Frame Restoration

Birmingham based Interior Designer, John Charles Interiors, invited me to restore this beautiful wood and plaster mirror frame for his client... the project was no light undertaking;

The frame arrived in bubble wrap, in several pieces and finished in gold leaf (in bad repair). Firstly, it was necessary to repair and restore many of the leaf and flower details, once completed (weeks of work!), the frame was treated to coats of Ardenbrite QD primer, coats of Ardenbrite Silver No.6, coats of Ardenbrite Protective Glaze, Treasure Gold "Silver" creme and finally Treasure gold sealer. An exhaustive process, but worth it when you look at the result.

Above you can see the finished frame in-situ... adding a touch of traditionalism into this beautifully elegant modern en suite bathroom.
