Antique White

"This piece is everything a modern farmhouse decorator could ask for! Crisp Antique White, matte black hardware, subtle distressing, and a NEW stain color called Carbon Gray by General Finishes. There are some pieces that I have the hardest time parting with, and this is one!" 

"Antique White Milk Paint for the win again. I have to admit I don’t always like painting white but when I do the end results are always amazing. This piece has a raised stencil on the drawer fronts and a gorgeous flower design on the top corners. ❤️❤️"     

Having an extra property that you could rent is considered a luxury nowadays so you have to treat it as such. Luckily, in recent years, the popularity of Airbnb has made it easy to rent your space and earn extra income. In case you own a beach house, you’re probably booked as it is, but in order to make it more appealing to your guests, it’s necessary to give your house...

"I am loving how this antique dresser turned out!!!!! Our client chose General Finishes Antique White with Dark Chocolate for the top and satin top coat!     And as you can see I may have gotten some of the fall decor out already....    

"This sweet antique vanity was brought back to life by Silverleaf Interiors using a blend of Ballet Pink and Antique White. The crowing touch was Burnished Gold Pearl Effects on the carvings."

"This table was brought to us, your average, run of the mill golden oak color, but with sanding, General Finishes Candlelite Gel Stain & Arm-R-Seal, it is gorgeous! The base is painted with GF Antique White Milk Paint & sealed with High Performance Satin. The art is a DIY frame from Hobby Lobby, given color by a mix of Fusion Mineral Paint & the NEW Summer re•design with prima®️ Floral Collection decor transfer with 2 decor waxes, Gravity & Eternal Gold, with a touch of Fusion...

"Hello color! This Art Deco Era Waterfall Curio just had one heck of a makeover! Painted in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint on the exterior and Coral Crush on the inside. We added one of the brand new ReDesign by Prima Floral Transfers." - 

Many of us live in concrete jungles, and it’s not uncommon to start feeling the need for nature, greenery, and everything that comes with it. However, in order to satisfy that need, we’d often have to travel outside the city, go to the countryside for the weekend, or wait until our summer vacation. That is, unless you’re fortunate enough to have a house with a backyard. In that case, you can easily bring nature to you. And, due to the listed need for nature, having a house with such a...

"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

Our return client lives in a modern rustic house on 5 acres. She has a keen eye for art and asked us to be creative. This was a painters dream! We found an inspiration piece and went to work. We hand painted GF Antique White using a crosshatch method. GF Brick Red and Somerset Gold were painted in meandering stripes. A wash of Antique White was used over the red. The hardware was sprayed in Rustoleum Black Spray Paint. 

No question this is a beautiful buffet.  With great carvings and detail work.  And it has it's flaws; although quite minor and cosmetic.

I really wanted to embrace the British Colonial era, and I knew I wanted to focus more on the finish of the body, rather than the center image transfer. 

I think, on this piece, the image transfer is secondary.  And because of that, I choose to mute the image.

My aim when working on a piece of furniture is never to make it look '...

General Finishes Queenstown Gray and Antique White milk paints were used to create this Chalky effect on this pretty chest of drawers.  I wet blended the colors during application and then added a little DIY Paint Kissing booth for a pop of color.  The top was painted in Antique White and glazed with a custom gray glaze.  The body of the dresser was sealed with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat in Satin.  Then the beautiful IOD Transfer was applied.  I sealed again with the HP Satin...

Where to begin.... viewing the before/after you can barely see this is the same space! The selection of GF Antique White and Driftwood Gray is the perfect combination for a bright, modern farmhouse design. Add in the gorgeous red island and this space looks as if it is straight out of a magazine!! 

Wowza was this a big one!  This is a beautiful kitchen, but the cabinets needed an update and bring some light!  Using General Finishes Anitque White Milk Paint we transformed this kitchen to be enjoyed for many year!

"Just finished this beautiful custom dresser for a client. We used Antique white by General Finishes and satin HPTC." - J&L Vintage Decor

This kitchen underwent an amazing transformation using General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint. The cabinets were sanded and cleaned and prepped to a super smooth finish. Then, starting with hand rolling and brushing the base cabinets and spraying on the paint for the doors and drawer fronts in GF Antique White Milk Paint. Next, topcoating with GF High Performance Topcoat in Satin. After came the depth and detail that was brought out, using the General Finishes Pitch Black glaze. This...

An elegant twist on the homey feel of farmhouse design! This subtle two-toned look was achieved by using GF Antique White on the upper cabinets and GF Seagull Gray on the lower cabinets finished off with GF Driftwood on the island!

This noble lady displays her loyalty to King and Country, adorned in shades of General Finishes Holiday Red, Antigue White and Klein Blue Milk Paints.

This showstopper was custom made using the headboard, footboard & siderails from an Antique bed.

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...

"This turned into quite the project! Our client took all of these pieces off of an old wardrobe and had them painted to be used as wall art and an artificial fireplace! What a great idea. They turned out absolutely gorgeous! These were done with a mix of Limestone, Seagull Gray, and Antique White Milk Paints by General Finishes, and glazed in Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects, Slate Gray, and Patina Green." - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration

"I say it all the time... What a difference paint can make! And... ok some awesome new hardware too! I love how much brighter the whole room feels and the tower is now the main focal point that it should be. I used General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and Varathane Polyurethane in Crystal Clear Satin for the top coat. I sprayed the doors with my HomeRight sprayer for a flawless finish." - Superb Curb Refurb

"Campaign style always creates a statement piece, but when refinished with paint they really scream! Went with Antique White by General Finishes and a satin top coat. The gold hardware pops next to the cream, don’t ya think?" - The Charming Home    

"This rustic farmhouse style desk was delivered just ahead of today’s impending snow/sleet/rain situation. It’s General Finishes Antique White with sanded and oiled legs and a pretty Rifle Paper Co. lined drawer." 

This simple chest of drawers was transformed into a chest of drawers any fan of superheros would LOVE to have! First, the image and the knobs were purchased and then we waited patiently for the right piece to come in. This Mid Century Modern piece was it. Perfect simple lines and the legs were the perfect KA-POW to give this piece the perfect amount of character! Transformed into a Captain America masterpiece! WOW!

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...

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.

 

How could you cover up that beautiful wood grain?  Their were some pieces of trim that were missing from the doors.  So, after careful reconstruction the doors and frame received two coats of General Finishes Milk Paint in Driftwood followed by Van Dyke Brown Glaze and High Performance Top Coat in Satin.  The wood grain drawer fronts and top surface were sanded down and stained with General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain followed by GF Arm-R- Seal.

When I first saw Grandma's cedar chest I just knew I could breath new life into it. The poor thing was at an estate sale in the garage, full of musty blankets and the rear left leg was broken. I loved the faux  drawers on the front and was surprised to find an actual separate drawer on the bottom. After repairs were made and thoroughly cleaned inside & out, I used my Fuji Semi Pro 2 sprayer to lay a rich General Finishes Lamp Black basecoat. I love texture and depth so I felt a...

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. 

Wow!  Vintage transformed into modern!

"Look at all that blue yumminess! This big dresser was beautiful knotty pine to begin with but I thought it could use a little facelift. It’s been painted with a custom blue using General Finishes Snow White, Antique White, Coastal Blue and Federal Blue. Federal Blue is a discontinued color, that I absolutely love, but I happened to find some several months ago and have been squirreling it away. Silly right? I decided it was time to break it open! The wash is Antique White and I custom mixed...

"I get a little bit attached to every single piece I refinish. Sometimes that attachment runs deep, like this bench. I built this bench and then stained the seat in General Finishes Brown Mahogany Gel Stain and painted the rest Antique White. When it was complete I put it in my foyer just to see how it would look and I realized it will not be going anywhere! I can’t keep them all, but this one is staying in my home." - Flipping Unbelievable

"The bathroom remodel is complete! It went from basic builder grade to eye catching. Vanity painted in Driftwood by General Finishes and milk glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware. The trim painted in GF Antique White with my favorite Zibra paintbrush. The large frameless mirror was replaced with a thrift store find also painted in Driftwood.
