"Sometimes my clients don’t want a dramatic makeover. Occasionally the client wants their piece restored back to its original finish. That was the case here for this antique chest. I did some repair work to the bottom, removed what was left of the finish, then stained using General Finishes Georgian Cherry Gel Stain and sealed with a Satin Top Coat. My client liked the character of this piece, but it did need a revival. I love how this turned out!" - Flipping Unbelievable

Over the years, the table top finish wore down (last 2 pics show the difference between the table top and the leaf) and their budding artists left signs of glitter glue, pen and marker from their precious creations. My clients wanted the resin part of the table top removed and the wood underneath stained The resin was very difficult to remove. Stripper wouldn’t take it off so I...
