"This set should get lots of usage. Hopefully it also inspires some agents for closing gift ideas. General Finishes Black Gel Stain and rattle can gold and silver for an epic look. Burly Bags hooked up the bags." - PhilsBoards    
This set symbolizes home for me. When you grow up with the Snake River canyon and the Perrine Bridge in your everyday scenery, it’s easy to take this magnificent view for granted. Moving away from it for a few years while I went away for college brought a whole new appreciation for it.    General Finishes Black, Java, Antique Walnut, Brown Mahogany, New Pine, American Oak & Mixol blue

"Talk about HANDSOME!!! This table is a treasured family heirloom of Christina and her family. Originally belonging to her great great grandma! To say the pressure was on was an understatement! We decided to remove all of the veneer on both shelves since it was VERY damaged. Sanded it all down, treated it with a coat of General Finishes Pre-Stain Conditioner since the shelves are made of a different wood than the legs. I needed all the help I could get to get the stain to go on nice and...

"Holy moly was this a big project! Stripping these babies down, getting in all the nooks and crannies, pre-stain treatment, 3 coats of stain and 3 coats of top coat... to reveal the fresh new look for this custom bed frame. Stained in General Finishes Java and Black Gel Stains, top coated in  Arm-R-Seal."

The BlastRite sets Such a fresh logo. These boards took 3 sets of full sized stencils and a roll of frog tape to get the look we were after, 3 re-masks is not for the faint of heart. But the reveal was so satisfying. Thanks to bbrothersbags for the bags. You always come through and I’m very grateful for you. I really wish you could hear all the compliments I get from your bags.

"Talk about elbow grease! Nicole knew her bedroom set had some great bones and it was SOLID wood but she wanted a color update with it. After sanding it down completely to bare wood I used the General Finishes pre-stain conditioner to help it stain more evenly and then stained it in a custom mix of General Finishes Java and Black Gel Stains and finally sealing it in 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal to protect it for years to come!" - Upcycling by Amy

"This ash coffee table had been well loved and in serious need of restoration. The base was a bit wobbly so using The Gorilla Glue Company wood glue, I applied to the affected area. I clamped the base and removed the excess glue with a blue shop cloth. After letting the glue dry overnight, prepared to paint by cleaning the base and taping to avoid paint getting all over the underside. I painted using my trusty Annie Sloan’s Athenian Black and sealing with her clear wax. The top was sanded...
"Another custom set of cornhole boards for a couple where one is from Seattle and one is from San Francisco. I love the way this set came out and the bags by West Georgia Cornhole were perfect. I used General Finishes Gel Stains in Black, Ash Gray and of course New Pine that I mixed with Mixol tints to get just the right colors!" - Greg's Boards and More

"Onyx. She's a dark beauty that had a fantastic old world look, but with a blend of Maple and Oak (neither stain the same). We decided she needed something more so we took her down the bold route!   Refreshed with a dramatic Black Gel Stain by General Finishes and sealed in our favorite hand applied Arm-R-Seal in Gloss and Satin after a gentle edge distress to show off those curves!" - Restoration Reserve    
"It’s no secret that navy & gold is one of my favorite combos, so you know I was excited when my customer chose those colors for her heirloom china cabinet. This special piece has been in her husband's family and they love it, but the dated orange finish didn’t complement their beautifully decorated home. One thing that was important to my customer, is that we showed off some of the wood and stain it in a less orange, more brown finish. We decided to paint the body, and then refinish the...

Sugar Pine bottle openers: Black, Java & Gray Gel Stain

"I love a good before and after, don’t you?! My client’s brother made this for her back when he was in high school and she’s kept it all these years. Isn’t that the sweetest?! It’s gotten a darker and richer stain along with new glass pulls. This was a 70/30 mix of General Finishes Antique Walnut & Black Gel Stain. Finished off with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal in Satin."     
"This 6 drawer antique piece received a full refinish in deep GF Tobacco Water Based Stain.   Stunning hand applied three dimensional raised floral finish added to all 6 drawer fronts with an antique wash of General Finishes Lamp Black on the floral followed by slight hand rubbing of GF Black Gel Stain to "age" and deepen some areas to allow the beautiful wood tones to show through."   
"Did something a little different because variety is the spice of life, right?! Loving how this super sleek and moody piece turned out! The contrast of the petite knobs that coordinate with the (practically indestructible) Formica top are simple yet oh so elegant. Color~ General Finishes Gel Stain in Black and sealed with 2 coats of Arm-R-Seal Gloss for clarity and a final coat of Satin for a beautiful subtle glow✨"   

This hutch received an update while staying true to the client's decor.  Refinished in Black Stain with the doors and drawers done in Antique Oak, a two tone combination challenging the outdated stigma that black and brown can pair well together.

The bones of this kitchen are amazing, we just needed to add paint and glaze to make it brighter, and custom to the clients decor. The outer cabinets had Antique white and Van Dyke Brown glaze and the hutch and island had several layers of glaze. And when I say layers, it was 7 and that doesn’t include priming and sealing. Yikes, we sure did need an arm massage at the end of this one! 

"When I started on this 102 year old Empire dresser I would never have guessed it would end up like this! This gorgeous ribbon veneer was hidden from the world under a deep opaque cherry stain for far too long.   My client had a preferred color but also understood that wood furniture can have a mind (and color) of its own, and old finishes can penetrate so deep that sometimes you aren’t left with a lot of options. I am pleased to report that my hours of stripping and sanding paid off and...

"This beautiful burled walnut vintage chest was refinished in a custom toner to preserve and deepen the beautiful grain. It was created using General Finishes Black water based stain and HPTC, in a 1:4 ratio. The body was painted in GF Queenstown Gray Milk Paint." Mettle Modern Design                
"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
