Antique Buffet- 100th Piece YTD

I am so excited to finally get to my 100th piece of refinished furniture year to date! This year I have had the pleasure to refinish many huge pieces that had anywhere from three upwards to six individual sections to create one gorgeous piece of furniture. Naturally I didn’t include those individual items, but rather counted each piece as a whole.

Browsing through my Portfolio I can’t help but be smitten from all the lovely creations- most of them client own pieces. Not only did I pour my sweat, heart and soul in each one; creating the image that each client had for their particular piece has always been a rewarding adventure.

Without further adieu let me introduce to you my 100th piece of furniture for 2017!!! An antique buffet my client has brought to Arizona from Denver. Back in her day this gal had tall legs, they were cut down about forty years ago so this piece could be used as a chest. But before the sensation swept the nation with using amazing statement pieces for Tv Entertainment Units, my clients family did just that and has many memories with this piece throughout the years. After my clients mother’s’ passing, she inherited her old friend and had Second Chance Charms refinish her so she could match her home decor and style. Wonderful past memories and making future ones to come- this gal gets to keep going looking better than ever!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Whirlpool for a soothing pop of color. Glazed in Well-Bred Brown to show off all the glorious details this gal has to offer. Stained her lovely top in Dark Walnut for some originality. finished her off with cleaning up her hardware and keeping the original pitia as much as possible.

Dining Table

I have refinished a couple dining tables that is this style; a sleek and simple design. To give something depth when there is none, especially on the legs of this piece, distressing and or glazing is always a great way to give definition. 

Refinished the base and legs of this dining table in Dunn Edwards Pebble Walk and glazed in a dark brown. The top is finished in Sherwin Williams Rockweed.

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.

Read his debut here: Dining Table

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! 

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Toasty and glazed in Black. The top stained in Chestnut. Original hardware revamped in bronze.

Bookcase

WHOA- Where do I start?! Okay, so I offered to fix the hole that was in the backing of this custom piece when my client dropped it off to me. But then we both looked at each other and realized- Beadboard! What a perfect way to add MORE character and detail to this very plain piece! (Maybe it was her idea) I’m not sure- But I was super excited to do this!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Well-Bred Brown and glazed in Agreeable Gray. I am seriously loving this dark with light glaze look!
