Antique Cabinet

This lovely antique cabinet came all the way from California for a Second Chance! Once belonging to my clients mother she finally wanted to give her a new look. Over time this piece started to have its wear and tear, as you can see in the before pictures, and needed some help!

Taking off the fabric backdrop and old veneer was a start! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Indigo Batik and glazed in brown. My client has the glass door fronts at home as well as the glass shelves. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in her space!

Retro Dresser and Nightstand

Last month I finished a retro nightstand, read here to view him: Retro Nightstand. I got my hands on the nightstands’ twin brother and his dresser. These pieces are such delicate items as their tops are a thin sheet of veneer. My client wanted them stained with a solid finished base. Sanding these tops are not only challenging but time consuming. One wrong move can destroy them. They have such a gorgeous design to them that needed to be showcased where the previous stain was too dark and hid their beauty.

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean and tops are stained in Armoire Hickory. Original hardware cleaned up. Stay tuned in for the matching mirror and armoire!

Garden Chairs

Sometimes when clients pick up pieces that I refinished for them they will drop off little decor items such as candle sticks, picture frames, mirrors and the like. Sometimes I will get bigger items like interior doors, lamps and in this case cute garden chairs.

My client picked out her colors and it was a simple request of a solid refinish. The chairs had been used outside for quite sometime and needed to be sanded down to get rid of the old chippy finish.

Refinished in a happy bright yellow and orange, these gals are ready to not only look great in my client’s garden area but have a lasting finish for outside durability.

Tv Entertainment Center

Turning a dresser into your tv unit never gets old! I found this piece and within an hour it was sold to one of my followers on Facebook for customization.

The friend I bought this from had taken the middle drawers out and painted it black. She used it for some time and reached out to me to see if I wanted to purchase it as she had got something new.

I added wood slates on the shelves to make them sturdier. As well as walls inside to finalize the piece. I moved the hardware holes to the middle knowing that this piece needed something heavy to make this piece unforgettable!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Mountain Stream and heavily glazed in a cream. We updated the hardware using Hobby Lobby brown metal knobs for a rustic chic look.
