Gel stain allows you to make any painted surface (wood, laminate, metal) look like dark stained wood as long as you know the right process. I love to restore furniture and give it a new life. These end tables had water damage and a horrible orange stain
It’s amazing what a coat of gel stain can do to restore a tired-looking piece of furniture. The cool part is that you don’t need to strip the old finish for this to work.-Just in time for my table project!
A thorough cleaning is an important first step in any furniture renewal project. Removing decades of dirt and grime often restores much of the original luster. Kevin says it’s hard to believe, but it’s perfectly OK to wash furniture with soap and water.
