Here you will see just a few examples of woodwork that I have lovingly restored over the years. Some are treasured heirlooms - some have been found, discarded and abandoned pieces I could still see the beauty within.
Bathroom Cabinet Restoration
In The Beginning
I was asked to restore a simple bathroom cabinet ... of great sentimental value. Once I had begun stripping it, I found it had acquired about 7 coats of different coloured paint in its lifetime.
In The End
And after a gallon of paint stripper and a good deal of sanding, I suggested the natural beauty of the wood underneath all that old paint be allowed to shine through. So it was decided that a few coats of good ol' yacht varnish...
... and some new brass hinges were exactly what this beauty needed. The interior needed some love as well and I felt that it should be in striking contrast to the natural woodgrain visible outside. I may have dubbed it The Coconut after a striking white interior completed it all.
