Unique Antique

Standard

What a beautiful winter day…wait. Spring day? This snow has got me confused, but I did take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the snow yesterday. Perhaps I was taking it all in and hoping at the same time it would be the last snow of the season. I am ready for some warmer weather!

The past few weeks I have been working on this beautiful drop leaf dining room table. Beneath all of the wear and tear, it was a beautiful antique piece that could be saved.

Off to sand I went. I sanded, and sanded, and sanded some more. I finally got all of those scratched out of the tabe so I could start fresh.

Because of the age of the piece, matching the stain exactly was a bit tricky. I got to mixing and came up with a very, VERY close match (in my opinion at least).

Reclaimed Coffee Table

Standard

It is finally done! I have been waiting and waiting to share with you Columbus Furniture Revival’s first custom made coffee table! After meeting with our client, we came up with an idea of having 3 pieces of wood as the table top, and the legs would be the same wood as the top on an angle.

After we had the idea, it was off to Capital City Millwork to look for wood. Wow! This has quickly become one of my favorite places in Columbus. Someone helped me find the perfect wood that would make my vision come to life.

Off to work I went. I wish that I had taken pictures of the process, but Carl and I got so into it that pictures slipped my mind. We came up with a plan and surprisingly it all worked out EXACTLY how we thought it would. We kept one side “live” (the natural shape of the wood) to add extra character.

We had decided on doing a grey white wash. The first time around it was a bit too white so we went a bit darker.
