Ever take on a project and you feel like your client has more faith in you, then you do towards your own limits? Talk about stress. I KNEW I could, it was just… NEW territory. Which is scary, nervracking and completely intimidating.
My client has an old gorgeous dining set that was past down from her mother. I saw the potential, don’t get me wrong! But the question for me was, “how in the hell am I going to do this?”.
She gave me one of her chairs and said, I want to see what you can do. This transformation is by far one of my favorites. Perhaps its because I literally shed tears, blood and sweat working on it. The reward was greatly satisfying.
My clients chair had the wicker back which completely dated it. However, her bones were glorious!
I first started out by removing the wicker from the backing. We didn’t want it, we wanted a cushion to replace that area. I sanded it back and cut out wood that would replace this area.
Primed, painted and glazed. I could do this in my sleep. It wasn’t until the reupholstering and the ‘How’ of it all that had me questioning my abilities.
Next, I added batting on the back (where your back will relax at). I pulled the fabric over and started stapling like a crazy women. Finalizing the edge with cord gives a professional appearance.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and Glazed in Cyberspace. Matching the buffet I recently finished. My client picked out a cream and grey damask fabric from Joanns. A dark grey cord to match and to finish her off!
Family heirlooms are my jam! I say this often, and I don’t get tired of saying it over and over again; I KNOW how important these pieces are to you and your family. So not only do I take extra care in these family pieces, but I do pride myself on making them last for more generations to come.
My client wanted me to do a finish that would match an existing piece in her home that will share the space with her mothers hutch. She kept all glass shelves at her home along with the glass decorative door inserts. Check out the before picture to get an idea of what this piece will look like with those lovely add on’s installed back on!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Pure White and distressed heavily. I went into certain spots and did a white wash to lessen the wood showing through. Im excited for this piece and to do more techniques like it in the future! Hardware is left original and cleaned up.
