My client purchased this dining table back in 1953. It has lasted many years, giving many memories, but needed to be freshened up. I restored this table to its former glory for many more years to come! Oh- and just in time for my clients 90th birthday party!
I finally got my hands on this piano! My client had a color consult a few years back with me and kept her eyes on this refinishing dream. FINALLY! Finally I was able to make it a reality for her and her family. This piano came from a family member and was a little worn from the years.
Refinishing the base in Sherwin-Williams Ivory Lace and glazed in Tiki Hut. Hardware revamped in oil rubbed bronze. The old felt was torn and falling off, I added a different color, black, breathable screen like material to give her a more modern look!
A small dresser matching another small dresser that I refinished last year, see Small Dresser. Both these adorable dressers will be used as oversized nightstands!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Gauntlet Gray and glazed in a mixture of using both Tricorn Black and Pepercorn! Original hardware revamped in Black.
I finally finished up the last two chairs to my clients dining set. A total of six Antique Dining Chairs and I am happy to be finished. They turned out beautiful!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. My client picked out a cream and grey damask fabric from Joanns Fabric Store. Finally adding a dark grey cord to match and to finish them off!
A handmade wooden bench from New York found his way to Arizona! His owner moved here in the beginning of the year and wanted his front porch bench to have a new look. To help preserve the life of this wooden bench I stripped away the old sealant and stain. Restaining in Minwax Jacobean this NY bench is ready for his debut in Arizona!
Gorgeous antique buffet with the perfect curves. I love her legs and wanted to go bare with them! I absolutely love this look and hope you do as well!!
Created by Crawford Furniture Company No.1-B5 with an awesome original sticker on the back for verification.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and distressed for a farmhouse charm! Glazed certain areas in Anonymous for a added pop in the details and to help soften her look. The legs and top along with the backsplash are all sanded down and sealed for a bare wood look. Original hardware revamped in white and wet distressed for added character.

Although many of us are ready to say goodbye to 2020, I can’t help but reflect on the past year- despite the chaos- I did have a wonderful year. We were surrounded by our wonderful crew who kept us sane during such a weird time in not only the United States of America but the freaking WORLD!? My heart goes out to all of those who have been affected by the pandemic. For the family and friends you have lost- may you find peace. For those of you who have work so very hard on your business only for it to be dismantled abruptly- may you rebuild back bigger then ever! I implore YOU. Keep fighting. Stay Strong. Have faith!
Goodbye 2020! I made lovely creations for old clients as well as I got to meet some new customers! Refinishing a total of 64 pieces: 6 First Dibs, 2 pieces created with my mother, and the rest custom orders! YIPPEE! Thank you!
You are all truly amazing humans! Thank you for your support!

The first piece I created in 2020 was one I did with my mother. Maureen Flanigan used her creativity and painted a farm house by hand on an antique tall boy dresser. I have him placed in my home and view it daily. Completely in love by it still. The furniture pieces I created this year didn’t give me much trouble, or maybe perhaps I am gaining confidence. I’m not sure what to make of it, but I did enjoy each furniture piece and am incredibly grateful by all of them!
I didn’t set a goal for myself in 2020 which is rather odd. I have made goals for myself each year and did my best to fulfill each one of them and apply them to my life at home and at Second Chance Charms. I am NOT SAYING that the fate of the WORLD is on my shoulders, but I find it rather odd how our past year was basically a shit show and I didn’t have a goal…. ha ha I’m kidding- But just in case I better come up with a 2021 goal!.. because it seems rather coincidental 😉
I’m super excited for 2021 and growing Second Chance Charms. Modifying my creativity into something more. Pushing past mind barriers and really jumping in with both feet. Lets see what becomes of 2021!
Thank you again, for your continued support. having be apart of your homes and gifts for loved ones!
Much love, Becca
Thank you 2020!

A very plain Jane turned into a rustic Beauty. This sofa table had two glass panels on the top and my client asked that I put wood slats on the top to create a farmhouse feel as well as added support.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey and distressed for a farmhouse charm. The top I installed wood slats and stained them in Minwax Walnut.
One solid massive piece that I needed help moving around to refinish. Once I took off the doors and removed the shelves it lighten the load a little but still a heavy piece!
My client had her colors picked out when she dropped her hutch off and knew exactly what she wanted. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. Original hardware revamped in Black. Simple. Gorgeous.
