Milk Paint

"Haven’t used a lot of red, but I sure love this Tuscan Red! Used Java Gel Stain on the top and High Performance water based topcoat in satin. Along with the mud cloth stencil, this turns this boring old cabinet into a boho focal point!" - Jess's Mess Designs    
After a good sanding, I primed the tables and painted them in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint. Finally, they were distressed, given new drawer pulls and sealed in GF High Performance Topcoat in Flat. " - Upcycling by Amy

How adorable is this kids kitchen in GF Basil Milk Paint??!!   "Revamped the kids play kitchen for the third time because I have zero chill and little DIY projects bring me joy.✨ Guess third time’s a charm because this one may be my absolute favorite. The play kitchen currently resides in our living room so having it be aesthetically pleasing is definitely a plus. The green with pop of black and natural wood. Perfection!" - Jess Party of 4

Beautiful hutch in a 50:50 custom mix of General Finishes Driftwood and Reverent Gray 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...

"Stunning dresser/buffet/media cabinet painted in General Finishes Westminster Green, weathered and finished. Sanded and stained top for a two tone look." - Rosie's Rustics    
"These lockers were a great find and originally I was gonna clean them up to resell them but after realizing they had a perfect pole inside to hold hangers, we decided to use them instead of our plan to build a closet in this space. The outside was covered in rust when we bought it so I sanded it all off and then top coated it in a flat top coat to seal and hopefully stop further rusting. The inside I scraped off the old paint, primed and painted in General Finishes Alabaster Milk Paint and...
"The planked top was sanded down and then stained in a gorgeous custom mixed stain and the legs and bottom were painted in General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint and distressed to give it a lovely, worn patina. Entire piece was sealed with GF Satin High Performance Top Coat." - REmade    
"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!...
"These end tables were a custom order for my neighbor and her family. They were used by her parents for many many years and I feel so honored to be trusted with their little makeover! Painted in General Finishes Driftwood and stained in GF Antique Walnut and Java Gel Stains and sealed in Arm-R-Seal for year and years of protection! "     
"This cute little bench needed a refresh for the new year. We used a custom mix of General Finishes Basil, Reverent Gray and a touch of brown to achieve this lovely neutral."     

"Took this piece all the way down to raw wood on the top and added a beautiful dusty blue, a mixture of General Finishes Milk Paints in Reverent Gray, Perfect Gray and a touch of China Blue to the body and drawers of the desk. The top was topped with a rich, solid coat of gunstock stain to add a two tone look. The original hardware was cleaned and refinished with a Spanish copper finish. This piece was extra special to recreate for this client and the happiness and excitement they reacted...

"This rustic old world piece was refinished in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed and waxed. The top was refinished in General Finishes water-based Provincial stain. The hardware was accented with an antique bronze. Took a little risk with a red piece but could be a beautiful accent piece in an entryway or maybe even a coffee bar!☕ So many things to imagine and just felt inspired to put a little pop of color out there during the Christmas holiday!!!" - Estrella Design    
"General Finishes Gulf Stream Blue... where have you been all my life?! I had forgotten how smooth & amazing this color is! This is a relatively modern piece, & I held up about 11 different color swatches until I found just the right shade to compliment the rust & slate colored tiles. All drawers slide smoothly & the piece is solid. The top was stained with Fusion Mineral Paint's Cappucino Stain and Finishing Oil, then a 3:1 Cappucino and Ebony mix." - Flipping Fabulous    
"General Finishes Alabaster is the softest and most elegant white this season!" - The Broken Masterpiece

It’s also a Henredon so bonus points there! This desk is completely solid wood, dovetailed drawers and brass hardware. 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

She’s a sleek MCM style side table with a Modern-Boho vibe.

This client has a very tailored Farmhouse style..... again, the things I know about you all by walking around your beautiful homes!!....  Updated in a popular request lately, General Finishes Empire Gray.... it's a lovely warm griege that agrees so well with warm wood tones! We love it around here! Warm Pitch Black glaze in...
"I love the fresh clean lines on this piece with the exposed wood. I originally had the dark line lighter like the top drawer but I thought it would add some interest to darken it. Plus I am practical and if this were to be used in a bedroom I like the idea of it matching a dresser that’s either light or dark. Matchy but not too matchy, you know? This piece was painted in General Finishes Antique White and finished with wax." - Bayberry Moon    
"This client owned set was refinished using Alabaster by General Finishes and the pin striping was done in Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects. I’m loving the way it turned out!" - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration

Finished in General Finishes Lamp Black with an edge distress and High Performance Flat finish. The top and lower shelf has been heavily wire brushed...
"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....
