This is one of the most exciting parts of the job, giving an old piece new life. Thandi, my paint specialist has striped down a pair of my client's antique French chairs. She then paints a base coat, gilds over this, then adds a white strip detail and finally ages and waxes the piece. The chairs are then off to the upholster to be covered in the most beautiful peacock blue linen. Will post a photograph when they are done.
