Display Cabinet

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.

Recent Highlights October

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!

TV Entertainment Unit

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.

Rustic Wooden Desk

When grandpa builds a desk, you know it was done right! My clients grandfather built this desk over 40 years ago. When my client got her hands on it she brought this gem to me to be given a new look!

Refinished in Sher-Wood Dark Oak stain. She wanted a rustic technique done on this desk for her farmhouse charmed home, and that’s exactly what I did. Original pulls revamped in Bronze keeping this fellow original in honor of her grandfather.

2 Drawer Accent Leg Chest

A family heirloom received a Second Chance. This may be an Ethan Allen reproduction piece, but the memories and stories it holds for my clients’ family can’t possibly make that any less important. This beauty will be going to California as a Christmas Gift staying in the family for more generations to enjoy!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and lightly glazed in a grey. The top and drawer faces are done in a gloss finish while the body in a Matte finish. I love how these two different sheens look on the same color paint. Giving some depth and glam! Original hardware revamped in Nickel and glazed in Black for an antique feel.
