Over the years, many people have brought or sent me articles that they want changed or repaired.
This retro hutch is one of them. Several daughters gave this hutch to their parents. After their parents died no one in the family
wanted it. However, they didn't want to sell it or throw it away. One of the daughters brought it to me to repair and rosemal.
I added a crown to the top of the hutch and a pine skirt to the bottom. Next, I sanded the entire hutch and primed it. I also took
off the strips of wood on the drawers and turned the cabinet doors around. The doors had deep indentations in them.
This is the finished hutch. The daughter loved it. She put it in her living room.
Turning the face of the doors inside out made a big improvement.
People are frequently bringing or sending me projects to work on.
This last fall I was sent a spoon holder to be repainted. I primed the spoon holder and background painted it in blue and then
Another party brought me a sewing box in bad condition. I had to repair it and make a new handle. The original handle had
broken off and was missing. The sides of the sewing box were cracked and falling off. After the repairs, I sanded, primed, and
rosemaled the sewing box. They gave the sewing box to one of their granddaughters as a Christmas gift
The picture below is of a Norwegian budstikke. An acomplished woodworker made the budstikke and sent it to me to rosemal.
This is an unusual project I was asked to do. I designed a rosemaling pattern that was etched onto a gravestone.
