Small Buffet

When a piece has been in the family for a long time and doesn’t match your decor, giving it a Second Chance is the perfect opportunity to make everyone fall in love all over again! My clients’ husband never cared for this piece, but he knew the importance of it to his wife. Today, I was able to make everyone happy with their family heirloom!

Refinished in Sherwin William’s Black Fox and glazed in Tricorn Black. Updated the hardware with these light grey and black knobs from Hobby Lobby.

Farmhouse dresser by Bassett Furniture

“Steady as a clock, busy as a bee, and cheerful as a cricket” -Martha Washington. This detailed dresser by Bassett Furniture is refinished in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey and blended with white. Distressed for a farmhouse charm and glazed in brown to pop out all the nooks and crannies! Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

This lovely lady was in my inventory and I painted her up how I saw fit. First Dibs Email went out on Saturday and she sold within minutes!

Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor

I am so excited to share this piece built by Link-Taylor! I had it available for customization over at In the Studio and a returning client got her hands on her. When we were discussing ideas I was so thrilled to do something bright, bold and bohemian! This piece will be in her art studio as the center of attention!

She chose the colors Sherwin-Williams Jamaica Bay, Brave Purple and Solaria. I blended the blue and purple in different areas and added yellow as an accent color. Next, I glazed her in brown to bring all these brilliant colors together for a flawless look. Lastly, adding a mix and match of gorgeous knobs from Hobby Lobby to complete her bohemian style.

I really enjoyed this process, its very freeing and forgiving. With no rules, anything goes and I was able to just put myself out there artistically. I hope you love her as much as my client and myself do!

Antique Folding Chair

I love this little folding chair! Even more so the story behind it. My client was out walking her pup and noticed a neighbor throwing this chair out into the trash. She stopped him and ask if she could have it. He replied with “it’s broken, are you sure?”…

“I have a girl who can fix it!” She tells him.

So here we are, fixed his leg and replaced the screws. Refinished him using Sherwin-Williams Black Fox and lightly distressing him. Added a new print fabric that my client picked out. She gave this fellow a second chance, literally saving him from the trash!
