I am so excited to finally get to my 100th piece of refinished furniture year to date! This year I have had the pleasure to refinish many huge pieces that had anywhere from three upwards to six individual sections to create one gorgeous piece of furniture. Naturally I didn’t include those individual items, but rather counted each piece as a whole.
Browsing through my Portfolio I can’t help but be smitten from all the lovely creations- most of them client own pieces. Not only did I pour my sweat, heart and soul in each one; creating the image that each client had for their particular piece has always been a rewarding adventure.
Without further adieu let me introduce to you my 100th piece of furniture for 2017!!! An antique buffet my client has brought to Arizona from Denver. Back in her day this gal had tall legs, they were cut down about forty years ago so this piece could be used as a chest. But before the sensation swept the nation with using amazing statement pieces for Tv Entertainment Units, my clients family did just that and has many memories with this piece throughout the years. After my clients mother’s’ passing, she inherited her old friend and had Second Chance Charms refinish her so she could match her home decor and style. Wonderful past memories and making future ones to come- this gal gets to keep going looking better than ever!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Whirlpool for a soothing pop of color. Glazed in Well-Bred Brown to show off all the glorious details this gal has to offer. Stained her lovely top in Dark Walnut for some originality. finished her off with cleaning up her hardware and keeping the original pitia as much as possible.
What wonderful pieces! Although three of these beauties are custom owned pieces, there is one that is available for purchase! Click over to Shop Selections for details!
Oh how I have missed the keys of my computer. This morning I sat down drinking my pumpkin spice coffee enjoying the gorgeous cool morning Arizona breeze on my patio, I realized that I have not posted in 12 days.
That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t working- oh how I am excited to share with you some new pieces that were transformed! Most of my time was taken up by a massive Tv Entertainment Unit for a client.
After a horrible house fire, my client was able to save some of her items. Now that her house is being rebuilt she figured now was the perfect time to start fresh with her style and decor. Here is a before picture of her unit!
This unit was too big to fit in my studio for staging. So I waited patiently on pins and needles today waiting for photos from my client to share! I did my best taking some in my home to share, but it just wasn’t the same. I finally got her photos and I am sharing now! Oh my heart! I’m so in love!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Took out the glass doors and added chicken wire for a Farmhouse Chic look. Revamped all original hardware and chicken wire in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
I have refinished a couple dining tables that is this style; a sleek and simple design. To give something depth when there is none, especially on the legs of this piece, distressing and or glazing is always a great way to give definition.
Refinished the base and legs of this dining table in Dunn Edwards Pebble Walk and glazed in a dark brown. The top is finished in Sherwin Williams Rockweed.
I received this fellow from a friends mother who no longer had use for this massive bed frame. When I went to go pick him up I envisioned chippy white farmhouse perfection. But then I thought to myself- This would be the perfect piece to try Whitewashing! I am so happy I went with my gut- as scary as it was to try it- I believe she turned out absolutely lovely!!!
This queen bed frame is available for purchase. You can view his details over at Shop Selections.
My client received this dresser from a friend for free! What better way to make it your own then by getting it refinished to match your decor!?
Transformed in a solid sleek finish using Sherwin-Williams Snowbound. Updated the hardware using artistic handmade glass knobs.
I enjoy looking back at what was completed recently. I hope you do too! As always, if you missed any of these lovely debuts click over and view them!
I was tagged in a facebook post from a neighbor about someone looking for a furniture refinisher for her projects. As I was talking with my new client about her options for her television entertainment unit she mentioned wanting to get a hutch done as well. She found a hutch very fast and decided to start with that project first. A vintage french provincial style china cabinet by Fancher.
She sent me her inspirational photos and basically gave me free range. Oh my stars- I was thrilled! I knew from the moment I saw her when she came into my shop she needed to be glazed, not distressed, for a timeless- classic look.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Original hardware and door wire revamped in bronze. The top of the dresser is stained in Dark Walnut for added gorgeous flair! It will be hard to part with her. I am so thankful my new client allowed me to give this gal a Second Chance!
