The busiest time of the year for so many reasons and I finally feel like I'm on the home run with so many projects taking up room in my studio, shed and shop....This beauty was a cherry red and the table is a hardwood....beautiful grain...and lots of chippy paint on the chairs. It belonged to one family since the 1950's and no one wanted it when grandma had to go to a nursing home. 3 generations didn't want it and they entrusted it to me ....so with that in mind I held onto it with the desire to sand it all back etc etc....and 2 years later, dealing withj trigger finger, carpal tunnel and recently periorbital shingles and about to become a grandparent myself...I had to do something with it and it had to be done because 2022 I was not having it hang around again...

So I kept it chippy and embraced the imperfections....totally scaled back the chippy red paint/varnish then cleaned and cleaned again.

A colour mix of greens sitting in the studio..all chalk based paints....painted 2 coats on each chair and table legs ....adding texture fizz and crackle to the legs and more of the chippy with sanding .. when I was happy I added dark antique Glaze wiping so it looked grungy....and finally sealed all chairs and table legs with a clear matt sealer. (Artisan)

The table top was sanded to raw and hemp oil applied to the top. It has brought to life all that beautiful grain and colours you can see. ....all this imperfection is not for everyone. The brief was to bring out the beauty that was and show the life it lived with the family of 6. Those children now in their 60's and grown children of their own with the possibilities of grand babies.....thus is the cycle of life as we know it and this is the cycle for this beauty ....please meet 'Suthers' ...with his Irish heritage (namesake) and hues of green. He will be looking for a family wishing to set up a farmhouse chic establishment and embrace his story and quality of imperfections.

I love that I'm given such opportunity to do this to furniture otherwisw heading to the dump and landfill...and more so to breathe new life to an old piece that will create new history ...
