Comparison of Carbon Gray and Ash Gray Gel Stain vs. Graystone and Graphite Water Based Wood Stain Vs. Driftwood Milk Paint
"I'm really pleased with how this trunk came out. Our customer picked it out of our warehouse and wanted to keep the mid-century vibe with some wood showing. She picked the new General Finishes Carbon Gray Gel Stain & GF China Blue for the base.
Gray can be tricky for older woods. The top came out nicely, but the other areas struggled to take any stain - totally normal, as they probably weren't the same cut of wood. I used a mix of Fusion Mineral Paint Ash and Clear Glaze to tone...
"Woo! She’s finally done! This desk has been a long time coming considering it’s been at least 4 months since I bought it and at least 6 weeks since I started it. She may not have landed where I had envisioned but in the end I’m happy with how she turned out.I painted this piece up in Paint Couture Paint Company Angelic and General Finishes Ash Gray Gel Stain."
"Farmhouse 3 Drawer Cedar Chest. This sweet Vintage Cavalier Cedar Chest of Drawers has been completely refinished using General Finishes new colors. The top has been stained in Ash Gray Gel Stain and the body, hand painted in Perfect Gray Milk Paint. Paired with new cast iron handles, the combination is simply irresistible."
"I’m all over the map when it comes to style. Today is MCM. My eclectic style is why General Finishes works for me. It doesn’t lock me in to a look and is so reliable. When I approached this dresser I was sure it was laminate. As I started to sand it down, gorgeous wood was revealed. I lightly applied General Finishes new color, Ash Gray Gel Stain and sealed with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat."
