Profile- Furniture Artist Emma Del Bianco

Breathing new life into old pieces comes naturally to Burlington & Oakville based Interior Decorator & Furniture Refinisher Emma Del Bianco. When a client comes with a piece it holds sentimental value- which has sustained damage whether through flooding, sunlight or just with time. Her job is to give it a bit of professional TLC and a chance at a second life.

About

These artfully distressed beauties are the result of a practiced eye, taking into account the lines of the piece & considering the space its going into- and choosing the right technique and finishes to enhance what the piece already offers. Often this calls for a cheerful color, or a new upholstery selection.

technique

“I paint with Van Gogh chalk paint, and then do a wet sand once it’s dry. So it’s just an ultra fine sandpaper (600 grit) and water. Next, I put water on the piece and start doing a light sand until the paint becomes smooth and the wood starts to come through on any edges and details. Then I seal it with an all natural beeswax “

She makes it sound so easy!
