The State of the Workshop

Pin It

It might APPEAR that I have been idle for a whole stinkin' month, but I assure you that is not the case!  Things shift and grind and move around and get painted and delivered and more brought in.  My world goes round and round!  Here's proof!
The Mr.'s gift of a heater out here has kept me purring right along throughout the frigid Winter.  I need to show you a photo of the mondo heater sometime.  It looks like a giant oven coil.  Should I worry?

Anyway, here are a couple of custom finishes from the past month.
This is a huge table top with a couple of prayers stenciled on.  We were not going to be able to recover the stained finish so my client wanted a sage green (ASCP Chateau Gray) top with two of their favorite family meal time prayers.  What a cool idea!  The base is black and it looks fabulous again now.

I also have worked on, and am finishing up 7 pieces that I call PAX.  That's because I started to work over all these pieces when Winter Storm Pax was making his way across the country and leaving another polar vortex in his wake.  Thanks Pax...
These cottage styled 1940-1950's pieces had spent many, many years in a storage building in Florida heat and humidity.  So there were many little things to repair and re glue.  This is piece #5.  All will be painted in ASCP Pure White with very little distressing.  Nice and clean for a new season in their life.  I just love making the old tired pieces look fresh again!  Still working on a bed with a lot of repair work and a mirror that was almost forgotten.

And because the pollen is flying and evidently I should be better about masking up when I sand down furniture tops, I have another sinus infection that is making it hard to get much done.  New meds should be just the trick and I'll be back to my old self soon!  Watch for a couple more reveals this week.  I might even get back into the swing of blogging again.

Have a beautiful week!
