Recent Highlights February

Ended February with a bang! Chairs for a salon, a baby changer for a nursery, and two dressers.

Dresser

Picked up this guy at a non planned garage sale find. What happened was the kids and I were on our way to go grocery shopping on a Saturday morning when my eldest son, Connor, spotted the “garage sale” signs (he is the best look out man I could ask for!). I was excited to see this one for sale and quickly purchase him. I had him up for customization, after about a week of staring at him in the shop I knew what I wanted to do, and being that no one had claimed him, I went ahead and finished him.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound, both glazed in brown and distressed. Original hardware updated in bronze. Stained the top in Dark Oak. He quickly found a home!

Waterfall Dresser

I love doing giveaways to show my appreciation!  I thought this waterfall dresser would be the perfect giveaway for my social media accounts to say how thankful I am to have the support and encouragement from my followers, fans and clients – plus I have a soft spot for waterfalls. I was given this fellow from a follower of mine. It use to be her grandfathers. I refinished him in Sherwin-Williams Gale Force and stained the top and first drawer in Early American. I used a technique called ‘dry brushing’ the paint, Gale Force, lightly through the top to create a rustic look. Updated the original gold pulls to bronze. When I showed my client the new and approved Waterfall she had showed her dad the pictures. Right away he responded with purchasing it. He thought this old guy was too far gone form second chances. How could I say no to the man whose father used to use this dresser. He had memories of playing by it as a small boy. So my rustic waterfall went back home to write more pages in his book! Back to looking for another piece to giveaway.

Baby Changer

I had previously refinished a dresser and my girlfriend bought it for her baby’s nursery. She picked up this changer from a garage sale and wanted it to match the piece I had refinished. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black. The drawer faces papered using a black and white stripped design. Finished off this look with antique porcelain white knobs.
