American Walnut

"I just love round coffee tables! This one had seen better days; the old veneer needed to be removed and replaced and I chose this beautiful mahogany piece, stained in American Walnut Liquid Oil Based Stain, to match the decor in my customer's home. Being my first time replacing an entire veneer top, I was definitely intimidated but I learned so much along the way. The base of the table was painted my favorite black, General Finishes Lamp Black, and sealed for ultra durability." - Fin +...

"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      

"A dear friend trusted my vision to transform this buffet I found for her... This oak buffet was painted in General Finishes Key West Blue [Chalk Style Paint] and distressed.

The rusty bronze hardware brings it all together perfectly!" - Nap Time Creations

"I'll be honest. I have a slight obsession with rocking chairs. Their place in the home goes well beyond a nursery. They make wonderful additions to your family room, bedroom, or that quaint little nook! The chair was refreshed with General Finishes Antique Walnut and Black gel stains and sealed with Miss Mustard Seed's hemp oil.

"In the end we will all become stories...

Missing drawers, layers of filth, a rotting leather top, and a rusty, pieced together sheet metal back were no match for me!

The leather was taken off.  Rusty back peeled away.  Empty shelves sawed out.  Hardware removed.  Thoroughly cleaned. Body completely sanded.  Drawers lightly sanded to preserve some patina.
