Water Based Wood Stain

"This set is sooo nice and it’s made out of solid maple! When I purchased this set it was finished in a very dated orange wood color and had ugly hardware…So I got rid of all the ugly! I gave the set a whole new look by painting the bases in General Finishes Lamp black and refinished the tops in GF Graystone Water Based Wood Stain then added new hardware to complete the new look!" - NB.Restorations    
"These refreshed nightstands are just the first pieces in an entire custom bedroom set I will be working on!

Black Water Based Wood Stain

Made from scrap wood and finished with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint, Sedona water based stain and Exterior 450 top coat.
I’m loving the two tone look we went with on this mid century piece!!! I removed all the original hardware and added a fluted wood texture to the side drawers and stained them in a light wash of General Finishes antique brown then I painted the rest of the dresser in my new favorite color by Melange Paints called Turtle Dove which is a beautiful creamy taupe color that paired beautifully with the natural wood and gold hardware accents!  
"This beautiful custom maple dresser and nightstand have been completely renewed!

"My favorite stain. General Finishes Graystone. Beautiful every time!"

"This antique buffet table was painted in a old dirty white paint with red accents. The paint was just flaking off everywhere so I knew I would have to strip the whole piece down and that wasn’t fun…especially stripping the legs and spindle…lol I was surprised to find the beautiful oak wood grain that was under all those coats of paint! So I stained it in a wash of General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain to keep the wood in a natural color then sealed it in matte top coat!" - NB....
"This circa 1960 Bassett Gala dresser has the best bones but needed a fresh finish. To achieve this look we did a full strip with Klean Strip Premium Stripper, followed with a light sand in 220 grit to even the natural color. Made a wash with 1 tbsp General Finishes Antique Oak Water Based Stain and 1 cup of water. Mixed and brushed on, wiped back excess. Sealed with General Finishes High Performance Topcoat in Flat." - Saved By Design

"These solid oak tables from the 80’s and 90’s are so beautiful refinished and given new life! We paired General Finishes Lamp Black with Walnut Water Based Stain for this stunning transformation!" - Nap Time Furniture Creations    
"Coined in the 1940s, English Country House design is popular as ever as this new century progresses.   It's simple and casual style carries an elegance that one can actually feel at home in and it doesn't take itself too seriously. A mix of antique and vintage furnishings, patterned textiles, rugs, table lamps, flowers, a pinch of modern accessories and the classic hunting artwork - the more the better really. It embraces wear and tear, and it's the furthest thing from minimalism...
"This piece had been waiting sooo many years to be all shined up again! The early 1800s stained finish was practically fried from from its age! It took a lot of liquid stripper and sandpaper to bring it back to the natural wood that has been hidden for many years! Once I finished stripping the finish off I stained it in a light wash of General Finishes Graystone Water Based Stain then sealed it up in matte top coat… The crystal knobs on the bigger drawers are original to the piece and we...

"Before and after of this beautiful kitchen makeover. Did you know that stain color can be changed and made darker without removing the current finish? We used General Finishes products for this cabinet transformation by toning down the original orangey stain with Walnut water based stain and Enduro Clear Poly in gloss in a 1:4 ratio. We followed the toner process with clear Enduro poly in satin. All of the products were sprayed on using our hvlp sprayer. The results are a rich, more...
