Restoration Hardware Chest Repurposed with Nutmeg Gel Stain

Refinished with Nutmeg Gel Stain by General Finishes. We love the lustrous finish when rubbing out the 2nd & 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated to produce a durable & beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish & are heavy-bodied, so they do not penetrate as deeply as liquid oilbase stains. Because of this, they are often less affected by
the condition of the wood & can help get an even look on difficult woods.

The final topcoat was 3 coats of General Finishes Endurovar Satin.
