"The Stella Set. Simple and classy was the goal with these babes. They already had enough style in the body to add some glam but we wanted to make them a bit more versatile. So we went with General Finishes Coastal Blue on the french style bases, with a satin finish topcoat.
Laminate tops were sanded down and did our OWN hand applied marbling technique. Each one is one-of-a-kind and different! A blend of four different General Finishes products: Seagull Gray, Empire Gray, Perfect Gray and...

"Another vintage secretary desk in the books! These pieces of furniture are one of my favorite styles, but also one of the most challenging and time consuming. You may see only one piece here, but we took it apart into 18 pieces and treated each as it’s own. By doing this, we ensure the finish it even and uniform throughout and are able to identify and fix every repair it needs.
This one was painted using General Finishes Coastal Blue Poly & Seagull Gray Milk Paint, and then sealed in GF...

"It’s no secret that navy & gold is one of my favorite combos, so you know I was excited when my customer chose those colors for her heirloom china cabinet. This special piece has been in her husband's family and they love it, but the dated orange finish didn’t complement their beautifully decorated home. One thing that was important to my customer, is that we showed off some of the wood and stain it in a less orange, more brown finish. We decided to paint the body, and then refinish the...
"Full reveal time for this handsome, blue devil! Every drawer had veneer damage and loose veneer so I decided to remove it all with a paint scraper, moisture and heat. I only stabbed my wrist once and it was enough for a tetanus vaccine. After a good sanding and patching some holes I painted the dresser in a custom mix of General Finishes Costal Blue and Blue Moon and the legs are stained in GF Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The whole piece is sealed and new hardware has been added!" - Upcycling by...

"If I had to pick one piece of furniture that everyone could use in their home but probably don’t realize...it would be a cedar chest. It’s the perfect piece for toy storage, coffee table, bench seating, at the end of a bed, and of course for storing clothes and blankets. This cedar chest has been around for almost 60 years...and I had the privilege of meeting the original owner. It has since been passed down in the family and with the new updated look it will be used for many more years....

To solve that, I painted it with Coastal Blue Milk Paint by General Finishes and glazed it with Pitch Black Glaze Effects. After adding some oil rubbed bronze cup pulls, it had a new lease on life!"
