Wow…I’ve been really bad about writing on my blog. Not good. It just seems like when things get busy, it’s the first thing to go. Well that and laundry…but it’s summer, so who needs clean socks?
We are heading out for a family vacation, but I wanted to at least get some photos out of the latest custom job I finished. I’ve been working so hard to keep up with my shop, doing custom work has been difficult to squeeze in…but I’m really happy with the way this one turned out. I have another custom job that still needs my attention…but after a little R&R with the family this week, I will be ready to tackle that challenge when I get back!
I was really excited to get started on this particular custom project because I just know it is going to have such an amazing impact on this client’s dining room. This buffet is lucky enough to be a part of a 100 year old Seattle home and it’s new color will be the perfect complement to all of the beautiful wood floors, windows and other original wood details throughout this home.
Here is a photo of the buffet before:
A great piece, and the size and style worked well…but was lost a bit with all of the rest of the similar colored wood in the room.
After a color consultation, we decided on Duck Egg by Annie Sloan. Distressed to highlight the great details and finished with a layer of clear wax and dark wax, both by Miss Mustard Seed.
Here it is ready to go!
And a close up of the detail work…
This piece will get one final touch with some new knobs, but we will wait until it gets back to its home before making that decision.
