Being a collector of the Hey Wake blondes, I have a whole house full of them! Those of you who collect know when you find pieces on the secondary market, they are usually in less than stellar condition and come with a slew of finish issues and damage. I started refinishing pieces for myself. My very first piece I just restored the top of and had my friend and finisher at my job help with matching the finish to the aged original. It went well, but I knew I could not continue to rely on my friends at work. So I decided to move forward using the werefinish.com 2 step water based system to match the original stain. I love working with it. Here are some pieces I have done with it and there are many more yet to do in my house!
Stay tuned for more fabulous Hey Wake restores! As a collector, I am always adding pieces to my personal collection and sometimes I will look to sell off a piece to make room for something else. If you are a Hey Wake fan, please keep an eye on my shop! I just picked up a step end table to restore for myself and will be selling off a rarer pair of steps with a drawer on the base. They have some surface scratching and I would prefer to redo them, but I would consider selling as is!
