Second Chance Charms had a wonderful 2018 year! Refinishing a total of 78 pieces, fifteen of them were inventory selections and one donation piece! This year brought welcomed challenges and some old family heirlooms! Thank you!… More
I’d like to think I saved this glorious gal from the dump. Her veneer was peeling, she lost most of her original hardware and she was in overall really bad shape. I gave her a second chance and I am absolutely in love with how she turned out! Not only that, but she is available for purchase! Check out Shop Selections for details!
After scrapping off her veneer, filling in all areas with wood filler, adding a new top, sanding and proper prep this beauty is ready to showcase her new look! A French provincial style hutch refinished in a dark gray using Sherwin-Williams Rock Bottom. Heavily glazed in Tricorn Black. Inside, backing and shelves are refinished in Snowbound White. Hardware revamped in Black and heavily antiqued in White for an added pop!

Ended October with painted goodness! Which one is your favorite piece? If you missed out on any of these debuts, you can always click over and read all about them! Three custom pieces and a bedroom set from inventory that sold within an hour of posting on Facebook!
No matter the size, you can still make a statement! Custom small display cabinet refinished in Sherwin-Williams Creamy and glazed in brown. Original hardware cleaned.
We lost count on the number of pieces I have done for this client, not to mention for her parents and her friends. Word of mouth is the best compliment you can give! When a neighbor, friend or family member is visiting your home and states they love your *insert piece of furniture* and you have nothing but wonderful things to say about your Second Chance Charms piece- I seriously am on Cloud Nine.
Over 90% of my clientele are referrals and the things they tell me, you say about working with me, or how your expectations were reached and then some, I smile from ear to ear and tears fill my eyes. I can not express how touched I am that you love something that I created with my hands, heart and soul. I am YOUR biggest fan!!! Thank you!!!
We are finally getting to my lovely clients Display Cabinet in her house of Second Chance Charms. I can’t help but laugh- when she called me she said “I want to go blue”. There was a short pause on the line. She HATES blue. Of course she assured me that the blue she is going for is Frank Sinatra blue. I love her ideas and her colorful home.
Refinished in a custom color mix by me using three different shades of Sherwin-Williams blues, I will call it ‘Frank Sinatra Blue’. Glazed in Brown and hardware revamped in champagne bronze.
My favorite gray colors came together and I couldn’t be happier!

The main base color is Sherwin-Williams Dovetail Gray and the lighter gray color is Reposed Gray. Glazed in Black Fox (which is a darker gray color). Original hardware revamped in Nickel and glazed in Black for an added POP of beauty!
I forgot to share my most recent projects! Which one was your favorite? Five inventory pieces sold within hours of posting on Facebook! And two beautiful custom pieces were refinished. If you missed out on any of these debuts you can always read all about them, here on the Blog!
There is a number of reasons why I love refinishing and restoring family heirlooms, hand-me-down furniture and grandpa’s builds. One reason, these pieces have significant meaning to my clients. Memories of the family get togethers around a dining table, a daughter inheriting her beloved mothers bedroom set after passing or simply a piece that someone in the family built by hand. You entrust me with these special pieces and I am absoutley honor to give them a Second Chance!
I have done a bedroom set for this client a couple years back and she finally got her hands on her aunts TV entertainment unit and wanted a fresh look.
This huge massive Tv Entertainment Unit has a top as well that I couldn’t put up by myself, nor place this entire four piece set in my staging area for a true picture. Nonetheless, I am completely over the moon with how she turned out!
Refinished in multiple different coats of Sher-Wood Dark Oak and a custom Grey stain. We added black rustic metal half moon pulls for an updated look, taking off glass doors and bottom doors for a more modern open concept.
