Milk Paint

"I love when clients get a little bold when introducing colour into their furniture pieces. What a statement both of these pieces make. My client chose General Finishes Tuscan Red with a powdered glaze effect. I absolutely love it." - Paint and Hammer    
"Finally finished with this beautiful French desk. Hand painted in General Finishes Millstone. The top was sanded down and stained in Pecan and sealed for protection. New pulls added for an upscale classic look. This desk is made by Drexel, so you know it’s made to last. I love this color. Perfect fall time color" - Vintage Actually Decor    
"This mid century desk was in desperate need of some updates. Now it looks good as new. This was painted in my favorite black, General Finishes Lamp Black. The top was sanded down and stained a nice, rich walnut color to compliment the black." - Weathered & Woven    
"Another beautiful custom finish. Our client chose General Finishes Linen for the base and a custom carrara epoxy top." - Painted Pieces    

First time trying a black wash on a piece and I’m obsessed! It’s definitely one of my favorite looks. On this antique dresser, I love seeing the wood tones peek through.

"Solid Cherry, she has an amazing top we just couldn't get over- so we bleached the red tones out and were left with a fabulous neutral! No stain at all, just clear coated in our absolute favorite hand applied General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. Base has been refreshed in Persian Blue with Pitch Black and light grey glazes for detail." - Restoration Reserve

"I just love round coffee tables! This one had seen better days; the old veneer needed to be removed and replaced and I chose this beautiful mahogany piece, stained in American Walnut Liquid Oil Based Stain, to match the decor in my customer's home. Being my first time replacing an entire veneer top, I was definitely intimidated but I learned so much along the way. The base of the table was painted my favorite black, General Finishes Lamp Black, and sealed for ultra durability." - Fin +...

"The Stella Set. Simple and classy was the goal with these babes. They already had enough style in the body to add some glam but we wanted to make them a bit more versatile. So we went with General Finishes Coastal Blue on the french style bases, with a satin finish topcoat. Laminate tops were sanded down and did our OWN hand applied marbling technique. Each one is one-of-a-kind and different! A blend of four different General Finishes products: Seagull Gray, Empire Gray, Perfect Gray and...
"Think pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month. My daughter is one lucky girl to be the owner of this desk. It’s not solid wood but I still painted it in General Finishes Ballet Pink. I love the color with the gold metal." - Flipping Unbelievable    
Stair railing makeover with GF Dark Chocolate Milk Paint.    
"How cute is this little nugget I redid for a custom order? This is a family piece but had seen better days and had been stored in a basement not feeling the love. After a good sanding, the base was painted in a custom mix of General Finishes Blue Moon and Lamp Black to custom match some wall art the customer had. The top has been stained in a custom mix of General Finishes Java and Antique Walnut Gel Stain. We sealed the whole piece, added new ceramic knobs and new wheels since one of the...
"I love getting to do different colorful things! It’s so much more fun then the typical white and gray! Although I always love those when they are done too, I just love getting to use my blues and greens! We had a great time with this job! There’s still a little bit more work that needs to be done to the trim but how pretty is this fireplace?! We painted this using General Finishes Reverent Gray, Queenstown Gray, Cardamom, Basil, and Persian Blue. To add a little sparkle we glazed the whole...
"This super sized bedroom set got a complete makeover! It’s amazing how different furniture looks with just paint and new hardware. My client requested Seagull Gray by General Finishes which is one of my favorite colors to work with. It’s not too gray and not too white… it’s just right. I also ordered new flat black hardware to give a modern updated look. Everything was sprayed with my Wagner Painting Paint Sprayer. I sprayed 2 coats of BIN Primer, 3 coats of paint and 3 coats of poly...

"My first time using the is color and won’t be the last! This is General Finishes Persimmon and it’s even better in person! My client initially wanted blue but at the last minute switched to this color and I’m so glad she did." - Flipping Unbelievable    
"A modern update to a dated piece! This piece is solid cherry wood. I wasn’t a fan of the shell design in the trim so I removed the entire base and built out a new one. Added some modern feet to bring it back to a decent height. I went way over budget with the new hardware but I think it was well worth it! Body is General Finishes Alabaster, the perfect shade of white. I added a raised stencil to the top row of drawers. Top was stripped and sanded and finished in General Finishes Dye...

"Bippity, boppity, boo. This solid wood Sumpter Cabinet Co. dresser was brought back from certain death, saved from being another piece, with so much potential, thrown into the landfill. My husband doubted me on this one, and not because he didn't have faith in me but because this piece was NASTY; held together in various places with more screws than I wanted to count, the base had been ripped off, and there were deep scratches in the top as if some animal clung to it for dear life. The saddest...
"This shipped in from Southern Illinois. Circa Early 1900's. Original to the Knox County Indiana Courthouse. The base was custom welded for the addition of a steel frame to structurally prepare for its 4 industrial iron feet. After grinding all rust and imperfections, degreasing and priming, the entire piece was finished in General Finishes Lamp Black. It's gorgeous original solid brass hardware was polished and because all hardware is permanently riveted and not removable, each drawer was...

"How cool is this old desk! It was in pretty rough shape when we got it but it cleaned up beautifully! They took the main structure of the desk and added a new bottom, the side shelves, and a new top! Such a great idea and is going to look great in its new space! We refinished this piece in General Finishes Alabaster Milk Paint and Java Gel Stain. Gorgeous!!" - Duke Interiors and Restoration    
"General Finishes Empire Gray bodies and a deep stained top - but as I was sanding and stripping down, I quickly decided it might be a highly couture look if we stained the top rows too! Ended up with a high-end custom look instead of just a painted dresser. Super modern and yet completely timeless set- for years to come! Hand applied Arm-R-Seal top over a deep Kona stain on those oak fronts." - Restoration Reserve
