Refurbished furniture

I'm so happy to be sharing one of the projects I've been working on behind-the-scenes!

Pinch River is proud to launch the first refurbished furniture items for sale!

Here you can see the lovely antique timber shield-back chairs in their 'before' state (first 4 images) and then the 'after' images. Although they were nice before aren't they just spectacular now!

Before being professionally stripped and spray painted the chairs were re-glued to strengthen and stabilise them. I didn't want to take away everything authentic and original about them otherwise they would just look like reproductions, so there are still subtle hints of age and use under the paint job that add to their character. They were then professionally re-upholstered in Pinch River 'wattle bird in the bottle brush' design in (C1) Calistemon Red on Latte.

As you can see from the images, the chairs are charming and look great from any angle, making them ideal to position anywhere in a room. They lend themselves to period homes as well as French provincial, shabby chic and eclectic interiors.

The chairs are currently in my shop window display until the end of March (image below - I swapped it out this morning), but are available for sale through my website - keep in mind much love along with many hands and hours have gone into transforming these chairs...
