Two pieces were recently painted using some of my all time favorite paint products. One was done for a local customer and the other is on its way to a customer in Austin, Texas. Neutral colors work well on both of these pieces since their size will command enough attention.

PAINT: Benjamin Moore Aura and Advance

Staging and photographing these pieces has become just as enjoyable as painting them. Here's one of the raw photos before it was corrected in Adobe Photoshop:

This piece was in very bad shape when I found it. I used Bondo to rebuild large areas of missing wood. I use this product almost always now because it cures quickly, is easy to sand, and hardens to a very hard finish. It's used on car exteriors but is also great for furniture repair.
