Bringing it Back to Life

Since the veener was already in disarray on this 1940's dresser, I carefully spent sometime removing it so that it exposed the beautiful wood underneath. After a process of sanding starting with 100 grit, then to 150 grit and finally to 220 grit giving the dresser a smooth finish and accept the stain. I started with the frame and top using 3 coats of General Finishes "Black" gel stain, and then staining the drawers and main body with 3 coats of General  Finishes "New Pine" gel stain. I saned the black to give it a light distressed look to it, and then completed the final process spraying 3 coats of General Finishes "Top Coat" clear satin to bring out the luster of both stains.The hardware was carefully cleaned and sparyed in a lacquer black.
