"I rescued this piece from the curb. After hours of cleaning, stripping, and sanding, I spruced it up with General Finishes Coastal Blue Milk Paint (a favorite of mine!), Flat Out Flat Top Coat and bronze Anthropologie knobs. And so it lives on!" - Green Spruce Designs

"Two-tone is just the perfect look for mid-century lines. Paint/lacquer frames the pretty grain & offers a more user friendly surface than just stained wood." - The Resplendent Crow

This piece was completed with GF's jiving Java Gel Stain.

"This piece was finished completely with General Finishes products and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results! The dresser was painted using a custom blend of Milk Paints in Patina Green, Emerald, Coastal Blue and Corinth Blue, which created a wonderful peacock blue. The entire body was then glazed using Glaze Effects in Pitch Black. The coordinating mirror received the same paint and glaze treatment. The top of the dresser was stripped and stained using Java Gel Stain. Everything was finished off with High Performance Top Coat in Flat." - The Goodie Girl Shoppe
