Still working on the "twins". It's getting hard for me to tell them apart at this point. I passed on bleaching the tops as they were at the marginal point where they were pretty much good as they are.
One and two coats down and ready put down the last two.
Yes, I think when these have the last two coats of finish no one will be able to tell that they weren't from the same family.Totally love bringing these back to original (well sort of) condition! My apologies to you lovers of the sable finish but I can't replicate. Wheat and chanpagne only and I have refinishing clients that are adamant for their particular finish either way.
Still haven't received the proper bulbs for the Sputnik lights but am eagerly waiting to get out on our floor soon. We also picked up a Saarinen style tulip table and 4 chairs from one of our consignors that will be going into one of our stores soon. No, it's not a Knoll or a Burke piece but a really nice vintage set just the same.
Next post should be about the lights and the completed "twin sons" side by side (see if you can tell which is which)...and maybe some shots of the Saarinen dinette.
A Modern Line
