Refinished Table and Chairs.....

This was for one of my previous clients who 
loved our work from what we did for them before.  
She wanted her dining table and chairs set refinished, not painted.
So here is the before...the table has a slide in leaf.

It was darker and scratched.
The previous finish was a gel stain, so when
it was banged into which will happen over
time, it showed white wood and chipped.

With gel stain it lays over the wood, stain penetrates 
into the wood which stains it.  So we couldn't get it to the exact
dark color like this.  The wood was very close together also much 
harder to take stain.
I had to use 3 different colors of stain to get it even
somewhat close to the previous finish.

We stripped it all down.

Then I went to work to get it to look like this below....

Added a poly to the top.  Multiple layer of it on top 
for extra protection.  

Added poly to all the chairs and base of table also.

She loved it!  It actually matched exactly with her floor color.
That was awesome!

Dresser Set Painted with Farrow & Ball.......

A new client contacted us for a dresser set she wanted custom
painted in a special paint with a specific color.
This could not be matched 100% to any other paint.
Which is why she wanted this particular brand.
With this paint, it's very tricky.  You can only use their
primer, so I couldn't use my usual primer with 
this particular paint.
Here is the before, forgot to take the picture of
the mirror.

Had a lot of ridges.....very rough.  We sanded it all down though.

This is the paint.

Primed it and then painted it all.  She wanted the color
Mahogany, which is a brown color with a slight red tint.

Next, added a polycrylic finish to it.

She wanted the handles in a brushed nickel.
So we stripped the hardware and custom
painted them.

Here is the mirror we did also.

She loved it!  Very satisfied client.
