One of my favorite restorations to date!!!!❤️❤️❤️ This started out as an old, sad orangey oak claw foot table. I saw the potential in her AMAZING wood grain and wanted to do something that highlight it so I tried my hand at a CERUSING technique. The top was striped down to the bare wood ( which was a challenge because of all the varied directions of the grain) and cleaned. Then using a brass wire brush the grain was "scrubbed"to allow the grain to open up. The top was then stained using India Ink. Once dry, I applied clear shellac over the entire top. Working a small area at a time, I applied liming wax using a rubber spatula pushing the wax into the grain. I used a blue shop towel to remove excess and buffed immediately. After the top was completed I used AS clear wax to seal the top @anniesloanhome . The base of the table was painted in Wise Owl chalk paint in black @wiseowlpaint and given a General Finishes glaze in white @generalfinishes . Base was sealed with General Finishes HPTC in satin.
Red oak sanded and refinished with a reactive stain and finished in 2K oil. Dramatically changing the look of this floor. Greys are becoming ever more popular so if grey is what you want then give us a call #bespoke#cerused#floorservice#lovekerry
Sneak peek of our Antique dresser. If a reNEWed piece doesn’t have that WOW factor then I rethink it until it does! The natural drawers were nice on this old gal, but the color was throwing me off a bit. I decided to give the drawer front a light paint wash and dry brushing to give a cerused look. It’s just what they needed! Next up... polyurethane and lining the drawers. .

I’m gonna give it to him tomorrow. Happy 60th birthday pop. #cribbageboard#motherofpearl#abaloneshell#scrimshaw#cerused#sterlingsilver#inlay#100hourproject sadly, my last black abalone project so while you may not agree with the dark staining I wanted the black abalone to be center stage and tried to alternate grains to show different colors but was very difficult with a depleted stock I’m unwilling to fill, I’m not going to be doing this anymore mostly because I love the ocean, and don’t want anything from it besides what I can catch and eat. But also because of the massive amount of time I have to invest. So enjoy the stages.
