Transforming a Side Dish Table into a Main Course Masterpiece

By Isabella's Inspirations, Furniture Painter & Designer in Woodbridge, VA.

Winning Category

Is it easier for you to watch a demonstration video rather than read a 'how-to' article? I agree! That is why I decided to share a video on transforming a dark, traditional side table into a beautiful piece for a coastal-vibed family room. Once I knew this family room would take on a beach theme, General Finishes Persian Blue Milk Paint was the first color that I thought to use. This soft blue is reminiscient of an ocean view with the sun shining down and reflecting off the beautiful and endless blue waters.

Spice it Up

By Meg Foster in Green Bay, WI.

Winning Category

Hi I'm Meg and I wanted to show y'all just how easy it can be to turn an old used piece of furniture and make it beautiful again. The best feature that I love about General Finishes paint is that it is self leveling so when you have finished the piece there are virtually no brush strokes, without even sanding! I like to start with a foam brush because it is so easy to get the paint onto the furniture and achieve nice even strokes. But I also like to use my smaller standard paint brushed to get the fine details that the foam brush just cannot reach.
