So we’ve been busy enjoying our new house, and haven’t been doing a lot of furniture painting this summer. However, Matt did build me a potting bench out of reclaimed wood, complete with a custom hand painted sign. 🙂
This old rocking chair was in need of help. The joints were creaky, the finish was marred and the upholstery was dated. Luckily the owner had a great style already in mind, and brought us the fabric she liked and requested white paint with a lightly distressed finish. After repairing the woodwork, sanding, painting, and reupholstering, it turned out beautifully.
For Nigel’s birthday I wanted to give him something handmade and special. This box I made from Black Walnut, Maple, and Cherry, with a cedar lining. It features a hinged lid, movable tray and a “secret” compartment. The day after his birthday, it was already filled with important things like pocket change (undoubtedly stolen from my jar), his wallet, a couple photos, and bubble gum.
This magnificent old church window frame had been banged about during transportation, leaving gouges and uneven stain. Matt repaired it, re-stained it, and mounted it using french cleats. It turned out beautifully.
