Sideboard

When you find the right sized piece for your home but don’t need the broke record player that’s in it, take it out and add a shelf! This perfect little record player stand has been upcycled and turned into a sideboard for my clients dining room.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and lightly distressed around the edges. The original hardware has been polished and cleaned for that vintage look.

Side note: Our newest member of the family is making her debut! I will try not to have her in all my photos, but, there is no guarantee! Meet Miss Justice, Second Chance Charms shop pup!

Antique Cabinet

This lovely antique cabinet came all the way from California for a Second Chance! Once belonging to my clients mother she finally wanted to give her a new look. Over time this piece started to have its wear and tear, as you can see in the before pictures, and needed some help!

Taking off the fabric backdrop and old veneer was a start! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Indigo Batik and glazed in brown. My client has the glass door fronts at home as well as the glass shelves. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in her space!

Retro Dresser and Nightstand

Last month I finished a retro nightstand, read here to view him: Retro Nightstand. I got my hands on the nightstands’ twin brother and his dresser. These pieces are such delicate items as their tops are a thin sheet of veneer. My client wanted them stained with a solid finished base. Sanding these tops are not only challenging but time consuming. One wrong move can destroy them. They have such a gorgeous design to them that needed to be showcased where the previous stain was too dark and hid their beauty.

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean and tops are stained in Armoire Hickory. Original hardware cleaned up. Stay tuned in for the matching mirror and armoire!

Do you recall the dining table and chairs that I refinished for my client not to long ago, click here to read about them: Dining Table and Chairs. To finalize my clients dining area the hutch was next on her list!

Garden Chairs

Sometimes when clients pick up pieces that I refinished for them they will drop off little decor items such as candle sticks, picture frames, mirrors and the like. Sometimes I will get bigger items like interior doors, lamps and in this case cute garden chairs.

My client picked out her colors and it was a simple request of a solid refinish. The chairs had been used outside for quite sometime and needed to be sanded down to get rid of the old chippy finish.

Refinished in a happy bright yellow and orange, these gals are ready to not only look great in my client’s garden area but have a lasting finish for outside durability.
