This little beauty has had quite the transformation. First our followers helped us choose the color & ultimately decided on General Finishes Milk Paint in Basil Green. We used Antique White for the highlights & the results were good, but it felt a little unfinished. A quick shadowing with General Finishes Pitch Black Glaze added some incredible dimension & was the perfect finishing touch!!" - Captiva Home Decor

This once oak dining set got a major makeover and was transformed into a chic and modern focal piece of the kitchen. Table base and chairs where done in General Finishes Antique White and the table top was refinished in several layers of metallic silver paints and pitch black glaze. All pieces where completed with multiple layers of High performance top coat.

This Classic Chic kitchen is one of our favorite makeovers to date.  Out with the dated honey color and in with the white and Pitch Black Glaze detail. The glaze sets the cabinets and island off and brings the transformation to a whole new level. Sealed for durability with flat out flat topcoat to help give the more modern finish.
