Headboard Repaired In Time for 50th Wedding Anniversary

However, the client’s favorite Dixie Furniture Company cherry bedroom suite was damaged and she feared that headboard was beyond repair. The double wedding ring “splat” in the middle of the headboard had been smashed into small pieces. Could we repair the headboard to pre loss condition?

It helped that the client knew of an identical headboard that we could measure and photograph. Using sketches and photographs of the intact headboard, we recreated the double wedding ring splat with the help of the folks at Clarity Design. Then Pete did some incredibly fine detail work to fit all the parts and pieces of the headboard back together and he recreated moldings that had been damaged. We finished the bed just in time for the client’s 50th wedding anniversary. The bedroom is back together and it looks like nothing ever happened!
