Client who we did the previous post for which
was the navy french dresser/nightstand set,
wanted us to do her antique
dining set also.
Before photos below.
Small side buffet.
Top of buffet was damaged.
All 6 chairs.
Stripped the top side buffet.
Stripped the 3 leaves for the table.
Stripped table top.
She wanted the leaves and table refinished because it
had water rings/stains.
She wanted my opinions on some designs for the look.
She knew she wanted the annie sloan
old white antiqued look I've done before.
She fell in love with the antique set we
had previously done for her friend (our previous client).
Which was the old white antiqued look.
But, she was on a budget from Harvey.
She intentionally wanted everything refinished
and stained. Although, we don't do that anymore
and it would be very expensive.
I suggested painting only the outside of the glass hutch
and cleaning up/sealing the inside.
Then, I suggested we paint the whole
side buffet to bring in more
of the old white look.
We refinished the table top/leaves though as they where
Sealed them all with 5 coats of sealer.
All three leaves refinished and looking beautiful.
Chairs we cleaned up and sealed them all.
Keeping more of the wood
in the mix instead of painting the chairs
would really bring everything together.
Especially for the design of the pieces.
She provided her new fabric and we upholstered
She was very pleased with the outcome!
I was too.
