Tabletops, Tabletops-Segreto Loves Tabletops!

Jun 18, 2018

Hi Friends!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day!!  We were lucky enough to have two of the three with us yesterday for John’s favorite–steak!  We have some fun projects to show you this week!!

Daughter Kirby is busy creating her unique Lucite bases with our SegretoStone tops!!  This one’s new home is in a breakfast room for one of my favorite clients!! Recently moving, she wanted to mix in some more modern elements with her antique furnishings.

This is a shot of her past home. See those incredible chairs from her dining room?  This home in which we collaborated with design firm Creative Tonic was featured in its entirety in Segreto Style.  Sweet Melissa, the homeowner, was so happy she had a bound version of her past home as a keepsake!! It is beautiful and the project was a super fun one.

Coincidentally, when the home sold, Designer Meg Lonergan hired our team to create a different backdrop for what she had envisioned.  This is the same dining room reinvented right before the new homeowners moved in.  I do love the waxed plaster ceiling with those amazing contemporary fixtures!! The ceiling is a mint green. I can’t wait to see the furnishings!!

Now…………let’s see how those French beauties look around a contemporary table.

A totally new perspective and a beautiful combination!!

Beautiful Dining room? Absolutely!  We plastered it for these homeowners about 10 years ago.  Since, Julie has turned more transitional vs traditional in her style, she felt her dark stained table didn’t work as well with her new furnishings.  Sooooooo we were called in to lighten it up.

What a major transformation and I really love how now you can see the grain more.  We stripped and bleached this table to bring back the natural wood tone and then applied a milky wash a top to counteract the yellow tones and give it an aged patina!!

A whole new look to this room!!

Here is the before and after!  If you do like the before, no worries this can be stripped and re-stained just like it was before.

They are just moving in so the space isn’t fluffed yet, but we were so excited that Elizabeth Garrett Interiors chose our SegretoStone top for her new offices that we couldn’t wait to share!! I just checked out her new website and she has some beautiful work.  It’s a treat to take a peak!!!

Elizabeth has been a SegretoStone enthusiast since she specified our product for this 20ft. by 8 ft. seamless island she did for a lux showcase home with Cupic Custom Homes!!

This is a picture we took right after install!  Now designer Jennifer Barron can finish the room.  A table this size, with a concrete core would weigh about 1400 lbs.!  We tried our process over a different substrate which made this table moveable!!  We are so excited about it that we are trying many more applications–this week I got a new door in my office–  blush pink SegretoStone! The possibilities are endless!  What Tables do you have that could use a bit of Segreto magic?

A bit off topic but I wanted to share what my daughter had sent me Sunday from church.  This is such a wonderful reminder that we are all Gods creations, and all equal in his eyes.  Many immigrants are kind, hardworking, wonderful people who contribute to our society in a positive way. They are children, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters. I hope we all will remember that each of our families came from different countries with diverse backgrounds and keep kindness, empathy and humanity in our heart when dealing with the issues of today.

I hope each of you have a wonderful wonderful week!!  Till next time!  xo Leslie

    Not all foreigners are illegal aliens.
    Not all foreigners broke our laws getting here.
    We do not have open borders.
    People should be treated with respect and so should our laws.

    Hello Leslie,
    I really love the waxed plaster ceiling! Our house is 10 years old now
    and the ceiling has some small poked holes in it from nails that have
    moved and are poking through a little. If you plaster a ceiling, will
    that happen, and you have to just touch it up, or do you have to
    replaster the ceiling?
    Thank you,

      Hi Cathy! Nail pops are due to the house shifting and will happen on any sheet rocked surface. I wouldn’t repair it until you have to but typically it can be touch up!! Hope you are having a good start of your week.

    Hi Leslie,

    I absolutely love Kirby’s Lucite table base with your SegretoStone top featured in the blog. It’s gorgeous – so unique, and I’m sure, knowing you, the perfect tabletop material for dining. I want one. Cheers to both of you!
