Stripping & Refinishing Painted Ceiling Beams

This was a recent job that was completed on-site. The customer wanted her three ceiling beams to be stripped and refinished in a stain to match her floors. We removed the old trim on each side and replaced with new, finishing it to match the beams.

MY FESTOOL "STRIPPING" SANDER HAD TO BE USED TO TAKE THE BEAMS BACK DOWN TO RAW WOOD SINCE THERE WERE TWO LAYERS OF PAINT. THIS WAS USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH MY FESTOOL DUST COLLECTOR SO PAINT DUST WOULD NOT ESCAPE INTO THE AIR.
STRIPPED

AFTER: BEAMS WERE REFINISHED IN AMERICAN WALNUT WITH A COAT OF SATIN CLEAR

One-Of-A-Kind Cupboard

I love one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, especially when they are functional. This cupboard was built using a mix of reclaimed and new wood. I also used a reclaimed door that I found for the front. The purpose of the finish was to give it a time worn, rustic appeal. I would like to thank Mr. Frank Lawrence for the help on this one. He did a beautiful job crafting the cupboard box and fitting the door based on my specifications. If your interested in a custom built piece like this, give me a call with your ideas. I can also refinish furniture to look like this, so give me a call if your wanting your piece to have a rustic/vintage look.

BEFORE: RAW AND READY FOR FINISHING!

RECLAIMED DOOR


AFTER: IN IT'S RESTING PLACE

PLENTY OF SPACE, WITH ROOM TO SPARE
I USED A GRAY GLAZE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE COLORED DYE SO IT WOULD HAVE AN OXIDIZED, WORN LOOK.
