Duncan Phyfe Dining Table Repair & Refinish for the McBrayer Family

Duncan Phyfe Dining Table Repair & Refinish for the McBrayer Family

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Today we sharing a stunning repair/refinish of a GORGEOUS Duncan Phyfe dining table that we recently refinished for the McBrayer family. Mrs. McBrayer initially contacted us because their dining room table was almost unusable due to the poor condition of the legs and feet, and was in disparate need of a little TLC. They were splitting and separating because of the age of the table. You see, this beauty was a family heirloom that Mrs. McBrayer’s grandmother passed down to her. So, she was not planning on getting rid of it any time soon. This meant that it was imperative that it was fixed as soon as possible before the extent of the damage WORSENED.

We began by fully stripping, sanding, and cleaning the entire table. Once we had that completed, we were able to get to work on our repairs. This part was the most TEDIOUS because we had to be extremely GENTLE because the wood was very DELICATE while CAUTIOUSLY removed the legs and all of the old glue. Also several legs were broken, and the pillar holding each was cracked and separating as well. Continue reading

Louisiana Saturday Night!

Louisiana Saturday Night!

It’s a Louisiana Saturday Night over here, Y’all! And tonight we are cooking some Eggplant Parmesan (MY FAV!) with some fresh eggplants just picked from the garden!

They will go well with the 500 lbs of pasta I accidentally cooked earlier. HEHE! 😉

spaghetti

Every. Single. Time.

Am I the ONLY one who does this? I always cook enough pasta to feed approximately 125 people and I DON’T KNOW WHY! Maybe it’s just my Italian roots coming to the surface. 🙂

What’s on the menu in your home tonight?

Sneaky Peek: New Farmhouse Dining Set

Sneaky Peek: New Farmhouse Dining Set

Happy Saturday, Friends! Check out who is finally starting to feel better! He has been going STIR CRAZY while recouping from his most recent procedures, and has been itching to get BACK IN THE SADDLE! Today, we are working on sanding, and preparing this newly finished table top on a brand new 9 foot farmhouse dining table! Come to think of it, this may be the LONGEST table we have built to date! 

This top will soon get a coat of GORGEOUS Weathered Gray stain! Which, we are extra excited about because we haven’t had the opportunity to do this particular color on a dining table top before. SO… I guess you could say there are a lot of firsts going on around here today. And they are ALL GOOD THINGS! 

We can’t wait to share our finished product with all of you. So, be sure to come back and check out pictures of our soon to be completed dining set! In the meantime, have a BLESSED weekend! 🙂

Pantry Swing Door And Matching Plaque

Pantry Swing Door And Matching Plaque

Hi Friends and Happy Friday! Here is a super fun refinish and custom build that we recently completed for our awesome clients, the Stein family! They are building a fabulous new home, and had a really COOL IDEA for their pantry door. They wanted a paneled, and paned swing door with a matching scrollwork plaque to hang above. And as for the finish, they wanted everything to match the gray theme that they have throughout their home, but with a really cool aged/distressed feel. The only problem was…. THEY NEEDED TO FIND A DOOR! Continue reading
