General “Finishes” Dresser Perfectly

Sometimes you get a piece of furniture with a story behind it that just makes you happy to be able to restore it.  As with this dresser…

Julie brought this to me to have redone for a friend.  It had been through a house fire and meant a lot to both of them.  She asked if I could stain the entire piece.  Now I usually don’t (or haven’t) stained furniture.  I will do the occasional  top, but not an entire piece, but the story behind it made me want to do it.  So I sanded, stained, glued, replaced the missing mirror and varathaned…

I have to tell you General Finishes Java Gel is AMAZING!  What a transformation.  The ease of use and the finish on this is beautiful.  I would recommend it to anyone!

Here are some before and afters of the transformed piece.
















Thanks Julie for entrusting me with such a special piece!
