"{bare with me} as I share a story and details about this stunning barrister! To start it is an antique Humphrey stackable cabinet. Through research we believe it’s circa early 1900s. If you check out the last photo it shows the working mechanisms (crazy!) Kyle picked this up from an estate sale (the same one where we found our forever cabinet for our kitchen)The person who owned the home was a woodworker, and it appeared that this was going to be next on his project list. It was in pieces but...

The pool cue and ball holder were spray finished using Enduro Black Poly. Today my client forwarded pictures of his new table all complete with new blue felt on the playing field." - Paint and Hammer    
"We got this late 1800’s to early 1900’s table in with some oil based paint brushed on it. The client wanted it back to a natural wood look. These are often fun because you're not sure what you're going to see when the paint comes off! It turns out this table has been through a lot! It’s been used, repaired, dyed, stained, added onto, veneer removed, and painted. It had areas of oak end grain, maple, mahogany veneer, white, and red oak. It was a mess! Because of this it was near impossible to...

"Our wonderful friends at UNika Customs, LLC hooked us up with this really cool, old, midcentury modern bench and we just fell in love with its potential! We were able to strip down that worn down finish to the bare walnut wood before refinishing it with Java Gel Stain and High Performance Topcoat by General Finishes. The original leather had too much wear and tear to fix, so we decided to reupholster the cushions in a more modern, boho, white velvet. Unique pieces like this one don’t...

"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...

It worked perfectly giving the turned legs some accent and depth!"

"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...
