"This solid wood bookshelf has been painted and then lightly sanded to create this faux barn wood look. Using General Finishes products I started with Seagull Gray, followed with a color wash of Driftwood, and finished with a dry brushing of brown glaze. Wire panel doors and new hardware complete this amazing transformation!" - Nap Time Creations

"This sweet little sideboard was a custom order and was refinished in General Finishes Lamp Black milk paint. I love the way the paint just glides on, the more I use this paint the more I fall in love with it! This little guy was in rough shape to say the least when I first picked him up but now it’s ready for a new purpose and a fresh start."    
"What do you think - because I LOVE this piece! This amazing console cabinet is definitely easy on the eyes and has SO much storage. Some maybe find this color combo simple but I think it’s one of my favorites - classic, clean, and handsome! The base and inside of the super roomy cabinets are painted in a custom gray mix of General Finishes Queenstown Gray and Driftwood Milk Paint and I stripped and re-stained the top using Java Gel stain. All sealed and protected - but of course. The hardware...

"This vintage Henry Link dresser needed some major love but right away I could see the potential. My friend had asked me to be on the lookout for a curvy dresser for her daughter and I knew this one would be perfect! I was given one directive, she wanted it light blue with no hue of green and was given free reign on the rest! I set out to create the perfect light blue using General Finishes Snow White as my base and added just a touch of Coastal Blue. The hardware on this dresser was long...

Awesome decorative design in GF Queenstown Gray Milk Paint by Finn+Bo   "The wood was in such amazing shape on this one, I really didn’t want to cover it up. Once I stripped it all, I stained it with Minwax gray to cancel a bit of the warmth. It had some holes on the drawers from added hardware that had to be filled and then covered. Otherwise this one would’ve been left unpainted. Loving all the clean lines on this one though!"    
"This solid maple dresser has been hand painted in a custom blend of General Finishes Snow White and Brick Red to create this beautiful blush pink.

Lawless Hardware" - Nap Time Creations
