A love for vintage furniture with a splash of color is what we bring to the Good Ju Ju. We have a unique eye for old style furniture with lots of character. Our bold colors bring a focal point to any room in your home. Buffets, China cabinets and dressers are frequently found in our space.  

Here's a fun fact: we name our furniture....I always look at a piece of furniture and relate it to a person (male/female)...for example if I get a girthy buffet we would come up with a man's name (Frank the Tank)  or a delicate dresser I'd call her Lilly....I've had a Big Bertha too!

We want all our pieces to be clean and ready to use, with the inside nice and neat (fabric lined drawers is something I love to do). It adds a special touch and we're all about repurposing with more attention to detail than most dealers. How do we create such a butter-soft finish on our work?  Simple? Errr, not exactly.

Our process:

  1. Thoroughly clean the inside, underneath and all exterior surfaces
  2. Inspect and secure any wobbly legs
  3. Apply wood putty to any minor imperfections, wait for it to dry. Sand and repeat until perfectly smooth
  4.  Align drawers or doors
  5. Glue any lifting veneer
  6. Remove all hardware
  7. Sand entire piece
  8. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  9. Apply 2 coats of PPG paint by hand (not sprayed)
  10. Distress as needed for a more vintage appeal 
  11. Inspect and touch up paint, as needed
  12. Apply 1st coat of polyurethane (hand brushed)
  13. Wait for it to cure and lightly sand to remove microscopic surface particles
  14. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  15. Apply 2nd coat of polyurethane (hand brushed)
  16. Wait for it to cure and lightly sand to remove microscopic surface particles
  17. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  18. Apply 3rd coat of polyurethane (hand brushed)
  19. Wait for it to cure and lightly sand to remove microscopic surface particles
  20. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  21. Apply 4th coat of polyurethane (hand brushed)
  22. Wait for it to cure and lightly sand to remove microscopic surface particles
  23. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  24. Apply 1st coat of polyurethane (hand brushed)
  25. Wait for it to cure and lightly sand to remove microscopic surface particles
  26. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  27. Apply slightly heavier sanding 
  28. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  29. Apply 5th and final coat of polyurethane (hand brushed)
  30. Wait for it to cure and lightly sand to remove microscopic surface particles
  31. Use a tack cloth to remove the dust created from sanding
  32. Clean thoroughly
  33. Reinstall hardware (buff or paint if needed)
  34. Line all drawers if they need it

Seems pretty simple, right?  Not exactly.  This process takes a LOT of extra time on each piece, but for something you're going to have in your home for years, it's definitely worth it!
