An Elm Refectory style table, the one piece top supported by two trestle ends with a stretcher between. This is matched with six priory style elm ladderback chairs two of which are carvers; the 'rungs' of the chair backs are intricately shaped.
Our lovely customer Sue has owned this set for many years; it was custom made for her and matches an elm sideboard and dresser. Although the wood had a beautiful figure and grain, the original varnish had become very orange over time. Sue made the brave decision that all the pieces needed refinishing to bring them up to date and entrusted the work to us.
After meticulous surface preparation, we professionally spray painted the set. We gave the table top three coats of water based matt varnish. We gave the table frame and the chairs a coat of shellac based primer, followed by a coat of water based acrylic resin undercoat. We then applied two coats of water based acrylic satin in 'Spell Grey'. Finallly, we applied a coat of water based matt varnish.
Sue chose a lovely Art of the Loom 'Hare' fabric; we re-wadded then reupholstered the seat pads and applied Scotchguard protection.
We returned the finished set to Sue, who was delighted with the result. It looked fantastic in her dining room.
