When It's Too Hot to Paint

Happy Fall!? It doesn't feel like fall weather here in So Cal. Last week it was too hot to work in the shop so I took advantage of some great estate sales and brought home a treasure trove of furniture!

Hopefully, they'll turn out beautiful when I'm done with them and go to good homes. They better - because I had to face two of my phobias - a bridge and a high, windy road to get to this sale! Aah, the things we do to get great furniture!

Here's just a few of the pieces I found.

Like this gorgeous French Provincial dresser. I've had a hard time finding one like this with the center feet - so tickled I finally found one!

A Bassett buffet:

You may know that I have a "thing" for secretary desks. Can't wait to get started on this one!

All I had to do is drive around the corner to get this one - no bridges or heights! A lovely French dresser - check out those serpentine drawers!

I've updated my "Unfinished Furniture" page with these items and (others!) with their dimensions. If you're interested, please let me know. I'm sorry, but I don't ship and these items are not available "as is". I'd love to refinish one of these pieces just for you!

Here's to cooler temperatures and a great week!
