Desk

Do you remember this lovely buffet I refinished back in 2017? Read up on her at https://secondchancecharms.com/2017/12/14/buffet-3/

My client wanted her desk to match the buffet since it’s going in the same room. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and lightly glazed in Turkish Coffee. The desk top stained in Minwax Early American.

Antique Hutch

FACT: Family heirlooms are special. I have refinished and restored many custom pieces throughout the years, however, family heirlooms are close to my heart.

I love restoring and refinishing these pieces for various reasons. The main one for me; YOU chose me to carefully re-love your piece. What an honor! I pride myself on wanting to not only make YOU proud of your heirlooms, but also your family members who are still with us today, as well as the original owners who are looking down from heaven. Trust me, the stories these pieces carry are tremendous, but giving them another page to their story is what makes them continued to be past down for more generations to enjoy!

This client piece was passed down from great grandmother, to grandmother, to mother and now to daughter. I cant express enough how beautiful that is in itself.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Cityscape. Glazed in Pepercorn. The inside and gorgeous legs have been stained in General Finishes Java.

Pedestal Pub Table

Love the mixture of both metal and wood on this pedestal pub table! My client is renovating her kitchen and wanted to restore her breakfast nook table to complement her new cabinets.

Before, the wood table top was stained with a red undertone. After years of use, and with the help of newly kitchen cabinets installation to knotty alder, my client wanted to change her pedestal pub table to a warm brown stain for contrast.

Refinished in Minwax Specail Walnut was the perfect stain for this project!

Antique Telephone Chair

Past down the generations my client wanted something special to be done to her antique telephone chair. She sent me a few pieces that she loved of mine that had the bohemian technique style. My mind started swirling!

Refinished the base in Sherwin-Williams Grays Harbor. Blending both Grays Harbor and Secret Cove only on the desk curved part, both front and back, and highlighting in Fleur de sel gave a dramatic effect. Excitingly, I found upholstery from Joanns in the same color as Fleur de sel for the chair cushion! Perfection!!!

I love how this antique telephone desk chair turned out!

Tall Dresser- Chest of Drawers

First piece for 2020! I absolutely love the lines and bones of this fellow when I picked him up. I had a vision of Maureen Flanigan’s acrylic art work of a farm using only a few colors. She did exactly what I wanted and more! You guest it, this is a piece I will be holding on to for a while!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Reflection and glazed in Gauntlet Gray. The original hardware is revamped in a pop of white. Maureen’s lovely hand painted acrylic art work of a barn with trees and greenery finishes this piece off nicely!

Dining Table

Just in time for Thanksgiving! My client purchased this dining table from a boutique store and upon delivery the top was scratched badly.

My client reached out to me in hope to have her table fixed in time for Thanksgiving. I’m so grateful I was able to help! Matching the base of the piece, continuing with the same product as before, I used a black lacquer. Scratches and grooves were sanded out and a new coat was replaced. This table is heavy and huge, so my final pictures had to be in the shop.
