For Marcene

Marcene, a friend and co-worker of my mother-in-law, 
asked if we would paint this sewing cabinet and step stool for her.  Both pieces have sentimental value, but needed sprucing up to work in her home.  

Sewing Cabinet.  Before.  

Step Stool.  Before.  

Step Stool.  After.  

This piece has layers of paint on it.  It was partially stripped, but still had lots of layers and chunks of paint.  We sanded it down, painted it old white.  
Distressed it.  Then distressed it again to bring out the layers underneath.  We added a darker wax to age it, then topped it off with a whitish wax .  
It has a great patina and we hope Marcene likes it.  

Sewing Table.  After.  

This piece was painted old white, distressed quite heavily and sealed with wax. We painted the hardware an antique bronze.  It looks great.  This finish is so nice and it looks like its ready for another fifty years of sewing...or as a bedside table.  

Thanks Marcene!  We appreciated the opportunity to work on these pieces.
