Wordless Wednesday – Happy Clients Make Me Happy

It is bittersweet to work like crazy on a piece, to put your heart and soul into it… from imagining a concept, to painting it, to sweating in the heat to buff out a waxy glow, to then finally selling it to someone that you hope will appreciate the work that went into it. I have found that perfect bliss by selling my pieces on Etsy and am happy beyond words that the pieces I have passionately refinished find happy new homes through my humble Etsy Shop! On this wordless Wednesday I am grateful for happy clients because they make the furniture refinishing process a joy!!! :D

Garage Sale Antique Bench Reupholster

Hi there! Check out this antique bench I found at a garage sale! All it needed was a little love (and by love, I mean removal of 4 layers of dingy fabric and applying a fresh coat of wax) & some updated material in order to make it beautiful again! This piece had good bones, so it was definitely worth the time… especially since it only took an hour to reupholster & it’s new fabric was scrap from a previous dining chair refinish, making the total cost of this piece $5.33 including staples! Now my little guys have a perfect spot to put their shoes on in the morning!

The before & after of this lovely piece…
