This my latest Stickley inspired piece. All the sordid details may be found in my blog if anyone is interested in following along. Also, I will try to answer any questions. I apologize for the pic quality; it is really hard to find good help. :)

Thanks for looking!

Fantastic looking project. I’m so glad it came out well.
Now… lets talk about those pillows.

Superb! And here I thought you wouldn’t post it ;^)

The placement of the clamps with the zebra pillows lends a Serengeti feel to everything.
Great work Art, when do the side chairs and tables arrive?

That’s a great looking Stickley sofa! I’ll bet it’s a nice conversation starter! Now about those cushions…......

Thank you everyone. Dean, the cushions are the Bellagio model, style? from the Castelle Collections of the Pride Family Brands company and were purchased from Home Escapes in Herndon, VA. Willie, the pillows reflect Elizabeth’s fanatical adoration of all things zebra. Splinter, you are closer than you might have imagined. I am currently working on a small dining table for their porch. It is in walnut and will measure about 37” x 56”.They already bought the chairs, whew!!

This is all great fun and I still have a coffee table and foot stools on my list for them, not to mention the projects on my list for us. :)

Looks great all together and in its home.
Cushions pull it together.
What color dye did you use?

Again, thank you to all. Doug, I followed Jeff Jewitt’s “Oak Park” Stickley finishing schedule (see Sample #3) which is the most involved process I have ever used.

What’s the matter with the cushions??? I think they’re an excellent contrast to the darker wood, as I mentioned on your blog. Killer job Art! Well done.

Thank you, Bill & Mark. The cushions are fine, I just didn’t want to take any credit for them. :)
