"This one is for those mid century modern lovers and collectors out there! This classic, restored, cane front highboy was designed by famed creator Merton Gershun specifically for American of Martinsville. It came to our shop in perfect structural shape, it just needed a complete cosmetic refinishing. We started by stripping off the original finishing and sanding down everything very fine to show off that 1960s walnut veneer.
The veneer was stained using a custom mixture of General Finishes...
"This was a fun project to do! This old antique desk was bought in for a makeover and boy does it look good! We stripped the doors and drawers down to raw wood and refinished them in General Finishes Java Gel Stain. The rest of the piece was painted and distressed with GF Antique White EnduroPoly." - Duke Interiors and Restoration
"Finished up another little custom order for another return customer. This end table is OLD and the before picture doesn't really do it justice but it was in very rough shape.

Its revival adds a touch of modernity to this family piece and I know my client will enjoy having tea with her granddaughter in the years to come.

"This vintage Beauty came to me in need of some love, TLC and elbow grease.
I sanded down the drawers and gave them a fresh coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain along with a coat of High Performance Topcoat. The top was laminate so I had no option but to paint so I primed and then painted the shell/frame in General Finishes *Alabaster. The peg legs were also sanded and freshly stained in the same antique walnut stain." - Ray's Refurbishing

"This was another custom order for my client Katya and another piece that was built by her grandpa. I ended up taking the entire piece apart (because as you can see in the before photo, it was already missing a side and the other was the next to go!)
Once it was taken all apart, I sanded it completely down, stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and sealed in General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. I added the original feet back on and put it all back together with a new round of wood...

"After a few rounds of chemical strippers and sanding I did a wood conditioner on it and stained it in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and sealed it.

Beautiful in General Finishes Antique Walnut and Black Gel Stains.
"This adorable little piece wasn’t always so clean and pretty. It came to me with thick black paint. It also had a little something carved on the top. I sanded away all the old ugly black paint and brought this piece back to life with a fresh coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain on top along with their High Performance Topcoat. And for the body I used GF’s Perfect Gray Milk Paint. I gave it all new antique bronze hardware as well." - Ray's Refurbishing

General Finishes products were used in this project: Antique walnut Gel stain and High Performance Topcoat in satin which was sprayed for a flawless finish." - Paint and Hammer
"Sometimes pieces really put me thru my paces but when they turn out this beautiful, it is worth it! Originally discussed staining the entire piece but after painstakingly removing the top layer of veneer on the top of the dresser that was pretty severely damaged, we realized the wood underneath was not pretty and no matter how much sanding I did, it did not look good stained so we pivoted and decided to paint the frame and stain the drawers. Painted in General Finishes Lamp Black and stained...
"After LOTS of sanding and several rounds of chemicals we got down to a clean slate. We stained it in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain for the base and Java Gel Stain for the top. We kept the original knobs on the two drawers in the middle but picked out some new drop handles for the other drawers to really tie it all together!" - Upcycling by Amy

"We just love when we get rare vintage pieces into the shop. This original Broyhill Premier buffet from the Saga series came into the shop last week, and we knew there was no other option than to completely restore it back to its original condition. Some pieces just aren’t meant to be painted!
It was stripped down before being restored with General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. The original hardware was refinished to give it that classic Saga series walnut/gold look. Everything was then...

"As you can see in the 'before' photo this piece had MULTIPLE layers of paint and had cracked over the whole piece. Also the panel on the right door was completely cracked almost all the way up the door.
So first we had to remove as much of the paint as possible with sanding snd chemicals (this was the bulk of the work honestly) and we also removed the top, broken door panel and the shelves.
We then added in new door panels and and created the new shelves and top. The piece was primed and...

"This piece came to me as quite a mess... the wallpaper inside the hutch would have been a big hurdle on its own but include that with the 5 layers of paint underneath it, the random can lid that was permanently adhered inside the lower cabinet and the tacks on almost every shelf under all the paint.
I didn't really know what I was getting into but I got into it pretty darn quick. It took over two weeks of sanding, peeling wallpaper, scraping chemicals off on repeat to get it to a point that...
