Great working dovetailed drawers and the original hardware. Done in industrial KCMA certified cabinet paint and drawers in General Finishes Antique Walnut stain & Arm R Seal polyurethane.
"Sanded and stained the top in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain which also meant it would need a coat of High Performance Topcoat for protection and durability. For the body she chose GFs never fails to be stunning Lamp Black. I followed that up with a light waxing and buffing. The hardware is original to the piece." - Ray's Refurbishing

These ones included personalization with their last name on the airmail brace and a couple of sweet little messages on the insides of the boards that I created from handwritten notes.

"Antique Spencer and Barnes gentleman’s Dresser.
This piece was in fantastic shape for a piece as old as it is. But it definitely needed a fresh update. I sanded the top and drawers down to the original wood, and gave it all a fresh coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. For the body/shell I chose to paint it in GF Lamp Black for a nice classy and classic look. I distressed the piece just a little to let some of the beautiful oak wood show." - Ray's Refurbishing

"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 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...

"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...

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...
