Two-Toned Gel Stain Table Top

By April Hyde, Owner at RAWHyde Furnishings in Nashville, TN.

This client wanted a black table top for her kitchen table that looked like a stained finish as opposed to a painted finish. This table had a laminate top so sanding down to the wood wasn't an option. Instead I used General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain and Black Gel Stain to try and create a wood grain look that was mostly black. I am so happy with how it turned out and these products worked great together! I finished the top with General Finishes Gel Topcoat, my favorite topcoat for dining table tops.
