"Wanted to share a picture of this set of double doors. They are about 7 ft. tall by 6ft. wide, and feature mahogany, walnut, cherry, maple, and white oak. No dyes or stains used in this piece! It was GF Exterior 450 Topcoat only. These are actually the natural colors of the wood! Since I discovered your Exterior 450, it is all I use to finish my pieces now!

Gorgeous farmhouse table by GF's very own - and very talented - Tom Monahan!

Jen's Furniture Rehab​ is ready for spring!"Now this was a fun project!! It took two days and myself and two helpers to remove every bit of the stuffing and about 5 million staples from this chair!! I would refer whoever upholstered this chair to everyone!! Once it was naked, I covered it in General Finishes Sunglow Milk Paint, and since it's rated for outdoor use, I skipped the sealer! By the end of the summer, I hope to see it fully engulfed in a different kind of floral beauty!!"
