"This beautiful piece went home today, and I couldn’t be more excited with how it turned out. It was a family heirloom; I’m so grateful for the opportunity to give it a new look. I stripped the veneer from the top and stained it with General Finishes “Nutmeg” Gel Stain with a number of layers of High Performance Topcoat in semi gloss for a nice shine! The body was painted in a custom mix of General Finishes Milk Paint in “Driftwood” and “Lamp Black” for the perfect dark gray. The glass knobs...
The elegant curves of these quaint end tables is contrasted by the rustic look of the faux barnwood tops, creating a versatile charm perfect for any decor.
The Southern Hills coffee table features a two-tone white and weathered driftwood finish.
The top was custom made with new wood cut and attached in a herringbone pattern.
The detailed cut-out apron and elegant turned legs were painted in Antique White. The herringbone top was given a wash with diluted driftwood paint. Antique white was then dry brushed over the top, creating a refined rustic look.
This pantry door was SO FUN to paint... and it was also for my own kitchen (YAY!) so I could reallly get creative with it! It’s actually “half” of a French door set that I found at our local Habitat ReStore.... and what do you know, it was the EXACT size of our pantry door... easy swap!!!
It all started with a coat of “Costal Blue”... I was going to distress and stop there... but since I was keeping it for myself, I decided to have a little bit of fun! I started getting carried away...
This antique secretary was lovely as is, just a bit dated. With the faux barnwood finish, I was able to give it a fresh new look that perfectly complements my clients space!
"I'm a sucker for the curves of French Provincial pieces. This lady was painted for a client using a custom mix of General Finishes Milk Paint in Driftwood and Linen using a 2:1 ratio. The body was glazed with GF Pitch Black Glaze Effects for a streaky finish. The top was darkened by adding some Lamp Black to the paint mix and then streaked with the glaze. The entire piece is sealed with High Performance Topcoat for a satin finish. Last but not least the pulls were freshened up in silver...

Fantastic transformation by ReLoved by Maja Komasa! This hutch was painted in a custom mix of Coastal Blue, Persian Blue and Driftwood Milk Paint.
This Oak dresser was given this shabby chic cottage look using Seagull Gray on the base of the piece and driftwood on the drawers. After sealing the whole thing with Enduro clear poly we got the sander out and let it do the rest. I loved the way it turned out. We finished it off with one more coat of Flat out Flat and added the rope pulls to really give it the shabby farmhouse look we were going for!
