A lot of the work is done by hand because the Amish traditions forbid use of mechanical tools. This means that the process of furniture making is largely done using old fashioned tools and the finishing in particular, is done by hand. The sanding and polishing is done by hand as the master craftsmen of yore would have done it.
A simple way to improve antique pieces of furniture, such as a chest of drawers, is to fit new handles. The Victorians had a habit of replacing metal handles with round wooden knobs, often leaving the marks of the former back-plates showing. Sets of old handles can be picked up cheaply from antique and second-hand shops but make sure that the back-plates are large enough to cover any existing indentations.Arranging furniture the correct way is not a childs play. It requires attention to detail and thorough research before finalizing one. An empty room or house can be either an opportunity or a challenge for the decorator. With so many choices in hand at such great prices, one can easily be confused and pick something beautiful yet meaningless for the dcor.
Furniture was still unadorned and somewhat bare during this period. Instead of ornate chairs and tables, people preferred to show their opulence and extravagance through their tapestries, carpets, fine linen, needlework, embroidered cushions, silk hangings and brass or pewter cups.
She asked me to help her decorate the house as she doesnt like her husbands taste in anything. She is dragging me to choose the furniture for the house, I feel bad that her husband will have no say on anything that happens in the house.
