furniture spa day

I put a post on my Facebook page yesterday about the importance of a furniture spa day. There are many steps before the actual fun painting part of a relove that goes into the success of the piece.

In order to get in the painting line up, ALL my pieces get a well deserved spa day, sometimes it starts with an exfoliation which can be minimal to extreme, some get a chemical peel followed by an intense body scrub in every crevice! Some pieces then need a bit blemish repair while some need a few more cosmetic fixes but rest assured, each piece has had a refreshing spa day before they start their relove makeover.
I think this step is huge, giving the piece a fresh new start; sometimes removing years of grunge and allows the paint to adhere properly. The repairs bring it back to original, just a few steps in the relove process wink emoticon

sometimes a chemical peel is required

then good scrubbing, thanks to my husband who insisted on the fancy drain system in my workshop and the hot/cold water in my garden hose, these both make this job so much easier

 the pieces now relax and dry well before the paint process begins
