Restoring Family Memories

One of the great pleasures I get is partnering with Bair & Bair Furniture Refinishing and Repair and restoring the artwork on furniture for their clients. Knowing that I helped breathe new life back into childhood memories for people is a wonderful feeling. Last week I painted the artwork back onto these chairs that once belonged to the clients Grandmother. They were first refinished, re-glued and repaired at the shop and then brought to me for painting. I worked from pictures to recreate the original artwork as best I could. I took some artistic liberties. Now back to the shop for a finish coat and then the seats will be re-caned by hand. I can’t wait to see the final results after the weaver is done with the seats! I can’t wait until I start my weaving classes again!
