"Gorgeous solid wood buffet. This piece was in amazing condition to begin with, so left a lot of it natural wood. Freshened it up with a coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and their High Performance Topcoat. And for the shell/body I used General Finishes Reverent Gray. The hardware was left original to the piece. It’s got a great mix of classic and modern." - Ray's Refurbishing

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.

Ok, I'm legit proud of this transformation, not gonna lie... the original finish was super thick and drippy white paint that I think they put some sort of brown glaze over. It just looks dirty and sad . I had to strip it all off and go back to basics. For the top I stained it in...

"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

"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...

"Chose General Finishes Tuscan Red because its a beautiful shade of red with its old world charm and deep rustic tones. After two applications I was going to accent with dark wax but opted to use the GF Java Gel as the accent because that’s what I used to stain the top and lower shelf. It worked perfectly giving the turned legs some accent and depth!"

The original hardware was refinished to give it that classic Saga series walnut/gold look. Everything was then...

To make sure it kept that gorgeous finish for years to come, we then gave it multiple coats of General Finishes High Performance Top Coat." - First State Vintage
