Did you know this famous gal is in my ward? Well, she was sitting in front of me during sacrament meeting yesterday, and I reached over and did a little tap-tap on her shoulder and said, "I think I saw you in your garage painting a headboard bright yellow, or something like that; I wasn't stalking you." I continued since she was still nodding and smiling, "I have a set of Henredon, Louis XV style furniture that needs to be refinished." She smiled and said, in a very professional, strait-forward way, "My prices are not cheap, meaning I don't do a chest of drawers for 200 bucks." I think she could smell a bargain hunter, so I quickly said, "Well I'm looking to preserve this furniture. It was my great grandma's, and so well, yeah...I'm looking for quality, you know?"
I sounded like an idiot, so whatever.
This morning I sent her an e-mail with pictures of the set. I will keep you posted on our progress. In the meantime, look at some of her cool furniture restoration projects.
