"The White Oak used to make this dining set traveled half-way across the country from a custom sawmill in New York, owned and operated by Margaret Liebert’s father. The tree grew on their family farm and was milled by her father and her brother. She brought the wood back to IL and began searching for someone to turn it into a dining set. We are so honored that you chose us to make this special piece for you that can be passed down through the family for years to come. How wonderful it will be...
"I asked the client what they wanted. She said, "Black....and just do your thing". I love when they say that!
So, this beautiful, mahogany gal is all dressed out in black, but with some sliming stripes, and some raised design on the drawers and doors. These stunning silver pulls add the perfect finish to the look." - Designs by Dee

"I just love round coffee tables! This one had seen better days; the old veneer needed to be removed and replaced and I chose this beautiful mahogany piece, stained in American Walnut Liquid Oil Based Stain, to match the decor in my customer's home. Being my first time replacing an entire veneer top, I was definitely intimidated but I learned so much along the way. The base of the table was painted my favorite black, General Finishes Lamp Black, and sealed for ultra durability." - Fin +...

Custom Buffet in Flint Oil Based Stain
"This solid oak dining set was the sturdiest furniture I’ve had the pleasure of working on yet. When I looked for signs of craftsmanship I found out that it was built in Yugoslavia, which I found interesting and made it even more special to refinish! Once I got to work, I discovered that the wood pattern beneath the old finish was so symmetrical it was almost uncanny, and exposing it gave the table a fresh, updated look. All pieces were sanded down to natural wood, stained with General Finishes...

"This was stained with General Finishes American Walnut then got a light coat of Black Gel Stain- I say light because I was impatient and didn't wait the recommended time & my first coat of Arm-R-Seal took quite a bit of the black off. The tops then got 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal Satin, my favorite topcoat!" - Flipping Fabulous
This project is a combination of a tile top table and a portable coaster. The tile was custom made at a local pottery shop. The table was inspired by the splay-legged table by Garrett Hack. The top and aprons are natural cherry. The legs are stained cherry. General Finishes products were used to complete the project. The wood conditioner and stain were straightforward and easy to use. For the topcoat I found applying the finish with a foam brush and wiping the excess off with a cloth...

"This little beauty needed a lot of work but had great bones. The veneer on top was cracked and needed to be removed. The two cabinet doors were cracked as well so new ones were custom made and trim added to the front. She was given a good sanding and cleaning and then stained with GF Salem from top to bottom. She was then painted with GF Lamp Black on the body. I added a coat of gel stain in Antique Walnut to the top to add...

"I picked up a bunch of these chairs from an old church in Denver. They are original to the church which was built in 1920's. I sanded this set, used 50/50 Shellac/D-Natured Alcohol conditioner. I then stained them in General Finishes 'Spiced Walnut'(liquid oil based stain). I did two coats and waited 24 hrs between coats. Some areas wouldn't take the stain so I dry brushed some GF gel stain in Java in those areas. It magically blended it all together. Sealed with GF's Arm-R-Seal." - Rehab to...
"This table had been previously stripped (you can see the old paint underneath) The top needed a coat of stain and top coat. I could have painted it but sometimes you just need listen to the piece. So I cleaned it really well, lightly buffed with fine sand paper and added a coat of General Finishes Light Oak Oil Based Wood Stain. A couple coats of Arm-R-Seal & its look beautiful again." - Rehab to Fab
Rehab to Fab says, "This solid oak chest screamed make me new again.

Tinted with General Finishes Oil Based Spiced Walnut stain. Distressed Antique Bronze Bin pulls finish the piece off. I wanted to keep it more original & not cover it completely with paint."
