"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 piece was once the bottom of a kitchen hutch. I removed the top and just refinished the base. The top was refinished using Graystone Water Based Wood Stain by General Finishes. The base was painted in their Perfect Gray Milk Paint."
"The original plan had to been to save the veneer but you know how things go...so I tore all the veneer off and found amazing wood underneath. I sanded it all down, burned it a bit and then clear coated it with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. Next the base was painted with General Finishes Perfect Gray then lightly distressed and glazed and sealed. The drawer face was sanded and sealed like the top then I added Waverly Fabric and D. Lawless Hardware Oiled Bronze Cup Pull."
"This vintage Jacobean style credenza is gorgeous! Painted in Perfect Gray Milk Paint by General Finishes. I used combination of weathered wood and walnut stains for the cabinet accent panels, drawer fronts and top. Everything was distressed and then I used a Hemp Furniture Oil and finally, Furniture Wax by Annie Sloan on the entire piece. Honestly, the cabinet panels and drawer fronts look like worn leather in person...it is absolutely gorgeous! The entire piece has a time worn, rustic,...
"It’s really not very often you come across one of these so I wanted to give it my antiqued paint technique using GF Perfect Gray with Antique White distressing then added Van Dyke Glaze Effects to give it a little more age and sealed it in satin top coat!" - NB.Restorations
"A vintage dresser makes the best gifts for children, because it’s an investment in a quality, one of kind piece of furniture that can grow with the child. This one is special to me as I refinished this for my niece, who just became a big sister and is embracing the role and new look of her bedroom as she transitions.
It’s not always that easy to convince someone that the picture of a yellow, dirty ugly looking dresser with broken hardware is going to be perfect. I’m glad my sister-in-law...
"Perfect Gray" Milk Paint and "Graystone" Water Based Wood Stain
This winning combination looks good on just about everything!"
"This sweet vanity is going home today! It turned out so great. Painted in General Finishes Persian Blue mixed with Perfect Gray and glazed in Van Dyke Brown."
"This end table was painted in General Finishes Perfect Gray with Smokey Gray Glaze over it for a subtle color contrast. Glaze is always a good way to add a little bit of depth to a piece instead of having one solid color. General Finishes has a few different glaze colors to choose from, depending on the look desired."

French Provincial dresser with a flawless sprayed finish of General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint.
"This dresser might look familiar. I had previously refinished it but was thinking of adding legs instead of its boxy base. After awhile I just couldn’t get that thought out of my head so I ended up sawing off the bottom part of the dresser and adding legs. I’m glad I did. The legs just feel right on this. It always seems a little strange to saw a perfectly good piece of furniture but sometimes it is worth it. This is a professionally sprayed finish, there are no brush strokes. The color is...
"We finished up this beautiful French table and 6 chairs. This table and chairs was refinished using General Finishes Perfect Gray Milk Paint and the detail was glazed with Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects. It looks amazing!" - Painted Paradise, by Duke Interiors and Restoration

"This lovely antique commode was in phenomenal shape and just needed to be cleaned and refreshed.

Farmhouse Nightstands is one of our highly requested furniture items to have in the shop! We have this pair currently available. They are larger than normal vintage nightstand sets so a great choice for those with the modern sized beds. Pairing General Finishes Empire Gray (on the top) with Alabaster White (on the base) is becoming my favorite farmhouse color combo.
GF's NEW Perfect Gray Milk Paint
"Talk about a before and after! I bought this antique buffet months ago and was waiting for the perfect time to refinish it. Recently, General Finishes came out with new colors for their Milk Paint and Water Based Wood Stain lines. I selected their "Perfect Gray" for the base and "Graystone" for the top." - Eight Hundred Furniture, LLC.
"Modern Farmhouse style set of nightstands. These nightstands had been "stained" (by "stained" I mean someone had just brushed one coat of dark reddish brown stain over them without any prep) so I had to sand them down and when I did, I thought the drawers looked pretty farmhouse amazing as they were sanded down! I painted the tops, base, knobs and feet in a distressed General Finishes Perfect Gray to give them a Modern Farmhouse style finish. These might just be in my top faves of...
