Primitive Painted Finishes
Small painted Cabinet Refinished in
Our Primitive Painted finishes have the look of a painted finish that was created
150 years ago. Not everyone appreciates a time worn painted finish, but
for those who do we have a full line of colors to choose from.
This small chest was selected specifically because of it's simplistic lines and style.
This finish is best suited for country primitive pieces with simple lines.
It looks amazing on country cupboards, hutches, chests, table bases,
Kitchen cabinets, etc.
This small oak & pine chest is finished with our more extreme aging process.
We can tailor the amount aging on our primitive finish to your individual taste,
and to the style of the piece.
Below: These finishes are applied so that they have what we call "Normal Wear".
This wear is around the feet, the knobs, and on the edges of doors and drawers;
anywhere the piece would have been normally rubbed, touched, or
experienced wear over a normal 150 year lifespan.
Below: This cabinet had an unfinished pine top. Most people would have just painted
the top, but we're not most people so we decided to veneer the top so that it would
have a little more personality and could be used
anywhere in the home.
Below: I had some very old pieces of Quatersawn English Oak veneer
I knew would be perfect for this project. Since this veneer is 60+ years old, it
already had a great aged patina.
I book matched two pieces that I would use for the top.
Below: The newly veneered top with it's "old" Quatersawn English oak veneer
really makes this small cabinet a special one of a kind piece.
