Refinished Hutch

This is the second piece out of a full dining set that I’ve refinished for a family. The gal’s grandfather purchased this set as a gift for his wife on his way home after serving in World War II.
I used General Finishes Pecan Stain, followed by General Finishes Van Dyke Brown Glaze and then topcoated it with 3 coats of General Finishes Waterbase Enduro Poly.

Wow, what a transformation! I have refinished a few pieces so I know what a ton of work that was. Love it.

Looks like it is in good condition, fancy woodwork for that times. Heirloom piece.
Lots of work involved with all the fret work and carvings, What was the price you charged.

Wow what a great job it looks totally different a new lease of life. It must have taken ages sanding it all back to raw wood. Awesome job and I hope you post pics of the other pieces when you have finished restoring them too.
Excellent stuff.

Outstanding! How did you get the old finish off? Have a couple of things that I need to refinish.

It’s a beautiful piece and you did a fine job of refinishing it.

I used a product by Benco to strip it down. It’s a semi paste product and works very nicely. You can hose the piece down to wash it completely off.

Great refinishing! It looks great as new. Show very well the beauty of the intricate carvings.
