In love. I believe that I am known for glazing, and these last four projects that I refinished are either solid finish or distressed. I enjoyed myself regardless and I hope you can admire the beauty each of these pieces have!
I love the pop of color my client chose to have this little antique humidor stand refinished in. Its a small statement piece that will open many conversations, I am sure! I had this little fellow up over at In the Studio for customization and he eventually found his home. Work was needed to bring this antique humidor stand back to his glory. He was missing a few wooden details so molding and casting were needed.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams African Violet and glazed in black to pop out all the details this humidor stand has. Added a new black metal flower knobs from Hobby Lobby to finalize this handsome guy.
Most recent projects! If you missed any of these beauties, please scroll though and check them out! I got to refinish my first antique record player cabinet (I am not counting the famous Victrola because there were no insides to that piece just his amazing shell- Click 2015 Portfolio to view him- He is the 1st one on the 2nd row). As well as I got to do a new refinishing style- the Dipped Look, on an adorable french provincial nightstand! Check out Refinished Styles as I added this neat style for you to choose from. Of course we can’t forget that navy armoire with those amazing handles! Last but defiantly not least, a sweet bookcase that was built by my clients father many years ago when he was a young boy.
A bookcase that was built by my clients father when he was younger was brought in for a Second Chance. She wanted the backdrop to pop against the white and to have it match the bed frame and dresser I refinished for her back in 2015.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dover White. The backing is Sherwin-Williams Black Fox and Glazed in Tricorn Black.
I’m super excited to share this piece! My friend got this antique record stereo cabinet from a family member and has plans on fixing up the insides and making it work! Until then she wanted the outside refinished and looking chic in her space.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and distressed for a perfect shabby chic feel. Original knobs cleaned.

Refinished in a Navy blue and original hardware updated in gold for a nice pop! The body and top have been distressed in the natural wear and tear areas. This piece has a small crack and chip. This is the first piece where I left her as is, instead of fixing and covering her stories, I chose to leave them hoping that someone will love it as much as I do!
Second Chance Charms completed one hundred and fifty-four pieces of furniture and charms for the year 2016, both custom projects for clients and inventory selections that were sold! MEEEP!
Thank you. Thank you!
To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong
Looking back at my 2015 Portfolio confidence was my 2016 goal for SC Charms as well as in my personal life. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. I grew as a women through God, my family and my clients this year. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses. When you finally accept everything you are, and aren’t, you will truly succeed.
I can look back on 2016 with pride, honor and happiness. SC Charms was Featured in Phoenix Magazine as well as Featured in The Chippy Barn Instagram Inspiration Guide. I completed goals that I had planned for myself, such as focusing some of my energies on my blog/ website. Sharing tutorials and How-To’s…. okay, I only did a few, but that’s a start! Trying new techniques like dry brushing and acid washing a mirror. But more importantly, I had courage, integrity and confidence in all that I did. I didn’t waver. I didn’t hesitate. I inhale confidence. I exhale doubt.
So what’s next for SC Charms, you ask?
My goal this next year is to inspire creativity. There are many ideas surfacing for 2017. New plans being created that I am so very fortunate to be apart of. I am looking forward to a very exciting 2017!
