This Dining table came to me in a reasonable condition. solid wood legs and feet.  Veneer on the top. 

I wanted to test the Java gel stain.  The only good thing about this veneer top is it had a nice grain to it. 

The result after Appling a thin coat of Java gel stain was stunning.  The grain from the veneer shone through,

The top was finished off with the general finishes high performance top coat in satin. I used 4 coats. 

The bottom of this table has been done in Basil milk paint.  completely compliments the java. 

I put this table into a competition, so many people wanted it and loved the colours.  It was won by a young couple who has just bought their first home.  

I was delighted with the finished result.
