Dining Table

I had the opportunity to learn something new! My client loves her dining table, it belonged to her mother once apon a time. She was tired of the honey color stain. She purchased new chairs and wanted the table to match.

When receiving the table I quickly found out the top was formica made to look like wood. So it just couldn’t be stained. Not wanting to ruin my clients dreams of a different color stain I suggested we place a veneer over the existing top so we can stain it in any color.

Table Before

A few things that my client wanted to change was the wavey part of the table edge. She wanted to do without that and make it more modern and straight.

I have never added a veneer top so the challenge was welcoming. Don’t get me wrong, I was completely nervous! I had both my father and husband help me glue and place the veneer top on three different sections so we still had the leaf option. As well as making sure the wood grain matched up, after cutting the sheet down to size. I pulled out the old dowells that were broken in the leaf and replaced them to fix any gap problems when closing the table together.

New veneer!

She was coming along nicely! Once my clients chairs came in I ran over and picked one up to color stain match for that perfect finish.

Mixing a little of this and a little of that ๐Ÿ˜‰

Refinished in a solid sleek look using Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black for the base and stained the top in a custom smokey walnut stain. Same table, different look!!

Antique Trunk, Peter Rabbit

This gorgeous antique trunk used to be my clients grandmothers. The inside is laced with adorable Peter Rabbit fabric.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Cyberspace, Well-Bred Brown, Tin Lizzie and Dovetail. I did a blending video on Instagram! All the metal is revamped in Black. Don’t mind Miss Justice showing off her Vogue look ๐Ÿ˜‰

Seriously, I love her

Dining Table

Just in time for Thanksgiving! My client purchased this dining table from a boutique store and upon delivery the top was scratched badly.

My client reached out to me in hope to have her table fixed in time for Thanksgiving. I’m so grateful I was able to help! Matching the base of the piece, continuing with the same product as before, I used a black lacquer. Scratches and grooves were sanded out and a new coat was replaced. This table is heavy and huge, so my final pictures had to be in the shop.

TV Stand

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:ย 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! Theย 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.

Buffet TV unit

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.

Dresser and Nightstand

Seriously, the size isn’t justified in photos. These gals do have a brother that will be posted next week, a chest of drawers. For now, drool with me over these honeys!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and lightly distressed. My client wanted to keep the original hardware as is, just cleaned up.

2 Drawer Accent Leg Chest

A family heirloom received a Second Chance. This may be an Ethan Allen reproduction piece, but the memories and stories it holds for my clients’ family can’t possibly make that any less important. This beauty will be going to California as a Christmas Gift staying in the family for more generations to enjoy!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and lightly glazed in a grey. The top and drawer faces are done in a gloss finish while the body in a Matte finish. I love how these two different sheens look on the same color paint. Giving some depth and glam! Original hardware revamped in Nickel and glazed in Black for an antique feel.

Art Deco Vanity

I love these waterfall furniture pieces. This piece belongs to my Aunt. She had purchased this art deco vanity some time ago back in California at an antique shop. Finally ready to give her a Second Chance she decided on the classic stain and paint combo!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and distressed.  The top veneer on this vanity is stained in Dark Walnut. We updated the pulls with antique gold glass knobs from Hobby Lobby. I removed the back middle part where the mirror connected; as my Aunt didn’t want to use the original mirror. I think she looks fantastic!
