BEFORE
AFTER!
This beautiful
mantle came to us
with many layers of
paint as well as
some major termite
damage.
These four surrounding photos represent the challenges we often
face in providing custom finishes and effects.  We often do the
finish work for  local craftsman.  These pieces along with many
others went into a newly built home in the Palma Ceia area of
Tampa, Florida.  Much of the kitchen, bathroom, and office
components where made from Alder wood which was distressed
to simulate age.  The finish was very complex consisting of a total
of 8 steps that included crackle highlights, dark glazing and a rich
Cherry shade.  From start to finish, the finish work alone took
nearly 5 months to complete!
This entry door came to us with
multi-layers of paint.  We striped the paint
back to raw wood.  We then sanded and
addressed any damaged areas and applied
an Antique Oak stain.  The door was then
finished with several layers of an exterior
polyurethane and all the hinges and
hardware was buffed and restored.
