RECYCLING AT ITS BEST






This is the latest refinishing project to come out of the henhouse nest. A local designer had his client’s family piece refinished to use as a vanity in their fabulous new bathroom. The drawers were completely rebuilt to accommodate the plumbing, with nice new compartments for storage. We stripped off the original paint right down to the wood and then layered on some new colour and stain to make the finish really juicy. We then did a crackle finish to make this antique dresser look as though this was the original finish. Pretty nifty huh?! Hardware outfitted by Lee Valley.

A PANEL FOR YOUR THOUGHTS



This amazing antique wall panel comes from Eastern Europe and is oh so pretty! It is in amazing condition, with the original paint, nice patina and preserved under a beeswax finish. This panel would work in a variety of spaces around the home but we think it would work particularly yummy as headboard for a king or queen size bed. It would also work swell as a divider for a room or converted into a sliding door on a track.
