I was tagged in a facebook post from a neighbor about someone looking for a furniture refinisher for her projects. As I was talking with my new client about her options for her television entertainment unit she mentioned wanting to get a hutch done as well. She found a hutch very fast and decided to start with that project first. A vintage french provincial style china cabinet by Fancher.
She sent me her inspirational photos and basically gave me free range. Oh my stars- I was thrilled! I knew from the moment I saw her when she came into my shop she needed to be glazed, not distressed, for a timeless- classic look.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Original hardware and door wire revamped in bronze. The top of the dresser is stained in Dark Walnut for added gorgeous flair! It will be hard to part with her. I am so thankful my new client allowed me to give this gal a Second Chance!
We can’t help but look around for a piece of furniture that is not only beneficial to what we need to use it for but stylish in every way to complete our space. Our homes reflect who we are. It says a little something about you to your guest.
As my client shopped around looking for that perfect piece to complete her husbands home office they keep finding themselves saying something that I hear all too often, “everything seems expensive and cheaply made now-a-days”. When they went home defeated they looked at what they already had and realized two things: Not only did they pay good money many years ago for their current piece of furniture, but its solid wood made to last. This is where I come in! It’s cheaper to have something you already own, refinished to match your decor. Especially when you find yourself moving into a new home, such as my client is, and changing up the theme, colors and decor.
Heavy duty, solid wood, three-piece computer desk and hutch shelves refinished in Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. We replaced the hardware with bronzed pull handles making this piece more modern. Up next is a huge veneer desk top that will go into this same office space. Using the same colors but with a different technique.
This media console is absolutely enormous! So please excuse my final photos being taken in the shop and without hardware (which is at his home.) It doesn’t give this piece the respect it deserves. I can’t wait until he is all set up in his house and I can get some beautiful pictures of this guy to share!
A custom TV entertainment unit by Robb & Stucky totaling in six different pieces, by far my biggest piece to have been refinished. (If you don’t count Kitchen Cabinets 😉 Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred-Brown. Lightly distressed in a few area where I saw fit, such as the legs and bottom molding where glaze couldn’t sit. The tops and backing were kept original finish from the previous manufacture.
My client got her piece all setup! Love how this massive entertainment unit looks in her home. Definitely lighten up her space!
