Steamer Trunk with Victorian Arch Top

This steamer trunk belongs to my clients grandmother and has been past down the generations. She wanted to give her heirloom a makeover to match her home and style.

Refinishing the inside in a brown stain using Wood Classics Weathered Teak and sealing will keep the inside healthy for more years to come. I blended three colors for the body to create a bohemian technique. I used Sherwin-Williams Open Air, Lakeshore and Oceanside. Once completed I glazed her in a mixture of both Tricorn Black and Oceanside for a darker aged blue. Highlighting a few spots with Open Air on the base and Victorian Arch Top really popped this beauty out!

Butcher Block Island

This is an exciting project that I was able to do for an existing client! I NOW have the ability to cut and bend metal and I made a shelf for this piece using two machines and my fathers help! First cutting the metal to size and blending the sides for a clean flush look!

 

I already have a few projects I plan on making, I can’t wait to show you!

Refinished this family heirloom butcher blocker kitchen island in Sherwin-Williams Secure Blue and distressed. Revamped the wicker sides in white to match the powder coated white metal shelf. Cleaned and revamped the casters in black. I left the butcher block bare wood and I was told my client has already done a few coats of oil on it, getting ready for its use in the kitchen.

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.

Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor

I am so excited to share this piece built by Link-Taylor! I had it available for customization over at In the Studio and a returning client got her hands on her. When we were discussing ideas I was so thrilled to do something bright, bold and bohemian! This piece will be in her art studio as the center of attention!

She chose the colors Sherwin-Williams Jamaica Bay, Brave Purple and Solaria. I blended the blue and purple in different areas and added yellow as an accent color. Next, I glazed her in brown to bring all these brilliant colors together for a flawless look. Lastly, adding a mix and match of gorgeous knobs from Hobby Lobby to complete her bohemian style.

I really enjoyed this process, its very freeing and forgiving. With no rules, anything goes and I was able to just put myself out there artistically. I hope you love her as much as my client and myself do!

Vanity

Bright, bold and blingy! My client received this piece for FREE from an old neighbor. She had it for many years and was ready for a change.

Refinishing this gal in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Lechmere. My client found back plates online and wanted them revamped in a Copper Rose. Adding some blingy knobs finished this gal up! The secret small drawer I painted in Copper Rose for a fun surprise!

The huge round mirror didn’t need to be refinished and will be installed when I deliver this girl!

Dresser and Nightstand

I found this gorgeous set and placed her over in In The Studio to be customized! A client snagged her up and had a vision to use this dresser as a buffet in her kitchen space along with using the nightstand as an endtable.

Blues seem to be the color choice this year, and I can’t tell you the many beautiful navy colors my clients have been choosing as of late.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Indigo. Glazed in my favorite brown color for a sleek gorgeous pop in the details. Original hardware revamped in oil rubbed bronze.
