Restoration work

Some of my time is spent disguising problems with maybe water damage, matching old wall paper you can’t find anymore, chips or old cracks to fix, even art pieces need a lift once in a while. It is a little like being a detective, you have to figure out how many layers you will need to get to the finished surface, figure out the varnish, sometimes the physical the textures. Here are a few examples of this odd part of my job…
