Winter White

"Just finished up a custom order refinishing two matching end tables! I gave them an updated look with a fresh coat of white paint, slightly distressed them and added a white wash (GF Winter White Glaze Effects) look to the tops to really enhance the beautiful wood grain. Now they have a coastal chic look. I’m thrilled with how they turned out and can't wait for my client to see them." - Madeline Jean Antiques & Restoration, LLC

"We stripped this piece down to the natural wood, sealed it, and glazed it using General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects. The details on this one are amazing." - Belle Maison    
"This dining room set is barely recognizable after its new makeover! Better yet, the bench that didn’t match before looks like it belongs as part of the set!Painted in Queenstown Gray by General Finishes and the top stripped and stained in Whitewash.Everything was sprayed with High Performance Topcoat for durability." - Flipping Unbelievable    
"The tops of these end tables left a lot to be desired. They came out easily and left an inset. I thought this was a perfect time to learn how to apply veneer. I headed to Exotic Woods Inc and they were amazing in helping me! I found a 1/4” birch board that was cut to size and a roll of cherry veneer to match the drawer. I used my t-square as guide and, leaving a little overage on each side, cut using a sharp knife. To apply the veneer to the board, I used heavy duty contact cement. I...

"A sidewalk sale find turned into a soft and inviting dresser! The top left a lot to be desired but I couldn’t pass up this gorgeous Art Deco waterfall dresser. I started by thoroughly cleaning the piece and sanding the top and drawers. That wood that I uncovered is seriously unbelievable. Using General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects, I applied one coat, left for a couple minutes and then wiped off. The whitewashed look the glaze achieves is perfection. Three coats of GF High-...
"The Stella Set. Simple and classy was the goal with these babes. They already had enough style in the body to add some glam but we wanted to make them a bit more versatile. So we went with General Finishes Coastal Blue on the french style bases, with a satin finish topcoat. Laminate tops were sanded down and did our OWN hand applied marbling technique. Each one is one-of-a-kind and different! A blend of four different General Finishes products: Seagull Gray, Empire Gray, Perfect Gray and...
"From a tired looking finish to a sleek modern beauty! As I started sanding the drawers and that beautiful wood emerged, I was a smitten kitten. After sanding the drawers and the legs, I applied one coat of General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects. I absolutely love the whitewashed/lightened wood it creates. It was then sealed with two coats of the General Finishes High Performance Topcoat. The top was repaired to the best it could be. It was a laminate finish so there were a few bumpy...
"Sanded it down to the natural finish, sealed it, and glazed it using General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects." - Belle Maison    
"This bare/lightened wood look is such a good way to highlight the wood grain of these gorgeous pieces. For this dresser, I sanded most of the dresser to bare wood using my Dewalt orbital sander. I like to do this sometimes, sand most of the piece, because then I’m not limited when I figure out the design. In this case, I ended up only leaving the top and the drawers with the wood exposed. The frame and legs were chalk painted using Annie Sloan’s Athenian Black. The paint was sealed using...
"This beautiful oak table and chair set turned out gorgeous! I love the light wood with the black chairs! The table was stripped to raw wood and white washed with General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects and the chairs were done in Lamp Black. A beautiful combination!" - Duke Interiors and Restoration    
"This piece was refinished using General Finishes Driftwood Milk Paint and glazed with GF Winter White Glaze Effects on the base and on the top. It turned out absolutely stunning! A statement piece for sure!!" - Duke Interiors and Restoration    
"Refinished in a custom mix of General Finishes paints. Let’s see, we have Halcyon Blue, Millstone, Reverent Gray, Antique White, Perfect Gray, and Alabaster. I went a little crazy mixing. The result is a very pretty teal/gray/baby blue. I added some GF Winter White Glaze Effects over it and lightly distressed to create a worn, layered look. Some fun wallpaper on the back completes the look!" - Elm Street Designs    
"Phew! This Canada Cabinets tall dresser was WORK. In total, I sanded for 2.5 hours to get through the finish and veneer on the drawers. But look at that beautiful wood underneath. The frame was painted using Annie Sloan’s Athenian Black and sealed with clear wax. The drawers had one coat of General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects applied and then wiped. This created a whitewash look and I LOVE it! Once dry, I sealed with their High Performance Topcoat. I added new gold hardware that *...

"This beautiful piece was stripped down to the original finish, sealed and glazed with General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects!" - Belle Maison

The bones of this kitchen are amazing, we just needed to add paint and glaze to make it brighter, and custom to the clients decor. The outer cabinets had Antique white and Van Dyke Brown glaze and the hutch and island had several layers of glaze. And when I say layers, it was 7 and that doesn’t include priming and sealing. Yikes, we sure did need an arm massage at the end of this one! 

"We saw the grain of this old oak dresser and just had to let its natural beauty shine through. This piece was sanded down, glazed with General Finishes Winter White Glaze Effects and sealed with Enduro Clear Poly! This gorgeous piece would be perfect for an entryway." - Belle Maison    
"This paint is so versatile. General Finishes Milk Paint is my go to for a beautiful smooth clean finish. Now it’s my go to for blended, faded and weathered finishes too. Both the Cotton Stem canvas and vanity were created with General Finishes paint and sealers and a bit of Saltwash additive. The base coat is a blended mix of GF Driftwood, Linen, Halcyon Blue and yellow. When painting the Cotton Stems I added SaltWash to my paint to create some texture. I glazed the entire piece with GF...

This vintage secretary desk was in rough shape when we rescued her.  She was brought back to life with a major cleaning, sanding, and more cleaning and more sanding. She boasts a combination finish using General Finishes Milk Paint in Persian Blue, and General Finishes Gel Stain in Gray.  She is sealed up for protection using General Finishes HPTC in Satin.  New Hardware graces her exterior drawers, and a fresh glass panel has been inlaid to her cabinet door. Interior panels and shelves have...

"This commissioned piece was updated using General Finishes Persian Blue Milk Paint, Winter White Glaze Effects, and High Performance Top Coat. The finish was both sprayed with our HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer and rolled with Sherwin-Williams Mohair Rollers for a flawlessly smooth finish! My client loved the original drawer pulls but we were missing one and luckily found some very similar ones from D. Lawless Hardware. All of the hardware was sprayed to match with our favorite Rustoleum...

Anyone ready for the beach! I know these end tables are! Beach inspired end table are ready to take home. Finished with General Finishes Persian blue then dry brushed with gray and white accent.

This Faux wood finish was created by a base coat of Seagull Gray milk paint, dry brushed on Antique Walnut Gel Stain, then a white and brown glaze! I literally made this finish up by getting out all my products out, giving them a good stare for about 30 minutes, then a little trial and error. End result was a happy client! 

Those curves just said “armour” to me, so I went with it! A fantastic faux finish to look like galvanized metal. Layers of Driftwood Gray, White Glaze Effects, and Van Dyke Brown bring this dirty, rustic metal feel to life. This end table became the center of attention in a modern farmhouse living room and completed the look with perfection!! 

Dresser/Nightstand combo painted in a custom mix of Antique White and Snow White milkpaint.  Dresser drawer fronts were stained in a grey penetrating stain, then accented with Van Dyke and Winter White glaze effects and a kiss of black wax.
