Cole Haan Showroom Floor Damage

The showroom floor had the companies name blocked out in tape. When they removed the tape, the coating on the floor came up with it. Instead of having to refinish the whole floor, I told them that I could stain in the damage to match completely.

It took a while to get the right match. The original finish is a three part process, and was quite a challenge.

There is a darker layer under a lighter layer.

A bit of stress, and a stiff back, but done at the end of the day.

Ebonized/Lacquered Console Table

This week at the studio, I received a mid century console that had a thick faux parchment covered finish. I stripped it, and put about 12 coats of tinted black water-based pre-catalyzed lacquer on it, and then buffed it out. You can definitely see your nose hairs in it. And the bottom would make an excellent skate board park for mice.

 
 
 

Reeded Mirrors

Reeded mirrors come in and out of the studio for restoration quite often.   I was asked, by one client, to make a reproduction reeded mirror, so that it could be custom sized.  You can also see the sample in my sample category.  The moulding is a traditional 3 1/4" width, and has 6 reeds.  It can be ordered in any custom size, and can be fitted with new, or antiqued glass.
