I found this bed a number of years ago in one of my favorite junkin’ spots and even though it had some terrible damage to one section, I HAD to have it! It’s a gorgeous caned piece with lovely trim by Berkey and Gay and is signed. The condition was really good except for the one spot-a crucial one since one of the fabulous rails has to be inserted there and wood was missing!
Fast forward that number of years-we have a partner in the shop who is fabulous with those weird fixes so I turned it over to her and she graciously agreed to fix it and paint it too-thank you, MIss Evie!
She fixed it and told us what we needed to finish repairing it and make it function again-then she painted and painted and painted – using several American Paint Company paints – then waxed it:
A beautiful set and repair!!
