"Did you know you can spray water based wood stain? I will occasionally spray stain when I plan on going darker or working with a lot of spindles. These counter stools were stained in General Finishes Espresso water based stain and then the seats were upholstered in new fabric. This set was done for my own home, my messy kids have a tendency of using the seat as a napkin which drives me crazy so I made sure to scotch guard the fabric for protection."

This beautiful Thomasville buffet did not sell in its original dated condition. The brass hardware was removed from the back and the top stripped and sanded down to remove all scratches and rings. The top was stained expresso and the body was painted in a rich custom mixed bright turqouise. It was then glazed with GF pitch black glaze and crumpled bags were used to get the faux effect. The entire piece was topcoated with GF High Performance Topcoat in flat. The result is an updated buffet/...
