Gadora Wilder commissioned a table and chairs REDO. Each piece was sanded thoroughly, a taupe undercoat was applied, then top coat of bright white, then sanded again, then a light polyurethane (clear satin) was applied and brushed off. The whole set took just under 4 days to complete. The owners are THRILLED. The homeowners house is done with a cottage, beachy feel and her new dining set looks brilliant on her pine-colored floors.
