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...
"The power of white paint! Alabaster by General Finishes really lightens up this dresser! The top was stripped and stained in GF Graystone Water Based Stain." - Flipping Unbelievable
"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...
"Love Love Love this absolutely gorgeous mirrored cabinet! We painted this piece in General Finishes Enduro satin White Poly. Such a statement piece!" - Belle Maison
"Gorgeous, vintage, mahogany chest of drawers. This Duncan Phyfe style piece also boasts a bow front. This piece was updated using General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White, with some light distressing. 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. I wanted to do something special with the top and legs so I mixed a custom stain of General Finishes Whitewash, Tobacco and Graystone Water Based Stains. Some topcoat and new knobs make this baby SHINE!!" - Upcycling by Amy
"My clients messaged me about this desk that has been in the family for a long time. She wanted to keep it in the family for even longer and to bring it new life with a beautiful new paint and stain.
Top in General Finishes Java Gel Stain and body painted with GF Snow White. With this new lease on life it should be in the family for generations to come." - Ray's Refurbishing

"Painted in General Finishes Linen with dark walnut legs, this piece is timeless.." - Katie + Company Home
"Wrapped up a large built in bookshelf yesterday for a customer in Pittsburgh. All custom made using a combination of birch plywood, MDF and solid poplar. Spray finished with General Finishes White Poly tinted to match customer’s existing trim. Had a lot of fun on this one matching a small bead detail on the crown molding that was everywhere else throughout the customer’s home.
The base cabinets were also designed so that the existing tall base molding wouldn’t need to be cut out. A similar...
We have Spring Fever over here! I just finished this little cutie in General Finishes Snow White and then added a touch of whimsy.

"Lamps aren’t something I normally do but when my long time friend asked, I happily accepted the challenge. General Finishes Snow White gave these a fresh new look!" - Elm Street Designs
"A modern update to a dated piece! This piece is solid cherry wood. I wasn’t a fan of the shell design in the trim so I removed the entire base and built out a new one. Added some modern feet to bring it back to a decent height.
I went way over budget with the new hardware but I think it was well worth it! Body is General Finishes Alabaster, the perfect shade of white. I added a raised stencil to the top row of drawers.
Top was stripped and sanded and finished in General Finishes Dye...

"Solid maple wood buffet. This gorgeous buffet was not always quite this stunning. After a good cleaning and some elbow grease, I sanded the top down to the original wood and stained it in General Finishes Ash Gray Gel Stain. For the body, I chose General Finishes Alabaster, a beautiful mix of Antique White and Snow White. The hardware also got a fresh look in antique bronze. The edges were given a light distressing for that worn, antiqued effect." - Ray's Refurbishing

"This is a fun before and after!
My client kept this piece of her father’s after he passed away and asked me if there was anything that could be done with it. New shelves, new door, removed the crown molding, filled holes, new hardware, and a fresh paint job. It keeps the structure but gives it an update. Paint color: General Finishes Antique White" - Flipping Unbelievable
"This gorgeous buffet is painted in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint with a natural top!" - Belle Maison

"Took twice as long to finish than anticipated but salvaging that wood was SO worth it! MCM set refinished in General Finishes crisp Brushable White Enamel in satin which is extremely durable. Metallic gold stencil added to some of the drawer fronts. These pieces were sanded completely down, then I used Waterlox on that gorgeous walnut. No stain! All original solid wood hardware." - Elm Street Designs
