Second Chance Charms can create your statement piece! I am always learning new techniques and finishes to apply on my pieces. Here is a list of what I am capable of doing. If there is a style that you have seen and would like completed on your piece that I don’t have here in my styles, please send me an inspirational photo and I would love to brush right in!!! (See what I did there… ) Staining, Solid Finish, Distressed Finish, Glazed Finish, Chippy Finish, Crackle Finish, Two Toned Finish, Papered, Dry Brush and the Dipped Look.
There are MANY different color stains I can do! Weathered, white wash, any shade of browns, greys, whites, and even colors such as blue!
Solid Paint Finish
Solid finishes are perfect for a clean sleek modern look!
Distressing is where the underneath wood comes through the paint. I seal that wood with wax which brings out the natural color of the wood. Perfect for little busy kids and pieces that will have a lot of use.
Glaze is perfect to get into all those nooks and crannies. Making a soft appearance or striking and bold. Perfect for a pop in detail and creating a statement in your space! I can glaze in ANY COLOR, even white! My most popular colors to glaze in are brown, black and grey. I always start out light and keep adding layers to make it heavy if that is what you want!
Chippy and or Crackle Finish
A Chippy finish is perfect for an aged look! Chips can be colored as well, not just using the wood color tones underneath. We can do big chips or small, weather aged or solid color.
Two toned with paint and stain is a great masculine style. We could also use two different colors of paint and distress. I have done Ombre pieces as well (Many shades of the same color paint or stain) we don’t just have to use just 2 colors!
Papered Furniture makes a statement in itself! We can paper anywhere! Tops of pieces, drawer faces, inside the drawers as liner, or removing drawers making a shelf and lining that with paper…
I like to use one main color for the base and add one or more colors in a dry brush technique to offer another look. This style is great for pieces of furniture that are plain amd have no details. Offering a crosshatch brush technique gives dimension to a flat surface.
The dipped look is fabulous! You can dip anything in any color or stain. I love the clean crisp line of the dip. It can be used on old vintage furniture or on new modern styles for an updated look!
Mix and Match!!!

1. Glaze, Distressed and Stained
2. Distressed and Stained
