Wood Furniture Refinishing.

Posted on: No Comments

When one of our clients approached us about refinishing some one of a kind outdoor furniture we jumped at the opportunity. This solid wood set had been brought from over seas some time ago so we had to make sure we took the time and care to ensure it would come out perfect.

 We had done lots of wood furniture refinishing in the past but nothing like this.  As we were unsure of the exact wood type we had to do some testing with different methods to make sure the all over refurbishment was exactly what our clients were looking for.

Once we got all of the heavy pieces to our shop we were able to jump in.  The project started with us cleaning and stripping the original coating that was on the wood.  There was some mold under the original clear coat so we had to strip it and clean the wood before we could begin recolouring the pieces.  This took some time as we didn’t want to damage any of the unique shape and lines in the wood.  Once all the prep was done we were able to start bringing this furniture back to life and ready for use.

After many hours spent in the shop the set is now complete and we have to say that the finished product is exactly what we had hoped.  The new darker stain and clear sealer have made the pieces look that much better.  You can now see the variations in the natural wood and the character of the pieces seem so much stronger.  In all we would say that this wood furniture refinishing project was a great success.

Domain Decorating’s Bedroom Paint Picks

Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore is a great choice for a bedroom. It is a dark neutral that can be paired with many different accents and looks great with white trim and mouldings. This dark neutral can be very inviting and warm.

Tranquility is how Benjamin Moore describes our next bedroom paint pick. Quiet Moments is said to inspire quiet meditation and is a great colour selection if you’re looking to create an elegant soothing space.

Dark Purple is a very glamourous colour. We love this for a master suite. Its dark tone provides a great sense of warmth especially for those cold winter nights.

Adding Warmth With Wood.

Posted on: No Comments

Adding wood elements to your home is a great way to add warmth.  Solid wood accents can be added with mantels, railings, beams and even ceilings.  There are so many ways to bring the warmth of wood indoors into your home to create a beautiful and inviting space for your family.

Today we thought that we’d share some wood elements from homes that we’ve recently worked on.  These are some great examples of adding warmth with wood.

Homestar Designs

Here is a home we completed with Homestar Designs. You can see the beautifully stained wood mantel, beams and ceiling. This room is very warm and the presence of wood brings a classic elegance.

Gallery Homes

This is a kitchen in a home that we completed with Gallery Homes. You can see here that the beams are accented by using a different colour on the wood ceilings. As well, the windows are cased with stained wood versus painted mouldings. These wood accents add a country feel to a classic space.

Homestar Designs

Here is an open concept kitchen with a country feel. The simple white walls and cabinetry are beautifully complimented by the two different tones of wood on the ceilings and beams. This wood ceiling opens up the space more that a solid painted ceiling would. This home was completed by Homestar Designs.

Here you can see some wood brought into the space with the dark stained door and trim as well as the stairs and railings. This is another home we worked on with Homestar Designs.
