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: 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.

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!

It isn’t everyday I get to play in purple paint, having a bright bold color to work with was exhilarating. When I delivered the shelves, it was then I got to see the full effect of how they look on the metal stand. I couldn’t be happier! Finally, four custom dining chairs, brightly finished and reupholstered.
