"This Hepworth Mid-Century Modern dresser is so wonderfully constructed. Built in Southampton, Ontario, this dresser has six separate drawers - the top row is actually 3 separate ones.
For the top, I stripped the veneer and sanded the residue. I used General Finishes Nutmeg Gel Stain with the High Performance Topcoat with a satin finish. After sanding, I used the same products on the drawers. I removed the extraneous wood pieces on the base and sanded. The grain that came out after staining...

"I sanded the whole piece down completely to bare wood, stained it in General Finishes American Oak and Colonial Maple Gel Stain to try to compliment the color of a dresser in her bedroom already. Once happy with the color match the whole piece was sealed in 3 coats of GF Arm-R-Seal to protect it for years to come! To really finish off the new and improved look, I did a deep clean on the hardware to take off all the black tarnish from year of grime. Stained pieces are a LOT of work especially...
"Totally craving a latte and some dark chocolate when i look at this combo of General Finishes Linen Milk Paint and Java Gel Stain! This big triple dresser got a desperately needed fresh look with new modern hardware.
I told my client at first that I was hesitant to refinish the veneer top because of some damage to it, but I’m so glad she asked me twice! I got over my fear of sanding veneer for fear of burning through it down to the MDF and it did NOT disappoint! So glad i did it! Look at...

Bombay Lift-Top Table finished in General Finishes Ash Gray Gel Stain
"This little parlor table was found at least two years ago. It was in horrible condition finish wise and had a bum leg from numerous bad repairs. But I had to have it because I could see so much potential. Once I started working on it, I learned it had been refinished at least once before and the veneer on the top was paper thin. What does that mean? That meant I had to be extra extra careful when I sanded so I didn’t go through the veneer and ruin the chances of staining the beautiful top....
"I started working on this buffet over 2 years ago. I had planned to strip the entire piece and refinish, but after stripping it 3 times, sanding, and stripping again some of the stubborn finish still would not come off the sides and front of the frame. So I had to paint those areas in this burnt orange color to match my living room rug. Buffet stained in General Finishes Nutmeg Gel Stain, sealed with Arm-R-Seal in gloss. Painted in a mix of General Finishes Persimmon and Lamp Black Milk Paint...
