Credenza refinish, Black Friday/Small Biz Sat

IMG_9686.JPG

I am in the final week of my tax prep class and so excited to finish up!  I have a final next Monday which I need to score 80 or better on. 🙏🏻 Hopefully this will open me up for some hours next spring.  I love what I do here but it does not pay my bills.  🤷‍♂️ So until that happens I have to keep working a plan B. Meanwhile, I am thinking about Black Friday and Small Biz Saturday.  I will have some great stocking stuffers from Primitives by Kathy out at my retail space priced to move. I am doing $6 ea and pick 4 for $20.  These are new gifts from my wholesaler in packaging with tags, etc.  they retail for double this price so come shop with me!  I hope to spend some time hanging out at the mall too.  Please come take a look at the Broyhill set if you are looking for a mid mod dining room. I just redid the top of the credenza too.  I am not so sure I can squeeze that in but I left a flier on the table about it.  Here are some pics

Very pleased with the color match!  I am priced well under retail on this collectible Broyhill set. I would love to find it a home for the holidays!

I wish I could feature more stuff out here but alas, I only have a small space.  Please review my online shops.  If you want to see anything let me know and I will try to leave it out there for you or meet you so you can see it.

Just split up this chair set by selling off 2 of the black chairs.  I am now offering in sets of 2, black or natural finish.  If you want all 4 I will split shipping.  These can go Greyhound 2 per box.

Another interesting item available is this great antique chest.  My son used it as a toy chest and we made some modifications including fixed hinges that keep the top open all the time, plastic trim over the metal edge. The lock is broken so no chance of locking a tiny person inside and we are leaving a mat in the bottom.  Great toy storage for a waiting room or play room. The paint is durable and was redone before we bought it 13 years ago or so.  It is a neat piece and needs a new home.    Etsy shop sales ENDS NOV 15th 11:00 pm EST! SHOP NOW AND SAVE ON MOST ITEMS!

Big buy. DIY PRICED.

I just assisted in a local estate clean out and took possession of a bedroom full of Heywood Wakefield plus a Broyhill Saga dining room.  This stuff all needs some refinishing work and I am not in the position to get that done.  These items are in the raw and I am selling wholesale so you can do the work and get in this stuff at rock bottom prices.  Sure, if you want to pay me to get it done I would gladly restore to order but I do not typically buy for wholesale and in this case, I can price things low because of my great buy!  These are moving fast so please reach out immediately if you are interested in something.  I also have on eBay at higher price.  I am doing local pickup only. If you are out of the area and want shipping I can arrange for you but I cannot pack.  I can deliver in my immediate region....BERKS, LEHIGH, LANCASTER, ETC.  Any further I wil tack on a nominal delivery fee.  Ok I guess that’s the terms so on to the goods!  

 

Broyhill Saga dining table with 3 side chairs, 1 arm chair plus 1 table leaf. Table top could use refinish, chairs too. Seats to be recovered. Beautiful set $500

Weekend hustle. Pics of the new couch.

I had a great weekend starting off with picking up the pink velvet couch.  Wow is it stunning!  Wanted to share pics of it cleaned up and it is AVAILABLE.   Listing is up on ETSY and coming soon to Chairish.

I so love the feather cushion!  This piece was restored in the not so distant past.  Everything is in amazing shape including the feather insert.

I won these French made pillows that I thought would be a perfect match! They also have down inserts.

After a cleaning and refreshing of the wood, these carvings really shine! This foot design is known as a lion paw or hairy paw. The shell motif was less common in American reproductions in the early part of the 20th Century.  I found no clues on it’s maker and most pieces from this era are not as elaborate as this piece.  The upholstery redo is fantastic work.

The left side eagle has been repaired and failed so I will be tending to that. Otherwise, only issues are some light stains on the fabric which are pretty minor.

Pieces this great really do not turn up that often and I will say after extensively searching for another, there are some damn boring Chippendale reproductions out there!!!! The carvings not only make this piece, the shape does.  As you can see the camel hump is less pronounced and the flared ends really create a nice almost exotic look.  Not every Chippendale is the same and this one has everything going for it.  The pink velvet makes it very pertinent to today’s hot colors and textures and it will be timeless while adding class and elegance to your space.  Whether you have a Victorian home or a craftsman style bungalow, this piece will fit in with your eclectic look.  

Please note if you are local to me, reach out for a cash price if you buy direct!!!

Next up, source to order fun.  

I always am hunting for pieces for clients and sometimes it takes longer than others.  I found one long dresser last year and placed it with the first person on my list.  I also had another waiting and this weekend I found a beauty!  

Beautiful walnut veneer 9 drawer chest reminiscent of the Broyhill Sculptra line but unmarked and still unidentified.  Recessed pulls on center drawers and beautiful gold and black filigree pulls on the ends.

I brought it home and cleaned it up while reporting to my client details on condition and concerns.  There was only one area with some veneer chipping so we discussed that and made a plan.  I did some work blending in the area and it really helped. Delivered 24 hours later! If you are searching for a special piece, reach out with details and I will try to help you find it! 

Adding some stain to darken the area and then adding a clear coat to protect and seal helped this area blend in.

After the touch up and not so much attention is drawn to the area.

I was thrilled to visit my friends and clients who had me restore a pair of Heywood Wakefield dining chairs for them a few years ago.  It’s always great to visit my babies!  Plus I got to meet their adorable pups, Elvis and Audrey! So happy I could hook them up with this dreamy piece! 

The orange convertible couch is getting picked up tonight and heading to Delaware.  Things are on the move!  My etsy store will remain 10% off through the end of the month and they will be advertising sales etsywide.

Thanks for reading!!!!  Have a great week!
