"This antique sewing machine is ready for a new life! The machine was removed so it is now a hall table with functioning drawers for storage. I did a textured finish using Saltwash and Emerald Milk Paint from General Finishes. I used Re·design with Prima clear cling stamp Chateau de Saverne to add some cute detail to the drawer fronts!" - Dressers and Jujubes
Little Hickory bowl, embellished by worm trails, a bit of texturing, and acrylic paints, most notably General Finishes Emerald Milk Paint.
Isn’t wood amazing and unique? This bowl came from the section of the log right next to the previous little Hickory bowl I posted. But the wood was totally different! It was full of worm holes, whereas the other bowl was fairly solid.
Instead of trashing this wormy wood, I saw an opportunity to highlight the natural...
This is a custom mix of 3 parts Klein Blue and 1 part Emerald from General Finishes. From one angle it’s more blue and another more green. A very beautiful chameleon color. I used a satin topcoat for a lovely sheen and went back and did flat on the woven rattan on the drawers and doors for dimension. The hardware is original to the piece, cleaned and shined to a beautiful brass.

A little Emerald and Lamp Black
**About a 50/50 mix
"Coined in the 1940s, English Country House design is popular as ever as this new century progresses.
It's simple and casual style carries an elegance that one can actually feel at home in and it doesn't take itself too seriously. A mix of antique and vintage furnishings, patterned textiles, rugs, table lamps, flowers, a pinch of modern accessories and the classic hunting artwork - the more the better really. It embraces wear and tear, and it's the furthest thing from minimalism...
This gorgeous hutch took some time but I am soo happy with the finished piece. Refinished in layers of Westminister Green, Gulf Stream Blue, Patina Green, Emerald and Snow White by General Finishes. My customer picked out this heavy studded gold glitter paper for the back. Original hardware in gold.

2 parts Emerald + 1 part Lamp Black
Have I told you how much I love chartreuse??
This old girl needed a refresh! She was solid structurally but looked tired. Once I got the old finish off the top, I knew that I wanted to keep it wood. And I loved the wood details on the top drawer so that just had to be wood as well. I tried taping off the details fifty ways to Sunday to protect them from the paint but I just ended up with a lot of wasted tape. I remembered when I first started this business, people were using Vaseline as a...
"This solid oak White Clad Furniture Co. cabinet has been updated for the Masters! It is a one of a kind wine and liquor bar! It has been painted a deep green (General Finishes Emerald + Dark Chocolate Milk Paint)r eminiscent of the grass on the course. Gold leaf damask stenciling has been added to the inside of the cabinet doors and matches the original gold hardware. The top has a light wash of GF Snow White, letting the wood grain peek through." - Radiant Light Restorations in Augusta,...
"Design for the present, with an awareness of the past.
The previous generations of craftsmen had timeless taste. Color and finish trends come and go, but some designs stand the test of time. This Hepplewhite dresser is one of them. Circa 1940 this piece was modeled after the original designs of English cabinet maker George Hepplewhite from the 18th century. It has an elegant serpentine front along with the lesser found serpentine sides on the top. True to it's English roots, we chose...

50/50 Emerald and Dark Chocolate. HPTC Flat. Sprayed with Earlex 5500
I have been waiting for just the right piece to do a deep emerald green on and once I got this sideboard home, I knew this was the piece!!
When I found this mahogany beauty, the top was in horrible shape and there was no key to unlock the door. The owner said it had been years since they had the key but I knew we could remove the back and figure it out from there and I hoped for a treasure inside. Once we removed the back and got everything opened, all that was in there was a penny and a...
Loving this one of a kind Emerald & Lamp Black vanity. Custom mix of 2 parts Emerald + 1 part Lamp Black for the green and Lamp Black for the shading & pure Emerald for the highlight. Check out GF's wide range of tutorial videos at http://bit.ly/GeneralFinishesYouTube
"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...

I used Persimmon, Coral Crush, Royal Purple, Klein Blue, Sunglow, Emerald, Patina Green and Holiday Red milk paints along with a few other acrylic colors on this painting. The coverage is nice, blending is easy, and I love seeing all the bright colors together.
"This buffet is just so fun! The top had some pretty severe veneer damage from water so we did some patching and puttying and sanded the whole piece down.

The top decorative piece and top drawer were stained in GF Antique Walnut and Java Gel Stains and sealed in Arm-R-Seal." - Upcycling by Amy

The wood was refinished and stained using Minwax Dark Walnut.
"This piece is GREEN with envy! This cabinet was my Granny and Gramps from my dad's side of the family aka my OWN family heirloom. It was in ROUGH shape from years of use. Missing veneer pieces, piece of the ornate feet had fallen off over the years and the top had multiple water rings. Lastly, the cabinet door was cracked and would no longer hold the screws in the hinges. It may have been in a sad state but it was DEFINITELY worth saving.
I gave it a VERY good sanding and cleaning. Then I...
