What is on the horizon for interior design in 2011? One trend is to update and customize your existing, good-quality furniture with a new, high-quality paint job.
Having a skilled professional transform your furniture into something new and exciting is an economical and earth-friendly alternative to tossing the old and buying new. Look around your home. Grandmother’s old mahogany sideboard may appear dark and gloomy, but look past the worn finish, look at the lines and form. These pieces were well made. Most are solid wood construction with dovetailed joints – no staples or fiberboard here. Take a look at the detailing. Many pieces have delicate carvings, reeded legs and nice turnings, all which can virtually disappear in a dark and dated finish. Transformed by paint and special techniques such as, slight distressing, hand-rubbed finishes, changing or cleaning the hardware or a beautifully refinished top, these pieces suddenly pop! Elegant lines stand out and the piece is shiny, bright and new again.
