"We used General Finishes Linen, Driftwood and Antique White layered with dry brushing and a salt wash finish. I had inspiration from a combination of French cottage and primitive styles. It's so simple but I love it!" - Saved By Design
"I love the fresh clean lines on this piece with the exposed wood. I originally had the dark line lighter like the top drawer but I thought it would add some interest to darken it. Plus I am practical and if this were to be used in a bedroom I like the idea of it matching a dresser that’s either light or dark. Matchy but not too matchy, you know? This piece was painted in General Finishes Antique White and finished with wax." - Bayberry Moon
"What a precious farmhouse chic shiplap antique wash stand! Such a cute and charming multi purpose piece! Great patina inside cabinet and love those slatted sides. Custom shiplap pine planked top added for that perfect farmhouse charm, stained in Early American with matte poly. Hand painted in GF Antique White Milk Paint, chipped distressing and clear satin waxed. Cutest bronze cup pulls finish the look."

"I refinished this cabinet for Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity ReStore for their Repurpose for a Reason event. This will be auctioned off for one of their biggest fundraisers of the year. I have donated for the past few years now. I stripped the drawer fronts, then tapped off a design and sprayed with General Finishes Antique White. A new top was added and left natural and new knobs from Hobby Lobby complete the look."
"This vintage farmhouse style maple hutch is STUNNING! The top was sanded and stained a beautiful light brown and protected to show the gorgeous maple wood. The body was painted in a gorgeous Antique White from General Finishes. The back of the hutch top was sanded and stained as well to contrast the antique white. Vintage farmhouse images decoupaged on the inside doors. This piece would be stunning in any room!"
"It's always amazing what a little time and paint can do! Updated using #GeneralFinishes Milk Paint in Antique White and Gel Stain in Antique Walnut."
"Finished painting the outdoor playhouse for my neighbor. The sides were painted in General Finishes Blue Moon, trim in Antique White, and the door in Queenstown Gray. The milk paint is exterior rated, but I also top coated with Exterior 450. My neighbor built the playhouse and I helped paint it all. I love how this project turned out. It’s not a service that I offer, but since my kids will be using this I agreed to help. The kids are lucky to have such a fun place to play, and they all had a...
"I decided to do something different with this piece. I painted a couple snow capped mountains, and then painted the top in General Finishes Empire Gray. The other colors are a mix of Antique White, Empire Gray, and Lamp Black. How cool would this piece be for a nursery, as a toy box, or a cool little dresser?"
"This vintage mid century modern desk is the perfect mix between wood and white! This piece was sanded and topcoated to let the gorgeous walnut show. Accented in Antique White from General Finishes on the drawer fronts and geometric design on the top. Beautiful original brass pulls."

"This vintage Stanley 6 foot coffee table and end table set were completely made over from top to bottom. I stripped the old finish off of the tops and stained with Minwax Rustic Mahogany gel stain. Gel stain is a great alternative to my normal oil based stain when trying to match three table tops that want to stain completely different colors. It’s thicker and can be manipulated to get a closer match. The bases were painted in a custom mix of General Finishes Antique White with a tiny amount...

"Feeling inspired by late summer sunshine and sunflowers, this petite buffet is painted in a custom mix of Sunglow, Somerset Gold, Buttermilk Yellow Milk Paints, a few dashes of Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effecs and some dollops of Antique White Milk Paint. Glazed the paint with a little Pitch Black Glaze Effects and sealed with Clear Enduro Poly in Satin." - Gravity Hill Home
"Oh my gosh, I am so excited this piece is finally done!! It needed a lot of work, but it's such a gorgeous and quality piece that it was worth it. Mahogany may be a real pain to work with, but the quality is amazing. The top was sanded down and brought back to life, the base needed lots of patching, sanding and I had to create a piece of missing trim. I patched and drilled new holes for the updated hardware, removed the green felt from the two small drawers and added fun paper instead. All in...
"The Lauren. A secretary with the IT factor! Softly and sweetly brought back to a beautiful life in General Finishes Antique White, with a warm aging glaze and High Performance Flat Finish. Insides had the old lacquer stripped down to bare wood and sealed in my favorite Arm-R-Seal. She took a good amount of time to rebuild those spindled legs, but I definitely think she was worth the wait!
Salvaged as much original hardware as she came with, and improvised on the rest!"
"This piece was made between 1871 and 1900 because of the beautiful Knapp Joints on the drawers (those cute little scalloped joints in the second pic.) Knapp joints were only used for this short period of time in history. So that would make it between 120-149 years old! How cool is that?!
It is made from all solid Walnut with the exception of the burl veneer on the drawers and door front. I just couldn’t paint this beauty! It was missing it’s top so I made a new wood plank top painted...
"My client picked this dresser from my Unfinished Inventory to customize for her daughter. I love that she chose Antique White by General Finishes for the body and Brown Mahogany for the top. Even though it meant more work for me, I suggested stripping the front legs and staining them as well, I love the look and was glad she agreed!"
"Love this custom color of half General Finishes Harvest Yellow and Antique White Milk Paint on this commission antique vanity. Top refinished in Antique Walnut Gel Stain and then a coat of Java to get just the right color. All sealed with GF Flat Out Flat to keep that antique look.
This was my customer, Julie’s design with the little antique white detailed accents. Turned out so sweet ...but the yellow is a little washed out in daylight photos...so much richer in person."
Beautiful makeover in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint
"This dresser was very basic to start off with. I love the idea of just a classic white dresser with a little surprise so I sanded it down, primed it and painted it in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint. To get the wow factor I added pops of the Fern Wood transfer to the sides of the dresser. Lastly finished it off with some mercury glass knobs and TA-DA you have a whole new piece ✨!!"

"Most of you know my tastes tend to lean more modern with straight lines. However, I have so much respect for curvy furniture because I know how hard it is to make. These curvy gals are stunning Drexel pieces from the 1960s. They are in phenomenal shape, so well made and with their modern update I hope they will be loved for a long time. Hope you're having a great day. ❤️" - Boxwood & Brass

"This adorable secretary was picked from my inventory to be renewed and I am so glad my client picked one of my favorite colors!
I started by staining the bottom a few shades darker using General Finishes Java Gel Stain while the top was painted with Persian Blue on the outside and Antique White on the inside. New catalog pulls and drawer liners that depict french address labels are the prefect final touches on this transformation!"
