I’m going to take an opportunity it introduce you to a new blog. For all the years we have been together my wife Cheryl has been a creative force in whatever we embark upon. The two of us have been restoring shacks, homes, buildings, furniture, carriages or whatever we happen upon along the way.
Cheryl is passionate about interior design and decorating. The challenges of color and texture on all of our renovation projects have landed squarely in her lap. We felt it was a good time to expand on that natural ability and use those talents to help other clients with their decorating projects. So is the beginning of Cheryl Frey Interiors. From interior painting and decorating to furniture and décor selection Cheryl can help make your project a success. Check out her site below.
We continue work on the Kimball Bachelor Brougham. The body is now ready for paint. It has been detail sanded and Dale will begin putting on color later this week.
The upper portions of the body will be black and the lower recessed panels will be a deep forest green. Dale will begin by painting the majority of the body black and work from there. It is a heavy body but it will be hung from the ceiling in the paint booth to be painted.
Many of the small components of that restoration have been painted. Here is a step cover which is fastened to one of the doors. When you open the door it swings along with the door to expose the step to enter the coach.
The other project that continues to progress is the Albany Cutter restoration. The runners have been put into first coat primer and Brandon began the sanding process on those this afternoon.
The parts that have been blasted are now in primer as well. They will each be sanded individually before seeing another coat of primer later in the week.
Bob in the meantime has been busy working on the body. He has all of the joints and splits stabilized and has both the inside and the outside of the body covered in a layer of hard coat sealer. Here you can see a fresh coat covering an area that required additional attention. The balance of the body has already been coated and sanded. It should be ready for some primer by later today.
Have a great Wednesday.
