The top and drawers were then stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and sealed." - Upcycling by Amy    
"The Dodger Championship Trophy. I really like working with browns, no matter which ones you choose they just go well together. This is General Finishes Gel Stain Java, Prairie Wheat, and New Pine." - PhilsBoards    

"I had to remove a few old layers of paint to start with (not an easy/fun task). After hours and hours of removing paint I had to finish it all off with a good sanding the top to the bare wood. After that a good cleaning. Then on to paint and stain. Katie chose java gel for the top. And for the body she wanted white so I used...

"Fresh out of the shop is this stunning and unique Mid Century Modern dresser set. Made in the 1960’s, this set has been restored to look like it did when it was first manufactured 60 years ago. We started by stripping down the original walnut finish. We then stained everything with General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. 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

"As you can see in the 'before' photo this piece had MULTIPLE layers of paint and had cracked over the whole piece. Also the panel on the right door was completely cracked almost all the way up the door. So first we had to remove as much of the paint as possible with sanding snd chemicals (this was the bulk of the work honestly) and we also removed the top, broken door panel and the shelves. We then added in new door panels and and created the new shelves and top. The piece was primed and...
This is an antique that’s been in our family for almost 10 years. She served well as an office chair that got occasional use before Covid (dun dun dunnnn) but with a new WFH lifestyle for my husband, he has to go with a more ergonomic choice. Lucky you! She got a fresh stain and paint job and is ready to be re-homed. - :...

"This antique table consists of 4 leafs and 5 legs! And she is HEAVY! Stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and sealed with High Performance Top Coat Satin." - Weathered Edge Furniture, LLC.    
"This piece came to me as quite a mess... the wallpaper inside the hutch would have been a big hurdle on its own but include that with the 5 layers of paint underneath it, the random can lid that was permanently adhered inside the lower cabinet and the tacks on almost every shelf under all the paint. I didn't really know what I was getting into but I got into it pretty darn quick. It took over two weeks of sanding, peeling wallpaper, scraping chemicals off on repeat to get it to a point that...

"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...

“Hannah” has been undergoing her makeover and is now ready for her big reveal. Being an older gal with good bones, this solid oak antique dresser has traded in her orange tones for an updated look while maintaining a soft vintage style. After a thorough cleaning, the work began with sanding, staining, paint, a beautiful decor transfer on the drawer fronts and a little hardware bling for that special touch. It’s all in the finishes! She’s a classic piece with a modern twist and will continue to...

"Pair of Basset end tables. These two tables came to me in great condition other then some scuffs and old spilled paint stains on top. So for this dynamic duo I sanded down the tops and gave them a fresh coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. And for the body I painted then in GF China Blue. After they were all dried I gave them a good coat of dark wax to help protect them and keep away fingerprints. The tops were sealed in gf’s high performance top coat. Hardware was left original...
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.

"When my friend Mary approached me about surprising her husband and redoing his dad’s desk, I was so honoured. When I went to look at it in person, I was shocked with how big it was - 6 feet wide by 4 feet deep . It was going to be the biggest project I had ever taken on. While originally intended to be a surprise, Rick was looped into the process. The desk was brought to my house and literally *juuuust* fit through my front door. There was no way that it was going to go downstairs (where I...

Popping color with the wallpaper, this piece is spacious and stunning." - Sage Furnishings

"Talk about elbow grease! Nicole knew her bedroom set had some great bones and it was SOLID wood but she wanted a color update with it. After sanding it down completely to bare wood I used the General Finishes pre-stain conditioner to help it stain more evenly and then stained it in a custom mix of General Finishes Java and Black Gel Stains and finally sealing it in 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal to protect it for years to come!" - Upcycling by Amy

"This was more restoration than refurb! Sometimes you aren’t really sure what you are dealing with until you get started. I originally thought I was dealing with severe veneer issues but I am beyond pleased with how much of the natural wood I was able to salvage. The body of the buffet was spray finished in General Finishes Enduro Black Poly in Satin and the wood was stripped, sanded and stained in General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stains. Look at the beautiful spindle legs that were lost...
