"Solid maple wood buffet. This gorgeous buffet was not always quite this stunning. After a good cleaning and some elbow grease, I sanded the top down to the original wood and stained it in General Finishes Ash Gray Gel Stain. For the body, I chose General Finishes Alabaster, a beautiful mix of Antique White and Snow White. The hardware also got a fresh look in antique bronze. The edges were given a light distressing for that worn, antiqued effect." - Ray's Refurbishing

"This is a fun before and after!
My client kept this piece of her father’s after he passed away and asked me if there was anything that could be done with it.

Paint color: General Finishes Antique White" - Flipping Unbelievable

"Entire piece was cleaned, scuff sanded, primed a few hundred times, and then painted/sealed using General Finishes Brushable White Enamel in satin! As you can see from the before picture, there was some grain with this piece and you’ll still be able to catch some glimpses of that texture under all that paint!
