I had fun with this set, a wonderful client to work with, and love that she got “permission” to paint!! It’s her grandmother’s and she has had it for a while and her mother gave her the go ahead on painting!!
This piece is one that we definitely had to clean and set out in the sun with dryer sheets and let it air out. It had been in her grandmothers home for years with smoke. And so we gave it a good cleaning with TSP. I sprayed the drawers inside with clorox and water and let it bake in the sun. Then washed with a soapy water and put dryer sheets inside it. I used a clear shellac to prime so we could distress back a bit on all of the details. It turned out gorgeous!!
Please excuse the hue on the pictures it was just before dusk and the awning on the workshop added to the shade.
Thank you for stopping in!!!
