"This beautifully layered buffet was accomplished by using only General Finishes products. I created the base coat by mixing the farmhouse green color that consists of GF Milk Paint in Basil, Dark Chocolate, Emerald, and Linen. I then dry brushed on some Buttermilk Yellow. The last coat of paint was a 50/50 mixture of the farmouse green and Antique White. I used the vaseline method of distressing to achieve the chippy look and many...

"I mixed General Finishes Coastal Blue with Emerald Green, and while I was going for a dark teal, it came out more like a Hunter Green. Which was still so pretty and really compliments the wood tones. I watered down the paint about 50/50, and brushed it on just like I was painting, but a thinner coat. Once dry, I sanded heavily with 80 or 120 grit paper. It left it looking pretty scratchy, so everything got a coat of High Performance Poly in flat finish. It gives it a really pretty shine, and...

"I recently painted an old piano using the GF Milk Paint in Emerald & GF Satin High Performance Topcoat. The end results are stunning.

Thank you for making such a wonderful family of products!" - Lesley Jarman McGilligan

I love using paper images on my furniture pieces, they can really make your piece a unique one of a kind! One of the most asked questions about using images is how to seal them for durability.. I always use General Finishes High Performance Topcoats. I usually start with a coat of HP Gloss to keep the colors and image vivid followed by multiple thin coats of HP satin for a beautiful finished sheen. On this piece I used Seagull Gray and a mix of Emerald, Snow White, and Corinth Blue on the...

Love mixing custom colors for a piece!! This buffet was refurbished using a mix of General Finishes Emerald, Coastal Blue and Klein Blue. The result was a beautiful peacock color that was on the green side of the fence. Distressing brought out the pretty golden wood tones underneath. The top was sealed using the High Performance Top Coat in Satin. - Shannon from Refurbished by Sweet Threepeats​ of St. Charles, MO.

We're absolutely smitten with this two-toned Emerald Midcentury stunner by Cassie at Primitive & Proper​! "I decided playing it safe is for sissies. And I am no sissy. I pulled out my General Finishes in Emerald and added a dash of Coastal Blue just to darken and richen it a bit... Once the paint was dry I topped it with two coats of General Finishes HP Topcoat in Satin. I am on quite a green kick lately… I can’t get enough! I love this rich color." See the full transformation here!...

Cassie at Primitive & Proper upcycled this cheerful campaign nightstand with Emerald Milk Paint and High Performance Topcoat in Satin for a light sheen! Didn't it turn out beautifully? Cassie says, "I then applied 3 coats of General Finishes Emerald Milk Paint. I want to note that I did not prime this piece. I have discovered with Emerald, it’s best to apply right on top of the wood... I haven’t used this color in a while, but every time I do, I fall in love with it a little more! It’s...

I just wanted to share this fun dresser that I painted with Emerald Green and Corinth Blue. These are such great bright colors for Boho lovers! - The Splattered Smock

The Jolly Green Giant by Modern Vintage "This used to be a cabinet, but with the doors removed it is an open shelf ready for books or baskets or anything in between. It's been painted a bold green that has been toned down a bit with the dark stained top and drawers. Dressed up with a tiny bit of fancy on the original pulls." The green is a mix of GF Basil Green and Emerald Milk Paint and the top and drawers were stained with our Java Gel Stain, aka, "The One Coat Wonder".

Tara and Mooch of Modern Vintage shared their chalkboard frame that was spruced up with GF products.
