"This Dixie nine drawer dresser turned out so pretty! She was kinda raggedy before with a very tired finish. No structural issues, just a ton of nicks and gouges. This gorgeous blue is a custom mix of two parts China Blue and one part Perfect Gray from General Finishes. It’s not as purple as a periwinkle, not as navy as navy and not as gray as a blue gray. It’s just a lovely blue. I was inspired to create this color by a blue in one of my drawer liners. I was so excited to use the color and...

"MCM 4 drawer dresser. All General Finishes products used on this project. Lamp Black Milk Paint on the case. Antique Brown Water Based stain on the top and drawers. Satin top coat on everything." - The Furniture Fix   J
These end tables were very dated and the orange finish was failing. If you remember from a post a few days ago, I ended up removing the entire finish down to bare wood. We also added a plain piece of trim to cover the detail work that was on the front to make them more modern and up to date. I started the refinishing with two coats of shellac to seal the wood and block the wood tannins from coming through my finish. I still wasn’t sure what direction I was going with these tables but because...

"Closet/wardrobe in maple stained with General Finishes water based Pecan. A couple goals of this was to try to match the existing bamboo hamper color and to make sure the hamper would fit inside. I made it in sections to maximize inside dimensions vs tilting one tall cabinet which would have cost about 3” in usable height." - Flannel & Sawdust
