Lamp Black

"Curvy girls get all the attention. This beauty got the makeover it so deserved, from drab to absolutely glamorous. Painted in General Finishes Lamp Black and Antique White for the striping. Re•design with Prima®️ Midnight Floral transfer, one of my favorites, really stepped it up a notch. And that gold foil! I'll be finding pieces of it in my house forever but it was 100% worth it. I suppose, after all, diamonds are a girl's best friend " - Fin + Finished

"Modern Scandanavian Boho Eight drawer dresser. A quality vintage MCM piece has been given a custom design. Its base was built out to accept its new 6" black iron legs.

OVER 125 FEET of custom wood trim was used for this original design. Sold black iron bar pulls are the perfect simple modern accent. The black finish and bleached wood...

"SOLID OAK inside and out. This piece was pristine when I got it, like it had never been used. Heavy, sturdy, like brand new. Drawers glide with ease. The old rusty vintage casters that I’ve been holding onto for about a year were my inspiration for going with a rustic industrial vibe. Many paint colors went into this starting with a base of General Finishes Lamp Black. A very cool product called “rust in a jar” by Autentico Paint USA was used to create textured old rust looking areas...
"When you create for long enough, inevitably along will come a piece that you struggle to list for sale. Please welcome, Clevette to the collection! We found her hidden away in the basement of a home we ended up buying as a flip last year. Her top was heavily aged but her character and charm undeniably drew us in. My dad selected the best pine boards at the lumber yard and we laid her a new custom top. After several rounds of cleaning, this girl's mahogany tannins still bleed so I opted...
"Sometimes...when I’m waiting for paint to dry...I squeeze in a little project. This little cutelydute bench was a curbside find. I gave it a quick little refresh by removing the dated, flouncy fabric as well as removing the peeling veneer, which that flouncy fabric was covering. I used General Finishes Lamp Black and then I sealed it with (my favorite) Polyvine Ltd wax finish varnish in dead flat. I used some leftover, fun fabric to reupholster the seat." - REmade    

Twilight is a purple/black. Lamp black is a rich black.

I found, and fell in love with, a set of framed botanical prints on a black background, different than so many others I had seen. BUT I didn't love the price tag So I figured it couldn't be too difficult to make my own! What do you think? I painted three 10x10 canvases in...

"A Mid-1800's Empire redesigned into a kitchen cart, coffee or liquor bar or hallway storage. We removed two drawers and shiplapped inside to create a fabulous storage nook. Add some old wire baskets, or perfect for bottle storage! Inside finished in General Finishes Lamp Black for that slightly industrial feel. Outside has been fully stripped to reveal some pretty fantastic grain patterning even with a few pieces missing, and sealed in multiple coats of Arm-R-Seal Satin.... because I mean......

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

"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!!!

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. Painted it a custom mix of General Finishes Westminster Green, China Blue, Emerald Green and Lamp Black, distressed it and sealed it in Dixie Belle Paint Company clear coat. 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
