"Finished painting the outdoor playhouse for my neighbor. The sides were painted in General Finishes Blue Moon, trim in Antique White, and the door in Queenstown Gray. The milk paint is exterior rated, but I also top coated with Exterior 450. My neighbor built the playhouse and I helped paint it all. I love how this project turned out. It’s not a service that I offer, but since my kids will be using this I agreed to help. The kids are lucky to have such a fun place to play, and they all had a...
"Just finished up this fabulous Primitive Table and Chair. Perfect set for parents working from home these days including their kids schooling remotely.
Although not a match and bought separately I still think both of them paired well.
This primitive table had years of gentle use do it was sanded down and then sealed in a Polyurethane. The base was then painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray. It was my first time using this color and I love it! The shade leans towards the blue side...

"General Finishes Queenstown Gray was a great choice for this cute nightstand/end table. Knobs are sprayed gold and we finished this piece off with a bit of distressing." - Refurbished by Sweet Threepeats
"By far, this dresser is my favorite piece we have ever done, and we get to look at it everyday! When we found out we were having a boy this dresser came to mind. I knew I wanted a unique look, I wanted a mix of wood and metal and a dark blue. Soon after, this dresser came along and I claimed it as ours! We used General Finishes Arm-R-Seal to bring out the beautiful raw wood and painted the rest Queenstown Gray, then we finished it off with some new hardware to complete the look!" - Moses...
"Loving the wood tone with this dark color. Painted in Queenstown Gray by General Finishes."
"I love how this timeless beauty turned out! The serpentine top drawers combined with the curved sides gives this piece just the right amount of details! The color, size, and design of this antique dresser makes it an ideal piece for any decor. The back is also painted so this piece can go against a wall or stand on its own.
For the body I used General Finishes Queenstown Gray, it’s a very smooth, deep charcoal grey. I absolutely love it!! I then lightly distressed along the edges, and...
"This one is a keeper! My husband got this record cabinet for free from a friend. After removing the old door and speaker sections, I added two new doors from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and painted everything in General Finishes Queenstown Gray. The top was stripped and sealed to reveal a gorgeous wood grain.
This will hold my dad’s record collection which I recently inherited, so has special meaning to me. Lots of records will be played on this piece, as it was originally...
Beautiful dresser painted in General Finishes Queenstown Gray and lightly coated with black wax for added characteristics."

The top was sanded down and stained with a hickory gel stain with high gloss sealer. I cleaned up the hardware and glazed them using GF Pitch Black glaze to give them some depth. The drawers are lined in cute little pattern. She is very old but she’s still sitting pretty!"

"This sweet piece is ready to go!! Refurbished in General Finishes Queenstown Gray and distressed to have a weathered look, it's perfect as a little buffet or entryway piece."
"One of my favorite things is when a client gives me an inspiration picture for the furniture she wants me to makeover. It was fun to layer all the colors to get just the right depth and texture for this entry table. I used General Finishes paint in Perfect Gray, Queenstown Gray, Snow White, Seagull Gray, mixed a few combinations in between, and did a subtle white wash over it all. I love how it turned out!

"You won’t want to keep your distance from Cliff. He is charming, versatile and neutral. Besides using him as a dresser he would make a great changing table, entry catch-all or even a media center. His body is a custom light gray color mixed with General Finishes Empire Gray and Snow White and slight distressing. The drawers have been rebuilt, painted in GF Queenstown and now function perfectly with updated matte black hardware. The top is in stained in a layer of Minwax weathered oak followed...

Tops are heavily glazed with dark glazing and protected with a satin poly finish."
"This is one of those pieces that reminds me I really ❤️ what I do. This dresser was a gift from my clients grandfather when she was a young girl. And while it was pretty beaten up she just couldn’t stand to part with it. So she asked me if there was anything that could be done to bring this sentimental piece back to life and I was up for the challenge!
After several repairs I started by sanding down the pine top and staining it with General Finishes Java Gel Stain. The body of the...
"Who loves to decorate their mantel? Here’s mine at our home. I painted my fireplace last year using Queenstown Gray from General Finishes and stenciled the marble inset with Bead Board and Little Black Dress from DIY Paint and Royal Design Studio Stencil. And how about that fabulous star from On The Surface!"

"This beautiful and stately vanity/desk has been beautifully updated in a gorgeous gray (Queenstown Gray) from General Finishes. The top and legs were sanded and protected with Arm R Seal to show the gorgeous grain. The mirror was painted to match but also has a stunning wood ‘crown.’ New cup hardware from D. Lawless Hardware completes the look! Matching chair with a modern plaid design. This would be gorgeous in an entryway, makeup vanity, or even bathroom!"

General Finishes Queenstown Gray and Antique White milk paints were used to create this Chalky effect on this pretty chest of drawers. I wet blended the colors during application and then added a little DIY Paint Kissing booth for a pop of color. The top was painted in Antique White and glazed with a custom gray glaze. The body of the dresser was sealed with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat in Satin. Then the beautiful IOD Transfer was applied. I sealed again with the HP Satin...
This piece is definitely in my top 3 of favorite pieces I have ever done. The minute I picked up the dresser I knew I wanted to use a transfer on it. I found the new colored transfers and fell in love with the design. I painted the base in a deep gray, Queenstown Gray, painted the drawers in Seagull Gray, light enough to make the transfer pop. The transfer was the crowning glory. It looks perfect with the chosen colors. After sanding the top I felt a stain was needed to show off the...
Ahhhh.... the snow white dream kitchen! Who wouldn't love to shuffle into this beauty each morning for that perfect cup of coffee! These cabinets once boasted a stained and glazed Tuscan look, but the final stage of this kitchen transformation was painting the cabinets a beautiful pristine white. We all know how hard pure white can be to achieve that perfect look, but General Finishes milk paint in Snow White rose to the task! The island compliments in General Finishes milk paint in...
This kitchen was overload of honey oak, when starting, making it outdated and dark. It was quickly modernized into a brighter space by painting the cabinets and updating the hardware. The kitchen island was painted a different color to add some contrast.
"Check out this awesome lingerie chest we customized for our customer a couple weeks ago. Loving how it turned out and can’t wait to use this finish again!" - Twig & Thyme Design
This piece was painted with Queenstown Gray Milk Paint lightened with Snow White and then accented with Pitch Black Glaze Effects.
This was a piece for the books. She was old, moldy, dirty, barn fresh, bird poo covered, but yet still had a lot of potential. We needed a bathroom vanity for our bathroom and I knew she would be perfect! After lots of elbow grease, she was thoroughly cleaned. For some reason she had lots of drill holes all over so those were filled with putty. This dresser was sanded and prepped, we cut her legs off and cut her depth down to fit in our super tiny bathroom. Her base was painted in GF...
This antique cabinet was given a fresh new look. After stripping and priming, I painted it in a custom blend to create this lovely fresh light grey. The interiors were treated to a fresh stain using Antique oak. For the stencil I used Pearl Effects in Argentine pearl, on both sides of the cabinet, and also used Pearl Effects to highlight corners and edging. The handles were brightened using silver Run N buff. To finish off I sealed with High Performance Top Coat, and this lovely Lady was...
Once upon a time this piece probably served as a potato bin but when I caught sight of it I knew it was the perfect mail station just waiting to be transformed for my mom since it also just happened to be Mother's Day weekend. I worked quickly and finished this gem using GF Queenstown Gray, stunning appliques from D. Lawless Hardware and new crystal knobs. My mom was and still is in love with it and it has quickly become the gorgeous front door staple in her house I knew it was always meant...

Hand painted in General Finishes Queenstown Grey, lightly distressed, glazed with Winter White to accent those incredible details and sealed with High Performance Top Coat, she is ready for a whole new life!
When I first saw Grandma's cedar chest I just knew I could breath new life into it. The poor thing was at an estate sale in the garage, full of musty blankets and the rear left leg was broken. I loved the faux drawers on the front and was surprised to find an actual separate drawer on the bottom. After repairs were made and thoroughly cleaned inside & out, I used my Fuji Semi Pro 2 sprayer to lay a rich General Finishes Lamp Black basecoat. I love texture and depth so I felt a...
