"This gorgeous 1970s hutch has been owned by Janis, who has been wanting to get it refinished for some time now. She picked everything out, even the ratio for mixing General Finishes Halcyon Blue and Lamb Black to create this perfect shade of blue for her custom modern farmhouse. She didn't need anything extra to show her off before she went to her home this afternoon. Janis picked out beautiful wallpaper for the back, new ceramic knobs and requested light distressing to highlight the design...

"When my client tells me to “get rid of the orange” that’s exactly what I do. Lamp Black by General Finishes gives this bed frame an update! I also have to give credit to my Fuji Spray HVLP spray gun as these slats would have been a nightmare to hand paint and not to mention the smooth finish spraying provides." - Flipping Unbelievable

We mixed Queenstown, Lamp Black and Emerald for this custom smoky green.

"April had been a month of 13 pieces of furniture, all black. But I’m totally fine with that because I love a good matte black piece with this perfect finish from General Finishes . This pop of red has all the Selena vibes! My dear friend Tatiana waited a month for this paper to arrive and I’m so glad she did. This dresser is part of a set that will go in her new home she just purchased! Thank you friend for letting me be a part of your new journey    Paint: General Finishes Lamp Black...
"Ok I am OVER THE MOON with this makeover!! The back was completely warped and broken and every joint was loose. I took the time to re-glue and clamp every single joint on this desk and cut a new, maple back for it. After taking care of the structural issues, I sanded it down and painted it in General Finishes Lamp Black and after removing the veneer, stained the front piece in GF Whitewash water based wood stain. I top coated the entire piece and added dainty new knobs even adding one on the...

"Believe it or not, these black beauties used to be a vanity!! After carefully separating them, I patched any of the nail holes from the center drawer piece, sanded them and painted them in General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint. After a good distressing I sealed them in GF High Performance Top Coat for protection. Lastly, I sanded down the original handles and sealed the natural wood tone of those. It was so gorgeous it didn't need stain!" - Upcycling by Amy

"There is so much packed into these photos for me!! Many of these props hold so much meaning. The guitar was my father's who passed away several years ago, the accordion was my Grandmother's, the ukulele is my husband's and the painting is also one of his originals, a Beautiful Flamenco Dancer. And finally the sheet music is some of my favorite piano pieces by Beethoven. So now for the dresser!!! This unique vintage dresser was refinished in General Finishes Lamp Black, distressed and black...

"General Finishes in for the win! Lamp Black Milk Paint, Seal-A-Cell and Arm-A-Seal turned this project back to its former glory. The pulls are original solid brass. How cool is that!? Added legs to make it a little more modern and lighter and removed the dated glass. Overall very happy with the outcome. Thanks GF!" - Dianne Hunter

Definitely a one of a kind piece" - Vintage Actually Decor

"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    
"I sanded, painted, sanded and sealed this beautiful vintage Drexel sideboard. I was originally only planning to do a light distressing, but I got a wild hair and decided to go a little (okay, a lot) heavier on the distressing. Not a look I normally do and I know it’s not for everyone, but I wanted to do something a little different. What do you think? Paint Color: General Finishes Lamp Black, sealed with GF Satin Finishing Wax." - Little House Of Four

Beautiful modern farmhouse dresser in General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint.    
"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...

"This piece received a complete makeover! I’ve been looking for another one ever since my last one sold so I was pretty excited when this one popped up on marketplace! It was very ugly but I knew that wasn’t anything that couldn’t be fixed.... First I removed the weights and pendulum then removed the ugly clock face and replaced it with a new battery operated one! I wanted it to look like a very old antique clock so I added a beautiful new crown to the top to add more character and height!...

It’s been fully restored with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint and the legs are stained in Java Gel Stain." - Designs by Willow Farms

"Took a couple additional challenging steps to recreate this piece but I’m so glad I had the chance to do it. Unfortunately the veneer on the top and both sides was in very poor condition and needed to be removed. Luckily I was able to save the bottom portion of the waterfall design and literally cut it horizontally so I could remove to top portion and then apply a border appliqué. The top and sides were then painted in General Finishes Lamp Black along with the borders of the whole vanity....
