Here is a small Régence-style armoire in beech and walnut. Pulled from out of the attic in the back of a convent, it was in a sorry state.

The homogeneity of the armoire as a whole was not at all discernible and it was necessary to dismantle nearly all of it before I could consolidate the unstructured piece. Then I repositioned the three distinct parts after having recuperated, remoulded and replaced the back panel. Once all the parts were reassembled, the armoire regained its balanced proportions.

I also revamped the patina and ensured that the doors and drawers were again functional. I used antique panelling to replace the missing shelves.
