And stained it.

We decided we wanted to have a contrast color so we taped off portions of the piece and stained them a lighter color.

  1. Gorgeous wood! I'm so glad to see someone refinish a nice piece rather than painting everything.

    1. Thanks! We do both paint and stain depending on the condition of the piece. The determining factors are the grain of the wood, any defects or chips, we tend to use a darker stain and paint, If the wood is pretty with a lot of character we will stain with a light stain or natural finish. It all depends :) It's an adventure every time!

    1. Thanks Danielle! We have tried them all, don't really have a favorite but we tend to lean towards the fastest, strongest, paste available. On this piece we used Klean Strip KS-3 Premium Stripper. Really messy but it does the job!

  8. Very beautiful transformation! Gorgeous piece and fab job on bringing back the natural wood. I don't think you are charging enough for it! In my neck of the woods, you could command a higher price for sure!
    I'm loving the MCM pieces and have been on a kick lately trying to score some vintage pieces. Just finished my 2nd credenza (I did one in Tangerine that sold in a week!) Would love to have you
    check it out! Thanks!

  12. My hats off to you! We used that same stripper for a bow front buffet that had six different colors of paint of it...about 18 layers! It was a major job!!
