The armoire I have been so worried about is finally done and will be delivered this morning! I hope the family she's going back to loves her.......it makes me so nervous to do these custom refinishing pieces! I love it but it also just makes me cringe; Will it be everything they hoped? Should I have used poly? Should I have chosen a different stain? Should I have put 1 more coat or 1 less coat of stain.......AAARGH!
This beauty was sitting in my client's garage for 5 years. She had incredibly beautiful bones but was in a sad little state of affairs. Her top was warped, cracked, and just not working anymore. Every bit of wood was dry and the hardware was all a little rusty. I stripped, sanded, conditioned, stained, and conditioned some more. I replaced her top, found a key for the lock....because everything 11 year old girl needs a special place to lock away a few things especially when her 8 year old brother is around.....and waxed until I just can't wax her again right now. And I'm still just a little worried about whether they will love it or not!!!
I know I really need to work on my photography skills too because the after pictures just don't do it justice but......here she is!!!!
|My little helper really wanted to be in every picture!|
I'm going to load her up now and go deliver! Have a great day and wish me luck!
