy is keeping anything I sand down its original color and I got to do just that with this piece, I mean look at the top of the dresser  I used General Finishes Antique White on this piece and just top coated the top with polycrylic top coat! We added new hardware and she couldn’t have turned out any better!" - Restored by Linds    
"Vintage, 9-drawer dresser by Styline Ferdinand, and likely was made in the 1970s. This sturdy piece is constructed from a combination of wood and engineered materials. The drawer boxes are dovetailed at the backs and rabbet joined at the fronts. They work properly. We refreshed this dresser using General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White. It was lightly distressed. The original antique brass hardware was spray painted in oil rubbed bronze." - Garage 9 v2

"Obtaining this darling- we got a heads up as a curb alert from a client and friend while she was in a car, leaving town for the airport. (Y’all are seriously the BEST about hollering when you see good stuff on the curb!!!) Anyways it was sitting out in the rain, and had the worst purple-grey I’d ever seen … latex no less so it was already starting to bubble. We immediately started pulling the paint off (like seriously as soon as I got it on my covers porch) before it hardened again and...

"When first eyeing this beaut, I had no idea what the plan was. She is old and was definitely begging for a makeover. I looked her over and thought she might be an "easy-sand", and if so, a wood "wash" with General Finishes Linen would be perfect. Luckily, this project went according to plan. She has been made new again and is ready to live on with her new, sophisticated look. Her drawers have been lined with a linen fabric and she features white marbled knobs. I say this often, but once...
We absolutely love the transformation of our latest flip. This old, outdated mid century piece came into the shop last month in desperate need of a facelift. We decided to put all of our cards on the table and go all-in on a complete overall. Originally a low dresser from the 1960’s, this piece is now versatile enough to fit in almost every room in your house. It can be used as a dresser, buffet, credenza, or entertainment / tv stand. After stripping everything down to the original veneer...
"Fully redesigned vintage solid maple Ethan Allen three drawer chest. A custom top, custom legs and three drawers built for the appearance of 30 individual drawers. Vintage inspired hardware and vintage label details. Top two drawers have original dividers. Finished in General Finishes Alabaster...a soft creamy white. Fully sealed."     
"Solid wood quality but lacking in style, a full redesign now gives these a edgy, modern transitional style. Finished in General Finishes Antique White. My go-to color as it mixes seamlessly with whites and creams. The addition of new legs add needed height and custom designed wood tops and bottom shelves add an organic element. Beautiful glass and antique brass drawer handles give an added layer of sophistication." - Raised Expectations    
"I’m digging the neutral tones in this one. I really wanted to update the legs. The skirting is solid oak, so instead of adding legs, I had the husband square them off for a more modern look. I love how it turned out.   I used all General Finishes product. I started out with 2 coats of Linen and then sanded and distressed. I made a custom glaze using High Performance Topcoat + Walnut and Onyx Water Based Stains for a deep brown." - ReFabulous Finds by Christina

"I had to remove a few old layers of paint to start with (not an easy/fun task). After hours and hours of removing paint I had to finish it all off with a good sanding the top to the bare wood. After that a good cleaning. Then on to paint and stain. Katie chose java gel for the top. And for the body she wanted white so I used...
