Happy Customer

Another happy customer. I am so relieved. I guess I am to hard on myself. For some reason I always think the piece I am working on could have looked better. Like they say we are our own worst critic. The great thing about this line of work is that when I do complete the piece and the customer comes to pick it up the expression on there face is implanted in my mind forever. I love what I do and I hope business this summer is great. I have been researching blogs on furniture refinishing and I am just blown away by the talent that most of these women have. My hat goes off to these women who have never had professional training in the refinish business and are turning these pieces of furniture into art work. Very impressed!

Changing Table and Dresser

I took the day off work to work on some furniture. Me and my oldest son Divani started early and worked hard. Here is a picture of Divani doing some of the harder work, sanding. He is only 8 and is a pro already. This is the changing table and dresser finished. I had a hard time with the top of the dresser. I had to wipe down with grease remover, sand and then paint. I had to do this over and over. I could not get rid of the fish eyes. Finally it looks good. Now I have to start on the crib, this will be the last piece to complete this job. My friends baby is due in March and I am pushing it close. Time to work hard. Thank you ladies for following me. God bless you all.
