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!
First piece for 2020! I absolutely love the lines and bones of this fellow when I picked him up. I had a vision of Maureen Flanigan’s acrylic art work of a farm using only a few colors. She did exactly what I wanted and more! You guest it, this is a piece I will be holding on to for a while!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Reflection and glazed in Gauntlet Gray. The original hardware is revamped in a pop of white. Maureen’s lovely hand painted acrylic art work of a barn with trees and greenery finishes this piece off nicely!
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Thank you again, for your continued support, well wishes and allowing me to be creative on your goodwill finds, outdated pieces and or family heirlooms!
My client enjoys her vacation cruises, so much so that she buys a piece of art from her many travels on ship. She wanted her bedroom dresser to resemble her found memories, so Maureen Flanigan put her artistic touch on her dresser.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Forever Lilac and lightly distressed for a beach feel. Added new hardware from Hobby Lobby, jute wrapped metal pulls. Acrylic hand painted nautical themed by Maureen using a verity of colors.
Oh my heart!! The colors! All of this I just love!! When I visited my client for her color consultation she had a vision of how she wanted her family room pieces to look. Grey with a dark top to tie in her dark and dreamy kitchen. When verifying with her husband he mentioned a piece that he absolutely loved from my webpage: Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor
Another piece close to my heart that I really enjoyed doing. I looked over my shoulder and saw a painting hanging on the wall above their couch. I quickly pointed and said “we can use these colors!”
The excitement gained way and my mind was swirling! She ending up changing her original idea to a better one! The End Tables, I posted yesterday were grey and black glaze to tie in with this statement piece, making them still a matching set but with a lot more BOOM! This TV stand came out exactly how I envisioned!
Using Sherwin-Williams Tin Lizzie as our grey base I blended Jade Dragon, Interesting Aqua and Peppercorn. Glazing the unit in Tricorn Black to match the end tables which blended these three pieces together nicely. The top is Tin Lizzie just like the end tables. I added a pop of Sunny Veranda for an added artistic vibe. Changed out the hardware with white distressed grey knobs from Hobby Lobby.
How adorable is this custom antique side table? Irish I had one! (Haha, enjoy my humor!). Refinished in a custom color that I blended using two different greens and a brown creating a gorgeous forest green. Glazed the base in brown. Stained the top in Sherwood Chestnut. Handpainted clovers and flowers by Maureen Flanigan.
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.
I’d like to think I saved this glorious gal from the dump. Her veneer was peeling, she lost most of her original hardware and she was in overall really bad shape. I gave her a second chance and I am absolutely in love with how she turned out! Not only that, but she is available for purchase! Check out Shop Selections for details!
After scrapping off her veneer, filling in all areas with wood filler, adding a new top, sanding and proper prep this beauty is ready to showcase her new look! A French provincial style hutch refinished in a dark gray using Sherwin-Williams Rock Bottom. Heavily glazed in Tricorn Black. Inside, backing and shelves are refinished in Snowbound White. Hardware revamped in Black and heavily antiqued in White for an added pop!
If you are living in the Valley of the Sun like myself, you are probably staying inside as much as possible. YES… things are melting out here in Arizona! It has been so incredibly hot this summer! I am getting a lot of concerns as to what time I do my work, and if I am staying hydrated from my thoughtful clients. I swear- you guys are the sweetest! My family and I are keeping cool in our pool as well as getting out of town as much as we can and heading north to the family cabin to escape the heat. I have been doing all of my work in the early hours in the mornings before the sun can make things unbearable.
In June there were some amazing pieces that were completed for both customers and inventory. As always please email, text or call me for a quote! Remember to get yourself on the First Dibs Email to be notified first on available pieces. Let’s take a look at what was completed for the month of June.
