Black Cherry Mantle

About This Post

"This one was definitely one of the more difficult refinishes I have done. This 100+ year old mantle was taken out of my clients home in the 80s and put in a barn and sat there for 40 years exposed to the elements as the barn began to fall into disrepair. It took SOOOOO much sanding and stripping to get back down to the original cherry wood through the old finish and years and years of grime. But with some perseverance and my go to product lines at General Finishes this mantle is back and beautiful as ever. Finished in GF Black Cherry Water Based Stain and finished with 2 coats of High Performance Topcoat in gloss with Provincial Water Based Stain used as toner followed with the final coat of Satin. Soooo much work but the end result was definitely worth it." - Twin Grove Design
