After making sure Preston's parents were ok with it, we found a place that would refurnish and reupholster the whole thing. We were so excited! I picked out the fabric from a website and the fabric gods were shining down on me. It was a perfect match to our throw pillows in our living room. So a month ago, Andrews Refinishing came and picked up our pieces.
Here are the before pictures:
When they delivered them back on Monday I couldn't stop saying, "Oh My Gosh! I can't believe it's the same furniture." With every piece they brought in the house I was in shock. So amazing. I can't wait to get years and years of holidays out of this table, just like Preston and his cousins did growing up. This means so much to us.
Here are the after pictures:
Not pictured are the other chairs and the 2 leaves. The leaves are very important as underneath them in crayon are the childhood drawings of all the kids, including the adorable handwritten names of Haley and Kelsey. We specifically made sure that those were not touched during the process.
If you ever need anything reupholstered or refinished, you can either do it yourself based on something you found on Pinterest, or you can call Andrews Refinishing. We know we never could have done such a fantastic job ourselves. Huge thank you to Simon, Nancy and the rest of the staff. Your work is well done and greatly appreciated.
