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.
