"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. I painted the the frame with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in 'Curio' & the inside, top, backsplash, drawer fronts & side slats got a good soaking of tinted Hemp Oil. 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."
