Display Cabinet

We lost count on the number of pieces I have done for this client, not to mention for her parents and her friends. Word of mouth is the best compliment you can give! When a neighbor, friend or family member is visiting your home and states they love your *insert piece of furniture* and you have nothing but wonderful things to say about your Second Chance Charms piece- I seriously am on Cloud Nine.

Over 90% of my clientele are referrals and the things they tell me, you say about working with me, or how your expectations were reached and then some, I smile from ear to ear and tears fill my eyes. I can not express how touched I am that you love something that I created with my hands, heart and soul. I am YOUR biggest fan!!! Thank you!!!

We are finally getting to my lovely clients Display Cabinet in her house of Second Chance Charms. I can’t help but laugh- when she called me she said “I want to go blue”. There was a short pause on the line. She HATES blue. Of course she assured me that the blue she is going for is Frank Sinatra blue. I love her ideas and her colorful home.

Refinished in a custom color mix by me using three different shades of Sherwin-Williams blues, I will call it ‘Frank Sinatra Blue’. Glazed in Brown and hardware revamped in champagne bronze.

Double Pedestal Desk

I needed color in my life, and I needed it fast! With summer at an end and school has begun I still think about our vacation to California and the gorgeous beaches. Using the ocean as an inspiration I wanted to do something special with one of my inventory pieces.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Honeycomb, Freshwater and Rainstorm using a blending technique. Glazed in black for a deep vintage look. Original hardware revamped in gold and glazed in black.

Antique Cabinet

This lovely antique cabinet came all the way from California for a Second Chance! Once belonging to my clients mother she finally wanted to give her a new look. Over time this piece started to have its wear and tear, as you can see in the before pictures, and needed some help!

Taking off the fabric backdrop and old veneer was a start! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Indigo Batik and glazed in brown. My client has the glass door fronts at home as well as the glass shelves. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in her space!

Tv Entertainment Center

Turning a dresser into your tv unit never gets old! I found this piece and within an hour it was sold to one of my followers on Facebook for customization.

The friend I bought this from had taken the middle drawers out and painted it black. She used it for some time and reached out to me to see if I wanted to purchase it as she had got something new.

I added wood slates on the shelves to make them sturdier. As well as walls inside to finalize the piece. I moved the hardware holes to the middle knowing that this piece needed something heavy to make this piece unforgettable!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Mountain Stream and heavily glazed in a cream. We updated the hardware using Hobby Lobby brown metal knobs for a rustic chic look.

Serpentine Dresser

I have been wanting to do a bending technique for a while now on one of my pieces of furniture. However, I felt like I needed to have a certain piece to do it- Something that has detail and curves. It could be because all my inspiration out there would have the perfect old vintage pieces that I absolutely was obsessing over. I finally found this little dresser and thought its perfect!

An antique serpentine front dresser. Five drawers in total with three top glove drawers and two bottom deep drawers. Back is stamped with No945. Refinished in a blending technique using three colors: Sherwin-Williams Tradewind, Riverway and Open Seas. All original hardware revamped in Brushed Nickel. Long legs, curves for days this momma is available for purchase! Click over to Shop Selections to view details.

Side Table

Everyone has that one weird wall in their home, you know the one where it took you trial and error to finally get it to not only fuction but flow with your space. This little side table goes in that exact spot for my client. He came to me with part of his top broken. After a little glue, woodfiller and sanding he is back to brand new!

Refinished in a solid sleek look using Sherwin-Williams Tradewind.
