"This paint is so versatile. General Finishes Milk Paint is my go to for a beautiful smooth clean finish. Now it’s my go to for blended, faded and weathered finishes too.

The base coat is a blended mix of GF Driftwood, Linen, Halcyon Blue and yellow. When painting the Cotton Stems I added SaltWash to my paint to create some texture. I glazed the entire piece with GF...

"I'm in love with this rare IMMACULATE vintage Lane cedar chest! The cedar smells amazing and this special chest is actually fully solid cedar (no veneers.)

This set of nightstands were made from a antique 1930-1940’s vanity. It was almost completely taken apart, cut up by my husband and put back together by me. The set are not identical as some details had been lost over the years. With this set you are truly getting one of a kind nightstands or end tables.

The set was completely striped. Painted gold, then painted black wet distressed, dry distressed, painted gold again and sealed. The tops were stained General Finishes antique walnut...

This simple chest of drawers was transformed into a chest of drawers any fan of superheros would LOVE to have! First, the image and the knobs were purchased and then we waited patiently for the right piece to come in. This Mid Century Modern piece was it. Perfect simple lines and the legs were the perfect KA-POW to give this piece the perfect amount of character! Transformed into a Captain America masterpiece! WOW!

One of my favourite places for second hand hunting is the Old Fire Station. It's run by two hilarious guys, full of fabulous stories about their house clearance adventures. The whole place is filled with gorgeous goodies, mostly older antiques that wouldn't look out of place in a country manor house, but they often have little bits and bobs and I reckon they enjoy me and my mum popping in. We generally buy all the old tat - garden rakes, old posters, broken chairs. More often than not they...

I was drawn to this dresser because of the combination of drawers and doors. It was covered in layers of sloppily applied paint and I originally just planned to refresh the paint. However, as I was prepping and lightly sanding, I noticed these vertical lines on the drawer fronts coming through the paint. After sanding the drawers more heavily, the wood panels were revealed and my vision began to take shape. I started with a couple of fresh coats of Persian Blue Milk paint. I followed that...

My client was unsure of how she wanted it refinished, but knew blue would be the perfect color and loves how it turned out!" - Flipping Unbelievable
