The J&H Anderson Chairs - Before & After Custom Refinish

We have a wonderful client who purchased part of the Braylin bed set and then brought us these chairs to refinish. She dropped off dining chairs that she guessed were over 100 years old as well as the chair shown just below.

Before
After She requested the robin egg blue refinish and I think it turned out beautifully. In fact, I want one. Surprise, huh! I am not sure quite sure how she is going to use this chair but I really don't think that it matters because it will look charming however she chooses! Chairs are such a great way to accessorize. They can be placed next to beds and hold stacked blankets or books or a glass vase with fresh flowers!

I have an old chippy painted white chair from my great grandmother. I will post about that soon!

Before
These chairs she believes are over 100 years old. They really are in great shape to withstand time like that! She went ahead and pulled off the seats herself and just had us paint the frame. She purchased a new white table and wanted these done in the classic black for her new home.

After
I think they are amazing! I would love to post on these chairs once they have their seats installed and they are complete. I think the framework is so classic with the vertical lines extending up the back.

I believe these will look so sharp and clean next to her new table.
Thank you Andersons! I hope you and your family enjoy these chairs and your new home!

Up next is another white bedroom set. It includes two nightstands and one large nine drawer dresser. It is similiar to the Braylin set from which we had great feedback!

We also have a dirty white / gray hutch coming up! I am really excited about this one!

Hurray! It is Friday!
And Good Friday at that!
I hope it is an enjoyable one for everyone.

I'd love to see those black chairs once they're completed too. They'll look great around a white table.
You have the best job in the world!

All the chairs are great, but I really like that robin's egg blue. Nothing like a classic black though.

I have a chair just like the black ones. It used to have a cane seat we removed. Now we just need to complete it. When Glidden was giving away free quarts of paint once, I ordered orange paint. Now I'm not sure that I want to use it on this lovely chair. :)

Those look great!!!

I believe those chairs you painted black probably are around 100 yrs old. They look exactly like the chairs that my mom got from my great grandmother's dining room set. When I saw them I knew they looked familiar and it actually took me a minute to place them! Great work!

Those chairs are almost an exact match for our dining room chairs that we got from a second hand store about 15 years ago, our chairs, we have 6, but they had about 20 were originally from a nunnery and have some sort of numbering system on them
at the back where the seat goes in.
