"This piece definitely needed to be brightened up. The dark stain just made this piece so sad and drab.The top of the dresser and all the drawer faces were sanded down and that beautiful light pine started to shine. I didn’t want too much yellow so I clear coated all the sanded surfaces with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat. My hubby reminded me that it’s been awhile since I used that beautiful GF Tuscan Red so that made my decision. The exterior was hand painted and then accented with...
"Haven’t used a lot of red, but I sure love this Tuscan Red! Used Java Gel Stain on the top and High Performance water based topcoat in satin. Along with the mud cloth stencil, this turns this boring old cabinet into a boho focal point!" - Jess's Mess Designs
"Adorable primitive antique farmhouse cabinet/dresser painted in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed, aged and finished. This piece is full of farmhouse charm with a transfer by Re·design with Prima added. This antique piece would add character to any home as a buffet, coffee bar, entryway cabinet or dresser." - Rosie's Rustics
"This rustic old world piece was refinished in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed and waxed. The top was refinished in General Finishes water-based Provincial stain. The hardware was accented with an antique bronze. Took a little risk with a red piece but could be a beautiful accent piece in an entryway or maybe even a coffee bar!☕ So many things to imagine and just felt inspired to put a little pop of color out there during the Christmas holiday!!!" - Estrella Design
"Here we go again with a fabulous color and I have to thank General Finishes for creating Tuscan Red...I'm using my supply up pretty quickly and I think it’s time to place another order!❤️ The buffet top and doors were first sanded down. I did the same to the single door cabinet panels and the drawer face. I then created a custom grain stain with General Finishes Java Gel Stain and Arm-R-Seal. The remainder of the pieces were painted in the Tuscan Red. I updated the pulls with wood pumpkin...
"Adorable cabinet painted in General Finishes Tuscan Red, distressed and finished. Sanded and stained top for a two tone look. Original glass with two removable shelves inside doors. New glass knobs added for easy opening. Original key that works on middle cabinet compartment."
"I found myself choosing General Finishes Tuscan Red again...such a beautiful color which is rich, deep and amazing. Originally my plan had been to keep the veneer intact on this Vintage Art Deco Nightstand but unfortunately the repair wasn’t working. I was able to save the door's beautiful veneer so I first sanded it then added the stencil above and below to create a division between the two wood grains. The exterior was painted in the Tuscan Red and I added black wax to deepen the color....
"I sanded down the top and the drawer face. I’m pretty sure this is constructed of pine so I decided to burn a bit of the grain. I left the tiles intact with their original brown color because I think it went nicely with the colors in the knob and the red. The remainder was painted in General Finishes Tuscan Red. I also added a dark wax to give it an aged look. The drawer was lined with Waverly fabric and a new pumpkin knob was added to tie together all the colors."

"Loved working on this gorgeous dresser! Sprayed in General Finishes Tuscan Red with my Fuji sprayer." - Ginger Lane
Our return client lives in a modern rustic house on 5 acres. She has a keen eye for art and asked us to be creative. This was a painters dream! We found an inspiration piece and went to work. We hand painted GF Antique White using a crosshatch method. GF Brick Red and Somerset Gold were painted in meandering stripes. A wash of Antique White was used over the red. The hardware was sprayed in Rustoleum Black Spray Paint.
The look of this dresser makes my heart beat faster. Age-old, made of solid wood with elements of oak veneer. One of its kind, aged by multi-layered application of a whole range of mixed colors on the furniture, which gently penetrate each other creating an impression of being damaged by time. The inspiration for it was impressionist paintings trying to capture the fleeting moment and the sensual play of colors.

"We used General Finishes, Tuscan Red Milk Paint to make a fabulous color wash. I really wanted to see the wood grain and GF Milk Paint is amazing for a great color wash.

"This gorgeous classic chest of drawers / 6 drawer dresser has a chic and modern update with General Finishes Tuscan Red Milk Paint!

"Layers is what it's all about with this dresser, tearing away at half dried paint with duct tape and sanding to reveal the colours underneath. Using a patterned roller to detail the inside of the drawers. Patina Green is the most amazing colour and can look completely different in varying lighting states. Sometimes it's hard to see pieces go to their new home and this one was definitely one of those!"
