I Also Do Restoration ServicesPosted by Franziska on Jul 3, 2012 in Blog, Living & Design, Upcycling & DIY | 6 comments
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that I also restore furniture per request. A friend of mine asked me last week if I could fix, restore, sand and paint two of her antique chairs. She already had an idea how she wanted them to be done and after I had a look at them, I knew that I could do it.
I am not a carpenter but over the past two years, I have fixed, repurposed and upholstered many different pieces and sold them at the market. Every day, I learn something new and the power tools my husband gave me for christmas are in use every single day -they’re my best friends right now (besides our iRobot vacuum cleaners, we have two!).
So, I have decided to take more fixing and restoring jobs in. Of course, I’d need to see the pieces first before I can tell whether I can do it or not. In the past, I’ve also built frames for artwork on canvas (the stretcher frames) for some customers.
(someone just recently asked me if I could sew curtains for their house. NO I don’t, sorry!) But feel free to ask about fixing or building jobs, I may be able to do it. Asking is free!!
