I got my hands on this stunning 1900’s antique dresser, sadly the original tiger wood faced drawers had seen better days. I ended up having to remove the old partly missing and very much chipped veneer and decided to give this beauty a true Second Chance! Changing directions from giving him a restoration I ended up wanting to see him in a green.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Oakmoss and heavily glazed in a dark brown slightly distressed in areas I saw fit for an aged look. Removing the original knobs and adding different pulls that I revamped in a Chestnut classed up this handsome fellow. I left his casters on, cleaned them up and refinished them in Chestnut as well for an overall makeover.
SOLD! A gorgeous farmhouse front bowed dresser! Perfect for any use such as a coffee bar, bedroom and or television unit.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dovetail and heavily distressed for a shabby look. Added new Brown Flourish Metal Knobs with Plates from Hobby Lobby to give her that lovely farmhouse charm. Perfect for any space!
Good bye 2019! WOW! Where do I start, this year I completed the least amount of projects, yet excelled on new techniques, and THAT is something I am so proud of! Refinishing a total of 52 pieces: 6 First Dibs, 4 pieces to complete our remodel in our home, and the rest custom orders!
Thank you! With all of my heart, thank you!

This past year my clients pushed my abilities; at times it was stressful, there were tears, fits, and doubts. Looking back I am so appreciative for the opportunity and knowledge I have gained, because of the trust you have in me I gain confidence. Blending was this past year’s trend and a few customers pushed my abilities. It’s only continuing into 2020 and I am looking forward to the art we will create!
If you recall my goal last year going into 2019 was FOCUS. Read post here: 2018 Portfolio. A huge part of this year’s total pieces being fewer than any other year, was in part because I DID focus on myself and my family. We entered new chapters in our lives and as a mother I enjoyed the time well spent this summer.
Looking back on 2019, we started the year off with our home renovations. Such an exciting time! We completely changed our look and had fun in the process. I redid some of my pieces, gained new pieces and overall made our house a home! This year my mother also joined in on the fun and completed 2 custom projects and one special dresser for me that I will be sharing at the beginning of the new year! Stay tuned in!
Thank you again, for your continued support, well wishes and allowing me to be creative on your goodwill finds, outdated pieces and or family heirlooms!

I’ve been busy playing and enjoying my last few weeks with my half day Preschooler before the Summer Loven goes full blast. August he starts Kindergarten, full day, and life as I know it will undoubtedly change. I will have all three boys in school and an empty house. Talk about excitment and sadness!!
The good thing for you, is I will be able to schedule more jobs and really set off on Second Chance Charms. The past 7 years has been wonderful! I have all of you to thank for that!! You have allowed me to be a stay at home mother while helping pay a bill or two. Thank you!
My grandmother found this piece for sale at Goodwill for me, when I picked it up I fell in love with her serpentine lines and the solidness of this piece. We were looking for something new to place under our TV in the family room since we are renovating the house.
I asked my husband what color and style he wanted and he told me he wanted a sleek black on black look. So that’s what I did for him!
Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black, stained the top in a brown. Revamped the original hardware in black.
Absolutely love how this bedroom set is turning out! Do you recall the nightstands and bedframe I refinished a few weeks back? I have two huge dressers to refinish to complete my clients master bedroom suite.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dovetail and Reposed Gray. Glazed using Black Fox. New hardware purchase from Hobby Lobby and revamped in nickel and black glaze for an added bling.

There is no line between fine art and illustration; there is no high or low art; there is only art, and it comes in many forms.

Looking back on 2018 I was able to finish my Boutique Room project, I was featured in The Happy Home Newsletter as well as Featured in VoyagePhoenix! Last year my goal was Illustration. I didn’t get to do videos (camera shy) but I did try to show tutorials via photos on Behind the Scenes Furniture Group on Facebook. This year I want to Focus. I want to focus on myself, my family and how this passion makes me incredibly happy and humbled.
Thank you for being apart of my journey, supporting my business and allowing me to do what I love!
