I met a couple of great ladies several months ago. It all started with the nail head buffet which Libby bought. And then we moved on to a red buffet/console piece for Libby. After that I painted another office console piece for Libby's friend Lynne, and then... You see where this is going? These gals are my kind of people! They appreciate fine vintage furniture and love to see it brought back to life. Which brings me back to Lynne who called to see if I could paint 2 super nice pieces she found at an estate sale. Lucky Lynne! Both of these dressers are true stunners, though the one had been handled a bit roughly and needed some kwik wood to fill a rather giant missing leg part. I wish I were better at that.
Here they are now, all painted and stained anew!
While we were talking details for these two pieces Lynne spied another dresser that I was just prepping.
She decided to have it finished for her daughter. And Lynne went bold! Yeah! Coral. Wow!
I hope Lynne will send me a picture when she gets her daughter's room all put together with the new dresser!
Thanks Lynne! And Libby...well lets just say the story continues. ;-)
It's another busy week with a large custom project and I've been piddling with a very intricate piece in between orders. VERY vintage...
