Todd Reifers Signature Workstation

It’s not a secret that my mother is an artist specialising in oil painting on canvas. You can read all about my amazing mother on my blog post: Maureen.

A while back my mother had bought a Todd Reifers Signature Workstation for her Art Room. So when Maureen came to me and said she needs her station to have her daughter’s Second Chance Charms artistic touch, I was ecstatic! She is such an inspiration!

My mother basically gave me free range and I quote “Two toned, maybe a beige and white, and definitely glazed. Surprise me I know I will love it!”… I wanted to see a heavy glaze on her piece, especially with the doors and those pop outs. I used Sherwin-Williams Portico for the base. Glazed the body in both Van Dyke Brown and Turkish Coffee. Keeping some areas highlighted in Portico for that pop of contrast. Revamped all the knobs, metal signature plate, metal on the leather strap and casters in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Two Dipped Nightstands

Originally my client was going to have me refinished these gals in a deep teal, but when she came to drop them off she saw the Dipped French Provincial Nightstand that was waiting to be picked up by another client. On the spot she made the decision that her pieces needed to have this look. We settled on teal and orange; beautiful complementary colors!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Bosporus and “dipped” in Sherwin-Williams Yam. Replaced the rope hardware for stunning bronze half moon pulls.
