Antique Chest of Drawers - Empire Furniture
It’s An Art

It’s more than just painting furniture…

We like to create pieces of art! Quality, solid wood pieces are what we look for when we hunt for treasures to renew. Each piece is unique and inspired by our love for color, interior decorating and beautifying our surroundings. Usually a “vision” for the piece comes from the very minute we spot a potential piece. Then we inspect, clean and repair (if necessary) each piece to prepare it for it’s transformation. This can include sanding down, gluing and or sealing it with shellac. Now it’s ready for a gorgeous color of either Chalk Finish Paint or Miss Mustard Seed’s┬áMilk Paint. One or two layers of paint is painted on by hand, depending on what look we are trying to achieve. The distressing technique follows after which it is waxed and buffed as the final protective layer. Sometimes we create more definition with dark and other colored waxes and glazes too.

Due to the age and nature of Vintage used furniture, some imperfections may exist. We incorporate imperfections into the distressed finish, for a fabulous end result.
