"The before and after on this one is exactly what our client said, Wow! We used General Finishes Linen Milk paint and Winter White Glaze to brighten up this custom piece " - Painted Pieces    
"This piece turned out beautifully in General Finishes Coastal Blue! When in doubt-navy! Finished with Winter White glaze/white wash. Top sanded and stained in Antique Walnut. Original hardware done in a matte nickel." - Kimberly Designed    
"I just fell in love with this cabinet as a soon as I saw it. It’s a petite charmer perfect as a nightstand or in an entryway. Perhaps in a bath for added storage and organizing? Painted in a mix of General Finishes Persian Blue and Westminster Green and then aged with Van Dyke Glaze. Do not be afraid to mix your own colors my friends! If you’re hesitant, trying mixing just drops of colors on a scrap piece of wood or paper before you mix up a larger quantity." - Gravity Hill Home    
"This large chest dresser has been totally transformed from yellowing white to this beautiful driftwood finish! Layers of General Finishes paints and glazes in Seagull Gray, Driftwood and brown glaze are what I use to achieve this look. New soft iron hardware from D. Lawless Hardware complete this transformation!" - Nap Time Furniture Creations

"It’s really not very often you come across one of these so I wanted to give it my antiqued paint technique using GF Perfect Gray with Antique White distressing then added Van Dyke Glaze Effects to give it a little more age and sealed it in satin top coat!" - NB.Restorations    
"This vintage Stanley 6 foot coffee table and end table set were completely made over from top to bottom. I stripped the old finish off of the tops and stained with Minwax Rustic Mahogany gel stain. Gel stain is a great alternative to my normal oil based stain when trying to match three table tops that want to stain completely different colors. It’s thicker and can be manipulated to get a closer match. The bases were painted in a custom mix of General Finishes Antique White with a tiny amount...
"Get the Look: Finished in General Finishes Linen over a solid mahogany base. We've taken all those details and smothered them in Van Dyke Brown Glaze to make those details surface again. Finished with a High Performance Flat finish for a subtle glow. We took that old red mahogany lacquered top and transformed it into a deep brown satiny crown to top her off!" - Restoration Reserve    
"A French Scrolling Console table with two matching benches. This set is phenomenal! Get the Look: Finished Exclusively in General Finishes Reverent Gray (which is actually a bit more of a stone color and agreeable with many other warm tones), Van Dyke Brown Glaze and a matte finish. A rustic Kona Top with our Hand applied Arm-R-Seal Finish. " - Restoration Reserve  
"Feeling inspired by late summer sunshine and sunflowers, this petite buffet is painted in a custom mix of Sunglow, Somerset Gold, Buttermilk Yellow Milk Paints, a few dashes of Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effecs and some dollops of Antique White Milk Paint. Glazed the paint with a little Pitch Black Glaze Effects and sealed with Clear Enduro Poly in Satin." - Gravity Hill Home    
"This sweet thing got to go home today! His traditional cedars on turned legs are a sultry look for sure! And the color! General Finishes Klein Blue, Pitch Black Glaze and a medium walnut top pair sweetly together to add a pop of color to this clients boudoir!"     
Circa 1960's Cole Steel METAL parts cabinet. 27 drawers had their original hardware removed and a grinding wheel used to remove its old finish and rust.

"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!"

One-of-a-kind hutch in a custom mix of General Finishes Sunglow Milk Pain and Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects.    
"This end table was painted in General Finishes Perfect Gray with Smokey Gray Glaze over it for a subtle color contrast. Glaze is always a good way to add a little bit of depth to a piece instead of having one solid color. General Finishes has a few different glaze colors to choose from, depending on the look desired."

"I couldn’t be more pleased with how this project turned out! I have always loved the antique card catalogs but they are crazy hard to find and sooo expensive so I made a new version! It took several hours to turn a this once boring dresser into a faux antique catalogue I painted it in a new General Finishes color called Reverent Gray then aged it to perfection with my chippy paint technique and added Van dyke glaze with a super smooth layer of matte top coat for extra protection!"     
"General Finishes custom mixed Seagull Gray, Empire Gray coated with Winter White Glaze. Accents & details in Alabaster with Van Dyke Glaze."         

"This may be my new favorite color! This client owned piece was refinished in a custom mix of General Finishes Key West Blue and Snow White and glazed with Winter White Glaze Effects! Another family heirloom ready for its next 100 years of enjoyment!" 

"Here she is, my friends! Completely made over from top to bottom, this gorgeous family heirloom is a hand carved Schlingmann Wertmobel cabinet that belonged to my clients parents in Germany. Even after making the trip from Germany to the U.S., this beauty was in near perfect condition and honestly, I was a tad bit intimidated to put paint on her flawless goodness. But wow! The makeover made each carving, each curve, each detail even more stunning and truly stand out.   My client chose a...
"These nightstands actually came from a vintage kneehole style desk! My friend Greg of The Furniture Fix split the desk apart and installed a reclaimed oak top on each side.   They were refinished using Brushable White Enamel tinted to Antique White by General Finishes. To age them a bit, I applied Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects. The reclaimed oak tops are stained in Antique Walnut and sealed with High Performance Satin."    Check out GF's full video library for product overview and how...

"This cabinet is a beast! I love these old pieces! It was a handmade family heirloom that we sanded down to raw wood and applied General Finishes White Gel Stain. We then sanded it back giving it a nice worn beachy look and highlighted the grooves with Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects. We also added feet making this cabinet more then 9’ tall! It turned out beautiful! The picture doesn’t do it justice!!"     
"I think this one goes down in the books for epic before/after. I ended up popping off the drawer fronts and was left with THE most fabulous old wood. I bought site unseen and almost dragged it to the curb when I brought it home :/ GF Gel Stain rub down :) ✔ THAT off the list!"  This look was achieved with General Finishes Candlelite and Java Gel Stains and Pitch Black Glaze Effects to give a deeper black tone to top and sides.    

"These have been stripped down to the natural finish and glazed using General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects." 

"Beautiful and elegant, this nine drawer dresser needs no jewelry. The wood handles are stunning and General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint surrounds the frame, accenting the gorgeous wood refinished in General Finishes Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects."     

"This client owned dresser set was refinished using General Finishes Empire Gray Milk Paint and was glazed with Burnished Pearl, Argentine Pearl, and Pitch Black Glaze Effects! It turned out amazing!" 

"I had planned to put the paint brush down for all of Christmas break but I just couldn’t! I didn’t want to distract from all the beautiful curves on this console table so I kept the paint simple and bright. The bottom was painted with General Finishes Brushable White Enamel while the top was first painted in Empire Gray, followed by a white wash and finished with a dry brushing of Van Dyke Brown Glaze. New black hardware and floral lined drawers complete this New Years revival."

These pieces were stripped to the natural finish sealed and glazed with General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects!"

"The top was sanded down, stained, and sealed. The body has been painted in General Finishes Somerset Gold and glazed in their Van Dyke then sealed to protect. New hardware has been added." 

 

*Somerset Gold has been discontinued. Use Harvest Yellow for a similar look

"When a great customer loves a piece but needs a different color, you repaint. I did cringe a little because she loves red and I don’t but I have to say it came out amazing. Stepping out of my comfort zone sure did pay off. General Finishes in Holiday Red with Van Dyke Brown Glaze."    

"As sad as I am to see Summer come to an end, it is nice sometimes to experience the seasons changing. This cabinet was my clients grandmother’s and she wanted it proudly displayed in her home but it needed updating. Painted in General Finishes Persian Blue with Van Dyke Brown glaze as an ode to its antique history and the top freshly stained in Cabernet."

Autumn Styled Buffet   "This gorgeous buffet is painted in General Finishes Driftwood with lots of layers of neutral glazes (Pitch Black, Winter White, Van Dyke Brown). This versatile piece has 3 deep drawers and 2 super roomy side cabinets with shelves! Sure to make a beautiful addition to your entry way, dining room, or even living space as a media console!"
