"Adorable antique chest sanded to raw wood, refinished in a soft antique white and paired with bleached drawers that got a soft weathered stain. New champagne/crystal like handles give this beauty the perfect farmhouse glam. This gal is definitely old and has all her tweaks and character but doesn't stop her from being a show stopper." - Heavenly Chic Refinishing   Products: General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain and Enduro White Poly

"I am personally very familiar with the orange ok look that was so popular in the 90s. It’s a very durable wood though, and can last forever so changing it up is a good option! This desk was stripped and stained in General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain. New hardware also made this piece look more modern. Doesn’t it look like one of the desks you would find at Restoration Hardware now?" - Flipping Unbelievable

"This buffet was quite the undertaking but so worth the effort!! After stripping it down, sanding and scrubbing I painted it in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and lightly distressed the edges. I wanted to do something special with the top and legs so I mixed a custom stain of General Finishes Whitewash, Tobacco and Graystone Water Based Stains.

"My client brought this to me in rough shape, but it had once belonged to her mother and she wanted to save it. Her sister had started stripping it but never fully finished so there was a lot of paint and stripper residue that I had to remove. After it was cleaned and bare wood I stained it in what I’m calling my signature stain (a mix of Antique Oak and Graystone Water Based Stain) by General Finishes and then added new hardware. My client was shocked at the transformation and said her sister...

"This buffet is OLD...but is no longer showing it’s age. I love that it doesn’t look like an old dated, dingy piece of furniture but it doesn’t look brand new either, if that makes sense?   This piece was in rough shape when it came to me, broken drawers, missing pieces, missing hardware, peeling veneer. I fixed all the damaged areas then stripped and stained using General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain. It has a whole new look on life now!"

"This antique table/writing desk was in bad shape when it first came to me. It was sporting a rather orange pine patina and an uneven top.

To compliment the gorgeous gray stain, the base was painted in Driftwood Milk Paint."

"This table threw us a few curve balls but it turned out even better then originally planned! The table top and chair seats were first painted in General Finishes Seagull Gray and then I applied Graystone water based stain. I wiped the stain off and feathered it back on in some areas until I achieved this soft driftwood look. The legs of the table and chairs were painted in Empire gray, a beautiful gray that compliments the top perfectly!" 

"Talk about a before and after! I bought this antique buffet months ago and was waiting for the perfect time to refinish it.

"This large wood end table has been stained in one of General Finishes new water based stain colors, Graystone. It’s a beautiful soft gray that allowed for the brown in this grain to show through as well. The bottom was painted in a lightly distressed Alabaster (New GF Milk Paint color!) which really lets the top of this table standout!" - Nap Time Creations
