"Bright and fabulous! This West Elm inspired desk is nothing short of amazing!
As soon as I saw this unique desk Goodwill I knew I had to have it! MCM furniture is one of my favorite styles to flip and this piece was no exception! It was my first time using General Finishes Brushable White Enamel and although there was a bit of a learning curve, I am completely obsessed with the finish and durability! This one is a STUNNER!" - sincerely_katiek
"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...
"Vintage French Provincial desk by Dixie Furniture freshened up using General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White. The hardware is not original to the piece but was on it when I bought it. It suits the style of the desk well." - Garage 9 v2
"As you can see in the 'before' photo this piece had MULTIPLE layers of paint and had cracked over the whole piece. Also the panel on the right door was completely cracked almost all the way up the door.
So first we had to remove as much of the paint as possible with sanding snd chemicals (this was the bulk of the work honestly) and we also removed the top, broken door panel and the shelves.
We then added in new door panels and and created the new shelves and top. The piece was primed and...

"This beautiful Eastlake wash stand dates between 1870-1890. For its age, it was in very good condition with only a few repairs. I used Minwax Classic Cherry stain for the top. The base was painted General Finishes Antique White (1 cup) and Buttermilk (1/8 cup) and finished everything with High Performance Topcoat in satin." - Newbac Designs
The cherry top was stripped and refinished in Minwax Classic Cherry. There was a very dark, thick stain on the top as well as horrible sanding swirls, so it was a challenge to remove the deep swirls and the stain that had soaked deep into the wood. The belt sander was my friend on this one!
The base is painted in a custom creamy white to match her dressers I did earlier this year. It’s...

"I had some time last week and this 1957 Drexel Campagna drop leaf table had been sitting around the shop since last year, so I figured now was as good as time as any!! The apron, legs and chairs are all finished in General Finishes Enduro White Poly and as I was sanding the top down I noticed that it was a beautiful Walnut Veneer with Pecan accent so all that needed was to be sealed with GF Arm-R-Seal to make it pop! Reupholstered the chairs in a cool check pattern and it was complete. This...

"This smelly, stained, wobbly MCM sewing table was completely restored and refinished; from the severely damaged wood top all the way down to the brass leg caps. Not a detail was missed.
Blood (literally, the cuts on my hands are still healing), sweat (so much sweat), and tears went into this piece so to say it tested me would be the understatement of the year. That's why I'm always grateful for these challenges and their fast approaching deadlines. Sometimes I do my best work under...

The top was sanded bare and re-stained with General Finishes Gel Stain in Java, then sealed with their High Performance Topcoat in Flat. The original, Hepplewhite style pulls were left as is."
"And here is the gorgeous table! The final piece of a beautiful dining set my clients parents owned in Germany that she inherited and brought back to the states and will eventually go to her daughters.
The table had been previously painted so I stripped all of the old paint off to start fresh. I never just paint over old paint as I can’t guarantee my finish since I do not know the steps the previous painter took to prepare the piece for paint. After stripping, cleaning, sanding and cleaning...
"This buffet was quite the undertaking but so worth the effort!! After stripping it down, sanding and scrubbing I painted it in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and lightly distressed the edges.

Some topcoat and new knobs make this baby SHINE!!" - Upcycling by Amy
