This transformation rocks, my clients were over the original finish and plain look of this piece. They wanted change!
This curio cabinet has been revamped in a solid finish using Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and added iron pipe hardware. I also added brackets on the corners of the piece for more character. There are glass shelves for the inside of this piece that my clients held onto. I cant wait to see how she decorates her curio cabinet.
I know. I know. Christmas is here??! Where did the time go? Before I start hyperventilating lets take a moment and enjoy what November has brought! I was able to get two inventory pieces in over at Shop Selections and, I got busy with some amazing client pieces! Lets take a quick peak at what was completed!
So much COLOR!!! I am completely over the moon with all these beautiful pieces! I love growing my portfolio- Its the next best thing to not being able to KEEP all of them! Thank you for allowing me to give a Second Chance to these forgotten Charms.
Be happy about what you have.
Be excited about what you want.
How many of you can relate by having a Goal Check List? We believe it to be a great thing~ healthy even! If you don’t do it, this 2018 New Year is a perfect time to start doing so! My husband and I will write down the things we want to accomplish for the year: Personal goals. Our family goals. Household upgrades. etc. Once you write down these “goals”, it makes it easier to work towards them. When you check your goal off your list the feeling of accomplishment is wonderful and you are ready to gear up for the next thing to tackle!
One of my goals for Second Chance Charms is to have a Shop Renovation! This took time but well worth it in the end! Before my garage was a chaotic mess that I was not only consistently embarrassed by when clients would come over to Drop off/ Pick up their pieces, but the lack of organization was nerve-racking during the refinishing process.
A few of the items on my check list for this Shop Renovation were:
Cabinets- Let face it I needed storage for all of my supplies.
Sink- As crazy as that sounds Yes. I have completely ruined my sink in my house. You bet your bottom Kitchen Renovation is on my 2018 List 😉
Electrical outlets and lighting- My garage has ONE outlet for me to use. I have dealt with this craziness for five years. Enough. And of course LIGHTING is key!
Here are a few of the progress pictures I have. There are few things that need to be done- but all cosmetic. I can finally work in a safe, organized, happy environment!
I would still like to paint the ceiling- Yes my OCD doesn’t only reflect on my furniture pieces but as well as in my life all around!
Here is a final photo of what I have going on today- I still have lighting to install in the ceiling as well as finish up the outlets on the right side of the wall. Nevertheless, I am still so excited to share this with you!
“How important is excitement to happiness? The key is to get excited about the mundane — not just extraordinary things”.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate yummy food with wonderful people! My family had a very Thankful holiday!
I love when furniture pieces are constructively designed in a 360 degree manner. This end table can be placed anywhere in your home and no matter which direction you are looking at it- its gorgeously refinished! I had found this handsome fellow at one of my random run ins from a Friday garage sale hunt after dropping the boys off at school. I knew what I wanted to do with him!
Yellow mellow and a perfect friendly fellow! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Butternut. Distressed to perfection for the farmhouse chic look. Original pull revamped in oil rubbed bronze.
He is available for purchase- Click over to Shop Selections to view details!
This piece has been in my clients family for well over 100 years. They even restored this lovely gem at one point. Ready for a change and entrusting me with the task I was excited to get my little hands on her!
I had just completed refinishing my clients daughters TV entertainment unit and hutch when they realized what paint and glaze can do to a piece of furniture.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Westhighland White. Glazed in Turish Coffee brown to pop out her details. Stained the top in Dark Walnut. Revamped the original hardware, key included, in oil rubbed bronze. Lovely!
Occasionly clients will ask me to refinish little décor pieces, this current client came to me to have a bathroom shelf refinished as well as some hardware that she’s putting on a dresser. I love her idea of what she wanted for the hardware keeping the handle pulls original but the backing in a custom navy blue color. Shelf refinished in a blue color match and updating the knob with a white and gold feather. Matching an armoire that I refinished some time ago. Before:
