Weekend Round Up

This weekend we mostly spent time finishing a couple projects just in time the Sunday Emporium.  But we did find one amazing piece.
 This Danish teak credenza is 84'' long x 34'' tall x 18'' deep. It has four adjustable shelves and five drawers .

 This gondola sofa was one of our upholstery projects this week.  It is now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

Plycraft chair and ottoman reupholstered in Pendleton wool.  It was the first thing to sell at the Sunday Emporium.

Good Stuff

This next week we will be upholstering a couple piece for the Sunday Emporium at Rejuvenation on Sunday 1/25.

 Gondola sofa are one of our top sellers.  It will look much more modern by the time we are done with it.

 This Plycraft lounge chair and ottoman look very different but I have a plan to upholster them in a cohesive way that will them a nice match

 Lastly our newest offering at Hawthorne Vintage is this Norwegian teak bar cabinet.
 The top expands to create a larger table surface.

The inside provides lots of storage and has beautiful brass hardware.

Before & After

We spent this week finishing a couple projects just in time for the weekend rush.  They are now both available at Hawthorne Vintage.

I bought this this chair back in June but never got around to refinishing it until now.

 I completely disassembled it and sanded the entire frame.

I then used Danish oil to bring out the natural beauty of the beech wood.

 Lastly Heather make cushions in a wonderful orange fabric.

The second project was a modern wingback chair.  Heather did all of the work on this one.

She made the seat and backrest much more comfy and used an eye-catching blue fabric.

Before & After: Sofa

When I picked up this sofa I assumed it was would be a standard upholstery job.  It was not the case.  The sofa frame was made of oak which is very difficult to remove staples from.  Also half of the springs inside of the sofa were broken.  I had to reinforce the frame and replace all of the springs.  

Once the frame was fully repaired I turned it over to Heather and she did a wonderful job reupholstering it.  It is now available at Hawthorne Vintage.

2014 // A Retrospective

2014 was an amazing year for us! Besides selling a whole bunch of stuff we also bought a house, took a trip to Scandinavia, and got another corgi puppy!  Looking back at the year this picture stuck out to me.  Its a wonderful mix of all of the sorts of thing we hunt for everyday.

There are 3 themes that stuck out to me in 2014 rocking chairs, gondola sofas, and Pendleton wool upholstery.  Here is a look at some of my favorite rocking chairs.
