Vintage Navy Blue Dresser

By Lee, Owner at Bee's Knees Custom Designs in Anoka, MN.

Winning Category

Who says you need white or gray for a farmhouse inspired dresser? I like to think navy helps modernize the look -- especially General Finishes Coastal Blue. I lightly sanded the dresser before applying the navy blue paint. I used an antiquing wax to seal the dresser and create an even deeper and darker navy. This is definitely one of my favorite colors to use. ❤️

Queenstown Rescue

By Katie & Co. Furniture Restorations, Owner

Winning Category

When I got this piece it had the legs cut off and gold roller ball wheels on it. I Took them off, added new legs which didnt fit. So, I took the set screw out of the legs, turned them upside down and drilled the set screw in the opposite end so they would be attached upside down. It worked out great! The hardware was missing so I added plain oak knobs to give it a modern farmhouse look.

Where oh where do I begin?!?! This piece is really Ah-Mazing! It had such a beautiful and rare mix of woods.

The body of the piece was hand painted in Pure White and the cabinets where stained in General Finishes Water Based Antique Oak. This gorgeous piece has the farmhouse charm that is so undeniably irresistible.

'Put a Bird on It' French Country Dining Set

By Valeria, of Refablished at https://www.facebook.com/refablished/

Winning Category

This dining room ensemble was truly a labor of love! I had the french provencial table already, but I'd painted the top black and the base gray to match my decor in my former home. I just moved into such a light, airy space that this called for some rustic white and a more natural stained top!

Using a variety of blonder shades of stain and greys, I achieved the color I wanted and then sealed the top with General Finishes' Arm R Seal, with four coats for long-lasting durability. It provides such a deep glow and the perfect amount of shine!

Winning Category

A once peeling table now becomes a bright rainbow of colors. I first sanded the top to bare wood . I then used a water spray bottle to mist the wood for easier blending of the paint. I used patina green and Klein blue streaking back and forth with  a brush till it looked blended. I then applied burnt umber in various stokes to add a wood look, applying in strokes randomly. I used the Klein blue on the over all bottom then repeated the steps above but leaving more of the Klein blue showing on the sides. The front I also blended till I got the look I wanted.

Chippy Goodness

By Rusted & Rescued, Owner

Winning Category

This antique, either late 1890s or early 1900s, medicine cabinet had layers and layers of your typical farmhouse white paint on it.  I stripped it down, then built it back up in my signature style of distress. I used three colors and several layers of paint, plus a custom color.  I used Antique White, Linen, and Basil.  I mixed the Antique White with Basil for a really very pretty subtle key lime color. The mirror on the door has lost some of its silvering, but to me that is just more delicious charactor. It has a functioning key and works perfectly. I am keeping this bad boy.

The cutest, little china cabinet you've ever seen had all the right curves, just not the right shade! She was painted using General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint all the way down to her "waist". The legs were left bare and freshened up with a coat of Walnut stain. The painted body was distressed back in spots to reveal the original wood stain and perfect amount of green, chippy paint that was original to the cabinet. The piece was then sealed with General Finishes Flat Out Flat for the final touch.

Originally from a full 5-piece bedroom set that had been turned into various customer needs, this piece remained and the carved wheat inlay called 'Farmhouse' to me.  The base coat is Antique White Milk Paint and then I hand glazed with Van Dyke Brown Glaze Effects.

Fresh off the Farm

By James and Brenda Hess, Owners at Rundown Rustics in Riverton, UT.

Winning Category

Covered in cream lead base paint, this late 1800's piece was just sad.  During the stripping process we found it had been painted several times through the years.  Once we got down to the wood we found a gorgeous oak side board.  The drawers had fallen apart with broken pieces that needed a lot of work.  We found old scraps of oak and hand dovetailed them to match the original pieces.  We felt like a beautiful dark top with a white base would give it the perfect touch of country chic.

Textured Farm Table

By Fresh Paint, Owner in Starkville, MS.

Winning Category

This piece was literally coming apart, but I knew it could be salvaged. It had a "chippy" look to it which I loved, but by the time we finished rebuilding and stabilizing, most of that wonderful finish was gone. I wanted to recreate that look so this is how I did it:  I painted the table Brick Red, yes, I said red, and then I applied a mixture of Sea Spray in Linen to give it that rugged, worn, aged look. Then I painted the whole thing Antique White and once dry, started sanding to my hearts desire.

It was then lightly dry brushed in Heirloom Traditions feathered nest and Verdigris. The inside frame and shelves were painted in Heirloom Traditions feathered nest.

Chippy Chic

By Shawna J. Shaw, Owner at 'Shawna Jeannine Painted Furniture' in Warrenton, VA

Winning Category

Layers of milk paint were applied to this antique potato bin to simulate years of chippy goodness.  A first layer of Miss Mustard Seed's 'Grainsack' was applied, followed by a layer of 'Lucketts Green', followed by another layer of 'Grainsack'.  No bonding agent was used in order to embrace "natural chips and peels over the years."  A light sanding revealed hues from underlying colors.  Light and dark wax were used to enhance the "aged" patina and General Finishes 'Nutmeg' gel stain rounded out the natural, loved-over-time look on the top.

You'd never believe that this beautiful cabinet was pulled from the trash compactor at the county dump! After some serious repair and a little love, it has new life and purpose. To get this look, I repaired doors and woodwork, filled, sanded, and wiped clean then went over the whole piece with General Finishes Walnut Gel Stain. I did a light coat of High Performance Top Coat then brought out the details with some Winter White Glaze. Once the glaze was dry, I sealed with High Performance Satin for extra durability.

Farmhouse Chic Table and Chairs

By The Charming Home

We took an outdated 1980's table and chairs and brought it into the farmhouse era. First, we hand painted the chairs in Lamp Black and the table base in Snow White. Then we used General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. We applies it to the tabletop and wiped back. We wanted more depth, so we waited 72 hours then applied General Finishes Pitch Black Glaze to achieve the perfect driftwood effect. We sealed the top with General Finishes Gel Topcoat and the rest with one coat of Minwax Polycrylic in Satin and the last two coats in General Finishes Flat Out Flat.

Chippy and Sweet

By Claudia Whitcraft at Vintage Soul Barn in Lebanon, IN.

Winning Category

This sweet little dresser was in dire need of rehabbing. I removed two layers of warped veneer from the top. The whole piece was thoroughly cleaned and I applied Vaseline to create the chippy distressed effect. The piece was painted in General Finishes Empire Gray Chalk Paint and GF Antique White Milk Paint. The dresser was then distressed and glazed with General Finishes Van Dyke Brown Glaze. I love the natural look of the distressing. The whole piece (including the raw wood top) was sealed with GF High Performance Poly in a Flat finish. In rural Indiana country chic is very popular.

This old gal had certainly seen better days. I got her for next to nothing at the thrift store because the drawers were stuck pretty tight. I usually avoid pieces with serious drawer issues but she was too pretty to leave behind, so I took my chances. After prying the drawers loose, and spending hours sanding and planing she was finally ready for her makeover.

Vintage Navy Blue Dresser

By Lee, Owner at Bee's Knees Custom Designs in Anoka, MN.

Winning Category

Who says you need white or gray for a farmhouse inspired dresser? I like to think navy helps modernize the look -- especially General Finishes Coastal Blue. I lightly sanded the dresser before applying the navy blue paint. I used an antiquing wax to seal the dresser and create an even deeper and darker navy. This is definitely one of my favorite colors to use. ❤️
