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...
General Finishes Harvest Yellow is the selected shade…it’s a rich, buttery color and it was fun to use this cheerful shade!
"And here is the gorgeous table! The final piece of a beautiful dining set my clients parents owned in Germany that she inherited and brought back to the states and will eventually go to her daughters.
The table had been previously painted so I stripped all of the old paint off to start fresh. I never just paint over old paint as I can’t guarantee my finish since I do not know the steps the previous painter took to prepare the piece for paint. After stripping, cleaning, sanding and cleaning...
"Hello yellow, it’s been a while! General Finishes Harvest Yellow is one of the best pale yellows out there… I blended in Dark Chocolate to accent all the details and distressed." - ReFabulous Finds by Christina
"Well, isn’t this a bright ray of sunshine!?! Love yellow, isn’t a color I often do. I think this would look cute with black and white accents, or teal… I pretty much like everything with teal.. Refinished in all General Finishes products! Harvest Yellow Milk Paint, High Performance Water Based Topcoat and Java Gel Stain!" - Jess's Mess Designs

"Who doesn’t love a little tea cart. What a lovely transformation she is! My client chose the colours Harvest Yellow & Snow White Milk Paint by General Finishes to compliment the beautiful Sunflower Fields transfer by Prima. GF’s Antique Walnut Gel Stain gives the top and wheels a beautiful, rich tone to the wood." - Angela’s Attic

Specially constructed, designed and donated to the Canadian Cancer Society for their Hope Blooms Daffodil Campaign in April 2021 This has been a true labour of love through countless hours of work put into the creation of this amazing bench!
With many thanks to Prima Redesign for their beautiful “We Care” transfer that gave me the inspiration. A special thank you to Windsor Plywood PG for generously donating the wood and General Finishes milk paint & HPTC, my good friends Scott &...
"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...
When I first saw this piece it was painted in a dirty yellow color but I loved the idea of it being yellow so much that I decided to paint it in a fresh coat of Harvest Yellow milk paint it is definitely a new favorite for me!
I also added a beautiful design on the drawers to add a little more character then sealed it in matte top coat for protection!
"The only good thing about painting spindles is painting them fun colors! So thankful my client wanted to be brave with these stools that will be at her island in her new kitchen. First we picked the fabric then some fun colors to coordinate.
These oak stools were painted in General Finishes Harvest Yellow, Persian Blue and Blue Moon and the three colors look beautiful together!"

"Love this custom color of half General Finishes Harvest Yellow and Antique White Milk Paint on this commission antique vanity. Top refinished in Antique Walnut Gel Stain and then a coat of Java to get just the right color. All sealed with GF Flat Out Flat to keep that antique look.
This was my customer, Julie’s design with the little antique white detailed accents. Turned out so sweet ...but the yellow is a little washed out in daylight photos...so much richer in person."
"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...

"Inspired by Fall, this was painted in General Finishes Harvest Yellow with Van Dyke Brown Glaze. The top was stripped and stained in Brown Mahogany water based stain and everything was sealed with High Performance Top Coat."
