The Elizabeth #piece of the Month

Welcome back!! This is the piece of the Month. I know some of you may have seen her before when she entered The Amy Howard at Home Before and After contest. Unfortunately, she didn't win but she rated in the top 20 out of at least 80- 100 or more participants. So that was Amazing. Thank You all for your support. Now she is ready to be sold.

Better with age this product is great. This was my first time using this new product. After sanding the tables and removing dust you just apply a layer of better with age . In the product guide above I have shared a quick demo from on how to apply. ​​​​​​​​

Sent via To achieve the finish on the April piece of the month I had to sand the badly peeling tops down to the bear wood. I used The Surfprep sander. It's one of the best purchases I ever made for my business. You can also sand by hand or use a orbital sander using 80 , 150 and 220 grit depending on the finish. ​​​​​​​​

Look Familiar? I know at least one person has these tables or something very similar to them. They are old but well made so the finish on top fails before they sturdy structure. Let me show you how I bring them back to life.

To complete these chairs I repeated the stencil process with the glass beads on the front of the chairs in a mirror style. They are sisters, not twins. So there you have it. These comfortable, elegant beauties measure 34 inches(h) and 21 1/2 inches (w). They are available for LOCAL PICK UP AND DELIVERY ONLY
IN THE CLEVELAND, OHIO AREA.

03/13/2022

I used a leaf stencil with a more graphic style. I felt the sharp point on the leaves would work well with the Safari-inspired chairs.

Available for LOCAL pick up & delivery ONLY in the Cleveland, Ohio area.

03/10/2022

For the design I mixed black metallic paint and glass beads together to create this raised design effect.

03/08/2022

I started this project by removing the seats and giving the chairs a good cleaning. I rolled 3 coats of paint and used a small detail brush to be sure I got full coverage. Can you believe this smooth finish was done with a roller? Black seems like an easy color to paint, but you must look out for holidays (which are missed areas).

The Safari Sisters are available for LOCAL pick up & delivery ONLY in the Cleveland Ohio area.

03/06/2022

I found this fabric and thought it was the perfect print to compliment The Safari chairs. I hoped it would give me the look I was wanting. They turned out great.

03/03/2022

In this photo, I use gold accents to show the contrast between the rich black chairs and the gold home accessories. This Creates a bold statement. I love a great smelling room so I added a The Second Gaze Restoration candle.

03/02/2022

These sisters were rescued from the land field just in time. What I loved most about these Italian-style chairs were the beautifully curved legs. I saw a vision for them and I had to have them. So I rescued them. They measure 34 inches (h) and 21 1/2 inches (w).
