Attention all those who hate oak. Susan was commissioned to refinish this vintage chest. Its hardware had long been replaced and its keyhole covers were missing completely. Susan's client wanted the chest to look "timeless and neutral." Did that mean painting it white? Cream? Black?  Nope. That meant stripping the drawers, staining them with General Finishes Java and painting the rest in GF's Lamp Black Milk Paint* to highlight the gorgeous oak (yeah, I said it, gorgeous OAK) drawers. New, appropriate hardware and keyhole covers were added to complete the chest's makeover. Susan made the piece over so that the client could use the piece with the flourish on top....
