As I type this, we’re preparing for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy. Us here in Situate are a pretty hardy crowd, but the town has cancelled school and has set up an evacuation center if the storm gets bad. The rain is falling and the wind is howling. Fingers crossed it doesn’t get too bad and we all stay safe.
I’m so excited to share with you my latest before and after. My client bought this beautiful Henredon Buffet but wanted to freshen it up for a mountain retreat they just had built.

Here’s the before:

|Emile and Chateau Grey (with clear wax)|
After careful consideration we decided the colors needed to be toned down with some dark wax and the results are stunning.

The hardware looks lovely against it:

The wax brought out a great patina on the top and buffing enhanced this with a nice sheen.
