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.

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!

Hutch

Do you recall the dining table and chairs that I refinished for my client not to long ago, click here to read about them: Dining Table and Chairs. To finalize my clients dining area the hutch was next on her list!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and glazed in brown. Original hardware revamped in black.

French Provincial End Table

A returning client brought me a French Provincial End Table that needed to go bold and beautiful. She is in the moving process and wanted to go bright in her new home! The before pictures may look familiar, its a piece I had refinished a long time ago. During his move, the handlers got a little careless. I had to fix the darwer, as it was cracked from something heavy falling on him.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tangerine and lightly glazed in Turkish Coffee brown. Hardware revamped in bronze.

Before:

Buffet

I am in love with the curves of this piece! I found her a few months back during one of my garage sale days and put her up over In the Studio for customization. A returning client of mine purchased her and wanted this buffet console to match a dining table and chairs I did for her back in 2014.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and glazed in Turkish Coffee. All hardware cleaned and kept original for that added sparkle. The top had been stained in Minwax Early American.

Curio Cabinet

This piece has been in my clients family for well over 100 years. They even restored this lovely gem at one point. Ready for a change and entrusting me with the task I was excited to get my little hands on her!

I had just completed refinishing my clients daughters TV entertainment unit and hutch when they realized what paint and glaze can do to a piece of furniture.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Westhighland White. Glazed in Turish Coffee brown to pop out her details. Stained the top in Dark Walnut. Revamped the original hardware, key included, in oil rubbed bronze. Lovely!
