Just a quick post on the finished Adrian Pearsall set!

I finally finished the rahabilitation on the Pearsall set and what a stunningly gorgeous set it is!
Although this was a lot bigger challenge than I anticipated, I'm not complaining after seeing it come to fruition.
 
 
Since this was accepted as a consignment, I was determined to keep track of my time and materials in the redo. Unfortunately, after about two weeks into this working on it from 2-4 hours a day almost every single day, I gave up. I would guesstimate I have somewhere around 65-80 hours in the finished product. What a marathon!
 

 
The nubby oatmeal sofa/bed that resided just inside the front door sold over the weekend which freed up space for this in it's place. And another new aquistion of a pair of 60's splay legged 30 inch bookcases with sliding glass doors paired up really nicely with the table and chairs. Our Rya rug, though a bit smallish, looks great with all these pieces well!
We are ready for the weekend to commence!

  1. Wasn't sure how I'd feel about red fabric but it does look really nice, knocked another one outta the park I'd say. Can't tell from the pic but it looks like a velvety texture to it.

    1. Hey David, Yes, the fabric has a bit of velvety lined texture which I think works well with the set. I would have prefered a more nubby feel, but this looks really great on this set and should wear really well! Hard to price a labor of love and projects like this are always a learning curve and lessons learned! If you don't try, you never learn...

  2. As always, you did a stellar job! The set looks beautiful, and I bet it will sell in no time flat.

    1. Hey Dana, Thanks for the praise! I already have a few customers that will be through this weekend that have a serious interest and I doubt it will be in the store long! I seriously love restoring this stuff!

  3. Really nice job, David! The red fabric gives the dark wood on the chairs a rich look. Great looking set!

  4. Thanks Lee Ann, The pics really don't do this justice. It looks a lot better in person! I likely need to invest in a better camera!
