FROM PAINTED TO NATURAL

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Since we live in a DIY time especially here in the south, I thought I would post some pictures of some finished pieces for you. All of these photos have one thing in common and that is that they were all originally painted before I got to them. I don't have any before photos, so my apologies. But take my word for it that they all had layers of paint on them, especially the doors. Enjoy the photos while you fellowship with your friends and family. This year, remember to ponder the historic beginnings of Thanksgiving and why we celebrate it today. Thanks for reading!

THESE VINTAGE PINE DOORS WERE PAINTED WITH YEARS WORTH OF LEAD PAINT. WE STRIPPED THEM DOWN AND REFINISHED IN A STAIN TO MATCH THE HARDWOOD FLOORS IN MY CUSTOMER'S 1920'S HOME.


MY CUSTOMER WANTED THIS CHEST TO HAVE A RUSTIC-NATURAL LOOK.


ORIGINALLY GREEN, WE RESTORED THIS CEDAR CHEST BACK TO IT'S FORMER LOOK.

Restoring The Finish On Oak Cabinets

CAN YOU TELL WHICH CABINETS WERE RESTORED (TOP OR BOTTOM)?


IF YOU CANNOT TELL, THEN I CAN HELP YOU. IT'S THE BOTTOM CABINETS.

BELOW IS THE BEFORE. NOTICE HOW THE WATER HAD WASHED AWAY THE STAIN.


 THIS WAS THE CABINETS STRIPPED.



IF THIS IS YOUR CURRENT PROBLEM WITH YOUR KITCHEN CABINETS, GIVE ME A CALL AND WE CAN TALK ABOUT A SOLUTION. THANKS FOR READING.

ALL MOVED IN AND READY FOR YOU!

On my last post I informed everyone that I was moving my shop to Eads, which is roughly 15 minutes from my old shop. I am all moved in and ready to go! Looking forward to meeting new customers and of course all of my repeat customers. Here are some pictures of my shop. The spray booth was designed by myself and my good friend Jason Jarvis of Jarvis Woodworks in Eads, TN. Jason did all the building of the booth and we installed it together. Thanks for looking!
