Welcome to Friday’s Furniture Fix #40

Hope you are ready to see some beautiful pieces and learn about new techniques at Friday’s Furniture Fix.  Tonight, we have such a good sampling of ideas, products, and processes.  One process, I can say with all honesty, I’ve never seen before.

Because of the overwhelming positive response, we’ve decided to continue the slimmed down version of our posts.  This way, we can concentrate more on the furniture and how each piece was so beautifully restored.  So without further delay…….. 🙂

Please feel free to follow your hosts on social media.

We’d love to share with you there.

This week, four pieces were chosen.

This beautiful chest was restored by Jenny from Refresh Living by using two different colors of a chalky-type paint and leaving the top natural.  The three tones come together to restore this piece to its original elegance.

In the next feature, Greg from The Navage Patch completely replaces the veneer on the outside of this desk.  I must tell you, I have never seen such precision cutting in all of my blogging days.  He combines craftsmanship and artistry to create a most amazing desk.

Another interesting piece is this media console by Carrie of Thirty Eighth Street.  She found it under 40 years of dirt and grime, but was able to use elbow grease, chalk paint, and metallic cream to restore it to its beautiful self.  If you haven’t ever considered using metallic cream to lighten, brighten, or highlight a piece without really changing the color, this is a good post to review.

And the last feature for this week’s Friday’s Furniture Fix is this beautiful restoration by Kayla from Painted.  If you follow along week-by-week, you know we have a real thing for excellent technique and diversity in processes.  And tonight is no different.  Looking through the features tonight, it is obvious that we tried to choose pieces that are not only beautiful, but bring valuable information to the readers for their own DIY projects.  Well, for spray painting, Kayla is one of the best.  And she completely details her products and processes for this beautiful hutch so that we can all learn from her expertise.
