Beauty in the beast

This chair is a piece of art!


It belongs to a relative and unfortunately for me,
she wants it back.



I can't stop touching the exquisite lions.


The patina on the arms from years of use is perfect.


I'm now on a mission to get a chair just like this!

Pedestal table

Look at what I scored at an auction today!


Isn't it beautiful?! 


The base and legs are substantial
... yet still have great lines.


Check out the paint ... it has that lovely ripple effect going on but it's flaking off easily so it's going to have to be sanded down.



The pedestal on the left and the tabletop need to be screwed back down and
then there is the missing drawer on the one side but all of that is fixable.
I'm even playing with the idea of replacing the pedestals with longer ones to
turn this into counter height.


I wish I could work on this right away but it will have to wait a while.
First up is a pair of chairs, a pair of window cornices,
a bimini cover and then another chair.

Corner Chair

I'm really liking how it turned out.
Simple & Clean


The perfect addition to any corner


BTW ... I don't have a Before photo to show ... but it looked similar to this photo:
dark wood 
 with a broken caned seat:
