I had a couple of DT and GW finials that needed a little something, and so I finally found the time to give them a little makeover. My favorite weapon of choice is always my Min-Wax Walnut Stain.
Love the texture of this finial, however it really is pretty bland and ugly.
A good coat of stain and it is already looking better.
I took a soft cloth and buffed a lot of it off and I really like the way it shows the texture of the piece.
This one has beautiful carving details, but the colors are just a little washed out.
Just a few highlights here and there with the stain, and all of the character of the piece jumps out.
I paired these two with another DT finial and they look fabulous. The texture of each one is so different from the others, so they make a great compliment to each other.
Don't you love it when just a little tweaking creates a whole new piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.
