I am now looking at vintage furniture a little closer. I do okay visualizing the end result, but what I haven’t been doing is looking at pieces and how I can change vintage furniture structurally to make improvements. I recently had a customer ask for a couple changes on a side table. She asked if we could remove the two front cane wicker doors, and put a larger top on the side table for more space. We didn’t place the top on evenly, we added a majority of the extra board in the back so the beautiful detail in the front wouldn’t be covered.
The results are awesome. Looking back, the doors were actually distracting from the detail of the legs, and molding under the table top.
Agree or disagree? This opens the doors of opportunity to allow MORE furniture to follow us home!
