Duncan Phyfe Slate Grey Dining Set with Refinished Mahogany Dining Table Top

By Virginia Aiello, Co-Owner and Furniture Designer at Two Old Souls in Wake Forest, NC.

This mahogany Dining Set was completely refinished, leaving no detail untouched.  The dining top was stripped and sanded.  Antique Walnut Gel stain was used to darked up the mahogany wood. Nutmeg Gel Stain was layed on top to bring depth and bring back a red mahogany tone to the finish.  Arm-R-Seal brought the finish to life and provides unmatched protection.  The chairs and table base were given a full coat of Graphite Chalk Paint, distressed in all the right places, and sealed with Sheer VAX for a matte finish.
