To Make A New Appearance, To Be Refurbished.

To be refurbished is to be refreshed, made clean and complete in appearance. Who does not like that? Often is the business of taking a plain old room and adding new life to it. Creating an environment of effect, whether relaxing or festive and even nostalgic we like to have inspiration in our lives. Then finding a nice piece of furniture or decor and changing the appearance to a new or different style than what it has been accustom to in the past. Recycling the pieces we have at home from a style goes by to more contemporary designs.

An antique sideboard is a desirable and fashionable accessory, and finely styled versions from the late-18th or early-19th centuries are the most sought-after and most costly. Multipurpose a sideboard is an item of furniture traditionally used in the dining room for serving food. It usually consists of a set of cabinets, or cupboards, and one or more drawers, all topped by a flat display surface for conveniently holding selected devices. The overall height of the tops of most sideboards is approximately waist level.

European Paint Finishes

 

 

 

The new look is a Black European Finish with a slightly distress design. This smooth black finish with light distressing was completed with a buffed wax furniture to make it shine.Original caster wheels dated the pieces, so we decided that glass fixtures would accent the black finish perfecting. From 1900 to 1940, the classic hexagonal glass cabinet knob was an American favorite. In the end the customer loved what we had created from just a week before.

Caster Wheels Polishes & Oiled Clean

Careful preparations was taking in cleaning, priming and repairing the original piece of furniture. The wood chipping details on this specific piece reminded me of Pennsylvanian Dutch designs I have seen in the past. The devil is in the details, the German expression goes and with this particular piece it was important to creating a unique contemporary transformation from what is old to complete in appearance of what is new.

Authentic Reproduction of Classic Style

What fun I have finding something of unique character or design and bringing it into the 21st century to find its place. As a painter of many years, I have painted many things and keep finding new ways to create projects that others enjoy. The cost of refurbishing what we already have has its own economic common sense and not to mention the old diamond in the rough concept. A little elbow grease and a few creative ideas and we can turn around something of satisfaction to be enjoyed for many more years to come.

The cheapest pricing I could find on this one piece was $384 US dollars. The price range when as high as SALE PRICE: $1,098.00. With the initial $50 purchase our total price was $175.00 US dollars and about 16 hours of work in two days. TAZ Design Studios had another satisfied customer and I smiled wholeheartedly!
