Furniture Design Ideas featuring Oil Wood Stains.

"After fixing a few of the drawer guides that had come loose and a good old fashion sanding I stained the drawers and legs in General Finishes Flint Oil Stain and the outside is painted in a new-to-me color Mélange Artisan Mineral Paints Solstice." - Upcycling by Amy    
"This drop leaf table has such a cool look to it, I knew it deserved a second chance at life but just needed some chairs to go with it! I gave it all a good sanding and cleaning, painted the base and chairs in Mélange Artisan Mineral Paints Restoration Bronze and reupholstered the seats. Top was stained in General Finishes Flint Liquid Oil Stain which I think compliments the paint color perfectly!" - Upcycling by Amy    
It’s amazing what some paint, new hardware, new oak tops and lined drawers can do. Paint-...
"To say I’m pretty proud of these chairs would be a huge understatement! These solid walnut Gunlocke chairs have been stripped of their old, thick, failing finish and stained in General Finishes Candlelight to match a dining table we did a couple of years ago. What a magnificent set and such a lucky find for my client!" - Newbac Designs

"The White Oak used to make this dining set traveled half-way across the country from a custom sawmill in New York, owned and operated by Margaret Liebert’s father. The tree grew on their family farm and was milled by her father and her brother. She brought the wood back to IL and began searching for someone to turn it into a dining set. We are so honored that you chose us to make this special piece for you that can be passed down through the family for years to come. How wonderful it will be...

Custom Buffet in Flint Oil Based Stain

"This solid oak dining set was the sturdiest furniture I’ve had the pleasure of working on yet. When I looked for signs of craftsmanship I found out that it was built in Yugoslavia, which I found interesting and made it even more special to refinish! Once I got to work, I discovered that the wood pattern beneath the old finish was so symmetrical it was almost uncanny, and exposing it gave the table a fresh, updated look. All pieces were sanded down to natural wood, stained with General Finishes...

Bonus that the puppers matches!" - Stage Stop Designs

Flint Liquid Oil Based Stain

"It’s amazing what some fresh paint and stain can do for a really tired finish on a piece of furniture! This table was purchased in 1934 at a Stickley furniture store by my clients great grandmother for her daughter and husband, his grandma and grandpa, as a wedding gift.   The tabletop was stained in General Finishes Candlelight Oil Based Stain and I used Arm-R-Seal oil based topcoat for a durable finish.

Charming, charming and more charming! This sweet piece of my clients family history is done and has gone back home!

The entire table was stripped of its old finishes revealing several different woods used to build it. The legs and end panels are curly maple, a couple of the little feet are oak, the side panels where the sweet, handmade hinges are are walnut and the inside side panels are mahogany. The three tabletop panels are a mystery. It has the wood tone of red oak but not the...

This was a piece picked out from our warehouse by my almost sister-in-law, for her bedroom. She picked out a great shade in Fusion Mineral Paint Homestead Blue, distressed, & sealed with High Performance Satin. The top & drawers were stained with General Finishes Walnut Oil Based Stain - the drawers turned out darker than the top, so I used...

"This was stained with General Finishes American Walnut then got a light coat of Black Gel Stain- I say light because I was impatient and didn't wait the recommended time & my first coat of Arm-R-Seal took quite a bit of the black off. The tops then got 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal Satin, my favorite topcoat!" - Flipping Fabulous      

This project is a combination of a tile top table and a portable coaster.  The tile was custom made at a local pottery shop.  The table was inspired by the splay-legged table by Garrett Hack.  The top and aprons are natural cherry. The legs are stained cherry.  General Finishes products were used to complete the project.  The wood conditioner and stain were straightforward and easy to use.  For the topcoat I found applying the finish with a foam brush and wiping the excess off with a cloth...

This Ginkgo Biloba inspired bureau was build around contrasts: matt & shine, dark & bright, classic & modern. 

I've chosen black and dark shades of greys as a canvas for sparkling copper accents. I used copper leafs and some metallic paint to achieve the look. 

I love leaving the best parts of the original woodwork so i left old intarsia around the edges and i refreshed the top of the piece by applying general finishes maple woodstain.

General Finishes products to the rescue!" - Amy of High Style Restyle   See all the details of this project at http://www.highstylerestyle.com/blog/how-to-restore-an-antique-dropleaf-...    
"I picked up a bunch of these chairs from an old church in Denver. They are original to the church which was built in 1920's. I sanded this set, used 50/50 Shellac/D-Natured Alcohol conditioner. I then stained them in General Finishes 'Spiced Walnut'(liquid oil based stain). I did two coats and waited 24 hrs between coats. Some areas wouldn't take the stain so I dry brushed some GF gel stain in Java in those areas. It magically blended it all together. Sealed with GF's Arm-R-Seal." - Rehab to...
"This table had been previously stripped (you can see the old paint underneath) The top needed a coat of stain and top coat. I could have painted it but sometimes you just need listen to the piece. So I cleaned it really well, lightly buffed with fine sand paper and added a coat of General Finishes Light Oak Oil Based Wood Stain. A couple coats of Arm-R-Seal & its look beautiful again." - Rehab to Fab
Rehab to Fab says, "This solid oak chest screamed make me new again. I painted the the frame with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in 'Curio' & the inside, top, backsplash, drawer fronts & side slats got a good soaking of tinted Hemp Oil. Tinted with General Finishes Oil Based Spiced Walnut stain. Distressed Antique Bronze Bin pulls finish the piece off. I wanted to keep it more original & not cover it completely with paint."
