"My client didn’t even recognize his table at first when he saw a picture after it was refinished! Painted table bases and stained tops for tables is my favorite color combination. I painted the base in General Finishes Lamp Black and the top was stained in Whitewash Water Based Stain diluted with water for more of a subtle look. Everything was sealed with High Performance Topcoat in satin for durability." - Flipping Unbelievable        
"This buffet was quite the undertaking but so worth the effort!! After stripping it down, sanding and scrubbing I painted it in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint and lightly distressed the edges. I wanted to do something special with the top and legs so I mixed a custom stain of General Finishes Whitewash, Tobacco and Graystone Water Based Stains. Some topcoat and new knobs make this baby SHINE!!" - Upcycling by Amy    
"General Finishes Whitewash Water Based Stain for the top, and Antique White Milk Paint for the base. The chairs also got a makeover with some fresh black paint." - Moses Restorations

"This beautiful walnut dresser needed lots of love; the frame was cracked and completely separated in the back, it reeked of cigarettes, the drawers were falling in, and it was covered in layers of lead paint. I never thought I'd get around to painting!! But it was beyond worth it to save this dresser. Painted in the softest grey, the drawers, top, and legs were given a whitewash using General Finishes Whitewash Water Based Stain, and the original hardware was cleaned and painted. I love how...

"Old dresser turned Farmhouse Coffee Bar!! I love this so much! First, I sanded the top down to bare wood and used my favorite General Finishes Whitewash Water Based Stain. Then I removed the bottom 3 drawers and created one storage shelf and one large open space to store all the things. I left the top two drawers for silverware, utensils or your favorite stash of coffee and tea. Then to hide all your junk, I added a cafe rod with fabric. Keep it open or closed... it’s up to you! I also...
"Ok I am OVER THE MOON with this makeover!! The back was completely warped and broken and every joint was loose.

I top coated the entire piece and added dainty new knobs even adding one on the...

"This solid maple boho beauty made by Willet Furniture in the 50's was a diamond in the rough and I had so much fun shining her up.  She was stripped down to raw wood, bleached to lighten up the spots where the hardware and keyhole covers were, and white washed using General Finishes Water- Based Whitewash Stain. Re·Design with Prima furniture transfer in Folk II was applied, each area laid out a little different and unique than the next. And those solid antique brass drawer pulls really...
"This transformation is hard to believe when you see the before. She was covered in brown gel stain and her legs were all broken. Fast forward and now she’s pretty much a new dresser. I added new flat black metal legs. Sanded all the drawers and white washed them (General Finishes Whitewash Water Based Stain) to accentuate that grain that you never knew was there. The body was sanded and filled to make everything nice and smooth. I sprayed it with my Beachy Chic White chalky paint and...
