What a great way to use good quality furniture again, but with upscaled design features.
We have spent many hours on repairing and refurbishing what you see in these pictures. First I sanitize the furniture which includes permanently removing any odd smells that linger in old dressers. (Always do a sniff test inside dresser drawers when shopping for a vintage one! Do not buy it if it has a bad odor.) Then Peter uses all kinds of specialty glues to make tighter glue joints than it had to begin with. Sometimes that requires pulling it all apart to accomplish a reliable tight glue joint or whatever else it might need to make it like new again. Then I have to remove most of the finish for good adhesion. Can never skip this part! Second it gets sanded and primed. Next I look at it for a while to decide what personality traits of it I want to come through. Then I mix a custom color of paint for that piece and hand paint it. I decide what fabulous fabric I will use on an upholstered chair. Then it gets sanded again and wiped down thoroughly. There may require veneer work to be done, or lathe work to make a matching missing rail or all kinds of work to make drawers work smoothly once again. There may be new hardware put on. There is so much more to our work than just "slapping on a coat of paint"! We even use forested wood from our property to make needed repairs! There are many more pieces of finished furnishings not shown.
With respect to privacy we do not post before and after photos of clients decorated spaces Dominique has transformed as an interior decorator. If you would like your own spaces organized and made beautiful by Dominique or would like to have your home staged for selling and getting more money for it, then please set up an appointment with us and if needed we can provide references.
Don't forget your front door. Dominique can give it special curb appeal that is a huge factor in selling your home or just making you love seeing your own home you are keeping. She can walk you through your property and home to give you "homework" to do to get it ready for market. Since we restored five of our own homes and property from different centuries we know what is necessary. We do offer free decorating advice for the pieces you purchase from us here at the Yellow Barn. Always bring pictures and measurements of your spaces you are furnishing to make it easy for a good fit!
Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far! We couldn't do it without you!
