Buffet by Collezione Europa

Love the curves of this piece! My client liked how it was originally but wanted to get rid of the flowers and have the stain be more of an espresso rather then a light brown.

I got my hands on General Finishes gel stain and knew this product would be my best bet on making this piece look stained without having to sand down the entire piece.

Painting the outside base in Sherwin-Williams Java for a wood color to give my gel stain a base to work with was the first step. I refinished the inside of the unit in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black per my clients request. Adding multiple layers of General Finishes gel stain in Java, building up layers, creating definition like wood grain was a fun process. Once cured I glazed the entire piece in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn black to darken the stain and to glaze in all of the nooks and crannies to make more of an impact in the lines.

My client is getting new knobs, but in the meantime I revamped the hinges in Black and left the original knobs for my staged photos.

Small Buffet

When a piece has been in the family for a long time and doesn’t match your decor, giving it a Second Chance is the perfect opportunity to make everyone fall in love all over again! My clients’ husband never cared for this piece, but he knew the importance of it to his wife. Today, I was able to make everyone happy with their family heirloom!

Refinished in Sherwin William’s Black Fox and glazed in Tricorn Black. Updated the hardware with these light grey and black knobs from Hobby Lobby.

French Provincial Hutch

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!

Piano

I have my first piano in the books! I am not only excited about adding this type of furniture to my portfolio, but really happy my client wanted her piece to be glazed, giving this antique girl a sense of timeless glam. All the curves, grooves and details are highlighted now, where once they were hidden.

The back story of this family heirloom is beautiful in itself. My clients grandmother was given this piano at the age of three years old. Many years of practice, hard work and enjoyment were given to her. After her recent passing this grandmother wanted her piano to go to her granddaughter who is five years old. My clients daughter picked out the fabric and Mom picked out the color.

As you enter my clients home this gorgeous piano will be welcoming you underneath a lovely chandelier.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Serious Gray. Glazed in Tricorn Black. All original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze. Bench reupholstered in my clients choice of vibrant fabric.

Even though these nightstands do not match in structure, having them refinished in the same style sets them off to be a set. French Provincial his and her nightstands along with a tall chest of drawers dresser.

Antique Round Pedestal Side Table

Back in August I refinished a dining table for my client’s mother. This month I received the pedestal side table to that set.

My client wanted them to match. During his travels the side table broke his leg and my client thought all was lost. As long as she had his foot- I could fix him!
