We typically paint all the pieces of furniture we work on, but by special request from a customer, we sanded this one down and retained it, and I'm happy we did! It came out so beautiful and looks brand new. As much as we love painted furniture, it does feel good to preserve the original look of certain pieces that are in good enough condition to save. Most of our painted pieces were damaged from years of use. In cases like that paint is the best way to cover up the repairs and make it valuable and useful again. ⠀
Personally, I enjoy a mixture of painted and unpainted pieces in my home, but what about you? Do you prefer painted pieces, unpainted pieces or a combination of both?
We used @generalfinishes #gelstain to revive this piece!
