Client's update ( dining room set makeover )

Good morning everyone.............

I have to give such thanks to all of you for being so understanding this week - I feel terrible - I'm behind with comments ( hundreds of them ) and I haven't had time to visit - I just keep posting and posting and feel I'm not doing my share here in Bloglandia.................
I really will catch up on the weekend!

Ok - this week was a little messed up - I worked at April's on Monday afternoon - 
Tuesday morning I checked my messages and there was one from the doctor - I had forgotten all
about a follow up appointment from that fiasco in January - and had already forgotten a prior one so 
had no choice but to bail out on April for the day..............
Went again on Wednesday -
Thursday April had previous plans - so I made other plans - then she was able to cancel hers - couldn't cancel mine - so another write off............
Went again on Friday - forgot my camera................
I brought the 4 chairs home to do from here ( I HATE doing chairs lol - but they take the longest so better I spend a couple of days here doing them )

So here's where we stood after a day and a half - ( wednesday before I left for the day ) 

painted, dining room table, pedestal legs, mahogany, ascp, french linen, old white,

including 2 leaves - I'll have to get a close up of those legs because they're just gorgeous!

from " meh "

painted,antique,buffet and hutch,ascp,french linen, old white,

to such elegance - God I love this piece - it's casual sophistication - an oxymoron I know but that's how I see it now - it doesn't look stuffy and formal - not finished in these photos but almost - 

painted, antique buffet, hutch, before,after,ascp,french linen,old white,

painted, before, after, mahogany,antique,sideboard,buffet,ascp,french linen,old white

painted, before,after,antique,buffet,sideboard,mahogany,annie sloan,french linen,old white

There's a technique that's being applied to make it look kind of like " driftwood " turned out gorgeous - 
But I'll save that until it's finished.

I swear to you, I didn't realize how absolutely beautiful this set was until it was painted - the details on each piece are just amazing!
Once again, I'm in love with inanimate objects lol

April and Vladismir ( you know I'm using Aliases here, right?  Don't ask me how I picked Vladismir when her hubby has the most North American name you can imagine lmho,  had an almost identical set in their garage for ages - couldn't sell it - they finally got rid of it last month - I would have bought that in a heart beat - and apparently they had to let it go for almost nothing  ) 

If I don't speak to you this weekend - have a lovely Easter weekend

Much love,

Party time!!!
