GIVING A NEW LEASE OF LIFE
TO PIECES OF THE PAST
- NICKY STOCK, SENIOR INTERIOR DESIGNER AT DUGGAN STUDIOS, KENSINGTON (LONDON)
ANTIQUE CONSOLE TABLE 1.
“Another magic touch from Clementene! She has a very high quality workmanship and attention to detail. She is
very professional and it shows when someone loves what they do for a living. She will work away until she is more than 100% satisfied that the job in hand is fully accomplished to a very high standard. I’m looking forward to working with her again in the future.”
Clementene was commissioned by a London-based interior designer to source and paint two demi lune console tables. Her client wanted the pieces painted in a modern, flat, high-gloss finish. Clementene sanded, cleaned and primed each piece with a superior quality primer / sealer. She used a fine quality water-based eggshell paint and a high grade sand paper which she used between each layer to achieve an ultra-flat and smooth finish. The paint was sealed with a high-gloss varnish. She used a very fine wire wool to sand each coat of varnish for a mirror-like finish.
