Top drawers finished with Burnished Pearl Effects for a shimmer of gold and bottom drawers finished with a green wash to create a rich brown color (many kinds of wood often tend to lean to red after sanded).

"These little oak dressers are one of my favorites to renew! The body was painted in General Finishes Lamp Black while the top and drawers were stained in a custom blend of Antique Walnut and Java Gel Stains, the two pair perfectly together! New modern farmhouse iron hardware and ticking stripe drawer liners complete this transformation and have given this beauty a second life!"

"I love a good before and after, don’t you?! My client’s brother made this for her back when he was in high school and she’s kept it all these years. Isn’t that the sweetest?! It’s gotten a darker and richer stain along with new glass pulls. This was a 70/30 mix of General Finishes Antique Walnut & Black Gel Stain. Finished off with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal in Satin."

Georgian Cherry Parlor Table

"This little parlor table was found at least two years ago. It was in horrible condition finish wise and had a bum leg from numerous bad repairs. But I had to have it because I could see so much potential. Once I started working on it, I learned it had been refinished at least once before and the veneer on the top was paper thin. What does that mean? That meant I had to be extra extra careful when I sanded so I didn’t go through the veneer and ruin the chances of staining the beautiful top.

Nutmeg and Custom Orange Buffet

"I started working on this buffet over 2 years ago. I had planned to strip the entire piece and refinish, but after stripping it 3 times, sanding, and stripping again some of the stubborn finish still would not come off the sides and front of the frame. So I had to paint those areas in this burnt orange color to match my living room rug. Buffet stained in General Finishes Nutmeg Gel Stain, sealed with Arm-R-Seal in gloss. Painted in a mix of General Finishes Persimmon and Lamp Black Milk…

Whew! After 30+ hours of intense labor, it is done. Ladies and gentlemen, friends and fans, we are proud to announce the rebirth of our foyer. Where to begin? First, I must explain the problem. The staircase was natural blonde oak. Dated and dreadful. NOT the first impression I ever wanted ...
