"This custom dresser needed a lot of love and repairs but we brought her back to life! Painted in one my most popular color combinations, General Finishes Coastal Blue and Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The original hardware was painted gold and beautiful floral liner was added to the drawers."
"This sweet Antique Half Moon Table is ready to go back home! This antique table holds a special place in my client's heart as it belonged to her mother. She wasn’t looking to change it but definitely wanted to bring it back to life. We completely refinished it with General Finishes Antique Walnut and a custom tinted High Performance Satin finish. A perfect match to the original look!"
"I love the way these farmhouse style tables turned out!!! My client chose General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint with lots of distressing and satin top coat!"
"This lovely antique commode was in phenomenal shape and just needed to be cleaned and refreshed. The top was sanded and stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut (Gel Stain) while the body was painted in General Finishes Perfect Gray. I then distressed the piece some and added dark wax for contrast and protection. I also gave it new antique bronze hardware."
"This was one of those pieces that I knew immediately could not be made better with paint. It was a light stain. It was, up close, pretty beat up. But it had fantastic bones and details! Stripped, sanded, filled and stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut (Gel Stain). It’s a long exhausting process! But worth it in the end♥️"
"This piece was sanded down raw, white washed in Antique White by General Finishes, and sealed in their High Performance Topcoat. New hardware has been added for a faux card catalog look and new paper in the drawers."
"I fell in love with the last red one so much that I new this piece was getting the same finish. Now that she’s finished I have to say this one is a stunner!!! I’m so glad I chose the red, this piece needed a bold color. General Finishes Holiday Red with Van Dyke Brown glaze and Antique Walnut Gel Stain for the top and legs."
"All done! She's a stunner in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint with Antique Walnut Gel Stain in the legs. She got some new feet, new molding and a smooth top with some veneer removal. Ready for a new life."

Mid century pieces are for sure growing on me. I love the simple lines and being able to mix wood grain with paint, my favorite thing to do! This dresser did not last long in my inventory, in fact I had a waiting list of interest. I will for sure be the hunt for more! Jill was the lucky lady who got to pick the colors that worked best in her home. She chose the beautiful color combination of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain with Coastal Blue Milk Paint, one of my favorite combos...
"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
"Coffee anyone? Coffee table that is ☕! Painted in General Finishes Linen Milk Paint and the top stained in Antique Walnut with a second coat of Java. Same with the knobs as well and sealed in a flat top coat." - Upcycling by Amy
This old gal brings flair to any room . Not your tech look. But for those of us that beat to a different drum and live of the beated path. Its the perfect fit.
"I love to paint furniture but sometimes the job calls for completely stripping and refinishing. It takes a lot of hard work but it turned out even better than I could have hoped for! Stained with General Finishes Gel Stain in Antique Walnut (the light parts being wiped back with mineral spirits to accentuate the lighter wood) and sealed with GF Arm-R-Seal. The first two coats were gloss for clarity and the last coat was satin to tone it down to a gentle glow. I don’t normally include a...
We did a bathroom remodel for our very tiny master bathroom. We needed a small vanity. We had my husbands parents old microwave cart just sitting in the garage and realized it was the perfect size but hated the yellow oak. I decided to give the General Finish Gel stain a try. It was my first time ever using it and I couldn’t believe how easy it was! I sanded the top down to the raw wood but wasn’t able to get the legs completely sanded down so I was concerned it would be splotchy. It...
This was a piece for the books. She was old, moldy, dirty, barn fresh, bird poo covered, but yet still had a lot of potential. We needed a bathroom vanity for our bathroom and I knew she would be perfect! After lots of elbow grease, she was thoroughly cleaned. For some reason she had lots of drill holes all over so those were filled with putty. This dresser was sanded and prepped, we cut her legs off and cut her depth down to fit in our super tiny bathroom. Her base was painted in GF...
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...
This unique oval desk with the burlwood top begged for the burlwood desktop to be the star of the show, and man o man, is it ever! To play up it's stunning beauty, I chose to downplay this uniquely-shaped desk's "body" with a 50/50 blend of General Finishes Bone White Chalk Paint and General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint...a perfect blend, in my humble opinion. The body is finished off in three coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Satin. But the real stunner of this...
Custom Green of Emerald + Linen + Dark Chocolate
Antique Walnut Top and High Performance in Flat
I was drawn to this dresser because of the combination of drawers and doors. It was covered in layers of sloppily applied paint and I originally just planned to refresh the paint. However, as I was prepping and lightly sanding, I noticed these vertical lines on the drawer fronts coming through the paint. After sanding the drawers more heavily, the wood panels were revealed and my vision began to take shape. I started with a couple of fresh coats of Persian Blue Milk paint. I followed that...
What was once a well loved and badly worn vanity, is now a charming pair of long legged nightstands. We began this project by separating the side portions of the vanity from the center to form two separate nightstands. Extensive repairs were completed to fix wood and veneer damage as well as molds being made to mimic missing trim on the draw fronts. Once this lovely pair was structurally solid, we cleaned and prepped our surface for paint and stain. The body of each was hand painted in...
Gorgeous chair makeover with General Finishes Java and Antique Walnut Gel Stain by Sewphisticated Upholstery.
"I'm excited to share the photos of the recent transformation this channel back underwent during my 3-day upholstery workshop in Lodi, CA. Lots of little details were added after the workshop and I'm loving the end result. I used Barrow Industries Freya and Flatbread fabrics that make this everyday channel back truly a one-of-a-kind piece.
I will say I came away from...
This Faux wood finish was created by a base coat of Seagull Gray milk paint, dry brushed on Antique Walnut Gel Stain, then a white and brown glaze! I literally made this finish up by getting out all my products out, giving them a good stare for about 30 minutes, then a little trial and error. End result was a happy client!
"There is something about taking wood that has seen better days and making it beautiful again that I find so satisfying. This buffet top had some deep scratches and water stains before I stripped and sanded it. Now look at it!! Using General Finishes Gel Stain in Antique Walnut looks amazing on this piece." - ReLoved Rubble
Stained shims really added some much needed texture to this boring flat front dresser. A mixture of General Finishes Queenstown and Lamp Black with High performance flat topcoat. Shims stained in Antique walnut.

The Southern Hills coffee table features a two-tone white and weathered driftwood finish.
The top was custom made with new wood cut and attached in a herringbone pattern.
The detailed cut-out apron and elegant turned legs were painted in Antique White. The herringbone top was given a wash with diluted driftwood paint. Antique white was then dry brushed over the top, creating a refined rustic look.
"Another black and wood beauty! I absolutely love this color trend and think it suits this buffet perfectly! I had so much fun playing around with the design when deciding which parts to paint and where to show off the wood grain. I think the end result looks super sophisticated and classy. The body is hand painted in General Finishes Black Pepper Chalk Style Paint and sealed with Annie Sloan black wax. The top was stripped down to raw wood then stained in a mix of Antique Walnut and Java Gel...
"This gorgeous antique solid wood desk has been given a total makeover! The body is hand painted in a custom grey using a mix of General Finishes Seagull Gray, Queenstown Gray, and their Slate Gray Chalk Style Paint. It is sealed with Annie Sloan clear wax on the body for a great sheen, and the top received multiple layers of GF High Performance Topcoat for extra durability. The dovetail drawers were stripped, sanded and stained in a mix of Gray and Antique Walnut Gel Stain, then whitewashed...
"This custom painted solid wood beauty just received a fresh new look! It was hand painted in General Finishes Rembrandt Red Chalk Style Paint with touches of Black Pepper Chalk Style Paint for shading. It is sealed with Annie Sloan clear and black wax. This was my first time trying Rembrandt Red, and I am in LOVE with this color. It's a sophisticated crimson with the perfect balance of brightness and depth. I love how well it pairs with farmhouse styling. The buffet top was stripped, sanded...
"When I started on this 102 year old Empire dresser I would never have guessed it would end up like this! This gorgeous ribbon veneer was hidden from the world under a deep opaque cherry stain for far too long.
My client had a preferred color but also understood that wood furniture can have a mind (and color) of its own, and old finishes can penetrate so deep that sometimes you aren’t left with a lot of options. I am pleased to report that my hours of stripping and sanding paid off and...

"My favorite new piece of the year! Completed in all GF products. Candlelite and Antique Walnut Gel Stain. Tribal batik pattern in Linen. Entire piece sealed with 3 coats Arm-R-Seal in semi gloss." - Wild at Heart - Fibers & Furnishings
"So here he is all done up and ready for a fresh start. When I picked this piece up it was left out on the curb and hours away from being scooped up by our bulk trash pick up (before pictures towards the end). I saw this sad dresser sitting in the rain and looked passed all the imperfections and saw potential! Since this Mid century modern dresser is a Heywood Wakefield it’s made of all solid wood, no veneer here which is why I was able to work a miracle on the top. I used a customs mix toner...

Recognize this deep blue??? It’s that same custom color mix I’ve done a few times recently - General Finishes Coastal Blue mixed with a touch of Queenstown Gray. It’s so pretty.
