  stain & varnish  

a beautiful bench waiting to get transported to it's new home. the original slats didn't survive the strain of this project's overall goals and a decision was made that they be discarded due to excessive weathering issues over time. new ones were purchased, cut to size, drilled and confirmed for fit. these were then stained to the color and appearance seen here. our part in this project was more of an informal behind the scenes consulting and troubleshooting role as we did not participate in the actual finishing work but felt we must salute the great looking outcome nonetheless.

  stain & varnish restoration  

this door's condition had deteriorated over the course of many years. sun and water damage along with varying levels of mildew can be difficult to overcome once the original coating has been worn down.

it was first removed from it's hinges and then arranged on a set of sawhorses in order to facilitate proper prep. several towels were used as pads to protect the reverse side from damage during this process.

creating a pleasing appearance without knowing what the door looked like in it's original condition involved some subjective decision making from those participating in the restoration process. moving closer to a brown result with hints of red added in here and there was ultimately chosen in favor over the more orange-like look this door initially presented once it had been stripped entirely.

as the clear coat work begins, the varied coloration of this door's wood grain can truly be seen, especially in the two bead board type insert areas.

this door's transformation is nearly complete as the clear work wraps up. going forward it will require periodic maintenance coats of the protective material used as mother nature and florida's severe weather conditions will eventually overpower even the finest efforts.

   cabinet painting  

the evolution continues at this longer term remodeling project. in this photo series the work that was done on an extended run of cabinets can be seen from beginning, in progress, as well as a final results photo or two. a decision was made prior to starting to defer on doing the cabinet fronts here for now, in order to focus on other areas of the home going forward. at least one unknown item had prevented the top from being a uniform finish across it's entire surface with prior ownership and it's outline is visible in the first photo below. color here was matched to the existing green. sheen used was satin.

   tabletop refinish   

in the first image this drop leaf table can be seen just after it's arrival back at "headquarters". the remainder of the series show it's trip through various steps in the refinishing process.

this piece has been in the client's family for quite some time and has a high level of sentimental value attached to it.

the main idea from a refinishing aspect was to clean up all of the different scratches and dings from years gone by while maintaining the woodgrain's beautiful appearance.

in the final photo it has assumed it's rightful position back in a small dining section just off the kitchen in this home.

after a decision was made to retain the existing doors & drawer fronts, stripping efforts on the old coating have begun. refilling the old drawer pull mounting holes was also required. sanding in this instance was done by

  bedroom remodel 

this area may have originally been an

office with a small side bar in it but after some consideration, the homeowners here have made several changes in creating another bedroom. among them are new flooring, demo'ing out of the side bar's cabinets and adding organizer shelving in the closet space.

  custom finish on tongue & groove ceiling 

 

the homeowners here have replaced an older lanai ceiling that had originally been done with drywall. the prior ceiling had been patched several different times and was in poor condition overall. after discussing various different looks with them and creating several samples, a white look was decided upon. a four inch brush was used in order to achieve the final result. the goal here was adding a fine and beautiful accent to the ceiling without burying the woods natural appearance.

  cypress run fireplace wall remodel 

 

these photos represent the general progression which has taken place. the very first picture depicts this wall in it's original form prior to the work truly starting. one item has however gotten a jumpstart in the process and that is the new countertop at left of the fireplace. it's seen here in unfinished form. it has been pre-installed and was long enough to provide enough surplus material to create the three floating shelves seen above it.
