Did you see the post this weekend where I showed you how to touch-up a scratched cherry dresser? If not, you can check it out here. That same General Finishes gel stain also works fantastic on antique furniture pieces that are sanded down to bare wood.
This sweet little table has sentimental value to a good friend of mine. Which always makes me nervous that I may not be able to finish it to the perfection it deserves.
The top and drawer-front had scratches and there were also a few at the bottom of the legs. I sanded down the top and drawer completely and then wiped on General Finishes gel stain. It took four coats to match the original full coverage stain; but eventualy it did cover the way I was hoping.
Here’s the table after four coats of the gel stain and two coats of satin polyurethane. A perfect color match!
