"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.
