Do you seal your pieces?

Do you seal your pieces?

Absolutely every item that leaves my shop is sealed with 2-5 coats of high performance top coat.

Do you repair broken furniture?

Do you repair broken furniture?

No. Think of my services as cosmetic. Aside from minor things like filling in holes in drawers to place new hardware and sometimes replacing drawer runners/glides I do not repair broken/split/damaged areas in your items and I inspect my own inventory prior to selling to insure there isn’t any structural damage.

What kind of paint do you use?

What kind of paint do you use?

The main brand I use is General Finishes Milk Paints, gel stains and high performance top coats. For artistic and specialty finishes I use various products depending on what look I’m trying to achieve.

Do you strip the furniture prior to painting?

Do you strip the furniture prior to painting?

If I am applying a new stain (table tops ONLY) I do strip the tops. Otherwise I stay away from harsh chemical stripping agents. I do not offer full restoration services meaning if you want the entire piece stripped and stained then I’m not your girl. If you have a look through my pictures you’ll see that I only stain table tops. I sand prior to painting but not to raw wood.
