"My first deep green piece, ever! My customer asked for spruce, so I mixed General Finishes Emerald and Coastal Blue until I got the desired color. Top coated with GF High Performance Topcoat Satin for a beautiful finish.Top stained with Colonial Maple Gel Stain. " - Vintage Painted Pieces    
"Navy & Gold is one of my favorite combinations and what better Navy than Coastal Blue by General Finishes. This color was 4:1 Coastal Blue:China Blue to give it a bit brighter pop! Finished in high gloss. It has a beautiful sheen to compliment the gold leaf pulls." - The Broken Masterpiece    
"The fluting, The deep rich color, The brass hardware. This one has it all! Started pulling off all those 80’s details. Behind that bulky trim was very simplistic curved sides, but a mismatched front. That’s when I decided to have a base made that would mimic the sides and create a more cohesive look. I also was not fond of the trim detail under the top drawer; but when I removed it there was about an 1/8” gap! That’s when my wheels started turning and I immediately thought of fluting! A style...
Stunning waterfall vanity painted General Finishes Coastal Blue Milk Paint.   "Phew. To say this one was an undertaking for me is an understatement. And I, for sure, underestimated how much time it was going to take me to complete everything!   A waterfall piece was on my bucket list, but I never got around to refinishing one, so when my client (also a friend) asked if I could take it on as a custom project, I jumped at the chance. Little did I know how many repairs were going to go...

"Navy Thomasville Faux Bamboo. Knocked something off of my bucket list! I’ve always wanted to do a bamboo piece but they are so hard to find in my area!

"I never intended to do another French Provincial set, but sometimes we come across pieces that demand our attention. This is one of those pieces. The curves on this chest are so definitive and the hardware is timeless. As soon as I saw it I knew....Navy.   But the search for the perfect Navy shade was a feat. So to mixing I went. This custom shade has so much depth and it is a true chameleon. It ranges from a rich regal blue to deep teal to almost black depending on the lighting...

Vintage Bernhardt- he's studiously refinished in Coastal Blue by General Finishes with a beautiful satin topcoat.

"My client convinced me to leave the drawers stained, even though there were a lot of chips in the veneer. I’m glad she did, because I love the wood grain! I did my best to fill in any missing veneer and match to the wood tones, then stained in General Finishes Antique Oak Water Based Stain. The rest was painted Coastal Blue Milk Paint." - Flipping Unbelievable    
"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...

"The blonde oak was given a complete makeover in General Finishes Coastal Blue and the wood accents stained in Varathane American Walnut. The original hardware is almost unrecognizable, I knew all that scrubbing would pay off." - Fin + Finished    
"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...

"The Raina Dry Bar. As promised this lady has an ultimate surprise your guests will never expect! Closed up she's just a lovely example of a detailed mid-century rolling dry bar. At first glance, she'd just be a great side table... but open up those doors to another world! Metallic gold greets your guests with a Gatsby-like experience that they'll have to comment about! Finished in our newest blend of General Finishes Coastal Blue and Westminster Green... we've named it Everteal, the most...

We custom blended General Finishes Westiminster Green with Coastal Blue for a deep Evergreen Teal color that I absolutely ADORE with Pitch Black Glaze in all those awesome details! WE took down the doors and top natural, and found some really interesting grain patterns, so we just sealed those up in our favorite Arm-R-Seal satin hand applied finish!" - Restoration Reserve  ...

"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....

"Talk about a before-and-after! This rock maple server had good bones and excellent construction. The only problem it has was a dated finish and even more dated hardware. 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!"
