Last Chance Gel Stain Project

By Tessa at Room Thirteen, Brighton, UK, Owner at Room Thirteen in Brighton, GB

This sideboard was a very sorry sight, a previous owner decided it was a good idea to stain/varnish it in a very thick layer of orangey brown, very disgusting colour. It took a few days to sand back and then I could completely transform it to the gorgeous piece it is today.

I can't buy GF Gel Stain in the UK anymore which I was not too happy about as I really loved working with it and the results are just stunning. So this is the last piece I used my last scrapings of Gel Stain on! 

The drawers are painted in Coastal Blue and sealed all surfaces with  GF Topcoat in Satin.
