Her is a picture of the frame as I found it.
After taking a two week break from the blog here is recap of our latest offerings.
Before: Here is a picture of the above sofa before we reupholstered it. We thought that the plaid was ugly but Teddy the corgi loved it.

Portland has been buried in snow all week. As a result we were confined to our home for several days. Fortunately we had a few projects on hand to work on.
Here is a picture of our backyard after the first 7'' of snow.

2016 was a wonderful year for us and we are looking forward to what 2017 holds. We are off to a quick start with several new offerings. Here are a few of the projects we have completed since our last post.

Here are a few of our latest offerings:
We just finished upholstering this gondola lounge chair and ottoman. It was a pleasure to modernize this set. It also now nicely matches the gondola sofa that we have for sale.
Walnut & brass tambour door credenza by DWR. When I found this piece one of the tambour doors were broken. As a result I had to shorten the doors but it still makes a wonderful storage piece.
Lastly, we put a few pieces from our personal collection up for sale just in time for the Christmas shopping season.

We are back from our Thanksgiving vacation and have been working on a few projects.
The first is a 3 piece living room set by the Paoli Chair Company. When I found this set it was in bad need of repair and upholstery.
We updated this set by refinishing the oak frames and staining them with a walnut finish. We upholstered them in the original style but we used thicker foam and fabric rather than vinyl.
Lastly, we have begun work on this gondola lounge chair and ottoman. It will be available soon in a light gray fabric.

Through out the month of November we have been remodeling our kitchen. This work put a little dent in our production but we were still about to produce a few new pieces. Here are some highlights:
We are always on the lookout for a gondola sofa but they can be tough to track down. We were lucky to track this one down. It is now reupholstered and available at Hawthorne Vintage Modern

We have been continuing to find some great pieces and renew them with no delay. Here are the pieces that we finished over the last week.
We have found, refinished, and upholstered a few of these benches. This is the first time that we have used this particular pattern. The light colors contrast nicely with the dark wood. // Sold
Lastly, we just refinished this Danish teak dining set. The restoration was challenging but went smoothly // Sold
