Meyers – Briggs is the psychological assessment of preferences and of how people perceive the world and make decisions. It is used by businesses, corporations and universities for job placements and individuals for career / job changing decisions.
The Meyers –Briggs test has been used with great success for many years and is particularly useful today for individuals needing to make job changes. But, the full potential of this test has not been reached until now. Redeux Vintage Furniture is now using this assessment for many of the furniture pieces coning into the shop. That’s right; Redeux looks at the Big Picture!
Some furniture pieces, like people, are quite happy doing what they are doing. But, some want a career change or a change of scenery. Sometimes both. Take for instance the piece pictured at top. Once it was consigned to heavy duty use in a country kitchen in Maine. After applying the M-B test it indicated that it was ready to relocate and was open for a job change such as office work, assisting a writer or to again take up residence in a cozy kitchen but with folks that really appreciated it.
The Mission Desk also is benefiting from M-B. Once relegated to a school, this fellow is seeking something in a more genteel setting. Perhaps a university office or a home office or library would be more to his liking. He loves books.
Thanks to my friend Cheryl Schwartz for introducing me to Meyers- Briggs. I’ll bet she never considered its potential in furniture restoration!
Several folks that admired the small corner hutch we had a while back have asked me to try to find another. Here it is! It will work great in smaller dining rooms or kitchens for displaying your special pottery, cookbooks, etc.
A small rocker is now ready. This little guy has been hanging around the Redeux shop for a while, just begging for attention. It’s now available for a new home and would be ideal for more petite ladies or older children. This style rocker was originally used for quilters/sewers and/or mothers.
Several pieces are in the process of being painted. Redeux is experimenting with a new line of water-based and also a natural oil-based paint product. Stop by to see the work and the pieces now available.The above photo shows a re-worked table / bench that would be ideal for several uses including a display piece for collectibles, photos, plants, or to hold a t.v. or audio equipment. In the right setting it might also be a very interesting coffee type table. It will have a black painted top (first coat shown) and a natural finish on the legs and apron.
With Fall now here I am working as quickly as possible to catch up on furniture pieces folks have asked for as well as some pieces needing stripping. In addition to our Wednesday through Saturday hours, look for our “Rocking Chair” sign on the garage that indicates work is going on inside. Stop in!
Hope to see you again soon. Tea is always on.
