I finished the desk I've been working on for a week! I also have some awesome
news. I was contacted by this awesome man who owns a HUGE studio in
New Braunfels and would like me to work with him on some furniture. I was
so touched and honored by his email. I went to go meet with him and was in awe
of what all he does. He is a master craftsman and has people from all over Texas
sending him furniture to fix and refinish. I have never seen so many different antiques
and furniture, some I've only seen in magazines. This man is living my dream, he works out
of an old antique red barn. I can't remember how big it is, but I think 5000 Sq Ft.
I could not believe how he rebuilds so many broken treasures and makes them
look like new! I mean some of this furniture is in pieces and he puts them back together
as if they were taken care of since day one. I will share more about this later this week,
as I want to get some pictures of the inside... Ok, here's the desk:
This desk is a very deep shade of red with carved cabriole legs. It has two glazes
which give it a warm and worn look. It measures 53 7/8 x 24. It also has a glass top
for protection and is painted on the back as well.
|I noticed the white on the side and thought "what the heck"|
it's carpet fresh from cleaning. There will be no carpet fresh on it
when its purchased. LOL
|The back of the desk.|
I'm working on an old antique kitchen island and hope to have it up by Tuesday. It is
one of my favorite pieces I've ever purchased.
