Are these not the cutest antique little chairs you have ever seen? Built by Phoenix Chair Company many many years ago, they found their way to me from my clients family barn in New Mexico. She just messaged me saying they found two more that will need to be done.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Well-Bred Brown.
Do you recall yesterday’s custom piece, Three-Piece Computer Desk? To complete my clients home office he wanted his generic veneer office desk top to look as good as his other pieces! When dealing with veneer painting it can leave the piece to look very dull and a solid boring pile of yuck especially on a desk top. There isn’t wood grain, texture or detail.
To change things up I used two colors, the same ones on his other office pieces to tie everything together. Now once what was a simple plain top now has character!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Well-Bred Brown and dry brushed with Agreeable Gray.
We can’t help but look around for a piece of furniture that is not only beneficial to what we need to use it for but stylish in every way to complete our space. Our homes reflect who we are. It says a little something about you to your guest.
As my client shopped around looking for that perfect piece to complete her husbands home office they keep finding themselves saying something that I hear all too often, “everything seems expensive and cheaply made now-a-days”. When they went home defeated they looked at what they already had and realized two things: Not only did they pay good money many years ago for their current piece of furniture, but its solid wood made to last. This is where I come in! It’s cheaper to have something you already own, refinished to match your decor. Especially when you find yourself moving into a new home, such as my client is, and changing up the theme, colors and decor.
Heavy duty, solid wood, three-piece computer desk and hutch shelves refinished in Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. We replaced the hardware with bronzed pull handles making this piece more modern. Up next is a huge veneer desk top that will go into this same office space. Using the same colors but with a different technique.
