Now before I get attacked for painting this piece, WE WERE HIRED to do so. I know people feel strongly about painting antiques so if you would like to learn how we made this antique pretty again, read on 🙂 For those of you that think I have sinned skip MY POSTS BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT I DO!
That being said, this is my FAVORITE style of furniture. Jacobean style pieces truly have my heart, but this makeover was brought to us by a client that wanted a modern update for this piece. Although it was in ok shape, there were many imperfections that needed to be fixed before we were able to put our touch on it. The oak was so dried out from this piece being stored in a garage, so there were cracks all over, a leg was split and the shelving had definitely seen better days. But, before we started on the repairs, we did what we always do and that is clean!
