Dining Table

Love the butcher block! My client was ready to clean up her table top and have the chairs and base of this table in a solid sleek finish.

I sanded down the table top using three different sanding grits, from low to high to get a smooth glass feel and just sealed it to keep that beautiful neutral wood tone. Refinished the base in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound in a solid sleek look makes these pieces brand new once again.

Antique Secretary Desk

This little antique secretary desk belonged to my clients grandfather. She had fond memories of him sitting there doing his work when she was a child. My client aquired this desk some years ago and wanted to have it match with her master bedroom furniture.

Using this piece for a vanity she decided it needed to be a lovely artistic statement. Family heirlooms are my favorite!

My client matched her colors using Behr Paints color swatches and I had Sherwin-Williams color match those swatches in the products that I use. Refinished in Gem Silica, Honey Tea and Roasted Squash. The original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze. I refinished the inside of the desk in Gem Silica for a surprise POP of color. Using Honey Tea and Roasted Squash I did a blunt blending in a horizontal line that matches her bedroom furniture. Distressed the entire piece to help give a finish blend as well as tie this piece in with the other pieces this little lovie will be sharing space with.

Octagon End Tables

I had these awesome octagon end tables over In The Studio ready to be customized and a returning client picked them up.

She wanted a pop of color in her family room and I am so excited for her! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Cloudburst and glazed in Web Gray. Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Dining Chairs

Seven dining chairs and a table that I am head over heals for!! My husband loved this set so much that we decided to keep it and replace it with our old set.

I had this set in inventory ready to be customized posted In The Studio for a while with no takers. After walking by it for quite some time, I had an idea of how I wanted them to be refinished. Of course, I had all intentions on selling them. My husband was helping me move the set inside to be staged and he says to me, “oooh, we’re keeping this right?”… you can’t say that to me! So, stay tuned in, I will be redoing our farmhouse table and chairs and sending out First Dibs email (round oak table with a leaf to create an oval with six farmhouse X back chairs).

Refinishing the base of these chairs in a solid finish using Sherwin-Williams High Hide White (which matches my cabinets). I wanted the seats to be stained to match the table top. I used Minwax Weathered Teak in a clear base.

Antique Dining Table

Next up for this client is her dining table. You recall the buffet, hutch and chairs? I still have 2 more chairs to complete but at least I feel like we are getting somewhere with her dining area makeover! Slowly but surely!

This gorgeous set has two leafs that was also refinished, but wasn’t set up when we took pictures in her home. This table was too massive for me to move into my studio for staging, but seeing it all together with the other pieces in my clients home made me smile nonetheless!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. The top is stained in Minwax Weathered Teak.
