Pyrex, End tables, dining chairs and fabric sample update.

First off I am heading down to Baltimore area this Saturday for the annual Mid Atlantic Pyrex Collectors Swapaganza!  I just uploaded a bunch of pics of what I am packing and everything is up for reserve.  If you are coming, please check my Facebook page album at Facebook.com/madformodmalissa and comment on anything you'd like reserved.  I am packing all reserves for travel. The event is closed so if you missed out this year, be sure to sure to join the Mid Atlantic Pyrex Collectors Facebook group!  I will share pics and stories in my next write up!  

Fresh Restores!  New Listings!

I have been banging out the projects in the last few weeks.  All are ready to ship and the final few chairish listings should be live in the next 24 hours. 

Meet the Heywood Wakefield tables! 

A total of 5 end tables have been totally restored to their former glory. Sanded and stripped if needed, new stain and layers of tinted top coat to replicate that awesome opaque finish us Hey Wake fans love.  Since I had 4 of the same step end tables, I did a pair in each of the popular finishes, champagne and wheat.  They look awesome!  

New to Heywood?  Here is a side by side comparison of the coveted finishes, champagne on the left with it's pink undertones and wheat on the right which has yellow undertones.  Both darken with age so if you find an unmarked piece, it may be hard to determine on sight.  When you look underneath you can usually find evidence of these hues.

I also did a great corner table! This would be placed between 2 pieces of a sectional.  A real cool table if it fits your configuration. It is bigger that it appears. It is done in champagne.

Here is a before pic and how cool it can look with the right couch! 

Next, I got the Italian ladderbacks finished.  They are beautiful!  The black chairs received all new seagrass seats and a new clear coat to protect that chippy finish that is the perfect age look if you like that style! These will be awesome in a farmhouse or traditional setting or those who like to mix up your Mod with more traditional looks.  They are very whimsical in design and just make me smile.  I like the look with the natural chairs at the ends!  All of these items can be Bus shipped to your nearest Greyhound station very reasonably! I do all the work! You show up when they call you to get them.  I will help you through, just reach out!

Last update! Frank Lloyd Wright samples will arrive Friday! I hope to do a big reveal!  Maybe I will go live on Facebook.  Stay tuned to my social media!  Important....i am shopping for things that will work for chair recovering and since this fabric is so expensive, I cannot get a big selection.  I will sell 1/4 and 1/2 yard cuts of what I get for myself but if you see something you want, speak up right away so I can work with you on ordering.  I will need to clarify minimums, etc.  There are limited quantities available so would like to submit my order asap. You can only purchase this fabric through an interior designer, architect or someone like me with a trade account! I will ship to your for free.  50% deposit due when my order is finalized, balance due after I receive and send pics but prior to shipping/delivery. These fabrics are $150-300/yard.  There are linen, velvet, sheers and trim.  Can't wait to inspect these fine fabrics!

i am off through a busy weekend of pyrex, band performances (2 gigs on Sunday) and sports!  have a great week everyone!
